September 6, 2012 1:32 pm Hopeless is a writer on the upcoming Point One so it's probably one of those characters. I think he's most likely to be writing the Cable story for that book based on the rest of the creative teams/characters involved in the Point One. So I'm guessing either Cable or a new X-Force book led by Cable.
September 5, 2012 6:09 pm Worst announcement yet. Dan Way is terrible.
June 1, 2012 6:36 am Why didn't he just say Alan Scott is gay at the convention then? Clearly he wasn't waiting for the issue to drop since the news is out now. Instead he said “one of the major iconic DC characters” will be revealed as gay so it would become a story.
June 1, 2012 5:41 am My complaint isn't with the change itself, it's the marketing of that change that offends me. DC announced that they were going to change the sexuality of one of their big characters in order to get the mainstream audience to notice them. Then it turns out this "big" character is basically an elseworlds character. There's no risk in making a non-mainstream character gay and there's even less risk when it's a character that's not even in the main DC universe. It's a safe change that DC is using to show how progressive they are. It's a cheap tactic to try and combat Marvel's gay marriage announcement. And by making Alan gay (not to mention younger) they most likely got rid of his son Obsidian who was already a gay character. But now DC gets to make the headlines claiming "Green Lantern is gay" and pat themselves on the back without having to piss off the fanboys by making the actual main Green Lantern gay.
June 1, 2012 5:29 am I never claimed it was or wasn't a huge book. Your reading comprehension is dumb.
June 1, 2012 4:05 am How progressive of DC to make a non-mainstream alternate earth character gay.

February 1, 2012 8:04 am Alan has spent most of the last decade writing some very, very good stories about characters created by other writers, including Alice (from Wonderland), Dorothy (from Oz), Wendy (from Peter Pan), as well as Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man, Jekyll and Hyde and Professor Moriarty. I think one loses a little of the moral high ground to say, "I can write characters created by Jules Verne, HG Wells, Robert Louis Stevenson, Arthur Conan Doyle and Frank Baum, but it's wrong for anyone else to write my characters." -JMS
November 14, 2011 5:13 pm andrea continues to be the worst character on tv. other than that, really good ep. Daryl and Shane are the standouts of the series which is odd considering they don't exist or don't exist very long in the comics.
