Yes. They make the decisions, not you. And its really not their priority to cater to a C list character's overzealous fans. They are making a smart decision by not letting some weirdos with a teen girl fetish make the decisions in their company.
Overzealous? The moment Stephanie Brown fans become like H.E.A.T. and start issuing death threats on Gail Simone ala poor Ron Marz is the day you are correct in that assumption. Until then, they are what they are.. fans. Nothing more. Vocal ones yes, but then in this day and age of internet anyone can be vocal.
But overzealous? Hardly. Overzealous is what H.E.A.T. did in the 90s barely without an internet. Overzealous is refusing to sketch characters of a certain era. Overzealous is denying growth and stamping out any creativity one era had.
In a few years will Jaime remain as Blue Beetle? Will Damian be around? I really don't know because how the current regime of DC bungles their next generation of heroes. It's not even been ten years and we've had two origins of Jaime. We've had how many of Superman?
