Diane Nelson was responsible for rebooting DC's continuity

She was certainly one of the people accountable. The New 52 relaunch of DC has overall been bad. But who besides DiDio, Johns and Lee is responsible for rebooting the continuity and doing little else beyond that to make it engaging? Warner executive Diane Nelson, who was recently profiled by the Hollywood Reporter for their list of 100 most powerful women in showbusiness:
...if you are a producer and you want to develop one of DC’s characters, you have to go through Nelson, 45. She also oversaw the relaunch of the entire line of DC Comics and created a plan for same-day digital comics on all platforms and partnering with Warner Bros. to develop new projects.
For someone who oversaw the relaunch, she sure didn't do much to ensure that it'd be something a wider audience could get into. Not all the line was actually rebooted, of course, as seen with Batman and Green Lantern (and as far as I know, the 1992 story where Doomsday momentarily slew Superman is still intact, but without Lois Lane present), but whether the prior continuity was jettisoned, direction has still been as disastrous as before. She has not been a success and is not worthy of being in charge of the DC stables.

Labels: ,

DC really seems to have it out for Lois Lane these days. And pretty much all of their leading, non-superpowered ladies.

  • 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.
