This article is a very good article about all that is wrong with the DCnU, especially when it comes to Dick Grayson, but also Tim Drake and the rest of the Bat-family. I wholeheartedly agree with it. I’ve been reading the New 52 Bat-comics with trepidation and reluctance because I keep hoping that they’ll come around and say ‘We were wrong, this isn’t good enough. The readers were right.’. I realise that a reboot needs some time to be introduced, explained and catch interest etc. But it’s been 2 years and it’s not getting better, DC! Tim is a sad, sad example of a great character turned into nothing. The abovementioned article goes into detail about the same for Dick, so I’ll leave you to read that for him.
Get a grip DC and make our boys into the real heroes they really are, and have been for several decades!
But I guess money is the only thing that counts for you, hm? Were you at all thinking about which characters that were popular when you did this? Did you even consider what the readers wanted? I realize that compared to many of you I’m an old woman who may like things the way they were, but I’ve been a comic book lover for over 25 years and have more or less closely followed the changes in plots, characters and canons over those years. Never has anything riled me as much as the reboot has. I know new generations come to and want new things, but DC, do you need to destroy the characters to write new stories and get a new generation of comic book readers interested?
