    And the funny thing is, I could see that happening. Already headquartered in the Devil's Den, about to be a wrap.

    I think making Alan Scott gay is pretty stupid and offensive to the people who have followed the character, because that's not what they signed up for.

    What DC and Marvel REALLY need to figure out is how they can create new characters and lore and actually have those work effectively instead of molesting and bastardizing their existing characters and pushing away their existing fans. I guess there just hasn't often been the perfect storm of creativity, support, economics, incentive, and whatever else to organically facilitate that.

    Honestly, I don't read their stuff much at all anymore. I don't buy any books regularly and just flip through older stuff every now and then, usually just to see how other people were creating comics.

    I definitely don't like the out of control woke stuff because it comes off as so inorganic and the priorities are all in the wrong places. Like, it doesn't matter how woke you are if your story and art are shit. Or if you're doing it with inconsequential characters in inconsequential stories, and so on.

    That said, I don't even think that is the biggest problem. Most of the time the stories just aren't that interesting to read and there's a big 'been there done that' feel to the whole thing. It's like the comics have gotten too corporate, and they're stale, sterile, boring, and just in the motions. Race swapping and sexual orientation swapping are just part of those motions these days.

    and more power to'em if they do but nothing says you have to support'em, if you don't like what they are doing then just don't buy it (it's what i did) sure it may not stop'em and it's not as fun as a tweeter-war online but it's better then looking like a "bigot" to people you don't know or even care about

    plus in the long run where our money goes is the only real freedom we have now a days so don't piss it away

    No. If I heard of Radiant Black, it escaped my notice.
    It's equal parts GL, Ultraman, and Power Rangers. Pretty sure the guy that wrote Rise is writing it. Probably my favorite indy book ATM.

    I just had a GREAT idea. They should introduce a son of Todd Rice. One that he had mystically with some woman so he didnt have to touch her. Like Nightshade could be the mother and he accidentally knocked her up when they were both using their powers once.

    Then magically age up his son to adulthood... and then have him come out as gay. How awesome would THAT be?!?!? Son, father and grandfather...all gay! Like a lineage of wokeness! The first ever all LGBTQ super hero family!

    Oh shit! Make Jade come out as a lesbian and you could have the DC gay Fantastic Four! Do better DC! Give the fans the gay super family they didnt know they needed!!

    If the cave painting has the hunter sleeping under a tree while the mammoth walks by, that's probably me.

    Sometimes when I am in public and I see a dude in drag or a feminazi that looks like a walking meme I will chuckle too loudly or visibly roll my eyes and the Mrs will shush me and remind me I cant mock these shitheads anymore.

    If you ever see me with pink hair you know it's the end of the world so prepare for the rapture. Some of us in this dwindling society still act like men. My wife complains that I'm no longer the sexy metal head with long pretty blonde hair she married, and along the way I turned into a short haired gun toting redneck. I prefer to think that I am a multifaceted jewel of manliness and nerdiness.
