MrBlack wrote:Alan and his partner marry and decide to foster two teenage orphans. The pair are quite troubled due to their years in foster care and eventually run away, running afoul of some supervillain in the process. Alan shows up to save the day, but in the course of the fight his powers run out of control, with Jade and Todd caught in the conflagration. Afterwards, they begin to exhibit their own abilities.
See, I hope they don't do something like that -- that's overly complex, isn't it?
What made Jade and Obsidian distinctive at all was the fact that they were Alan Scott's kids, twins, via his marriage to Thorn.
I'm absolutely fine in with Alan Scott being gay in a new, rebooted universe. But from here on, let the character have his own destiny. Tell new stories with the character.
Don't box Alan Scott in now with two kids, now that you've changed something fundamental about the character. Tell new stories with him and let the character have his own history.
