  1. Considering black representation in the Flash...

    Considering black representation in the Flash family, I would much rather see more done with XS, who I actually think is a cool character, than continuing anything with this fake Wally West.

    What...

    James Tynion writing DC's most popular regular book? They really couldn't get someone better to do that? Dude is average. Tony Daniel is a pretty good artist, but him drawing Batman seems pretty...

    This is what I think. This character is such a horrible idea in the first place, and was used primarily as a weapon against the real Wally West and his fans. And I'm not a frothing at the mouth...

    You literally cannot cite a connection, call it a gag, and then say there is NO connection and be rational at the same time. But whatever helps you sleep at night. There's no point in me going back...

    Luke Fox cannot reach trinity status unless he becomes more popular than Bruce Wayne, becomes the center of his own new Batman mythology, and becomes Batman for good. Otherwise, he's just some guy...

    There you go. Connection made.

    Since this is kind of being talked about...I've actually sort of been pondering the idea that new readers are never going to get into DC and Marvel, at least not at a rate that actually matters. They...

    Well, to that, I say they the BEST way. Though, I will grant you that sales for a popular character can dip if the particular story they are in is poorly done. Also, to address one of your earlier...

    If she's so popular why was her comic series selling so low? Or better yet, why did her comic series go away entirely, not to be replaced by anything else? Answer me that, Mr. Green Lantern.

    Regarding Jessica Cruz:
    She was created by the (at the time) Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment. I'm going to guess she was made SPECIFICALLY FOR things like DC Superhero Girls, and that she...

    What you're saying is false, otherwise Flash wouldn't have have asked Diggle where his ring is. There's obviously some connection between John Diggle and John Stewart. Just the courting and Easter...

    Katma likely isn't returning. Romance-wise, if DC was anal about me using Hawkgirl, I'd probably pair John Stewart with Harbinger from Crisis on Infinite Earths, borrowing the idea of his Arrow...

    Over-saturation. That's typically what drives things that were once popular into dormancy in entertainment. People eventually have their fill of something and get tired of it. That's what happened...

    You're implying these other black characters are somehow better off in these regards and they're not. At least we actually know there are more plans for Naomi stories, while Vixen and John Stewart...
  15. Poll: I think the right answer, at least at this...

    I think the right answer, at least at this juncture in time, believe it or not, is Naomi.

    First, we need to dispel this myth that you have to be around for 50 years to matter. That's dumb comic...

    You might want to look into Kwanza's stuff if that's what you're into. I can't tell you how good it is, but by the sounds of your interests, he might be up your alley.

    Like I said above, these...
  17. Poll: My personal gripe with the type of stories you're...

    My personal gripe with the type of stories you're suggesting is that I think they're tired as hell. Nearly every single notable black comic book hero has either done them or intrinsically has overt...

    Okay...well...I'm happy you got your view out there so I know exactly what it is I've been dealing with when discussing with you.

    -____________________-

    Oh my goodness. See, this is a huge problem here. This promotes an idea that if you're black, you must LOVE something. You must love slave movies, gang movies, rap, black...

    *shrug*
    Well, I'm not advocating a name change for the character. I don't really care what's done with him because I don't even like him. I never really thought about how I would handle the...

    My thing is...you can have a loud and proud Black power superhero. But I don't recommend making that your "main black guy" if you're going to have a main black guy. Not when his contemporaries, like...

    Has it ever occurred to you that there are people looking for African American superheroes who aren't interested in the same old tired race relations stories that a character like Black Lightning is...

    This is 1000% true, and a big reason why I don't care for Black Lightning or his name.
  24. Poll: No it isn't. It's the same thing. A ridiculous...

    No it isn't. It's the same thing. A ridiculous name that is a constant reminder of a character's race.
  25. Poll: That might be true, but that was then and this is...

    That might be true, but that was then and this is now, and sensibilities are quite different. That's what makes Black Lightning's name very dated. It isn't timeless like "Superman" or "Green...
