The CW has officially picked up "Arrow"

Quote:
“After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.“
Hopefully they actually call him "Green Arrow" and not just "Arrow" like it seems.

I'm trying to figure out if the certain allusions in the Supergirl pic is deliberate or not. I laughed when I seen it.

Her costume still sucks, btw.

Anyone have any experience using the DC app on a smartphone? Gave a single issue a whirl yesterday and I quite like the way it follows comics frame by frame. But is it actually worth using on a regular basis?

Note: aware you quite easily get comics in .cbr format etc through unofficial channels, but I hate reading them on a PC monitor.

okay, please help the lower level comic book geeks...what are the allusions to? Is there some running gag revolving her? Or is there some defining moment from her earlier run?

or does she like a lot of cock?

I'm incredibly lazy and can't be arsed reading back. What are the standout good titles from the New 52?

I've drifted away from DC too much, need to get caught up.

Yeah, Batman is alright mainly due to the fact that it has barely been rebooted. Not as good as before Flashpoint, though.

Read the first issues of Swamp Thing and Animal Man. Not really sure about Swamp Thing, but Animal Man seemed alright. Probably try another couple of each.

DC Comics plans to reintroduce a character as gay in a future issue, it has been revealed.

Co-publisher Dan DiDio previously said that the company would not change the sexual orientation of an existing superhero and would bring in a new one altogether.

But at Kapow Comic Convention in London on Sunday, he revealed that an existing character - who was previously assumed to be straight - will become ‘one of our most prominent gay characters’, according to comic blog BleedingCool.com.

Senior VP Sales Bob Wayne said DiDio’s view ‘had evolved’, comparing the shift to Barack Obama’s recent endorsement of same-sex marriage.

DiDio did not specify which character would ‘come out’ or in which issue it would be featured.

But Courtney Simmons, DC Entertainment’s senior vice president of publicity, told ABC News that it would be soon.

'One of the major iconic DC characters will reveal that he is gay in a storyline in June,' Simmons told the network.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...#ixzz1vbe0ReAM
That's fine and all, but what I don't get (aside from the sales/PR bump for the next few issues) is why do they need to go into the characters love lives? Or at least change it up some. It seldom amounts to anything anyway except for use as some boring page filler and they usually end up in the same fashion with the guy saving the day, but losing the girl because he was late for a date.

Of course I was also opposed to Damien Wayne/the idea of Robin in general and Daken so what do I apparently know?

Although as I was thinking about this I doubt this is really a "iconic" character that they are relaunching. If it was they would likely be out already and aside from Captain Marvel and maybe the Manhunter or one of the lesser Green Lanterns they have pretty much brought out all of the "iconic" names I believe.

Well, this will certainly add credence to my long-standing theory that Aquaman is totally gay.

*sigh*

Does anyone actually like or dislike character based on what demographic they belong to? Do white fans only like Batman because he's white? Are Americans less likely to read Wolverine because he's Canadian? It drives me up the fucking wall that DC and Marvel both seem to think that they can sell comics about characters whose sole defining characteristic is what community they're supposed to represent.

And if they're trying to appeal to new audiences, then how hard is it to create a new character? But then, why bother coming up with a character whose personality and life experiences accurately reflect that particular walk of life, when you could just take an existing character, retcon their history out of existence, and exploit their name value as a cheap publicity stunt?


Also, ten bucks says it's one of the Green Lanterns.

I can see them going with Captain Marvel just for the Marvel is gay line.

Characters need love lives so supervillains can kill their partners by throwing them off bridges, stuffing them in fridges and what have you.

Does seem like a bit of a cheap publicity stunt though.

Pretty much agree with Nowhere Man. Always felt that way about certain characters being created specifically for certain demographics.

Yeah, it's a cheap little publicity stunt, but every gay person in the world isn't suddenly going to start buying DC Comics just because one character is gay.

Not a huge fan of Year One or Frank Miller- but The Dark Knight Returns should make for a more entertaining animated movie than Year One. I found it a bit boring.
