It definately seems like everyone has an opinion on this new character. Personally for me (although like the idea of were people in comics) its too early to tell ultimately to where this is going but the fight with Vandal savage was good in that it showed some small ammount of Wildcat jrs charcter. My question to the board is ....Wildcat Jr....good or bad idea for a character??




It does not matter to me if Tomcat turns out to be the greatest legacy character in comic book history, I still say it's a bad idea. I have brought this up before on the board but it needs repeating - one of the most interesting elements of Wildcat's character is the fact that he has no direct legacy but at the same time has hundreds of indirect legacies in the other heroes he has trained to fight. Making him father to none but "uncle" to many makes him a very unique character and gives him a lot of room for interaction with a broad range of younger heroes. I liked the concept of the "nine lives" for Wildcat that was introduced in the "Crisis Times Five" storyline. It went a long way to establish why he was still around and, again, make him a more unique character. Now this has been taken away from him in a very stupid story and he's been saddled with an out of left field heir who just happens to be a meta for no apparent reason AND turns into a giant cat to boot! It seems to me that writers have been on a concerted roll over the lsat few years to make Wildcat just as boring as a lot of the other DC characters and I think they need to back off. If they are hell bent to get rid of the current Wildcat then I say just let Ted Grant walk away and never be heard from again. Don't burden this already badly maligned character further with a half ass death story just to try to sell books.
