If the Arrow series depicts Jean Loring even remotely like in Identity Crisis, that'll be abominable

ComicBook.Com said 2 months ago that the Arrow TV series based on Green Arrow gave some hints that it would feature Ray Palmer and Jean Loring. What really disgusted me here was the writer's signal he's fine with the Identity Crisis miniseries, making this yet another website that's gone the offensive route with lenience on perverted misogyny:
Jean Loring hasn’t yet been seen in the New 52; the last time anybody saw her before Flashpoint, she was a villain–and had been since the best-selling Identity Crisis storyline in which she murdered the wife of one of the other superheroes. Could Jean’s obsessive tendencies and willingness to commit violence to get what she want play a role in a prospective future the character could have on Arrow? Certainly it fits fairly well into the show’s universe.
I know that if the TV series condones the kind of vision the Occupy movement has, that's bad enough already. But just as reprehensible here was the site writer's apparent embrace of the abominable miniseries' vision, and/or his perception of what Jean was ever like. So he really believes that Jean was a total psycho? It's like 9-11 trutherism, and an insult to Gardner Fox and Gil Kane. At the same time, this gives me a feeling I'm glad I haven't viewed the series yet; it sounded like the writers were more concerned about throwing in nods to all sorts of other DC heroes and villains anyway, that had little to do with character drama. And if depicting any cast members as lunatics is what it's about, that doesn't sound very appetizing either.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • 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.
