    Default Jo Mullein: A Character Only an SJW Could Love

    Am I the only who doesn’t like this new Green Lantern, Jo Mullein? Everything about her background says SJW.

    Let me rephrase the question: how could anyone not like Jo Mullein? Far Sector is fantastic.

    I’m sure the story’s fine, it’s this character I have a problem with.

    If it's a discussion you're after, you'll want to explain your issues in more than just 'don't like 'em.'.

    Fine.

    I’m all for diverse characters, but I don’t like how these writers are pushing her sexuality and race as if those are the only things that makes her an interesting characters

    Sounds like I should check this series out then, as seeing how it's not 2014 or whatever year being socially conscious wasn't "cool."
    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.

    Being socially conscious is one thing, pushing a leftist agenda is another.

    No, you're not the only one it seems. I've heard some similar discussions about this in another thread. But I think it was more towards the writer than the character. And I remember when some of the posters were making a case about it, they were called trolls.

    With that said, I have a feeling that this thread is not going to go well.

    Read the original Vertigo Hellblazer sometime if you want to see what pushing a “leftist agenda” actually looks like. Or GL/GA by O’Neil.

    I guess I’ve never understood why writing a character one way is fine, but writing a character another way is trying to conform to someone’s agenda. If Jo Mullein was Joe Morgan, straight white dude, this thread doesn’t exist. Why is one form standard, and the other an ‘agenda’?

    EDIT: I can’t spell.

    Because comic writers care more about earning woke points than telling good stories.

    i'm not wild about yet more human GLs in general so I'm not familiar with this series or character.

    But how is her mere existence as being a non-white male pushing a leftist agenda?

    You didn't even read the story from the sound of it
