Yeah, I saw that, which is weird since Futures End and Batman Eternal only have one artist per issue.

I’m guessing the scheduling wasn’t done as in-advance as the other two books and are trying to make sure the book gets out on time.

Seems to me like Earth-2 has a consistent track record getting the short end of the stick in terms of good editorial decisions and especially creative direction. They settle for decent to mediocre with Earth-2.

Anonymous said: What would you have thought if in the New 52 they had decided to reboot Helena as a lesbian?

I honestly don’t see it as a problem, and would actually work in her favour, not against it.

And to be fair, that’s still possible in the current continuity since Paul Levitz never made a point of explicitly acknowledging her sexuality. If a future writer decides that she works better as an LGBTQ character and outs her as such, chances are the change will be largely well-received.

I personally never complain about progressive changes that actually help the character grow and acquire a larger fanbase. It’s the the regressive changes I speak vehemently against since they hurt the character.

48. Do you sing in the shower?

No. I don’t do much singing to start with, especially if there’s no music playing. :P

49. Do you dance in the car?

Only if you count bopping your head to the beat of a rock song ‘dancing.’

90. Opinions on sex before marriage? 

Well. Considering I’ve already crossed that bridge and I don’t have a ring on my finger, I’d have to go with ‘marriage isn’t a requirement for a night of good sex with someone love.’

As long as you’re both consenting and you both want to share that experience, I say go for it. If you choose to wait until marriage that’s fine too. I’m a ‘whatever floats your boat’ kind of woman. 

92. Do you want to get married?

I’ll only get married if I find myself in a relationship with someone with whom I feel genuinely happy with, and if I realistically see myself spending the rest of my life with that person. Otherwise, I won’t lose sleep over it. 

When it comes to marriage, I’m of the opinion that if you’re not going to give it your all, don’t bother. I don’t believe in marrying out of convenience or because others expect you to be married by a certain age. I strongly believe that marriage is a partnership that both you and your partner agreed to equally invest in. Marriage can be all kinds of wonderful things, but it is also work. Once you get past the honeymoon stage, there have to be other things going for your relationship other than good sex.

I also don’t believe that it’s ever too late to get married. In my opinion, It’s better to wait for the right person to come along than to marry someone who turns out to be a terrible human being, and you find yourself trapped in a toxic marriage that you can’t easily get out of.

Just re-read some recent issues of Worlds’ Finest and regretting it. Levitz’ writing is absolutely awful.

Yeah. The execution just isn’t thoughtful enough and often reads like a first draft. If you compare this to his older stuff, it’s hard to believe this book is being written by the same guy who wrote all of those good JSA stories in the late 1970s.

I’m noticing the same thing. I wonder if his heart isn’t in it anymore. :(

It could be that part of the problem was that these two characters were slated to return to Earth-2 eventually, which limited what he could do with them. But still, a better writer would’ve at least used this time to explore who Kara and Helena are as characters, why they chose to become Huntress and Power Girl on Earth-1, and why these two women are friends. There was plenty of room for development there.

7. What happened tonight?

Tonight I sat on my arse and did absolutely nothing. It felt great!

17. Who do you feel most comfortable talking to about anything?

My feminist friends. :)

27. Would you be able to date someone who doesn’t make you laugh?

It depends on the individual. If they’re someone I love who treats me with respect, and makes me feel happy to have them in my life, that’s really all that matters to me. Whether someone can make me laugh isn’t as important to me as whether or not that person is my best friend, my confidante, someone I can share the most intimate aspects of myself with, and be my authentic self with. I’m not much of a smiler myself, so I wouldn’t really see it as an issue.

37. Do you believe in love at first sight?

No. But I do believe in falling in love with someone after you’ve gotten to know them for a considerable amount of time. That’s how it always happens with me anyway.

47. Who was he last person to call you?

My co-worker who wanted to me to pick up lunch for them.

57. Do you believe in ghosts?

I will the day I catch sight of Anne Boleyn roaming the corridors of the Tower of London. (And pretty much anyone else who was executed at the Tower of London for that matter. Which was a lot).

67. Peanuts or Sunflower seeds?

Peanuts!

77. Ever been in love?

I think a better question would be ‘have I ::never:: fallen in love?’

87. Ever won a contest?

No. Main,y because I never entered one to start with. :P

43. Ever embarrass yourself in front of a crush?

Surprisingly, no. I think I’m too ‘Batman’ in real life to make an arse of myself easily. By that I mean, I’m very self-contained in most situations.

More than anything, I’ve been told by guys that I intimidate them.

In the pre-Crisis DCU, this would’ve been a reality and epic good fun.
