Good lord I can't understand comics fans, nothing they do makes sense, Forever evil and the 3D cover shit were actually successful.

That said I'm glad to see sales starting to tank.

Seems a mix of the comics, the In-Name-Only movie and the BBC series the Fades.

Welp, I'll be watching it (along with Gotham and Agent Carter), though it'll probably only last a season or so.

>In general, what do you feel like you guys have integrated from the fan reactions to the show? Are you reacting to the popularity of certain characters, and how careful do you have to be to not overdo things?

>I don't know. I think there's probably only one episode -- and again, aside from kind of small things are Easter eggs that have been inserted in episodes -- there's probably only one episode that's pretty meta that's kind of a response to a lot of criticisms that have been leveled at our show. It's this "Young Justice" crossover episode where they're going to show up and kind of chastise our Titans for being terrible superheroes. "You're giving all these superheroes a bad name, and you need to get more serious!" And that's the episode where they want to get more serious.

>But overall, I think we've like managed to keep ourselves in this absurd little bubble of dumb jokes and not [be too affected]. We do get on Tumblr and everything, and we like to see what fans are reacting to and all that, but I don't want to fall into the trap of thinking the Internet represents everybody. There might be small things here and there that we respond to, but they're never broad. Episode ideas generally just come from just trying to make each other laugh more than anything. We're in season 2 now, and I think we've written almost 80 episodes, so at this point, it really is just like we've got to keep each other interested. We're telling a lot of stories and each one has to be funny so we definitely try to keep each other laughing.

>Moving on from green female characters they'd like to fuck to male green characters, Mazin and Goyer started discussing Martian Manhunter. When asked how he would adapt Jonn Jonn'z for the big screen, Goyer responded "How many people in the audience have heard of Martian Manhunter?” When the audience responded with cheers and raised their hands, he then asked "How many people that raised their hands have ever been laid?”

So in New Guardians, Kyle wakes up on a barren planet that looked like every vision of a nuked out Earth. While investigating the ruins he notices his white lantern abilities seem to be creating life in the form of fleshy plantlike growths in his footsteps. On a hunch he burrows down caverns of bone to find a massive heart-like rock at the core. But using his abilities to revive it turns out to the a bad idea. Now, what makes this important is the backstory the planet divulges while turning on Kyle. Once it was part of an entire system of sentient planets. And one of them in particular is a established character.

Frank Miller on Batman's appeal.

>It’s a variety of things, really. But mainly it’s in a way he’s a superhero naked, in that he is plainly out for revenge, so much so that he actually dresses like a villain, and throws bad guys through windows, there’s all kinds of rough and tumble stuff. I was also in love with the idea of a character that could not fly. The man needed a car to get around. And he got by on wits and skill alone. That’s why I couldn't resist having him beat the crap out of Superman just once, i had to see that just once. You kind of have to be of a mind to like that sort of a character. But Batman is also so personable. You could do him 20 different ways, and they could all work. He’s like a giant diamond. You could slam him against the floor, throw him against the ceiling, but you can’t hurt it. Everything from the Adam West TV show to my stuff and dozens of others, Jerry Robertson, each contributed to this ongoing myth that has survived and been revitalized on an ongoing basis.

As part of my summer long Crusader Kings 2 vision quest I've been abusing Netflix on the TV/part time second monitor, and one of the things I've been watching is all their DCAU stuff, which is Batman Beyond and both Justice League series. I'm almost down rewatching Unlimited and, after a 3 hour debate with Tiki, we both agreed that the most baffling decision the DCAU writers made was having Jon pick Hawkgirl over Vixen.

I really want to be hopeful about Tom Taylor sharing Earth 2 writing with Marguerite Bennett, but she has almost no track record to check thus far and it looks like the actual Earth 2 is just going to get blown up anyway.

Oh, they could have done lots of stupider things. Like back before the reboot, they had her get angry at people for asking her for help, on the basis that she was both wearing the Superman S and was openly using her powers. Like, she was willing to accept billions of dollars of Batman's money and training from Wonder Woman, but actually using those things to help other people? PFFT!

And then there was the crystal spikes thing, her on-again off-again plans to kill Superman, her beating up every superhero she could lay her hands on (with them instantly thinking that she's awesome after she did so), doing some pretty heinous stuff like selling Kandor to some Legion bad guys for clues as to where her parents might be (threatening to break Power Girl's arms if she attempts to go back and free them in the process) or physically downing Airforce One during Amazons Attack... yeah, pretty much everything from her reintroduction up to just after her fight with Cass Cain, where Sterling Gates kind of rejigged the character to make her less.... entitled and douchey.

