Jude you can offer him a voice all you want but he's the ultimate example of internet bitching, you offer them the soapbox and they'll make every excuse not to take it.

It's the anonymity. The internet/tough guy scenario.

Different mindset of what makes a successful book back then quality over quantity in starman. Now seems the opposite is true to be a success in the 52.

Speaking on the designs of the Earth 2 cast, Robinson thinks that Jay Garrick's costume is one of his least favorites. "I cared greatly about how they looked. I've been far from happy with Jay Garrick, but I think Alan Scott's costume is quite good," he said. "For some reason, they were adamant about the costume for Jay Garrick. I hate the gold stripes up the leg. That drives me nuts."

So ... about those gold leg stripes on Jay's costume. Clearly they were homaging pre-reboot Jay. Anyone else losing sleep over it ? :P

I wonder what made him leave the He-Man mini after only one issue?
