xx Earth 4
« Thread started on: May 5th, 2008, 08:32am »

It's well established that Earth 4 is Charlton characters (http://www.dccomics.com/news/?nw=8943), and it's about time for some of those heroes to come back... please...

I get some hell for not liking Montoya and I think it's because I didn't read her in Gotham Central... What that said, she is no Vic Sage, and the objectivist crazy Vic Sage needs to return. (I had to say it)

I don't think anyone is liking the new Blue Beetle either...

Although Final Crisis is supposed to feature more of Renee Montoya, which I think is justified because we need to see what she can do, I'd be happy with two Questions or Renee going back to the Gotham Police considering most of the policemen in that comic wound up dead,retarded villian, or drunken lesbian.

Bring some Earth 4 to Earth 1!

FFS... Give me a independent comic book of Earth 4 Question. Updated writer and artwork please.

Ted Kord's solo series lasted 24. Jaime's is on issue 28. I'm not saying he's better...
I don't mind Ted's death. It served a purpose. At least they didn't bring in someone that's more or less a character clone. He's his own guy figuring things out as he goes.

As for the rest of your points, yeah. I loved me some Vic. I also love that he died of (somewhat) natural causes. That's *rare* in superhero comics.
The thing about Gotham Central is that it was really down to earth. It dealt with human characters in a world where anything could happen. To me, that's dead now. One lead character is dead and is the vengeance of god, the other is wearing a mask.
So much for down to Earth.

To sum it all up, character deaths are cool to me. Just keep them dead and move on.

I don't know too much on Blue Beetle to really complain on that, but as far as Vic being dead and moving on... I just can't.

Natural Causes are rare in comic books, but it still doesn't justify that he had to go. I guess i'll just have to disagree with that death in general. To me it seems like they had these fodder police characters, and they didn't want them trashed so what do they do?.. They make them something more and out of the ordinary, which in turn, is blatantly retarded. In logical terms it plays out like this:

"Hey we have the three police characters that people seem to like, but I don't want them to leave the DCU.."
"You're absolutely correct what should we do?"
"Oh lets have Vic die of natural causes because that'll make sense to make room for drunk ass Montoya and lets have the Spectre take Allens body because the Spectre never has to make sense (lets face it... the Spectre is the most random ass DC character... explain the Hal Jordan Spectre to me sometime... it's almost mind blowing isn't it.?).."
"Sure... NO ONE will miss Vic"
"Well Atleast _____ (whoever responsible) and Joe Quesada (because hes a screw up too) can sleep well tonight!" --- bunch of morons...

I understand completely - when the rumors were flying around that Grayson was going to die in IC, I was hating it. No matter the cause / case, I would have blown up. A good death would have made it better, but it would have taken some time for me to get past it.

Yeah i've dabbled in tons of comics this year and read about tons of characters and The Question has just grown on me. His philosophy is what gets me.

Nightwing is my number 2 though. lol thanks for those issues btw. 125 was awesome.
