Don’t worry people. It’s a pyramid scheme, nothing else. And pyramid schemes, without exception, eventually crash, leaving a bunch of suckers feeling like idiots. Fortunately, this time, it looks the suckers will mostly be richer people.
I suppose if you wanted to you could argue that she has the records in all categories for someone that identifies as female? Which I guess is something but I don’t think many people care about gender-related records in something like this (thankfully).

So as someone who doesn’t actually follow comics – is Superman’s son being called Superman? If so, what’s the dad being called?

I don’t really get why people feel this way about these movies when TV shows have been telling long, complex, serialized stories for ages. In terms of total running time, the MCU movies are probably roughly the same length as, say, Breaking Bad. Why doesn’t anybody say "I can’t get into BB, it’s too daunting"?
If you are into this Marvel thing, just watch em in order like any serialized thing. It’s not that big a deal.

Does anybody else charge extra for resolution bumps? That feels scummy to me. It’s the most expensive and my least watched streaming service so I think it’s finally time to make the cut.

After a benevolence of battles royale, from Fallout 76 to Call of Duty, you might be forgiven for thinking the genre had run out of steam.
I’m not sure ‘benevolence’ means what you think it means.

That is indeed a better example.
(Not a big deal at all but I do agree with the OP that it’s kind of annoying.)

Except God of War wasn’t a reboot, it was a sequel. Your example would be more relevant if there was a direct sequel to A Star is Born, continuing the original’s story, called A Star is Born.

Tangential side point that feels at least somewhat relevant – the total US box office for 2021 was roughly 60% lower than they were in 2019. Total 2021 US BO was under $5 billion, whereas it had been over $11 billion for several years pre-covid.
I bring that up to point out that Spiderman was practically the only movie the entire year that did well. It’s a major exception, because nearly every other movie, regardless of whether it’s good or not I, is doing very poor numbers.

I simply cannot, in good conscience, support a game that is so grammatically irresponsible.
