sorry but DC lost me me when they became the new DC and rewrote every title and threw away 75 years of history. The titles now are about alternate universes but they cant even admit it because the continuity is so screwed up. Hey I am gay and I was pissed when they made the Golden Age Green Lantern gay, there was no point and it took away Jade and Obsidian.

Technically it was just under thirty years of comic continuity. This isn't the first time DC wiped the stage clean and started back to "year one".

Not to mention Jim Lee and co's idiotic idea to integrate the Wildstorm characters into the DC Universe, which nobody was asking for at all. I mean it's bad enough he cancelled the WS imprint but merging both universes was obviously something he believed the fans would like which they obviously don't for the most part.

Well at least COIE had good writing and was done in a more organized and structured manner as opposed to the rushed and half-assed hackjob Flashpoint and New 52 were.

They didn't decide to remove Jade and Obsidian because Alan is gay. Robinson decided to make Alan gay because Obsidian isn't (so far) part of the new DCU.

Obsidian should still be around. It doesn't make sense to have a new gay character is that means you're eliminating another gay character .
