Michael Marte must have a helluva job. Beneath Didio, he's possibly one of the most influential people at DC Comics. His title? Editor of the "Batman Group," which makes him responsible for a lot of what we read in the Batman books... and I'm not just talking Batman himself...I'm talking everything Bat-related. So I guess if you want to love somebody, (or hate on 'em) he'd be your go to guy, right?
Stressful job. I checked out his blog this morning and I couldn't believe how utterly crazy his job must be...and upon reading it, I realized that the main focus of his day, (the only thing that was on his more than once,) was the future of Batgirl.
I'm not exactly, um....inconspicuous about my personal affection for this character; so having read that she really doesn't (and won't) have a solid role in "Battle For The Cowl," I'm disappointed. I guess I could deal with it if I felt like they had actual PLANS for her character, but it's still (her future that is,) all up in the air.
I know a lot of people might not like her, but I love her. She's one character that truly encompasses perseverence and is a lot like Batman. She has his stubborn hard headed nature. She's suffered and come past it,...lived without having parents...and when she could have gone rogue permanently she didn't. Having put all her hardships behind her, she still came out on top.
Dear Mr. Marte: Please don't kill her off.
