Bleeding Cool just posted the latest rumor and it ties into what I’ve been saying. And I’m going to put it under a cut. Because it will piss off a lot of people and thrill a lot of people. It’s about Superman. It’s about relationships. And remember it’s a rumor. But it’s a big one. And it could be a huge spoiler so click at your own risk.
This can only end in tears. Tears and nerdy outrage.
It’s gonna end up in 9 levels of confusion. I just want this to be a multiverse and not mess with the main ‘verse cause srsly we do NOT need this. younger ≠ cooler. DESMOND IS PRETTY YOUNG AND HE’S SORT OF A LOSER WHEREAS EZIO IS LIKE 40 SOME AND HE’S TOTALLY A BADASS. also younger Dick Grayson had a crappy get up. LOL YOUNG NIGHTWING DOES THIS MEAN WE’RE GOING TO ERASE DISCOWING FROM EXISTENCE?
If the main players are having their timelines rewound, I’m more worried about what this means for characters like Batwoman who have only existed for a few years. Or characters who have been there longer but not long enough for the rewind, ie Cass.
it’s gonna ruin a lot of the continuity if they do that. if Bats gets a younger age, will all the Robins get a younger age too? if Aquaman gets younger, will we keep the new Aqualad? etc. etc. and I mean… the ladies of Birds of Prey can’t get too much younger like we’re gonna wind up with baby assassins everywhere
reversing the ages of your main JLA characters isn’t going to entirely help? I mean can’t we just keep them at their ages and just have the restarts like you did with Brightest Day? tbh if they were more like origin stories or kind of looking into the pasts of the characters sure I could deal but… just straight up making them all younger? idk man. I like me some foxy older ass kicking dudes and ladies (see: Ezio, Auron, can’t think of any older ladies cause that’s not the norm in comics I think) but idk man idk.
"We looked at what was going on in the marketplace and felt we really want to inject new life in our characters and line," says Dan DiDio, who co-publishes DC with Lee. "This was a chance to start, not at the beginning, but at a point where our characters are younger and the stories are being told for today's audience."
Can we just make this a multiverse and call it a day? I mean yeah cool I’d love to get a from scratch story cause I don’t know everything but… idk
But I guess if they can make Aquaman really super badass like Namor but… maybe not quite so hardcore I’d be kind of okay with it.
Let me tell you something about Petyr Baelish. We were best friends in middle school. I know, right? It's so embarrassing. I don't even... Whatever. So then in eighth grade, I started going out with my first boyfriend Brandon who was totally gorgeous but then he got killed in Robert's Rebellion, and Petyr was like, weirdly jealous of him. Like, if I would blow him off to hang out with Brandon, he'd be like, "Why didn't you call me back?" And I'd be like, "Why are you so obsessed with me?" So then, for my wedding, which was a hunky Stark wedding, I was like, "Petyr, I can't invite you, because I think you're in love with me." I mean I couldn't have someone who was in love with me at my party. There was gonna be Brandon there marrying me. I mean, right? He was IN LOVE WITH ME. So then he called Brandon and started dueling him, it was so retarded. And then he left Riverrun because no one would talk to him, and he came to King's Landing in the fall for high school, all of his hair was cut off and he was totally weird, and now I guess he owns a brothel.
