"On diversity in the DCn√ú: Wallace stated that it was very important to him to reflect the real world in his book, Mister Terrific, and that his run will feature a sporting cast with black, hispanic, asian and, he joked, "even white" characters because "I had to stick them in there." Going back to a serious note, he stated that he wants the world of Mister Terrific to reflect the real world. Jim Lee added that there was a "very small" asian character in the Justice League whose name rhymes with "blatom," all but saying that the Atom in the new DC Universe is Ryan Choi rather than Ray Palmer."

Yay! The return of Ryan I approve of.

"On female characters in the Justice League line: A female fan in a Batgirl costume, with daughter dressed as Spoiler, was very upset by what she said was a lack of female characters being featured centrally on the covers in the Justice League line of books. The panelists said they are trying very hard to take diversity seriously in terms of both gender and race. The fan said no such characters were featured prominently on the covers, leading to a somewhat heated and awkward back-and-forth ending with her promising to go count them. The mood of the room was definitely against her, with Lee joking and asking if she wanted the female characters to be "dead center or off-center" on covers."

*grimace*

"On Green Arrow: Krul stated that Oliver Queen will have a new company called QCore that supplies him with technology to facilitate his superhero activities. Krul said that GA will be a fun action-adventure book with a James Bond feel, with artist Jurgens adding that it has a lot of wide-open visuals and action featuring a younger Ollie."

So he's Christian Bale's Batman now? Okay then.

"On Cassandra Cain: Morrison confirmed she exists in the new DCU."

*sets phasers to "cautiously optimistic"*

On Batwing: Winick largely reiterated his statements about the book from the Batman panel two days ago, stressing that he's trying to intertwine superhero action and real-world issues in the Democratic Republic of Congo. He also called Africa "a very politicized and ravaged country."

This... does not bode well.

"On Animal Man: Jeff Lemire stated that the book's main character is actually Buddy Baker's daughter Maxine, who's developing new powers. The book will also chronicle the Baker family traveling across America. He described it as a horror book, not a superhero book."

And another part of Casstoons continuity has become canon. Weird.

"On Demon Knights: Cornell described the basic concept of the series: seven strangers in a small medieval town, including Etrigan the Demon, being forced to defend it from a horde when they just want to get a drink, comparing it to The Magnificent Seven. He stated that many of the characters were there in Camelot and, after its fall, are attempting to keep its noble spirit alive. He also once again described the Horsewoman, a "diversity character, to state it crudely" who he compared to the Man With No Name."

Lookin' forward to this series. Heh.

"On Stormwatch: Stormwatch attempt to keep themselves hidden from both the people of the world and the superheroes who they regard as brightly-colored amateurs. They see themselves as a "higher authority," and the villain in the first arc is the moon, which has come alive. Cornell also commented on Apollo and Midnighter, who are both gay but meet for the first time in the first issue. Cornell wants to write a slow-build romance between the two. He also joked about his presence on the Gays in Comics panel later in the evening, saying that if he decided to "go in another direction" with Apollo and Midnighter, he wouldn't expect to leave that panel alive."

...Also semi-looking forward to this one. Though I am mildly confused as they seem to have both Jenny Quantum (canon in the DCU, another bizarre Casstoons prediction) as well as this woman called Jenny Blitz, who I think is meant to be the representation of Flashpoint's Earth or something.

Ah, Judd Winick and his magical ability to champion a worthy cause that he will then repeatedly injure through his own ham-fisted actions.

It's a pity because we could really use a Black African superhero who wasn't coming from some fantasy land like Wakanda but unfortunately Winick's not the guy to write that story.

I promise, I will find something positive to say about every post I put the CornetteFace on, from here on out.

This post's positive: Damn, I wouldn't have guessed that was Liefeld. I know I've been saying he certainly seemed to have improved on his recent Marvel books (look at early issues of Deadpool Corps, for example), but... people have feet! And discernible joints! And anatomy that's close enough to human to qualify as merely stylized! I mean, yes, Dove's still impossibly wasp-waisted, but her spine isn't curved beyond recognition, and her skinniness is no more implausible than the thickness of Hawk's limbs--both just a *little* beyond the limits of real human anatomy. Holy shit, did he go to art college in the last couple years or something?

And now. With that out of the way, the rest of this post, showing just how much faith I have in anything promising said at SDCC:

I was pretty uncomfortable with what he did with Mia. Her backstory was already very dark and traumatic when Kevin Smith created her,she was sexually abused by her father and ran away only to become an underaged escort. To take her from that to having been abused by an entire pedophile ring and making her a street-walker seemed like he was saying that it wasn't bad enough before. He could have given her the drug problem and the HIV condition without having changed any of that.

I see what you mean. But that didn't really bother me too much. I agree it might have been... a little more than needed. but unlike other writers who merely use it in either an exploitive way or to make people feel sorry for her, he used it to have her say. Hey that was the past, I am living with consequences of that past, but it does not define me. I am LIVING with HIV.

as a gay man i find that as a very positive message (yes I know you said it could still be worked in without the prostitution thing and I agree. I just don;t think writing it in detracts from the positive things he has done)

He also added her commenting how she's take drugs when she was homless to avoid being raped when she as asleep.

yes this, and its what some youth do. (i think even Roy said he had taken drugs because of that too. commenting that what happened to Mia could have easily happened to him)

So, if I got this right, the woman was complaining that none of the Justice League covers released so far featured any of the women of the book.

The thing that bothers me about that is this...there's been two covers released so far, one of which is meant to show the entire new "big seven" of the DCnU, and the other is to show a plot point in the story, with the DCnU's first Superman/Batman fight.

I mean, when it comes to female creators, I totally agree there should be more, but when you consider that there's at least eight on-going female solo books, and if you are to count team books where there's women on the team or major supporting characters, you got around 26 at least.

DC has problems with their creators--but in terms of their characters, the DCnU seems to be doing pretty well so far in making a more diverse universe in terms of race, gender, and sexual orientation.

Someone needs to find out who this woman was so we can congradulate her for standing up for her beliefs and console her that not all comic fans are against her. All she has to do is make a facebook post and we could have a movement.

Stay classy DC, humiliating your fans in public infront of their children, great way to go.

This!

DC... diversity?
HAHAHAAHAH oh you were serious.

:( That makes me sad.

DC has a history of handling any diversity in a completly hamfisted, bassackwards way. And a tendency to -kill- minority characters. Hell, look at what happened with Steph.

To be positive (since I used the Cornett Face meme) I am looking foreward to Demon Knights the magnificent 7 style comic.

So long as there is plenty of Etrigan snark.

I'm surprised there wasn't more coverage of this panel (and the one of the next day) on scansdaily already.

The Batgirl woman is [personal profile] kyrax2, and the rundown of her days at SDCC can be see there. The audio for this panel is also available. She was booed for her question by the audience and disrespected by the panelists.

There's a bit more about this at http://dcwomenkickingass.tumblr.com/post/7985599811/panels, too.
