There's nothing hokeyer than female, boy, and dog versions of popular characters. As soon as Hawkboywomandog or the like shows up in a DC comic, my brain immediately quits paying attention and I'm taken right out of the story. Legacy characters are bad. Boy sidekicks are worse. But dogboywoman clones of characters is just too fucking much. If there is one thing that will forever keep comics marginalized as a medium for manchildren, it's this shit. Ironic that Lemire is acclaimed for his serious business hipster literary comics and then he signs on to write this otherwise mediocre embarassment.

Y'know, the fact that you hate these derivative characters is a pretty hipster attitude.
