@X35: yeah, this is gross. Especially when a dude has to YELL IN HIS FORUM POST TITLE TO DESPERATELY TRY AND GET A MOD'S ATTENTION

It's very upsetting to me that there hasn't been more word from the programmers about what they're thinking of doing to help combat this. It was wonderful news that they're able to rollback the pages. But unless it's prevented when it happens, people will not stop deleting pages, and some other good hearted people will rush to the rescue, and waste a ton of time and create confusion all over again for nothing.

@Billy Batson: How did you find the Zatanna and Catwoman cache? I really want to help you guys combat this before more pages disappear, but my searches are coming up empty!

I'd say, the programmers need to take action RIGHT NOW and just stop all wiki edits from going through. Drastic measures are needed until they (we) can sort this all out. Years of careful work done by thousands of passionate people lost is a friggin tragedy.

EDIT: Nevermind BB, I'm surfin' with Mr. Peabody and Sherman in the wayback machine. Let's fix this!!!

She also thought Spongebob Sqaurepants was a evil show because of all the sexual innuendo.

Man, I must be missing something. I mean, "Sandy Cheeks" is one thing, but I'd definitely not call Spongebob raunchy by any means. ;)

Aside from that, I'm really shocked to hear all of the people on here saying that their parents disapprove of their hobby. It baffles me that people can be so irrationally afraid of something that is clearly beneficial to and beloved by their children. I guess we all just need to remember this when we have kids of our own. Comics can't hurt you!

...Maybe it has been true for a select few people...

not even this, really. If violence in media caused the people consuming it to behave violently, everyone on this site would be a murderer (or at least a costumed vigilante) ;)

Humans aren't robots that can get programmed by a comic, movie, tv show, etc. And I'd even add that through fiction, we gain a level of empathy that wouldn't exist otherwise. We can learn lessons about violence without having to experience it for real.

To the OP: read/watch/do what you want. You definitely sound thoughtful enough to make decisions for yourself. (and as someone mentioned above, maybe when you're living on your own you should definitely check out Lucifer, it's brilliant!) :)

@The Mighty Monarch: I understand your (and others') arguments, but the crucial thing to realize about this new Justice League is that there are NO founding members.

These heroes basically stumbled upon each other while dealing with various threats. It just turned out that it was all Darkseid related, and when they saved the day they were honored by the president as a team because they (including Vic) were the ones who helped. They didn't create the team themselves. There was no decision process about who is good enough to be a founder. They even all seem to agree at the end of Justice League #6 that they don't want to be a team. But when they're needed again, they answer the call.

It doesn't matter that Cyborg didn't "earn" the position, because it didn't even exist until he was there. But he's there now, and I'm glad to have him.

Also, I don't write for Screened.

Hahaa! Nothin' but love G-man, I hope you didn't think I was being too accusatory. Just saying that the show really has nothing to do with comics other than a character writing one, which doesn't come into the plot too often. But I do think it's great to get interviews with celebs who even peripherally dig comics.

(also, if I had any chance to talk to Jorge I'm sure I'd be posting as many interviews as possible) ;)

Keep up the great work!!!

hmm... am I the only one, or does this interview feel more like an ad for the show? I've only seen the first 2 episodes, but aside from about 2 short scenes in a comic store, comics were not a part of the show at all.

Not trying to get all conspiratorial, this just seems like something that would fit better on Screened than here.

THIS HAS TO BE A MISTAKE!

The costume design itself is okay enough (sans the plastic man belt) but the quality of the colors, inks, and even the lines is atrocious.

What could have went wrong? DC uploaded the wrong image and now can't take it down? There has to be some explanation for this.

didn't know Lee was such a Masters of the Universe fan ;)
