Default Frivolous complaints about Blackest Night

Lots of us liked Blackest Night. Some of you didn't.
In the end, there are a lot of things a disinterested party would have to say that Geoff, Ivan, and DC did well, but there are certainly valid criticisms that could be made as well.

This is not the thread for valid criticisms.

This is the thread for silly, petty, fanboyish complaints that no one could or should take seriously.

Here are mine:

1. Where was Black Lantern Bob Hope? All of America was waiting to see one of our beloved entertainers and stars of stage, screen, and comics return as a homicidal zombie.
2. Why was Little Cheese not one of the characters resurrected by the white light? The rest of the Zoo Crew was restored to their proper forms in the previous big event (Final Crisis), so why couldn't poor Chester have been brought back in this event?
3. The resurrected series in January was a nice idea, but no "Sugar and Spike?" Really? Why is DC so out of touch with what the people want?

Uncle Sam vs. Zombie Lincoln: Stovepipe Showdown. It would've been awesome. Disappointed not to see it.

Magog vs. FDR. No, wait - even better, Magog vs. Eleanor Roosevelt. I understand why they didn't do that tie-in, though - typically, you want your audience to root for the cape, instead of the zombie first lady.

Also, you can't see dark matter. That's why they call it dark.

Two words: Ambush Bug. No event series should be without one.

That is a serious error there, one that I'm sure DC will live to regret.....


And as to "Sugar and Spike" who could resist the idea of Zombie Toddlers....

Yes....and yes.

I'm completely befuddled why we didnt have a Composite Titan Black Lantern. I mean, come on!..... We have Pantha's Head, Bushido's torso, Risk's arm, Red Arrow's arm, a Wildebeest leg, an Anima leg and plenty of cyborg parts laying around for anything else! We could have even used Black Lantern Phantasm as the Composite's cape.

Sometimes there's just no way to get over the disappointment of non-researched writing. I think I may stop reading comics forever. Farewell, cruel comicbloc. See ya next week.

No Black Lantern Grant Morrison!



No Booster Gold fighting his own re-animated future corpse (buried in the present day)!

You know that brings up another point to me.

Why no Black Lantern Julius Schwartz or Mort Weisinger? Talk about scary revivals....


And why weren't parts of the book drawn by BL Gil Kane?

Phantasm did show up but was kicked off pretty fast.

It was the best "Big Event" book DC has put out for ages....but it should have crossed over or tied in with every single DC book being published for the months it was out...

Not enough crossovers and tie in books... It is to be hoped that DC will correct this for Brightest Day.

DC tends to forget about Proty I since Proty II took his place and made himself look exactly like Proty I.........

Shame on them for using Nekron... not when the sheer evilness that is Mopee is still out there lying in wait.
