    It's no one else's fault but Johns for writing John Stewart the way he did. I mean, he often just ignored John, but when he did write him it was usually terrible. For example, when we do get into...

    An Elongated Man detective text adventure done in the vein of Snatcher for Sega CD, and with graphics and sound on par with something done on the PC Engine or Sega CD.

    So, it seems to me what you're getting at is that the exception is all thanks to Geoff Johns, but the numerous repeated blunders with black male characters that Johns has been involved with are all...

    Well, DC wasn't writing Blade: The Series, but Geoff Johns was. And we saw a similar pattern to how he handled Blade to how he handled John Stewart. It was even more glaring with Blade, because it...

    Regarding a third Cyborg ongoing comic series-
    I have a feeling DC's push for Cyborg as his own intellectual property ended when the Justice League movie tanked and his movie was cancelled...or just...

    I don't think that's true. Cyborg's first series didn't sell well and DC turned right around and gave him another solo series. That didn't sell well, and they made him the leader of a Justice League...
  7. This isn't going to matter to most comics fans,...

    This isn't going to matter to most comics fans, but coming from a creative background, I think it's very...interesting that I've never seen anything actually original from Geoff Johns, given the body...

    It takes some special kind of effort to throw Blade the Vampire Hunter--a proven money making A-list character that, in actuality, is the one that resuscitated the comic book movie genre and paved...

    I would say Guy was at his peak in the late 80s and early 90s when written by Steve Englehart and Gerard Jones in Green Lantern titles and Giffen, Dematteis, and Jurgens in Justice League titles....

    I point back to the Harley Quinn example. Her New 52 design carries over nothing from her original design, except for pale skin. Yet, people have no trouble identifying her, despite a cartoon that...

    To a good deal of people, the underwear is actually cool, otherwise we wouldn't have seen it repeated so often and to such great success, with characters as close as DC Comics' Batman to as far as...

    A big difference I see is that the Superman shield actually looks cool. I'm seeing people defending a design choice that even they admit is not that appealing looking. Also, the Superman shield is an...

    Heh. I remember hearing that a black Firestorm had a kissing scene with Stargirl on Legends of Tomorrow but it got mysteriously edited out of the final cut :p

    The idea doesn't interest me, and I don't think it's a good creative idea. However, I'm generally pretty indifferent beyond that. The Justice League hasn't done anything good for well over a...

    I'm guessing it's going to be Hal and John and the movie is axed. But Geoff Johns and Greg Berlanti? Wow, that is a double whammy right there. I don't know if John Stewart or any black man can...

    Caucasian Thunder -
    "Realizing that the super heroes were neglecting the upper middle class suburbs, he dons a suit and uses his electrical powers to guard the neighborhood. "

    Then add in about...

    He could be. It actually sounds to me like the Green Lantern Corps movie could have been turned into this show instead. Two Green Lanterns sounds kind of like the buddy cop dynamic the movie was...

    No it isn't. It's drawing overt attention to a character's race as if that is their most important feature. That's what they bring to the table above all else. Now, that might be fine for a couple...

    What would be problematic is if we had many white super heroes going around intentionally throwing their race in our faces with names like Anglo-Saxon Green Lantern, White Pride Batman, Aryan Thor,...

    I do have a problem with so many black characters being called black something and having racially charged motives and origins...like Black Manta, who wanted all the black people to live underwater....

    My thoughts are that Cyborg doesn't really work that well as his own leading character in the DCU. Granted, he wasn't designed to. He was supposed to be a man-monster type on a team. Based on that, I...

    Considering how Cyborg, by himself, is not a strong brand at all, and that DC has made some attempt for the character to have his own brand, to negative results, I think it's worth experimenting with...

    The GL in Cosmic Odyssey was planned to be Guy, but suddenly Giffen and Dematteis got big plans for Guy and blowing up planets didn't coincide with them, apparently, so Guy became hands off....

    You're not understanding something. I'll go slow.

    The writer...when he created Rose Hardin...he KNEW he was going to ultimately have her be John Stewart's girlfriend. Not Hal Jordan's. He KNEW he...

    Well, I don't know about other people, but so long as Cyborg has that faceplate, I don't think I'll ever be able to get into the character. It's just...not cool looking. This is perhaps a bit of an...
