redconfession: ([DC] Pimp Damian)
[personal profile] redconfession
So my immediate reaction was "wow, this is going to bite them in the ass" followed quickly by "DC never learns, do they?"  But now that I've had a few days to mull it over and read the releases and such since, I think I've settled on a reaction.  I feel jipped.  I haven't been into DC as long as I have Marvel (not that I've been into either very long), but I've been reading a lot of current and older issues and developed a lot of feelings for certain characters.  A lot of these characters have been released in the last five years, and they seem to be the characters DC is going to dump as soon as they hit the redo button.  This seems to be especially true for the batfamily.  Cass had already been cast aside by the DC writers for years before FINALLY being brought back...  Almost to inevitably be tossed aside once again, as they give roles to the old favorites.  Same will go for Damian, and Steph, who are finally finding their stride in their respective titles.  The Secret Six isn't one of the most popular titles DC has, and although it has a strong fanbase, it's not that large.  That and DC doesn't seem to be fond of anything other than happy or self-deprecating superheroes, they'll probably get dumped too.  DC has always hated Jason Todd, and since they brought him back they have had no idea what to do with him, so he will inevitably get tossed again too.  No official word on Jaime, but as DC keeps claiming to be "diversifying," he should be all right.  Same with Gavril who appears to be on the new JLI team.  God knows what they'll do to Booster.

Basically, it makes me wonder why I've invested in these characters at all, since they plan on redoing everything anyway.  Why should I bother picking up any issues until September?

And why announce the JLI at the end of Generation Lost at all if it's all part of their bold new reboot/launch/whatthefuckever?
