@spiderbat87: True, it seems like Batgirl was a last minute replacement for the Huntress after she was changed to Helena Wyne and tied to Earth-2. Such a last minute change that nobody thought to tell Gail.

I am amazed at how active DC is at managing their comics now. Definitely a different compnay from what they were a year ago.

Completely different. Gail writes Batgirl's comic but she doesn't write everything Batgirl does. She doesn't have to be notified when Batgirl makes an appearance elsewhere in the DCU. Lobdell, on the other hand, actually writes Teen Titans and had no idea that Statis would be joining the team. There is a big difference.

Hes a TT now? Why? They did this same shi in the last canon before 52.

Of course she does, how are they meant to keep everything canon with out mistakes if characters are poping up all over the shop without the writers knowing. Bat Girl is a member of the BoP and Gail wasn't even told.

Gail doesn't own Batgirl, it's not up to her where she appears and doesn't appear. She may be informed about what's going on, but she doesn't have to be told. It's the same with the Batman books. Batman has 4 ongoing titles, but not every single title reflects his current battle with the court of owls, does it? You think every Batman writer checks with every Batman writer to make sure it's ok what they write? That would just be foolish.

That's because there all Batman writers, you think Bendis adds Spider-Man to The Avengers without telling Slott that he has? What happens if they come up against say Apoc in a storyline, you think Slott will just telepathically know that's happened? what happens if Slott writes him in to one of his storys he's going to need to reference the Avengers fight. Of course Gail needs to be told how the hell is she meant to write a character and not know what she has been up to. Don't you think the Action Comics and Superman writers tell each other what has been happing in there book? Of course they do.

@MonkeyToe: It is SOP for the writers of characters to be told when those characters become involved in other books. It helps keep continuity straight.

While the other three Batman comics may not be involved in the Court of Owls storyline (Detective and Batman TDK will be involved in the future), the writers are well aware of what is happening. It is Mike Mart's job as group editor to make sure that the other writers are kept up to date for the sake of continuity.

Obviously they don't. You stated the proof yourself. Gail didn't know that Batgirl was going to appear in Birds of Prey, so no they don't have to tell her, just like they don't have to tell Lobdell that "Hey, we're adding a new character to your team." I'm sure that writers have to submit their story ideas to the editors and the editors then give the red or green light. But it is obvious that a writer doesn't have to tell a fellow writer they are including a character in their book.

Obviously it is not SOP because we have two cases on this one forums where it didn't happen. As you say, it is the editors who keep the continuity straight not the writers.

#19 Posted by MonkeyToe (386 posts) - - Show Bio

I didn't flip my stance. Writers don't check with writers because it's not their job to maintain continuity, it is their editors jobs. This is the same thing I have been saying. The writer of BOP doesn't have to check with Gail over their usages of Batgirl BECAUSE THE EDITORS WILL CATCH IT.

#20 Posted by jsphsmth (1136 posts) - - Show Bio

@MonkeyToe: The Batgirl BOP fiasco was an anachronism. Huntress was originally supposed to fill the role in BOP. DC then decided to go ahead with Earth-2 and all of a sudden she was not available. Dwayne needed a cape for BOP, so Batgirl was given to him.

Nothing about that situation was SOP, so you cannot reference that to support whatever your arguement is supposed to be.

Lol, what? I can't reference SOP but you can apparently? Because it is evidently NOT SOP for writers to coordinate because Gail had no idea Batgirl was appearing in BOP. It's not up to the writers, it's up to the editors.

Not big on Static, but he has the potential to be plus the Versitility is too much for the Team. With him there, it would bring too much control to the team, too much comfort, which doesn't fit with the whole rag tag team vibe going. Plus, I still think Star may be going through a depowerment.

I do believe that someone one said 'Porky Pig had a full career going from him, but he only showed his best off as a sidekick' or something. What I'm saying is perhaps without the right author, Static can't have his own title, but as a supporting character he has a chance.

Well, given dat #8 is d last issue of Static Shock...we/SZ nd 2 relive ourself of a lil rant.

Rant commencing...

Rozum who was supposed 2 b d writer of d buk never had a chance 2 put any of his ideas in d buk except 4 naming a fyzix skool after McDuffie & hving Hardware as Static's mentor, other dan dat d rest of d rubbish from was forced down Rozum's throat by McDaniel(d buks terrible artist & a very inexperienced writer compared 2 Rozum) & d editor who DC decided 2 support.

