NEW TITLE: Why It Sucks To Be A Legacy Character
Yeah, I said it. Legacy characters suck. We have great characters like Ryan Choi, Wally West, Cassandra Cain and what have you, and yet when DC reboots their continuity, they revert to the silver age versions to cater to lovesick old gasbags of comic fans. Yeah I said it. DC's going out of their own way to remind us that the best versions of whichever character they're selling is the one they created decades ago. Complete and utter bull. Let's see a GL book with John Stewart as the main GL, a Cassandra Cain Batgirl Book, or even a Wally West Flash book. What was even the point of bringing back Babs as Batgirl? I'm going to state again that Babs IS in fact my favorite Gotham character, but this is one change that has come across me as unwelcome. I am not in favor of change for the sake of change. I am in favor of change for the sake of progression.
The (superhero) comic industry is nearing 100 years, and by the time we're in the 2060's, heaven help us, I do not want to read the same "Hal Jordan came upon an alien spacecraft, and some dude named Abin Sur gave him an emerald ring that gave him powers, and now he's the greatest space cop who ever lived, or who ever will live" crap. DC has a habit that they'll not curb of shelving these modern takes on classic characters, and it's not helping the industry. S'all I gotta say.
