I Have GOT To Stay Off Tumblr For A Few Days  
Because I'll go up to New York and personally give them a piece of my mind. Instead of making me excited, everything I'm hearing is making me want to throw up.

Hey, DC, if you wanted the story-lines to remain relevant, maybe you should have kept up with your own continuity and stopped rebooting character origins and then made a HUGE mess of an "event" to try to shore up canon going back to THE GOLDEN AGE!

The whole damn thing just makes me loathe the comics even more. GOD, I so miss the 80s and 90s. It's no wonder that comics and I parted ways for the most part ten years ago. 

ETA: I think this comment from Diana herself sums up any thoughts of a Clark/Diana relationship. God bless you, DiscoWing@Tumblr. I laughed for the first time this morning because of this.

Wait - what's happening? *Is so out of the loop*

Lois: Clois :: Never More Perfectkalalanekent on June 1st, 2011 03:19 pm (UTC)
THIS.

And it's starting to sound like two of the things that may go are Lois and the Clois marriage. There's also whispers as a canon Superman/Wonder Woman relationship in the reboot.

Yeah. I got nothing. Except ... WHY?!?!?!

Lois: Lois :: Badasskalalanekent on June 1st, 2011 03:43 pm (UTC)
The usual. Money, their perpetually-screwed canon, and MUST HAVE NEW SHINIES!

Was that what it was last year? I'd almost rather all the comics end. Seriously.

I figured money - my why was more of a rhetorical why ...

Ugh. I feel sick... :/

I hope it doesn't. I really really hope it doesn't. They would lose me for good. I'm scared of this reboot myself. It's completely, utterly frightening to me. It will not be bought until I review it and that's a BIG step down for DC (On occasion I'm willing to buy outright for them... a couple of eps of "Grounded" were like that.)
Lois: Lois :: Badasskalalanekent on June 1st, 2011 05:16 pm (UTC)
They won't get another cent of my money. Period. No comics. No films. None of the new stuff. I'm off the merchandise train as soon as I get the Season 10 DVD for SV. I'm done. Me and my canon will be over here in the corner where none of the greedy bastards can touch it.

I keep waiting for some announcement of 'Haha, fooled you!' to come up, so I can wake up from this nightmare of a plan. *twitches*
Lois: Lois :: Horrorkalalanekent on June 1st, 2011 03:47 pm (UTC)
Me, too. It just goes to show how AWFUL they are with their own damn continuity. And it's the long-time readers that suffer from this stuff. Bastards.

I just wish that this was what would happen now. And I actually had a moment where I LIKED her in comics. God, I LOATHE you, DC.

I know I don't like the idea of it especially with all those rumblings about origin changes and the whatnot. *shudders at the potential future of DC.* I might buy the past but the future might well be out of bounds for me. For good.
Lois: Lois :: Smokingkalalanekent on June 1st, 2011 05:20 pm (UTC)
Oh, it's gone for me. Period. End of story. I'm over it. I'll be here in the movieverse if anyone needs me. I've been slowly losing my shit with them for years and the way they screw up perfectly good story lines and characters and can't keep up with their own canon. I'm done.

This is just so very, very wrong. And I had almost gotten to the point where I liked the character of WW.

Boys! Just because their costumes are matchy matchy, DOES NOT MEAN THEY SHOULD F*CK!

Ya know this was born when they thought "Oohhh, Wonder Womans going to have her own TV show, we should so up her profile! And Supes! I know! They can hook up, cause that's the only type of human interaction men and women are cappable of! And then all the people who watch WW will read the comics with Supes, cause he will be her boyfriend! Yeah!"

I mean have you seen her reboot costume? It looks suspiciously like the barely there bustier she was sporting in the bit's I've seen in the stills for the show. Only in silver instead of gold- cause a color change means it's tot's different, am I right?

Of course now they show has died, because FANS WERE SO PISSED AT THE CHANGES TO THE CHARACTER & CONTINUITY, and they still have these plans in play and a highly pissed off fan base and no new means to attract new ones with the show. Oh yeah, this is going to end well.

Did they learn nothing from Smallvlle? The lois/clark relationship freaking saved that show! But guess since it's no longer on the air fans won't notice and /or care. Because people who keep track of 80 years of continuity have the attention spans of goldfish, right?

*hops off soap box, walks away from DC until further notice* "Why hello there Marvel. Cap, you look lovely without you shirt on."

THIS. SO TOTALLY FUCKING THIS.

I wish I could stay calm long enough right now to write out how this makes me feel. I'M SO GD PISSED RIGHT NOW!

WORD TO ALL OF THIS. *applauds*

This is just so F'CKED UP, it is not even funny. I feel really sick about this.

I remember watching that Supes special when SR came out and writers were thinking even back then of 'waiting up' and and 'dissolving' the marriage.

That was five years ago, but apparently this is not an overnight decision.

It still makes me sick. WTF!! does this do to the reboot that they're shooting as we speak? Are they not going to get together? Are they even going to have interaction on the screen?

Man, I'm so worried about the movie and I know the fans are ranting just as we are... *feels sick*

I have an idea that might just make it a little better for the movieverse fans. ;) Keep your eyes open. :D
