DC or Robinson has not stated that Scott’s fiance dies. Every character needs motivation for their actions and if it happens so be it.
They actually released a preview page that has a statement saying something along the lines of “Your lover did not survive.”
Wow, that makes me not want to read Earth-2 now. :(
I don’t know if I’d necessarily discourage you from reading it. I’m enjoying the other storylines. The art is also amazing. I just think the Green Lantern part could have been handled a lot better.
This mass condemnation of DC Comics as a whole because of one writer’s poor choice.
Yes. It’s dumb that after introducing Alan Scott as a gay character, they immediately kill his S.O. This is not DC as a whole being afraid of having gay characters (heck if you’re reading Flash you’d know that the police chief and the Pied Piper are in a relationship), it is simply a writer being lazy.
The death of a loved one is an obvious motivation. If you lost your S.O., whether you’re gay, straight, male, female, it’s going to suck and it’s going to motivate you towards revenge of some sort. My biggest problem with it is that this is the most simple form of motivation a writer could come up with. It’s James Robinson being lazy.
You know, Super Dictionary, I might have mentioned that other definition of “current.” You know, the one that people use all the time. The one that means “now.”
But that’s just me. Green Lantern Hal Jordan is the embodiment of all things nuclear age, so it’s pretty appropriate to use him for connecting circuitry. Did he use a light construct? That would be pretty cool.
