Mary, Queen of Blood, ladies and gentlemen.
Batman has ice cream. Your argument is invalid. Now the question: is it pistachio or mint choco chip?
Dead DC Comics,
We mourned the deaths of Superman, Blue Beetle and the Martian Manhunter.
We celebrated the return of Bruce Wayne, Hal Jordan and Barry Allen.
We felt felt the bonds of family and friendship through over 20 years of Teen Titans. (We even memorized the theme song and changed our message tones to the Titans communicator’s tone)
We cheered Barbra Gordon on as she fought her loss and became Oracle.
We recited our oaths through Blackest Night and Brightest Day.
We stood by the Justice League through each of it’s incarnations.
Our hearts went out to Gotham, Coast City and Metropolis in their times of need.
We laughed with Stephanie Brown.
We went to hell and back with the Secret Six.
We didn’t lose hope through each Crisis.
And now you’re throwing all of that history away. It’s like living a wonderful life for many, many years only to wake up one day to be told that ‘Hey. The life you lived? It was all a lie. Surprise!’
Please don’t relaunch the DCU. Please don’t tell us that you’re getting rid of some of our dearest friends and replacing them with shiny, new impostors. Please don’t destroy my childhood. Hollywood has done that enough.
If you care about the current DCU, please reblog this.
