An Unwelcome Reminder: DC Hates Everything You Ever loved

Hey, you all remember Hour-Man, one of the earliest super-heroes, created 75 years ago this year, right?

And you remember how his son took up that mantle, becoming Hourman?

And you remember how that heroic legacy lived on, inspiring heroes for centuries to come?

Well, in case you had forgotten, this is the week that DC decided to shit all over that legacy:

DC: We hate our own characters so much, that we will continue to cover them with feces and turn them into your worst nightmares.

This is why it's a good thing that DC hasn't revived Johnny Thunder, no matter what I said yesterday. Because the nu52 Johnny Thunder would no doubt be juggling dead babies while violating nuns on the cover...

He's holding a decapitated head, it's edgy so it must be good!

I completely agree. Why turn Hourman into a villain, particularly such an evil villain? If you know who Hourman is, you will be revulsed by this Hourman. If you don't know who Hourman is, then why misuse him in this way?

This is why I don't buy DC any longer.

The darker that DC gets... the less I like it.
