@g_man: lol my immediate thought..."oh goodness"
batshrine's forum posts
I agreed with everything but the altered Batman action figures. I still cherish my Batman and Catwoman pharoah action figures. They looked so epic that I wished I saw an animated version of them!
Nobody wants to see Diana with Bruce besides die hard Bat fans like yourself.
If they balance SM/WW relationship a bit more they maybe a match made in heaven. I just feel DC will not but all the effort into a temporary relationship, unless it becomes a huge profitable thing for both characters... Well SM/WW is selling more then their single issue.
My only wish for SM/WW is if we can spend sometime with Wonder Woman rouge gallery for a bit after the Doomed event. Wonder Woman villains would make up a good plot for both characters.
So earlier I complimented someone for giving a really mature response. I wish I could say the same to you.
First of all you have no statistical evidence for your first claim that only die hard bat fans want to see WW and Bats. But even if we take that statement as fact (which I know neither of us has the data). Lets just see the numbers. Who for the past 3 years has constantly been selling the most out of those 3? Batman. Who has had a movie make over a billion dollars in the box office? Batman. Who has the most comic books coming out each week? Batman. So even if just Batman fans want to see this happen as you say, then thats a lot of people...
And to be honest, we speak of WW as if she needs to date one of those two. Lets not forget what WW prolly want, and what WW represents. She is her own woman. It is insulting to think of her as a prize for one of the big two. And we all know they all have significant others that will ultimately prevail over them dating each other. Though if two of them must date, I still side with WW and Bats :-P. Or why can't all 3 of them date each other?!? Thats possible lol.
My only wish is for a WW/Bats comic since there is a Supes/Bats and a WW/Supes. That dynamic sounds like a lot of fun and I wanna see it handled by a good writer who likes both of the characters (so def not Geoff Johns).

I know that this is supposed to instill confidence...but it really has had the opposite effect on me.
hahaha you make a good point since this is the official press release. but i think they were just referencing most recent works. Hope my rewrite helps instill confidence, or at least shows that these people can either do amazing or really bad stuff and its just luck of the draw.

I could see how this age Batman is arguably at his best with top selling movies, and a comic that has been a top seller for the past 3 years straight (thats impressive). But I would argue that the late 80's was also Batman at his finest. Getting award winning tales of The Dark Knight Returns, and Year One, alongside with Batman (89), you have a character that just wasn't popular, but was rewriting the superhero genre.
I still prefer X-Men franchise to the Avengers one...way more interesting despite these "changes" people are complaining about the characters.
