Wow, I can really see where anon is coming from. It's a bit hard to tell how much is the interviewer's perspective, and how much is them interpreting Puckett correctly, but he really does kind of trash Babs. Kinda rude. Plus his attitude towards fans is more than a bit abrasive.>>130246442
Well, you also are still, as far as I know, a Dixon-only purist when it comes to Steph, which while I can respect that, I don't think is really fair to many other writers, including Miller and Tynion, who poured a lot of love into Steph.>>130246429
I agree that power levels as a reason for loving a character is really frustrating to talk to. (As I find out every time I say that I think sometimes Superman can legitimately win a race against Flash.) But people who like power levels would say that I just say that because my favorite character will never be best at anything.
Maybe they're right. Kinda rude of them to say it. And I think what Puckett said about the fans was rude too. Maybe there was a lot of namecalling that isn't on the record. But I don't like it. Not classy.>>130246591
in 2009, I'm pretty sure O'Neil was not doing anything with DC (otherwise, I seriously doubt they would have let FabNic create Azrael 2). And Dixon had been trashcanned HARD in 2008, no reason given, and a clear "He'll never work in our town again" given to the fans. Dixon only returned to DC as a stunt for the Robin and Catwoman 80th anniversaries.
