    Blue Beetle is winning on Twitter with 67% but Suicide Squad is in the lead on Instagram and that will get more overall votes.

    I have ZERO interest in reading a Harley book, but I would definitely pick up the Kyle/Kilowog and Blue Beetle books!
    I would also check out Robins just out of curiosity.

    I'll try being nicer if you try being smarter.

    To be honest i would have purchased all these if they had been produced as limited series. Some had some interesting pitches. Robin was my least favorite but i would have still picked it up.

    Yeah, Twitter's useless. Zatanna won the previous round with 60% against Green Lanterns but it didn't seem to have made a difference against the Insta numbers.

    Looking at how this is going, people sadly have no right to complain about too many Bat books anymore when DC gives them the option to choose something else and they don't show up for it.

    Batman haters are a minority because how else would Batman be #1? I doubt that most of the people who vote for Harley or Robins are actually going to buy their books though. Still wish this Round Robin didn’t have any Batbooks in it, not like that corner of the DCU is hurting for rep.

    It's a vicious cycle. DC mostly exposes people to Bat characters. So those Bat characters become the most popular. So then DC decides that if Bat-peeps are the most popular, why even bother with the rest. Reset to DC mostly pushing Bat characters.

    When you have an entire stable of brands, it is bad business to rely on just one franchise. Marvel imploded in the 90's when everything was only about the X-Men (well, there were other financially stupid decisions that contributed but overreliance on X was a factor too). And now DC is wondering why their comics readership is not growing.

    I really hope Robins doesn't win. I'm not a hater and i'm a fan of all of them but thats the one we don't need. The other characters on that list deserve a shot.
    Reading List (Super behind but reading them nontheless):
    DC: Green Lantern, Wonder Girl, Far Sector, The Other History of the DC Universe, The Next Batamn, Robin, Nightwing
    Marvel: HiXmen, Miles Morales: Spider-Man, Immortal Hulk, Daredevil
    Image: Killadelphia, Bitter Root, Excellence, Decorum
    IDW: TMNT: The Last Ronin
    Other: Seven Secrets, Jember, Hawi, Watchman, Black Hammer

    It's also written by Tim Seeley who had rapey ladies name Dick Grayson's butt cheeks on panel.

    Yes. I wish people had made some noise about that. I'm so sick of the "Dick's so hott, horny women assault him for the lulz" recurring theme. It's the third time something similar has happened after Mirage in the 80's and Tarantula in the 00's straight up raped him.

    Please stop this. Grayson was written by two writers.

    Your choice to selectively pick and choose who demonise says more about you and your bias.

    Deliberately Calling out Seeley whilst ignoring King [the other half of the Grayson title] speaks volumes about your bias.


    Objectification is common place in comics esp with the female characters. It's not cool but it's a very common thing in comics.

    You are mad? You want to name and shame creators who you think are problematic? That's your choice but be Honest, be fair.

    Stop this.

    There was also that issue where Selina attempted to force herself on him. Rape and assault are serious and should not be trivialised.

    however there is a HUGE difference between rape, assault, attempted rape and spy school girls admiring/fangirling over a new gym teacher played for comedic effect.

    joe public has now upfront and confidently told DC what they want?
    Can you imagine what DC's line would look like if they used popular consensus for all their decisions?

    They can leave the rest of the DC characters at the door
