    You keep bringing back old villains, and then introduce more universes to try to make the plot bigger.
    And then there will be some form of 'crisis on infinite earth' event to clear up the whole mess. Followed by some reboot.

    DBZ is already set up for some crisis/flashpoint event through a myriad of time travel/multiverse mechanics.

    Pretty sad they had to put Chichi as Wonder Woman because have no good female fighters in the series. Well, I guess now it can be updated with Cauli or Kale?

    Dragonball has already gone beyond Silver Age Superman, unless you count Superman with Sword of Superman.

    Goku, Vegeta, Gohan and Android 17 are Universe level threats.

    At least they haven't gone White Crown Phoenix or Franklin Richards level crazy yet.

    DB deals with the problem of power inflation in a different way. Rather than retconning they ignore the fact any villain could simply tap their toe and destroy the earth, letting Goku and Vegeta die in a vacuum. DB doesn't care about consistency.

    Just be like Abarai Renji. Just relax and enjoy yourself.

    DB characters have still not shown to survive a planet exploding in their faces. In DB characters I mean the main cast.

    They can, it's ridiculous to think that they can't especially at this point. It's just that the lack of oxygen will kill them shortly after.

    Oh I agree. But all the same, Resurrection of F still sticks with me. Vegeta should not have died that fast of lack of Air.

    I know. He could've just held his air for a bit and have the others save him too, but nah... they had to play dumb with the deus ex machina bullshit.

    Come back when you can tell how Mephisto somehow was able to rewrite all of the 616 Marvel universe, somehow overpowering Eternity, Odin, Galactus and all other cosmic beings and gods, just so that he could erase all events related to Spider-Man's life with Mary Jane. Then we can talk about Dragon Ball being more consistent in comparison to comics.

    Edit: "inconsistent"
    I read that as consistent :facepalm

    Ignore all I said then.

    Popular US comics have been going on for half a century. You can't keep a story going on for that long, you reboot it over and over.
    The issue here is that Dragonball is slowly reaching that phase.
    What happens when Toriyama dies?
    Someone gets to own the franchise and you can guess what happens then.

    If Last Jedi sounds like bad fanfiction, that's because it is bad fanfiction.

    I'm waiting to see what Capcom does with Dante in the upcoming game.

    When Goku randomly starts shooting a mini Goku out of his hands and inventing new powers every episode he'll be at the same level of silliness as silver age Superman.
