So remember that guy who kissed Black Canary in issue #1? We finally learn more about him and the Cleaners in general!

This issue actually reminded me of Joss Whedon's Dollhouse series where a specific phrase is utilised to activate a person into "kick ass assassin" mode.

A lot of people dislike Starling, actually. They say she's some kind of perfect, Mary Sue; who never makes any mistakes, always has an wise comment, and looks like she stepped out of a suicide girl photo-shoot.

I just think this makes her awesome, but I suppose I can see where they're coming from at least.

Granted, Ev's got one of those, too (without the self-loathing, though she was quite severe with herself when she noticed she was caught in a trap), but she seems to have adjusted quite well.

I think that any time you replace an older character with a new one in an ongoing series, you're going to have a backlash from fans of the old one that will find any excuse to hate on the new one. (If she'd made rookie mistakes, then she must be a fuck-up and they should just bring Character X back, right?) There are a lot of things that I still don't like about the New 52, but trying out new characters isn't one of them.
