Things That I would Like to Have Happen.
Now that our Whack a Lantern Week has come to a close, it is time to move onto other ideas. It occured to me, that I've been mired in a bit of a funk lately. I'm not all that thrilled with the way that some of my beloved book's storylines are trending. JSA has become all but unreadable, which saddens me to no end, because I LOVE the JSA! The JLA on the other hand has actually been fairly decent, so that's a good thing. The Green Lanterns have been plugging away quite nicely...no complaints there, and Brightest Day has really picked up lately. But I'm STILL in a bit of a snit over What Winick Did, over in JLI: GL, and I tend to hold a grudge.
When he's not writing about Ice or Fire, I have to admit that Winick doens't do too badly. He seems to have a fair grasp of Captain Shinypants, indeed, I haven't liked ol' Nate this much in...well forever. And he's doing a decent job with Gavril and Booster. He just doesn't do too well with women for some reason.
I have been picking away at it like a scab that refuses to heal, and I think that one of the things that bothers me the most about his retcon of Ice's Origin, is that it comes off as a generic X-Man origin. Youngster on the verge of puperty has awesome powers, that must be concealed, accidentally kills a loved one, blah blah blah. It's BORING. It's been done a hundred times already. Every bloody Mutant in the world has that origin. Whereas, a princess from a lost and enchanted Ice Kingdom, who decides to go out and join the world, and teams up with a brash and brassy Brazilian who breathes green fire, and together they fight crime...THAT'S unusual! And frankly kind of cool. Plus it would appeal to girls.
So anyway, getting back to the original gist of my idea...if YOU were running things, what kinds of stories or plots would you like to see covered? One of these days, I'd REALLY like to see Ice tell off either Batman or Hal for their treatment of Guy...or both.
I want to see another Reyes family picnic with various superheroes invited, and have Guy make fat flying green ponies for Milagro.
I want to have either Ralph and Sue resurrected or else at least be the Ghost Detectives again. Anything!
I want to see Barry and Ollie fight over Hal...with Hal loving it, of course.
I want Hippolyta back in Wonder Woman being her usual awesome self.
Zinda drinking. And partying. While she and Huntress tie up Hal and leave him with the bar bill.
I want evil Max Lord vanquished, and the old decentbutslightlyshady Max Lord back.
I...want...Ted Kord. Somehow.
I'd like Superman to go back to actually being heroic instead of stumbling around the countryside whining.
I want to see the Green Lanterns partying at Warriors.
I want to see John Stewart take a shower. I have shower scans of Hal, Guy and Kyle and I NEED one for John! Oh, and letting him have a love life would also be appreciated.
We need to see more of the Shade. Make it so.
Do YOU have any ideas that you'd love to see happen?
