@thejman1990: Lobdell never said that, Jason said that because that is what Kori told him. Lobdell hinted in interviews that Kori's memory was intact but that she chose to forget. This is what Tynion did. She doesn't live in the past, she lives for the here and now and is not held back by her past because she insisted to Roy that he didn't need to know because it was the past, issue 6 is till canon and meaningful. Also, I think you are pretty much proving my point by being biased against Tynion. Lobdell was hated so badly for what he did in the title, but now that a new guy is on who really doesn't need to continue what Lobdell did, he is being hated by the fans, that is a nice contradiction. James is actually taking what Lobdell created and making a story out of it. Everybody is hating on him now solely because he isn't Lobdell. I honestly believe that James is writing what Lobdell would have wanted. Scott set up the conflcit with Roy in issue 14, where there is a small inner dialogue saying that he might need some help. This could be the bounties on their head, as there are cameos for both Deathstroke and Hugo Strange in issue 16.
I honestly want to hear something besides that James is ruining the title. Give me some legitimate criticisms and stop thinking so close mindedly. Everything that Lobdell did is intact I don't know why everyone keeps saying that James ruined it. I also want to say that I don't think James is perfect, these past two issues were far from perfect and he definitely needs to step it up. issue 19 was ok, but I didn't care for issue 20. I am a fan of what Lobdell did, but also a fan of Tynion and am willing to at least give the guy an arc before I say he is ruining a series.
Not so. Lobdell said in early interviews that Kori's mind didn't work like earthlings. She knows people as sight and scent, blah blah blah...In the first issue, in her inner monologue, Kori said that she could barely tell Roy and Jason apart. Also, Kori's flashback in issue six shows her having happy memories AND STATING that she had good memories of Grayson, but didn't remember he was. He was SEEN in her flashback, in her bed. Working together with Roy as a team. She was SMILING when she remembered this and was telling Jason about it. She said that when she saw him, she would know him. It wasn't written as something that she didn't want to happen or as something that would destroy her. AND why would somebody live on a deserted island and have a stash of EVERY superhero outfit that the guy who, if you remembered him would destroy you, in her possession. I just see this as a contradiction in writing, plain and simple.