It's difficult to explain since Superboy became a goddamn mess. There's more than one Superboy. You got Jon, the son of Lois and Clark from an alternate future who was abducted by a spiky winged evil science guy called Harvest and brainwashed into a metahuman killing machine. Jon is naturally unstable due to his mixed genes, which leads us to Kon. Kon is a clone created as a template for more stable DNA that can be used to cure Jon. With the secondary purpose of also killing metas. Kon escaped and kinda sorta tried to be a good guy until a Scott Lobdell event erased him from existence. Then Jon took his place. All of this required a lot of time fuckery. Jon eventually reformed and travelled to the present, where his body became linked to the consciousness of his own "past" self locked deep within a stasis pod overseen by Harvest's goons. Jon fought his way to the stasis pod, tried to interact with it, and was shunted to a pocket universe where Kon explained that the minds of all 3 Superboys have been fused into one body due to their ridiculous timey wimey bullshit. Immediately after that page the evil "past" version of Jon takes over the gestalt and vows to ruin everything.

It's all very Kingdom Hearts 2.

Teen Titans...OLD?!

A mind-bending clash with Mad Mod ends in a shocking betrayal that leaves most of the Titans as senior citizens!

Their only hope lies with Raven, but she's got plans of her own.

A heartfelt, musical misadventure featuring some of the strangest guest stars of them all:

Sharp critique of Multiversity.

>There has always been a silent agreement between Grant Morrison comics and Grant Morrison readers that one thing will not be considered in evaluating these grand struggles for the evolution of the superhero concept: that we won’t just elect to go do something else. That we won’t decide that the best way to deal with the problems of superheroes is to stop reading superhero comics. And this I’ve come to see as a narrative fault, because Morrison keeps going on and on and on about evolution, and yet the superhero decades have proven circular in their advancements, so that Nu 52 DC reads quite a bit like Wildstorm circa 1995, and as a result I find myself standing outside, wondering “hey, if nothing really changes, this guy can just position himself, profitably, as a shaman in perpetuity, right?”

>Oh, it remains pleasant. I still like reading some of the comics Morrison writes. The Multiversity is very cozy, efficient entertainment. I certainly don’t think he’s saying anything unwise, thematically. But if I don’t think he’s exactly part of the problem, I’m really no longer buying Morrison’s solutions, and these are works of solutions. Thank heavens the Gentry hail from “behind the invisible rainbow,” because the 52 universes of DC comics are negligible force in the wider culture. You can and should call for less sexism in comics, but if DC is making enough money from goofy shit aimed at gaming bros, the line is gonna reflect that. The cinema did not awaken to the glory of superheroes as an Idea, it realized that superhero comics were adaptable to preexisting action/fantasy formulas while allowing for easier franchising returns – and where that money goes, so will those comics owned by Warner Bros. and Disney. That Grant Morrison represents that part of the corporate body which calls for revolution does not mean that his scripts exist apart from the function of that body.

Hrrm, reminds me of that Countdown: Arena comic, where they had things like the New Frontier version of Wonder Woman fighting the cowboy one from Justice Riders and the Victorian version.

Hated that as it spoilt good comics by association, now this new one looks like it's going to spoil things (although I miss them, like Cass Cain, Steph Brown's Batgirl, Renee Montoya's Question etc.) that I'd rather they just leave alone.

As if it's just Arena, it'd just be an exercise of killing off the older versions to prove that the newer ones are better. Plus, this whole thing's being organised by Scott Lobdell, who thought that it'd be a good idea to introduce the Young Justice show's version of Artemis Crock into his Teen Titans book... only to kill her off after four pages in order to give Tim Drake a person stake in defeating the bad guy...

...A bad guy who he should have been invested in defeating anyway, as he'd been abducting children and forcing them to fight to the death. If, as a Bat Family Character he somehow doesn't take that personally, he's doing something wrong.

I can't help but feel we're in for a repeat of Countdown: Arena, where they took a bunch of Elseworld books (including New Frontier and Gotham by Gaslight) and made the characters fight each other for reasons.

All it managed to do was stink up great books by association, so yeah, I think that all the people who've also been looking for the return of preboot stuff like Renee Montoya, a Cass Cain/Steph Brown team-up and the like are going to be disappointed.

Oh for sure, it's going to play out for the old universe like it did for Earth-2 Superman in infinite crisis.

But that's not why it's a terrible idea, it's a REALLY bad business decision, every DC comic is going to stop for somewhere between 2 months and everything is going to be Convergence.

A) You are literally fucking over anyone who has a pull list.

B) You are hipchecking any ongoing stories (as Gail mentioned)

C) The story picks up two threads, Futures end, which was more unpopular than anything DC has printed since 2011 and Multiversity which while very good is difficult to follow due to how it names itself and has a story the average reader won't give a fuck about outside of "Cool other universes"

D) DC is already chugging on about 2011 era sales, it's 4 years later, they are still calling everything "New" which is embarrassing considering almost all new readers have dropped off.

E) Like thirty other things I've forgot on the creator and distribution end of things that will compound this blunder.

