She’s talking about killing them and that is not how heroes behave.

Rules: made to be broken!

taterpie:

quote:

There was only one rule for the writers and artists, says DC co-publisher Dan DiDio: No evildoer should be sympathetic. “If they’re villains, we want them to be villainous through and through.”



Evil is relative, Johns says, and readers will even see some notorious characters actually doing something heroic through the series.

Moral ambiguity is key to the overall story line, and so is the idea of there not being one absolute good or evil.

"Our characters are more complex than that,” Johns says. "In order for us to wrap our head around a world full of superpowers, people start categorizing heroes and villains. But the lines are pretty blurry with some of these characters."

Well done, gentlemen. I can see you’re really on the same page now.

DC’s problem in a nutshell.

Goddamn, Diana.



I’m kind of impressed Geoff Johns wrote this, considering how he feels about his sacred cow, Hal Jordan.

Goddammit, Geoff Johns.
The one stonecold atheist in the JSA— and one of the few in the entire DCU— and you sent him to church.

Oh ho ho…
Kind of why I don’t read DC anymore, aside from Morrison’s work. I don’t have a hard-on for the Silver Age. I understand that the nineties weren’t everyone’s cup of tea and that’s fine, too. But they happened.
Zero Hour happened.
Crisis on Infinite Earths happened.
Accept it and work with them. Don’t retcon punch things you don’t like because “things were better in the Silver Age.” You work for a company that deal with legacy characters. You got your start at said company by creating one of your own (even if she is a Mary Sue). You relaunched a team book that is composed of legacy characters.
Use them.
(Also— diversity is not a bad thing.)

Geek Confession #3:
I cheered when they killed Superboy.
Then they brought him back. I don’t know how and I don’t even care enough to check Wikipedia to find out.
For fun, I plotted a story where he completely screws up and all of Smallville discovers his secret identity (along with Superman’s) because he’s too stupid to wear a real fucking costume.
You stupid idiot. You wear jeans and a t-shirt to school and jeans and a t-shirt with the fucking Superman shield on it when you’re fighting crime. And people think Clark’s wearing a suit and glasses is a bad disguise.

"As someone who has not purchased or rated books by Geoff Johns, you might be interested in this book that he didn’t write and is, in fact, by another writer that you have actually purchased books written by."

Wow, Geoff Johns is writing a story where Hal Jordan becomes super-awesomely powerful and saves the day? WOW THAT’S NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. WHAT’S NEXT, BARRY ALLEN IS A SAINT AND COMES BACK FROM THE DEAD TO BECOME THE SUPER-BEST FLASH?
