    Default What Would You Do With Matt Fraction?

    So, one of the good things going on at DC right now at least is the influx of new talent that I never thought I'd see working at the company. One of those names is Matt Fraction, who was one of my favorite writers back in his Marvel days, especially his run on Iron Man. Right now, he's working on a Jimmy Olsen title. However, I don't know if it's supposed to be an ongoing or a miniseries.

    I remember a few years back when he was still at Marvel, he said that if he could write any DC character, it'd be Wonder Woman since his daughter is a huge Wonder Woman fan. So, since G. Willow Wilson appears to be leaving that title, maybe put him on it? I also think his humor could be well-suited for a Booster Gold series. Or maybe if they ever choose to give Wally West a proper ongoing and not just a mini, Matt could be a good fit for that. So, what title would you like to see Fraction write?

    I would put him on an indie, irreverent, kind of book since those seem to be where he feels most at home with.

    I do think he could write a good Wally.

    Fraction's Jimmy Olsen book is a 12 issue maxi-series (and it's great).

    I would love to see him on a Booster Gold and Blue Beetle team-up series. I think he could work well with a Barry Allen Flash book.

    I'd put him on Nightwing. Then eventually i'd have him do a Nightwing/Jimmy crossover.

    I know he already has another prominent ginger friend, but I definitely think that Dick's relationship with Jimmy Olsen should reestablished given how often they appeared together in World's Finest.
    It's the Dynamic Duo! Batman and Robin!... and Red Robin and Red Hood and Nightwing and Batwoman and Batgirl and Orphan and Spoiler and Bluebird and Lark and Gotham Girl and Talon and Batwing and Huntress and Azreal and Flamebird and Batcow?

    Since when could just anybody do what we trained to do? It makes it all dumb instead of special. Like it doesn't matter anymore.

    Put him on a Green Arrow and Black Canary ongoing. Also have him ask KSD to stay on Aquaman a long time.

    I didn't like him writing Hawkeye but I could see him writing Green Arrow.

    I would love to see him handle a Roy solo book with Lian.

    Agreed. I'd be interested in reading how he writes Roy & Jade (A.K.A. Cheshire).

    What would I do with Fraction?

    Well, I would get him to finish Sex Criminals, for a start.

    As for DC, I'm liking a number of these possibilities. Wally West, Blue and Gold, Green Arrow, all of these could work. A revamp of JLI, maybe? A way out science fiction comic might be a good fit too; something from the Fourth World, perhaps.

    As it is, I'm more than happy with having him focusing his energy on Jimmy Olsen.

    Nah, I still think Barry Allen needs a very classic, old-school writer. His general style is a much more obvious fit for Wally.
