Besides, I was kind of tired of J'onn being treated like the sexless mentor who only existed to give other characters advice and hang out in the background of the Watchtower (sort of like a Martian...

As much as I like the traditional Justice League line-up...I have to go with Vic.

I like both Cyborg and the Manhunter, but giving the role to Cyborg puts his character at the forefront without...

As for Blue Beetle, many people (including myself) like Jaime. It's the Blue Beetle mantle that doesn't really attract people, because whether it's Ted, Jaime, or even Dan, it's not really a famous...

I am aware of this. You came off as pretty condescending here. I really don't need you to explain things to me. Do you really think I view diversity as just being related to LGBT issues? I sincerely...

That's a good example. It doesn't really matter how Prime was intended to be, only what fans saw him as--in this case, they saw him as a cracked mirror, reflecting the worst parts of...

Indeed. I think some people might be accusing DC of tokenism because they're upset that they lost their universe and just want to criticize DC.

That's not a very effective argument. Back then, Straight White Male wasn't just the norm for male super-heroes, it was the only option. Characters' weren't intended to be a certain way sexually...

It's okay if one chooses to view him as not the real Alan, but personally I think that's kind of odd logic. The Golden Age Alan Scott, the old Earth-2 Alan Scott, and the pre-Flashpoint Alan Scott...

Whoops. :o

Yep. Experimented on, artificially aged and such (and maybe enhanced with drugs).

One of the newer retcons is that the Batman/Talia sex was consensual, and not a case of Talia drugging...

Batman being older also makes it more explainable why it's so easy for him to hang (in terms of effectiveness) with other super-heroes--he has more experience. I'd personally have him operate about 4...
