A new Aqualad replaces Garth

DC Comics is introducing a protagonist who'll become the new Aqualad instead of Tempest, and as was the case with Blue Beetle, Firestorm, the Atom and the Question, they're still replacing older heroes with minority members following tasteless exits for their predecessors (Garth was last seen in Blackest Night, and did not fare well at all), which makes the baton-passing invalid. And are there that many people even asking for a new Aqualad for the sake of "diversity"?

That's probably not as bad though as the new story for Siren they have in store:
In the coming weeks in BRIGHTEST DAY, you’ll meet a new alien killer who will become J’onn J’onzz’s greatest enemy, a world where Hawkman and Hawkgirl will discover a great secret about their past, the mysterious and deadly Siren...
Oh, I'm sure Geoff Johns and company have done quite a job on the Siren, first seen in The Titans #5, that won't be worth seeing. And the new nemesis for Martian Manhunter we already know about, and it isn't worth the paper it's printed on either. Nor do I expect his current plans for the Hawks to be any good.

Labels: , ,

blaqualad adds nothing, is a gimmick, and will last 2 years tops.

We still didn't neet to lose Garth/Tempest in order for not only this to happen but to make Mera more interesting in both Blackest Night and Brightest Day.

Geoff Johns, you utter bastard!!

Woah, it's Lenny Kravitz, dude!

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.
