"He's not a quipper. He doesn't make silly jokes. And if he does, it's because he wants to distract you. Every word and action Batman does have a goal to it. In that sense, Batman is an easy character to dialogue. But I think that can be a trap too. You can get it stuck too dark and dank. You have to be aware of your subject and be aware that Batman is smart enough to realize that although he is driven all of the time, being driven all of the time is not productive." - Tom King

"I was a fat kid. I was a nerd. I read comics when comics were definitely not cool so I got bullied like nothing else. I remember when I was a kid in movies, bullies were the bad guys but at my school, the bullies were the cool kids and everybody was rooting for them. And they were rooting against me. And that's why I gravitated toward Batman. He was the guy that if the bullies hit you, he'd hit them back. He was the guy on the other side of that fist." - Tom King

Scott Snyder: I’ve given [Tom King] a lot of advice – probably too much – but one thing I do remember saying early on is, remember that part of the fun of Batman is that he always wins.

Tom King: I think what he just said is the most important advice, cause I’m kind of a dirge-y writer. I write books like Vision and Omega Men and they’re definitely written in a minor key, of like, what a tragedy life is. So I have to remind myself that, when I was a kid, I read comics for the heroes. And I think the most noble thing comics do is, they give someone who’s had a tough day five minutes away from that tough day. And they give someone an adrenaline rush and show them that, in the end, the good guys win.

Let's face it, we all knew a crossover was coming eventually in Rebirth. Now, DC did say there would be breaks to allow the bi-weekly series to stay on schedule. This sounds like this crossover over will be that.

So we are here, with the last issue of the Superheavy and the penultimate issue fo Snyder's Batman run. The last issue showed us the return of Bruce Wayne and made it clear that it was a tragic event. This issue shows us the clash between Gordon, Duke, Batman and Bloom.

What to show from this issue? )

He pulls out the comic book, and there's this blonde, Anglo-Saxon gym teacher from the Midwest. I said, "Okay, see, it's sort of my point, Julie."

"What's wrong with this?"

"A blonde Anglo-Saxon white guy from the Midwest. Julie, do you ever watch the Olympics? How often have you seen three white guys, you know, gold, silver, bronze, [standing] together? Usually there's a white guy, a black guy and an Asian guy, or two black guys and a white guy. Three white guys, you don't really see it. Maybe in archery. I'm thinking archery we'd see three white guys."

He says, "What your point?"

I said, "I'm just saying if the ring goes out it's just as likely to find an Asian guy and a black guy, and it is not likely that it's going to find another white Anglo-Saxon protestant guy. That doesn't make any sense."

"You want to draw a black Green Lantern don't you?"

"Well, yeah, that's what I was thinking."

He said, "Will you draw it?"

I said, "Yeah, I'll draw it. No problem."

He said, "Fine, I'll get Denny [O'Neil] to write a script."

"Make him civilized, Julie, you know, not a gangster or anything."

"We'll make him an architect."

"Fine, make him an architect. Out of work. Things aren't so good for out of work black architects."

"Okay, fine, get out of here. Get out of my office. I want it dark in my office again."

So then [Denny] does this script, and I read the first page. Sure enough, he's a black out of work architect, and he's defending a couple of guys on the street from nasty cops. And I read the name of the guy, and the guy's name is Lincoln Washington. Oh, Jesus. So I go to Denny O'Neil, and I go, "Denny, look, I know the answer to this question, but I just have to ask you, Lincoln Washington?"

He says, "Not my name. I didn't do it."

I said, "Who did it?"

He says, "Julie."

"Okay, fine." I go to Julie's room and I close the door.

"What is it? Get out of my office."

"Julie, Lincoln Washington?"

"What's wrong with that name? I know lots of guys with names like that."

- Neal Adams, reminiscing on the creation of John Stewart

In light of the well intentioned but horribly botched history of American magic over in the Potterverse (and the fact that I've been listening to a lot of Hamillton), I thought that I'd post instances of the Founding Fathers messing about with magic in the DCU and Marvel Universes...
