Shortest stay on a comic ever?
Source: DC Comics
DC Comics announced that it had fired James Robinson after one issue of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
. It's theorized (by us) that Geoff Johns was personally involved with the firing after learning that Sir Laser Lot, a character conceived by Johns when he was six years old that was being introduced in the comic, would not be having a major role in the series.
Robinson, according to this wildly speculative theory, was reluctant to have Sir Laser Lot marry She-Ra after a whirlwind romance and was allegedly upset that the chracter resembled Johns when he had his armor off.
Robinson is being replaced by Keith Giffen, who has promised to write whatever Johns wants as long as he sees a paycheck from it.
