"When I first began writing Green Arrow, I kept Oliver out of costume as often as I could in order to emphasize the man.

He is a 25-year-old man. He doesn't quite know who he is. He's troubled. He's not sure of himself romantically. He's not sure of himself heroically. I wanted, gradually, as he struggles over this last arc especially with his sense of self, this war arc with his sense of self. I wanted Green Arrow to slowly take over Oliver Queen. It isn't until Rebirth that he finally truly lives up to the title. To me, this is an incredibly exciting moment. One where the dam breaks.

It's hard to do a big and complete post on Green Lanterns currently, since it's a dense surprisingly and has a lot of story and characterization going on it. So instead, I'll just do a post on my favorite scene of the second issue.

"It's one thing to stand up for the right thing, and it's another thing to teach your kid to stand up for the right thing. It's harder. They see through, they know the truth, they're there all the time. They ask hard questions. And it makes you examine your own self. I know as a father, I think about that all the time, about what our kids will think of us, and how we always have this little person watching.

For Superman, you would think that would come easily or naturally, but part of what we're exploring is that although he's not technically human, he actually is human like us. Being a dad isn't a superpower. He's a dad just like everybody else. He's trying to figure this out, just like anybody else.

Whether you've had a dad or been a father, you can probably understand or relate.

"Black Manta is this wonderful mirror, dark mirror of Aquaman. And his sole purpose is to destroy Aquaman.

And I want to make Manta not just one of his great villains. Manta previously was a guy who cropped up for six or seven issues every now and then as one of his arch foes. But this is much more.

Aquaman is the key character in the comic book, but Mera and Black Manta are the other absolute co-stars. If it was a TV show, their faces would be in the credits too, because this is so much about those characters.

"I feel like the Speed Force is one of the many constants within the DC Universe and I think that grounds Flash to these big events. And because Barry has the ability to be in so many places at once, it's easy to tie him to everything. He has an ability to travel through time and different alternate realities but he also has so much heart, which gives him a really great perspective on a lot of things.

And my opinion is, and I know not everyone agrees with me, that [Barry] enjoys being a superhero more than anybody in the DCU. He genuinely enjoys it. And that level of enjoyment puts him right in the middle of everything.

"For the longest time, DC has put Diana on the pedestal, but because of the audience interest she hasn't really been supported. She hasn't been portrayed in a way that fought that status. But certainly in the last couple of years and this year in particular because of the film, because of Grant Morrison's "Earth One" and because of Renae De Liz's "Legend of Wonder Woman," it feels like the audience is really waking up to the fact that this character is really important. And they're showing up. I feel like that's really fantastic and that we're really lucky because we get to do something of significance with this character at a significant time." - Nicola Scott

Their magnitude makes that an impossibility, unless you're as much as they are.

They have to be solved in a way that works around, instead of against, what they pose to whatever meets them.

The Flash found himself so stymied recently.

" This is how your story ends, Flash. "

Who said that couldn't ever cause it with only his hands. )

"Aquaman is one of the sort of big six of DC. He's not a Batman or Superman, but he's absolutely one of the first division heroes. And I've always liked him for that reason. And I like him for the same reason, I think, that I like a lot of cosmic characters, because he's not just a guy who puts on a costume — he's a guy from another world. He's a guy from Atlantis.

He's not wearing a superhero costume. He's wearing royal chain mail.

And he's not just a hero who saves people and does good deeds. He's got this responsibility. He rules Atlantis. He rules a whole nation. He controls the sea, which is two-thirds of the planet. He's the most global hero

While Marvel is boasting about their All-New Marvel Now Redux Ultimate Edition this Fall, DC on the other hand decides to announce another comic...

Matt Santori-Griffith: One of my biggest questions relates to the quality of humor in the book. The television series was very much a comedy relying on visual gags, puns, and jokes, but this book feels like a much more melancholy satire. Can you talk a little about the humor and how you’re approaching the title?

Mark Russell: Yeah, I do want it first to be funny and an entertaining read. But I do think there’s a lot of darkness when you’re talking about civilization forming at the start of the human race. There’s a lot of Faustian bargains we had to make to come up with cities and appliances and workplaces. So, I wanted The Flintstones to include the more troubling elements that go into creating a civilization, while still making it funny and engaging.

"You see this with a lot of Batman's villains -- he wants them to recover, he wants them to find the positive path, because the worst thing in the world happened to Batman when he was eight years old. That's what sets him on the path to become Batman. He knows that a dark moment can send you spiraling in different directions, but he has to believe that you can pull yourself towards the light. Having a character on this team that as fun to write as Clayface, and as fun to play with because of his abilities, is great. I also love that he used to beat up Batman all of the time. There are some good lines coming up in the next few issues. Honestly, putting Clayface on the team is what glued the book together. It's that one extra thing that shows that while Batman is not the friendliest guy in the world, he is an optimist who wants the best things for the people around him -- even his villains. When he sees the chance for redemption, he pushes for it." - James Tynion IV
