“Of the Trinity, Wonder Woman is my favorite because her ideal is the one I agree and can identify with the most. Batman and Superman don’t believe in killing, but WW understands that some people are just monsters, and if they can’t be contained, they must be destroyed. I mean let’s be real, some villains just can’t be locked up or rehabilitated.”
She also understands the price and the weight the decision to end a life carries and is willing to take that cost upon herself from the good of others if it must be done.
This is why Wonder Woman is such an amazing character.
In light of things that have happened recently, to Gail Simone more specifically, I thought it was wise to repeat myself. Although I disagree with how they handled Barbara Gordon and the character of Batgirl, the way they let go of Gail Simone is unacceptable, immature and unprofessional on so many degrees. It only proves that DC not only does not care about female characters, but also it’s female staff as well.
Personally, I’m glad that Batgirl was selling so well to show DC that we want female characters to be showcased more, but to be honest: I’ve never read it. I have not read anything from the New52 because of what it stands for. Some have said it was very good, others have said it was meh quality to say the least, but if it was selling better than most… why fire the person responsible for it?
More importantly, why are you still buying into this crap? It stands for discrimination, sexism, racism, transphobia, homophobia & going fifty years backwards. ”But,” you say, “They have a Muslim character.” To that I say so what? So that suddenly erases all the bastarding they’ve done? So that suddenly erases the undertone sexist & racist nature of their comics?
We control the media. We get to decide what we consume. They are a service industry, and I’m not going to lie down and accept whatever bullshit they give me. So we’re gonna have to take things to the next level:
- The obvious one: stop buying their comics completely. Do not support your favorite artist or writer anymore. It’s obvious that they don’t care about quality.
- The little things: do not buy any DC products. Anything. From. DC. Action figures, posters, video games, t-shirts — literally anything with a DC logo on it, stop buying it.
- The big one: stop going to DC Comics movies. Don’t go see Man of Steel. Don’t buy The Dark Knight Rises DVD. This is where they get their money.
- Annoy them: send them letters. And not just one letter, send ten. And keep sending them. They don’t have to be eloquent, just make sure the point is you’re not putting up with this bullshit anymore. Tweet them, email them — just make them pay attention.
- More importantly, tweet Dan Didio.
- Lastly, inform people who may not know what DC Comics is doing. I know this will hurt comic book stores, but you can help them by buying Marvel, Dynamite or other independent comic books instead. I realize that Marvel isn’t perfect either, but at least they’re trying.
- As always, be polite. No cursing, no name calling, but make them listen. We have the power to end this reboot. And that’s fine if you don’t want to do anything, but then I don’t want to be associated with you anymore. Because that means you’re okay with sexism, racism and a whole laundry list of things wrong with DC.
Make sure that you make it clear to Dan Didio that you don’t want him in control anymore. He’s the problem. It’s him that’s causing all this ridiculous bullshit. Some say Scott Lobdell is to blame, but Dan gets the final say on everything. Most of Scott’s changes are just what they are: changes. Albeit, horrible, sexist and ridiculous changes, but just changes nonetheless. He’s not erasing characters’ from story lines in the name of being iconic.
I don’t know what you have to do, but I’m done with this bullshit. I want to save my favorite characters, but that can only happen if everyone wants to save them, too.
I always wanted Tim and Kara to end up together.
Superboy Annual #1
I…oh. Is this a thing?
Stop wasting your time making out with him and go have awesome sex with Cassie, okay
You know that that is the correct decision to make
Get yourself to Titans tower and go have kinky hate-sex with your girlfriend damn it
I don’t know about any of that, but I’m enjoying the image of chick with a sword as the conquering
Wait so DCnU Superboy takes place before Superman starts wearing the traditional supersuit?
good sweet lord THE ENTIRE POINT OF SUPERMAN is that he is HUMBLE. he may have all the powers in the world, but he’s not full of himself—in fact he’s a little awkward.
I AM SO FUCKING DONE WITH YOU, REBOOT. /flips desk
I am so glad that I stopped reading DC before the DCnU started.
This is so funny to me, hahaha. Aquaman can’t grasp the concept of Batman not being foreveralone.
YOUNG MAN, THAT ROPE IS NOT A PLAYTHING
I love you, Aquaman.
Gods I miss this Aquaman.
Doing it this way because I don’t want to be dumping my frustrations with DC on the awesome charmingpplincardigans
After reading the link I am still not completely satisfied. I think it’s because Simone keeps saying that “Oh but the entire DCnU is being deaged” when in the Batfam Babs is the only one deaged. I will give Simone that across the board some of the DC characters have been deaged and given new back stories. But not everyone reads all of the books a company puts out, Some people only read the titles that are directly associated with the characters they like. So when you take DCnU Family by Family, You have the entire SuperFamily being changed in major ways, The FlashFamily is almost completely different, The WonderFamily has had their origins all fucked up, The Green Lantern corp hasn’t really changed at all from what I have heard except Jade was never a member, and then you come to the BatFamily;
Bruce: Pretty much the same
Dick: Nightwing again, otherwise pretty much the same.
Jason: Not so angsty, but pretty much the same
Tim: Pretty much the same, But he was Red Robin all the time, and Young Justice didn’t happen.
Damian: Pretty much the same
Babs: Is not the strong, independent, Equal and Peer of Bruce that we have had for the past 20+ years, she is not a mentor to young women becoming crime fighters, she is not the badass leader of the BoP. I will admit that it is interesting to see how she is dealing with getting the full use of her legs back and the fact that she knows it can be taken from her one way or another. But it really didn’t need to be written. Especially not when no other character is being changed in the BatFamily in such a major way, with the exception of Selina Kyle from what I understand.
I will admit that I thought that the DCnU was going to be a craptastic shitfest when they started talking about it at the end of Brightest Day. And I borrowed the first issue or two that my friends had gotten and I never read any after that. I am not going to go into how I think that with the 52 relatively unexplored dimensions that the DCU had the Company could have made DCnU their Ultimates in one of those dimensions. I will just say that we can’t say that all of the characters in the DCnU are new and different when they aren’t and when the Company seems to have cherry picked what characters they are going to drastically change, and when those that they have picked seem to be either female or have had a strong female partner.
I love the fact that the Blue Lantern Corps are arguably the strongest Lantern Corp other then the White Lanterns
Arrow starts tonight on CW. I’m not at all interested in this show until he starts using the boxing glove arrow. Someone let me know when that happens.
Unlike my buddy Nerdology, I’m super excited for this.
The first episode was pretty okay, and it did have a non-traditional arrow, but I do need to see some more trick arrows.
Well I know what I’ve been told
Gotta break free to break the mold
But I can’t do this all on my own
No I can’t do this all on my own
I know that I’m no Superman
