Gail Simone on Firestorm? We had a heated argument about Wonder Woman's sister Nubia on CBR, if you ask me she doesn't understand Black people at all.
I'm curious to know more about that exchange. I like Simone's work with Secret Six, but it noticeably doesn't have any black characters. Though Amanda Waller has shown up in the book a couple times since I've been reading it. (At least with crossovers with Suicide Squad).
Even though I understand many folks' concern with DC comics I have to admit I have been drawn to them as of late. Over the past couple years I've enjoyed a lot of Morrison's Batman books, some of Tony Daniels, generally Paul Dini. I also have checked out the Batfamily books and Supergirl. Secret Six has been all right, and THUNDER Agents has been far more readable than Nick Spencer's Iron Man 2.0. The War of the Green Lanterns hasn't been bad either. And Flashpoint #1 at least was good.
DC has a long way to go regarding diversity (but so does Marvel) and I don't like the way they are treating the Milestone characters. With this reboot, I guess Xombi is going to get canceled. Static got canceled before it even started again right? And they recently canceled Azrael. So here's hoping Mr. Terrific book does well (I've never been into him, but I'll give this book a chance).
