Subj: Which means it wasn't a very good reason at all. Period. *NT*

Previous Post

    They were doing away with the JSA characters and legacy characters and they asked Robinson if he could reboot them. Robinson tried his best to merge characterstics of characters together, so you had Alan Scott/GL, but he was an amalgamation of Obsidian and Jade and Alan Scott. Jay Garrick of Earth 2 was a merger of Wally West and Jay Garrick and Impulse. The Atom was a merger of Nuklon and Damage, as well as Al Pratt.

    It was a neat experiment that I kind of liked. It was an interesting take and I'm kind of sad that we'll never see it again.

So new 52 Earth-2 Alan Scott was made gay because Alan Scott's son in the post crisis timeline was gay? Odd reasoning. Not saying you're wrong...just that it's odd when you think about it.


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?
