That is seriously the cutest puppy I’ve ever seen.
What did you think of the Green Arrow/Black Canary title? Specifically, what do you think of the accusations that it weakened Canary as a character?
Well, sadly, and I mean this with NO disrespect to the talented writers, I think it weakened BOTH characters.
I think it was done more as a stunt than an organic process. And it felt like it. I was asked to be involved, but I felt the idea damaged Black Canary’s character, and did nothing for Green Arrow.
I stress that this had NOTHING to do with the idea of the characters being married, I love married superheroes. It was more the nature of the characters…we had spent years building the Canary into a force of nature, a wild, untamed chick with a motorcycle and the moves of a master martial artist. In GA/BC, despite the best efforts of everyone, she seemed to end up as a hostage, or a wet blanket fairly often.
Green Arrow wasn’t really helped by the pairing…he has always worked best when he is driven, when he’s doing the Robin Hood thing. Adding Canary sort of unbalanced him a little.
I thought there were a lot of things that worked, the stuff with Mia could be absolutely wonderful at times.
I know people will disagree but both books suffered, it just didn’t work, and sales went down on GA considerably and pretty soon it all had to be undone.
When you do these things, they can be wonderful but they have to be done with care, there has to be a vision that works. There was a lot of good stuff in the series but I don’t think we ever saw a reason why these two were married and what it brought to the stories.
Just my feeling!
This is what the most successful writer of Black Canary and Bird of Prey - Gail Simone - has to say about BC and GA pairing. Someone please show this KC and tell her this is what the COMIC CREATOR has to say about this romantic pairing …. comic cannon my ass.
Forget KC, I’m crushing on this statement that she made, the same one I’ve made REPEATEDLY. I find it ironic that the same issues that tanked the comics, has the potential to do the same with the TV version if they continue to shove it down our throats. It’s very telling that most of what is adored by fans on the show, is a complete deviation from the comics. If that doesn’t speak volumes, I’m not sure what else will.

I spy Olicity everywhere lol
And this is totally why fans shouldn’t be shy about sharing stuff or being vocal. :) Networks love this stuff. So go forth and create! LOL!
