Dan DiDio is gone, and I think he was the one who was pushing "everything but white males" on small kids, which was a complete waste of resources. Such things might get rethought now, especially as they cause the further enriching of Johns.

When Guy is making regular appearances in a book again I'll believe it. The collapse of sales hasn't made Marvel re think that strategy so I doubt DC will either.

I'm still looking forward to a time when John's grubby fingerprints aren't still visibly all over the GL franchise.

That would take a colossal universal reboot for that to happen.

Anybody know what the douche has been up to besides not making his deadlines or being able to fuck up the GLC with his movie script?

His Three Jokers starts this month. Or maybe it's out already. I wouldn't know. Ever since UCS took over from Diamond, I haven't received a single shipment.

Moreover, even if there is something particularly egregious to Ray Fisher's accusations (and I highly doubt much heat comes GJ's way), that doesn't mean that DC would shed his characters/concepts with GL. Despite her dubious beginning, Arisia is still around 39 years later after her creation. If that's the case, issues like EVS's Comicsgate comments and the conditions on the set of the JL movies aren't going to cause DC to cut ties with narrative elements that will still make money for the company.
