From mute to blind: a major embarrassment

Almost forgot about this, but I wonder how Marv Wolfman feels about putting Joe Wilson through an editorial mandate and going along with it, in Vigilante #6.

I feel very sorry for Joey now. First, he's brought back to life for no good reason other than to service Geoff Johns's "continuity porn", and unlike the past days of the Titans, he can now talk, which takes away from what made him really unique. Then, he's turned into a crazy assassin. Now, supposedly to keep him from being a troublemaker, he's been blinded. Truly disgusting. He should have been allowed to rest in peace and not forced to go through the wringer. And if an editorial mandate as bad as this loomed over the production, it makes no difference if even Joey's own creator took the writing job here.

Wolfman says that this'll be built upon in the future, but with editors as bad as DiDio in charge, I don't think I'd want to know what they have in store.

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.
