He also is devoted to protecting people, especially black people.

Again, not every character needs to have "MAJOR Personal Tragedy! Everyone MUST Feel Sorry for Me!!" in their backstory. That's the Dan and the Gang way of thinking, which is part of the problem with the DiDio era.

Aw, man... that's rough. I feel embarassed just reading that.

It's hard to point fingers at DC for doing something you don't like and then being unable to tell them what you DO like. (Maybe she felt pressured, I dunno)

I know it was unexpected and everything but still... not being able to say what you'd like to see doesn't help your argument any. It just makes you look like someone complaining, sight unseen, about a concept.


Sounds to me like an example of "Let's See YOU Do Better!", in which Dan and the Gang STILL lose.

Is Liz a comic book professional?? If not, then she can't be expected to explain everything she wants in a comic book, as if she was planning to write one. And let's face it, if she HAD laid out everything she wanted to see in a comic in exacting detail, they'd have put that down, anyway, so frankly, she was better off not explain it all.

And the fact remains that even non-professionals can identify that DiDio-era DC is doing things HORRIBLY wrong. Everyone who has watched enough TV and movies, or read enough novels and yes, comics, has some understanding of how story and character are supposed to work.

If you're right that just watching/reading enough stories gives you some understanding of how story and character are supposed to work, and I agree that it should, does this by extension mean that Didio et al. haven't watched much TV, read many novels, or even read many comics? Because clearly THEY have no idea how story and character are supposed to work.

I'd say they deliberately ignore any storytelling knowledge they've previously gleaned. :wink:
