DC reboot

Recommended Posts

Wait, wait, I think I get it. DC has included a prominent transexual character in the DCNu. Old Chums! All Hail Queen Mera! May she regale us with awesome matching of words to 70s songs to the movement of her lips while wearing her signature red wig and bedazzled green leotard!

Wait, WHAT? Did anyone tell Geoff Johns this little tidbit? Because they don't do anything to make that clear in his book.

I mean, that's just ridiculous commitment to a company-wide policy. They have to be trolling us at this point.

And now they're cutting them off at issue 23, which was August's. New person will be going from 24 forward.

Fuck you, DC.

And then it just got even better.

At the DC Nation panel at the Baltimore Comic-Con, DC Co-publisher Dan DiDio came out going off script, and it was not to comment on who should play Captain Marvel. He addressed the Batwoman controversy, saying he had been offline when it happened but was now up to speed and continuing, on how DC had been committed to making one of their major characters gay from when they announced Batwoman, and reiterating how they had stood by the character in spite of opposition. But he went on to say that Heroes shouldnt have happy personal lives. They are committed to being that person and committed to defending others at the sacrifice of their own personal interests.

Thats very important and something we reinforced, he continued. People in the Bat family their personal lives basically suck. Dick Grayson, rest in peaceoops shouldnt have said that,Bruce Wayne, Tim Drake, Barbara Gordon and Kathy Kane. Its wonderful that they try to establish personal lives, but its equally important that they set them aside. That is our mandate, that is our edict and that is our stand.

He stands behind their gay characters 100%, he added, Name one other publisher out there who stands behind their gay characters the way we do. We put her in the book the company was named after, and the series will continue better than ever with new writer Mark Andreyko. DiDio said Andreykoan openly gay writer who is known for an acclaimed run Manhunter and the more recent The Ferryman at Image will start with issue #25. No word on the artist yet.

After making this statement, DiDio left the panel and sat in the audience a few seats from were this is being typed.

This came off like he wanted to be cheered for allowing gay characters in the DCverse.

Dan DiDio is also ignoring the fact that Marvel has been very supportive of Billy and Teddy's relationship in Young Avengers. Also, let's not forget that they're underage and lived with Billy's parents for a while. So he can come down from his high horse right quick.

DC pretty much has Bunker, Batwoman, and Alan Scott right now as far as starring characters. Marvel has turned around from when they killed off most of their gay characters in the span of a month and has more characters in more prominent roles and books.

I'm amazed they aren't toxic to kids, painted up in chinese lead or something. And DC would just say "Well comics are for 40 year olds so you shouldn't give them to kids".

Actually, that's basically what's happened. DC is toxic to an all ages audience.

I fully expect at SDCC's big Six Man Tag Match next year, Bob Harras will turn on DiDio and Jim Lee, hitting them with big boots and leg drops, before ripping off his DC t-shirt, revealing he had been with Marvel, all along. Axel will then take the dirty pin on DiDio, before he, Quesada, Brevoort and Harras announce the formation of the M.W.O..
