Her name is Lois Lane. She is an army brat made good. Not even thirty and she’s already won her first Pulitzer. […] She’s comfortable interviewing the president in the White House… as she is filing from behind the enemy lines in Quraq. Let’s just say there is only one Lois Lane and leave it at that. As her best friend, he has seen her at her best and her worst. As Superman, he’s caught her in his arms while she suffered from hypothermia at 40,000 feet. As Clark Kent, he escorted her to the last royal wedding where she committed the international faux pas of looking better than the bride. No matter how many times he lays eyes on her… he’s always taken aback at the realization that Lois Lane is the most amazing woman he has ever met.

Fans: Hey, uh, DC. We know that you’re in charge and everything and we were thinking that maybe since we’ve been buying the comics that we wish were better even though we don’t actually like what’s going on that maybe you’d bring back the Tim we know and love, at least a little, and —-
DC: *slaps the fuck out of the DC fandom*
Fans: woah hey what the hell
DC: Shut the fuck up. We’re going to let Scott Lobdell shit all over Tim Drake and your memory of him from the preboot. Because, you know what? Fuck you guys. And another thing. We’re going to confuse the hell out of you with a new uniform for Red Robin.
DC: The wings weren’t confusing enough and too many of you got too used to it. So we figure we’re going to make Tim Drake as sexy as possible while also making him look like a tool.
Fans: why would you —-
DC: Ohhh man we’re so not done mangling this character. And we’ve just started with Jason Todd! We’re having so much fun! WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE WHAT WE HAVE PLANNED FOR DICK GRAYSON
Scott Lobdell: *rolls around in cash moneys, somehow, the hack*
Brett Booth: *does his best to make Tim look okay*
Fans: *sob in a corner, whispering stories about Harper Row and the days when a Robin was a Robin*
Tim got a new costume? Already? What?
Why does he look like Cyclops?
I hate Cyclops.
And Tim would never let his belt dangle around like that. That would be inefficient, right?
I mean… I don’t hate it, but. What’s with the Cyclops thing? D:
EDIT: DESIGN WAS REJECTED FOR THE WINGS.
“If so many people hate the DC reboot why do they keep buying the books? I’ve seen so many complain that “DC sux” but they keep buying them month after month. Why do you need to rant to other fans with 2000+ words posts?”
“People complaining about the reboot piss me off. DC’s continuity was more fucked up than Marvel’s and too many retcons happened. Now, it’s more clear and concise. Not only that, but characters who were once boring or shunned to the side now have their own books or something to do again.”
“I find it hilarious when some DC fans get mad at an artist and/or writer during conventions just because said person may show a little annoyance or will not answer the way they want. Those same fans then go off and rant about the rudeness of said talent while conveniently forgetting that they are doing more trash talking (in some cases even before the incident).”
“I’ve reading comics for over twenty years and I got to say I’m embarrassed by the behavior of some of the younger fans. I miss the days when it was okay to disagree and people were calmer. Sure things weren’t perfect but it was for the love of the comics that kept us going. Unfortunately now there is a lot of self-entitlement, name-calling and elitism among this new batch. That kind of behavior is hurting the comic book fan name much worse than the ‘little nerd/geek’ stereotype ever did.”
“If you don’t like the new DC comics then stop reading/buying them. You don’t look intelligent when you spend days ranting about how horrible a comic is, it actually makes you look stupid for spending on something you hate.”
“Almost a year later and people just won’t stop bad mouthing DC and the relaunch. It’s pretty damn pathetic when you think about it.”
“People are always complaining about the New 52… I don’t get it! There’s no reason to hate. Sure, Wally doesn’t exist, Lois and Clark aren’t together, Stephanie and Cassandra are unused… But they’re also only on the 10th issue of each comic. It’s already been said that they’re doing something with Wally. Lois and Clark have plenty of time to hook up. There’s already two alternate universes, so there may be even more for like other Robins to exist. Quit your bitching!”
“I know it sucks to see some of our favorite characters disappear but c’mon guys constantly badmouthing Gail Simone, Rob Liefeld, Scott Lobdell, etc. is not cool. At the end of the day they’re just doing their job just like everybody else.”
