Subj: Anyone else think the Mystic Trinity of DC should have been these 3?

DC has now established the Mystic Trinity as being Zatanna, John Constantine and Deadman.

Anyone else think DC dropped the ball with this? In my mind, the mystic Trinity should be:

1. Dr. Fate (WHY is he not considered a part of the mystic Trinity, I'll never understand).

2. Zatanna

3. John Constantine.

Sorry, but Deadman is hardly ever used as a character while the 3 I mentioned are, plus Dr. Fate is THE most powerful Sorceror in the DC Universe, far above Zatanna and Constantine. Why does Deadman rate while Dr. Fate doesn't?

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
