Ugh. So they haven't even slightly reconsidered the Max-as-villain concept.

At least Waller is back to her normal, ah, proportions?

Sort of back. At least a move in the right direction.

Max might have come first.

Purple Man dubuted in 1964, Max Lord debuted in 1987.

Is comics Amanda Waller really so nice that she'd let Lord go just because he has hostages? I don't know any other Waller who would do that.

DCAU Waller is just as nice i think, maybe nicer actually.

Somehow it's fitting that Amanda is the only one (so far) who has broken Max's hold. A lot of times I disagree with her, but there are times when I just love her pure bad-assery. Even Batman hesitates to cross the Wall! :)

If there is no Bwah-hah-ha! it is not Max Lord.

I'm not saying this is badly done. But if a character like Max is now stuck in the villain mode, what next? Evil Jarvis? Villainous Perry White?

By gods, Bucky might come back. Or Jason Todd!

They had a solid reason to be bad, though. Bucky was brainwashed, and Jason's head had been fucked with by the Joker.

Max's fall into villainy was completely out of the blue (in interviews, the writers admitted that their reasoning for turning him into a villain basically boiled down to "well he is kinda shady so we guess he might as well be a mass murderer"), and completely at odds with the fact that Martian Manhunter had been reading his mind and declaring him a true trustworthy hero.

I'm not against change, in and of itself. But turning Max into a villain was, imo, an instance of extremely bad change.

I agree that making Max Lord a villain in Post Crisis was poorly done, but I really like the concept of a Max Lord-type villain. A major villain that can make the world forget he ever existed is a terrifying concept, and I think you can do a lot with it, especially if you have a hero or two who remember but aren't powerful enough to stop him easily.

IIRC, Generation Lost revealed that Max didn't start going evil until his Mom was blown up with the rest of Coast City by Mongul.
