June 1, 2012 12:39 pm So we agree the "intent" was misguided and offensive and iFanboy shouldn't be publishing an interview with the publisher which supports such an exploitive marketing trick. Especially considering the actual real world issue this is offending and cause it's demeaning So take it down
June 1, 2012 12:28 pm @conor: yeah, yeah, I've heard the DC Nation panels. All Didio does is not answer sensitive questions or be totally dismissive. So, sorry, I don't buy it
June 1, 2012 12:20 pm @captamerica101: no. Sorry, they are not. And a delta level character who isn't really part of the green lanterns proper doesn't rate as high as those toss away joke characters even This is a real world issue we are talking about here so I'm going to take a real world tone. No one cares outside our inbreed community. If it was Hal Jordan, Green lantern A1 then that's different
June 1, 2012 12:05 pm @ Conor: If that's true and I mean it the sense someone just haphazardly let this slip at a panel or during an interview then it's commendable but I find it hard professionals can't keep something like this secret and they messed up on a mass media event It's their JOB! to not do stuff like that
June 1, 2012 11:50 am The most ridiculous part of ths thread is Paul suggesting this is for "new readers" What non-comic fan could give flying fudge about Alan Scott? Who the hell knows who he is or cares? And what world do you live in if you are sitting a home thinking this gay character reveal means anything to anyone outside of comics? Honestly answer that question You're meant to do this as a job, iFanboys, make some sense of what is actually happening
June 1, 2012 11:36 am Because it's cheap. Warren Ellis surprised the reader with Apollo and Midnighter in The Authority #7. They just happened to turn out to be gay. He didn't advertised the fact like an offensive pig Equality isn't making a special case of just how "equal" they are
June 1, 2012 11:19 am Well, truth be told, I find all of this a little personally troubling and this is coming from a totally sarcastic internet arsehole. My two best friends are my best friend from childhood and his BOYFRIEND! They have been together for 8 years now and i could be happier for them. It's a little surprising James Robinson said "One of the things that’s interesting is that people are focusing on his sexuality" considering the latest round of PR nonsense from DC. Like i said earlier, it's earth-2, it doesn't mean the same thing. In fact it means nothing, a cop-out, bullshit. The dime-store, cheap marketing people at DC (who i assume just graduated from university) really turned this pointless molehill into an offensive mountain. It's not equality if we all make a special case out of just how equal "they" are. And this interview reads like a press release. Not journalism. Very disappointing.
June 1, 2012 10:59 am Did someone take a photo of that Batman shot? Why does it look so blurry and shit?
June 1, 2012 10:58 am Skeets is right, it's not a DCU book so it doesn't mean diddly-squat. That's the way it's been for 70 years. That's why we all post theories and nonsense comments about comic stories each week because we "supposedly" know the world. It might as well be an Elseworlds books. Don't try to qualify it, It means nothing but a way to have your cake and eat it too A bullshit nothing marketing idea on DC's part. Shame on them for chasing the buck; wait, i mean, faction of a buck Because who really gives a toss?