Rozum was creatively sidelined untop of which he could tell hw rubbish d story was which is y he left d buk...& guess wat soon after Rozum left Static Shock DC announces its cancellation.

If DC was smart dey shud hv fired McDaniel & Richardson(editor) of d buk...bring bak Rozum as writer accompanied with a different editor with Khary Randolph(cover artist of tatic Shock) doing interior art. But since DC went thru all d trouble of hiring a nu writer(Marc Bernardin) den y not gv d nu writer a chance 2 put his nu ideas in2 Static Shock rather DC decides 2 cancel d buk almost as soon as d nu writer was hired given only 2 issues 2 write.

It is incredibly unfair 2 d nu writer Marc Bernardin.

McDaniel finishd his arc in #6 when DC had decided 2 cancel d buk dey shud hv done so den but y go thru d trouble of getting a nu writer/creative team giving reader/fans false hope dat d nu writer might turn things around betta dan d McDaniel nonsense only 2 tell all(nu writer & readers alike) dat d next issue of d nu writer will b his last without even giving d writer a slightest chance of developing sum of his ideas 4 d buk.

Den DC plays hypocrites in d Dwayne McDuffie "League of 1" tribute in d Justice League: Doom dvd of hw much dey were apparently "impressd" & "luvd" Milestone xcters.....wat a bunch of liars.

Hek with so many heroes headed 2 NY it would hv been a gr8 opportunity 4 a multi-title crossover...Supergirl/ BB/ Hawkman/ Static & Captain Atom as hinted in d preview..

Static is a xcter dat had a several award winning & nominated cartoon show dat lastd 4 seasons with d re-runs still getting gr8 reviews over sum newer cartooons & yet DC refuses 2 treat dis xcter(& Milestone Media properties) with dedication & respect. Hell, d dvdd's of all d full seasons hv not been released in all dis time.

Dis mk u ask...y?

Is it bcuz Static is not Superman or Batman?

Or perhaps bcuz Static does not look like Superman or/& Batman?

Rant ends!

It will end after issue 8.

That makes a great deal of sense. I thought it ended after issue 6.

D title shud hv ended on #6...y did DC bother getting a nu writer on #7 & den announce cancellation on #8?

DC absolutely didnt not gv d nu writer a chance 2 put his nu ideas in2 d buk.

DC is giving Green Arrow a 2nd chance with d new writers hving 2 not worry about cancellation & yet d Arrow tv series has barely started production. Hek der is no guarantee dat d tv show will b as successful as Smallville yet Static already had a successful cartoon show(y cant DC MK A LIVE ACTION STATIC SHOCK TV SERIES?) but refuses 2 get d same support & attention 2 Static.

Hek arent successful cartoon xcters supposed 2 get nu animated shows & movies every few years?

Batman & Superman & JL & whicheva keep getting more & more animated movies & tv shows....y not Static?

Static Shock was luvd by many, very well recommended by d masses & critically praised....but y refuse 2 release d dvd's?

When other DC animation series r going on DC was simultaneously pushing comix based on those xcters so as 2 capitalise on d viewers who may or hv bcum fans as such willing 2 get comix based on d xcters from d animated show....y didnt DC provide d same advantage 4 Static @ d time of d Static Shock tv show?

After all d gr8 work on DC's animation & comix McDuffie has done 4 DC.....@ d very least DC just refuses 2 provide any real credible support 4 just 1...only just 1 of McDuffie's creations.

Just like Static said 2 Superman in d toyman ep of Static Shock: "wat does a brutha(Static refering 2 himself) need 2 do 2 get sum recognition(...from DC)".

It is under such conditions where many notice d pattern as shown above dat sum people scream racism (which may not b exactly appropriate)...but wat would u(DC) expect fans 2 think when u(DC) continue d trend & refuse 2 provide any explanation or any answers 2 any of d above questions.

The last issue was weak. It didn't even go out with a bang. LOL.

Well, Static already had one big bang in his life, I'm not sure he needs another...

Waka waka!

Because of the variable levels of support they have from the fanbase? From the sales level meriting those kinds of things? People would be much more likely to watch a series featuring a character they're basically familiar with than with a relatively fresh face... honestly, static was pretty lucky to get a series at all. His series might have been undersold and abbreviated, but there are many character, regardless of their backgrounds in diversity, that have not had that shot. Martian Manhunter only got an 8 issue mini-series... Black Canary has similarly not maintained an ongoing series... the pattern isn't one of intended racism, it is one of sales analysis. The fact that there is a correlation in those two trends says more about the viability of race in the fanbase than it does about the company's intent.
