So, the reboot is looking pretty bad for the Arrow kids. There's no indication we'll have Mia anytime soon, Connor apparently "ages Ollie up" too much- nevermind that Bruce totally had time for four Robins and a ten-year-old kid and that Connor was born well before Ollie became Green Arrow- and, of course, Lian, who should also have been born before her father's current identity change, also apparently ages Roy up too much. Suffice to say, current plans don't hold much hope for these three.

Of course, plans can be changed.

This may just be a pipe dream, but I’ve been considering trying to get some good fan action going to demand their return- tweeting Krul and co., writing letters to DC, starting a petition, etc.- but it’ll take a fair number of people and some level of coordination to really make ourselves heard.

Turns out, Scans_Daily has a fair number of people and a good platform for coordination.

So, what do you all say to some type of mass effort? If nothing else, just a designated day to spam DC's, Krul’s, and other relevant creator's twitters with #bringbackconnorhawke, #bringbackmiadearden, #bringbacklianharper, #bringbackthearrowkids or some similar message would catch a few eyes, but even that requires getting people together and semi-organized.

Any ideas? Anyone with petition experience would be especially great.

For legality, a few scans.

From GA V2 #106, Connor being adorable:

And three pages from GA V3 # 32:

On a night out with Roy, Connor and his brother are in a convenience store when a group of men try to rob it. After taking a few down, one of them gets behind Connor.

Some Mia from GA V3 # 3, saying what we've all been thinking:

And finally, some Lian from Superboy v3 #82 just being generally <3:

We can't just limit it to the Arrow family, but then again, too many causes all at once will saturate the contacts and decrease the effect.

We need a careful and clever strategist.

That is the stupidest thing I've heard. Glad that the reboot is happening, no more annoying Lian, useless Conner. Mia was alright though.

Dead serious.

Oh man Guardian and Red Arrow where distant relatives... too bad that never happen is that was the clone of the clone. Because when a clone is created, it has the conflict of identity and humanity, but a clone of a clone are just stains that must be wiped away and forgotten...

Eh, the only thing I can think to do is writing a sincere letter as to why certain characters should remain. Otherwise, what else is there? A petition? Twitter spamming? If anything can be done it has to be attention grabbing and not just a mere form of nerd rage as that is never taken seriously to be quite honest.

Connor was the first DC hero I ever got attached to. I'll be deeply disappointed if the Arrow kids are permanently out of continuity. Surely it's not that hard to deage them a few years?

...why is it that sometimes Connor is drawn white as the driven snow? They look like totally different people between the first and second scans. =/

And yes, retconning them all sucks, a lot. Bit late to change it now, but still no reason not to complain about i!

My only problem is Roy not trusting Connor enough to know what he's doing.

Yep, to both those trio clones and the Indigo robot. The only exception I can think of to this new rule is that Dubbilex that tried to kill Supergirl...

you know my biggest problem with the arrow relaunch? He's now apparently a techie hero, but his primary weapon is an archaic killing tool.

Seems kind of contrdictory to me.

That might well be the hook, when tech breaks down, a bow and arrow will continue to work, plus it's silent, has a decent range, and is still hard enough to use that it maintains non-powered bad guys as a credible threat. (And isn't Batman in the same boat, and his principle weapon is the far less versatile boomerang)

Of course, if they go back to "GA firing five arrows to block five handguns' firing pins before you can type a full stop", then I lose interest.

[personal profile] jlbarnett 2011-08-28 03:40 pm (UTC)(link)
not really for me. You make someone a tech hero then to me they need that technology to be an effective hero. Sort of like Iron Man, even if it's tool rather than armor. Batman's main weapon is his body, including his brain. Everything else is just used to increase efficiency

Look at athletes that use technology to increase their potential, though. When actually involved in an event they're not carrying or wearing any type of device, but they're all there during training. Besides I got the impression that making Queen DCNuU's Bill Gates was to differentiate him a bit from Bruce Wayne, while still going back to his roots as a Batclone. (I hope Babs manages to modify Queen stuff for her own use if they're going to try to interconnect the new U)

It falls under the category of 'be careful what you wish for' though. Even if all the Arrow kids were incorporated into the NuU, would they still be recognizably those characters? IMO, all characters dumped for the reboot will probably resurface in some fashion just as most of Marvel's Ultimateverse became populated with versions of the 616verse.

That is the stupidest thing I've heard.

Steady on.

Think what you like about the characters, but don't go insulting other people's posts. Failing to agree with you doesn't make daggerpen's opinion stupid. Just correct.

I'd asked [personal profile] mad and [personal profile] schmevil if they could ask about Mia at one of the FanExpo panels. DC's response to whether she'd be in the new DCU was "maybe." (They then said Steph is now Spoiler, Cass exists and Booster Gold is Canadian).

I'm hopeful about Mia. She's appeared in Smallville (...although as a brunette...); when Winick revealed her HIV positive status, it made mainstream media news, as well as she represents people who get very little representation; and with Artemis being in Young Justice, people who want to read about (another) blonde lady archer in DC can read about Mia. She's also pretty popular.

Lian, on the other hand, suddenly doesn't exist (WTF) and Connor, I don't know? I haven't heard anything official. I really hope they don't get rid of Connor, too, but I'm less hopeful about him than I am about Mia. :(

But I will tweet to DC_Nation and J.T. Krul about the Arrowfam :)

Oh and there was also another scene from when Connor and Roy are hanging out. I remember Connor not refuting ideas that he's gay. Does anyone recall that page?

Booster Gold is Canadian
Does that mean he's no longer going to be future boy or that he wasn't a Gothamite?
Because if they remove the future from his history then I'll be pissed off

[personal profile] whitesycamore 2011-08-28 06:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Booster Gold is now Canadian!

This changes everything. XD

[personal profile] whitesycamore 2011-08-28 08:25 pm (UTC)(link)
I completely support any campaign to bring back the arrow kids. Particularly Mia - she was so underused even before the reboot. :(

Also, icon love. (What was Connor's head trauma though? I'm not all that familiar with him, although I like what I've seen).

I think it just means that he's Canadian....

why is it that sometimes Connor is drawn white as the driven snow

Because at DC, mixed-race people are like unicorns - rumored to exist, but since they apparently haven't seen any, they just use their imagination. :/

Umm... so now Booster doesn't litter and has access to free health care? Eats at Tim Horton's? Is bilingual? Says "about" funny? Doesn't know about subspace highways in your head?

I loved Connor's run as GA! Heck, I've been re-reading his team up issues with Kyle Rayner not long ago! (but for GA's side of the events I have to add)

What...for real?! Why the change? Is there any real reason behind such move or is it just part of Didio&Lee's masterplan to fully feature a more varied cast of characters (in such silly ways)

Fun fact? He was originally intended to be gay, though, until DC chickened out.

Was he? I didn't know that! I thought he was a Chuck Dixon creation -- which kind of tells me that's why he wasn't revealed to be gay. :(
