    I recently reread Isabella's Black Lightning solo run from 1995. I thought it was pretty good, but nothing special. Since he started out in Metropolis, was that series the only one based in Brick...

    It's really sad to me that newer readers see Tim Drake this way.

    He was an interesting, independent character when he was first introduced, and through most of the 90s. He had three miniseries,...

    I can't speak to the response to Crisis, but as for Hal going bad, the internet was a thing back then. Emerald Twilight and its fallout received plenty of hate and vitriol. So did the JSA's treatment...
