Rooting for villains is ludicrous

The Nashua Telegraph writes up a bunch of brief "recommendations" of several items old and new, and what's said about the new Secret Six has me feeling bothered:
“Secret Six: Unhinged” (DC Comics, $14.99): “Secret Six” 1-7. Supervillains on road trip are funny, violent, evil, sexy, human. Writer Simone has us rooting for sociopaths. Brilliant!
Oh really? Never mind that the Secret Six as presented now doesn't even resemble the old take on the concept by E. Nelson Bridwell and Martin Pasko, I think there's some serious questions to be raised on if the audience should be rooting for a bunch of lethal sociopathic villains, or if said supercrooks should be depicted sexily, or even humanely.

But in the current DCU and editorial, this is what passes for entertainment.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
