I never get bored with your replies, Syxx. They're so amusing so keep it up. :-D :-D :-D

This isn't the disaster it's being made out to be. By appealing to the Twilight demographic, all they mean is that they're trying to grab an audience which is A) younger B) interested in supernatural romance C) willing to read an ongoing series. There are no plans to make Clark sparkle, or turn Diana's romantic interests toward necrophilia and pseudo-bestiality.

I was actually at this panel. What was disappointing was that when they asked Liz, "Well, what do you as a female reader want to see?" the best she could do was mumble a list of books she liked and the ones she didn't ("I didn't like the direction Catwoman went, Wonder Woman was okay..."). She presents it very differently in her blog, but they room was filled to the rafters with second-hand embarrassment.

This is only one book, and DC has quite a few well-written books which appeal to the female demographic. Readers can always count on Batwo-- oops. Never mind.

Are you kidding DC? Do you even know who your female readership is? You guys are like Republicans, completely out of touch with your constituents. Give us a strong female heroine, not a stupid romance novel!

See, this is an example of what some of us have been saying about character handling. All characters don't have to be made into clones of Batman -- in this case, given a Batman-like "My parents are DEAAAAAAAD!!" origin -- in order to be interesting.

The question is... are you excited about DC's plans?

A better question would be is how likely will DC fuck up their said plans?

No, not asking for a Batman clone, just something different than "I wanted to DAAAAAAAAAAAANCE!" OR, if they were to stick with that story, then to develop it further somehow.

(I feel like that origin needs some sort of shoutout to jazz hands or spirit fingers or something)

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.