>But the real news here is what’s going on behind-the-scenes: DC’s newest slate of creative teams features an almost unprecedented number of women and minority creators. For the New 52 relaunch, less than 1% of DC’s writers were women. In this new announcement, six women (or 17% of all writers, a big deal in the traditionally male-dominated comics industry) will be women. Even more importantly, several of the female writers will be writing female protagonists: Meredith Finch will be writing Wonder Woman, Gail Simone will continue her work on Secret Six (which includes several female characters), Amanda Connor will co-write Harley Quinn and the Harley Quinn/Power Girl mini-series, and Genevieve Valentine will write Catwoman.

>Today’s announcement is also a big deal for Asian American comic book writers and artists. Greg Pak, who has done phenomenal work for both DC and Marvel, will be continuing to write Action Comics and Superman/Batman. The big news is that Gene Luen Yang, author of several award-winning comic books including American Born Chinese, Boxers & Saints, and The Shadow Hero will be making his DC Comics debut to take over the ongoing Superman series. DC reports that Yang will be charged with helping to depict Superman “in a more contemporary light”. Ming Doyle, one of the industry’s few Asian American female talents, will also be joining Constantine: The Hellblazer as a writer, and Dark Universe as an artist.

>Teamed with artist John Romita, Jr., Yang will be the first Asian American to write the tale of DC Comics’ flagship superhero; this is also symbolic because Superman’s story — with its immigrant narrative overtones — has long spoken to Asian American fanboys.

...

>As far as Asian American creative talent are concerned, Yang, Pak and Doyle will also be joined by several Asian American artists in driving the behind-the-scenes work for DC. Talented Asian American artists Bernard Chang, Sonny Liew, Ardian Syaf and Billy Tan will pencil Batman Beyond, Dr Fate, Batman/Superman, and Green Lantern, respectively.

Although I will admit that it's only tangentially connected with the original comic, chances are they couldn't have called the show "Teen Titans" due to the original show or the TTG shorts, and since they needed a recognisable name... I'm not sure what the alternate title could be.

I liked that the show had a lot of depth behind it, as the creators did a good job at making it clear that not everything that's going on can be seen in the show or comic (Wonder Woman debuting in the 1940s at the age of 16, for example, with her being an active superheroic presence in the YJverse for the past seven decades). Seemed like a wider world than even the comics DC was putting out at the time, really.

Was the show perfect, by all means no. Was it better than a lot of other shows at the time, very much yes. The show seemed to have the same problem early Korra had, in that people didn't seem to want to wait for character development to happen (Conner and Wally being kind of dicks when they're first introduced, for example), and wanted them all to start one way and STICK WITH IT.

I thought that the Lex reveal worked as it made a nice comparision to Conner's relationship (in season one) to Superman. Clark didn't want to be involved with Conner as he was essentially a child who was created without his consent and knowledge (the fact that Conner was being conditioned to kill and replace Superman along the line didn't help, either), which makes sense from a human standpoint, even if some parts of the audience thought that this made him "neglectful"...

...Even though it took a while for Clark to warm up to Conner in the comics too. Lex being welcoming and warm to Conner, in comparison, played with Conner's issues regarding his "parentage" and was intended to make him more open to Luthor's manipulation (just as M'gan's fear of being outed as a White Martian or Artemis' fear of rejection regarding her family made them targets too).

Because Cassie's dad was basically an anonymous non-entity, and because it fits into the mythological motif, making her like a female Perseus or Hercules.

Conner's original 'dad' was a major presence in his solo book. And making Lex a DNA donor just makes him a bit too creepy obsessed with Superman.

Uh that was one of the major themes of the show. And they took a ton of stuff from the Young Justice comic. Red Tornado, the Super-Cycle, Snapper, every team member except Empress and Ray, the Happy Harbor hq, Harm and Secret. Also Peter David.

>Conner's original 'dad' was a major presence in his solo book.

No, he wasn't. He died a couple months after the Superboy comic began without ever appearing in it and was rarely mentioned after that. He was barely above a non-entity. As this thread demonstrates, people complain about his removal from Kon's origin but don't even know his name.

The Cassie retcon in the comics is dumb because it complicated her origin with no benefit. The original version worked: Normal teen girl proves herself a capable hero to both Wonder Woman and gods so the gods give her powers. Adding "and she's Zeus' daughter" layers in further contrivance because writers can't leave well enough alone and let some characters come from a normal background. Just ask Terry McGinnis.

And "offspring of Zeus" is such a cliche with these characters. Why make her like Hercules. We already have Hercules.

It turned out rocky for the first few years, with some good books. Then DC mostly got its shit together (I don't think it had a controversy in almost two years) and released more decent books. Of course there's still shit (The Earth 2 line, current Wonder Woman), but the good/bad ratio definitely increased over the years, at least in my opinion.

I totally get why New52 is still disliked, but, IIRC, it has yet reach the terribleness of Identity Crisis, Cry for Justice and Rise of Arsenal.
