Bleeding Cool got a hold of the FAQ that DC prepared and sent to retailers who couldn’t get to their road show. And let’s just get to the most interesting tidbit:
* Does The New 52 undo events or continuity that I’ve been reading?
Some yes, some no. But many of the great stories remain. For example – Batgirl. The Killing Joke still happened and she was Oracle. Now she will go through physical rehabilitation and become a more seasoned and nuanced character because she had these incredible and diverse experiences.
So she’s going to ‘become a more seasoned and nuanced character’ by going back to an identity that she held decades before, which is, in a lot of ways, a junior role and less influential and powerful in the superhero community than the one she holds now?
The one she has forged for herself, ignoring all obstacles in her way?
YEAH OK, THAT TOTALLY MAKES SENSE DC.
A woman without a disability is “more seasoned and nuanced” than one with a disability.
Fuck you, too, DC.
