Aquaman isn't the only marginalized DC hero

In this posting on IO9 about Aquaman, they say:
In celebration of Mermaid Day, we're paying tribute to Aquaman, the most marginalized superhero in history. Despite possessing fantastic ichthyosapien powers, Aquaman just doesn't get the love he deserves.
But neither do Elongated Man and the Silver Age Atom; they - and their spouses - are equally marginalized and still done zero favors by the company in charge. In fact, even Metamorpho and Black Lightning are pretty marginalized to boot. I don't suppose they'd be willing to consider them as well as the king of Atlantis?

Labels: , ,

Considering how the core of Black Lightning has been destroyed the past few years by Winnick and others, we could only wish him to be marginalized until Tony Isabella can write him again.

The 1990s series is one of those that was so good it hurts to recall how badly the editor screwed it up.

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.
