Am I getting this wrong …
In my run writing the Robin series (of Batman fame), I made sure both Batman and Robin were portrayed as good, steadfast heroes, with unshakable personal codes and a firm grasp of their mission. I even got to do a story where Robin parachuted into Afghanistan with a group of very patriotic military superheroes on a full-scale, C130 gunship-supported combat mission. And in my short run on the Shadowpact series I kept to the same standard (but with less success as several story details were editorially imposed).
[…] And if I am ever again privileged to be allowed to write Superman, you can bet your sweet bootie that he’ll find the opportunity to bring back “and the American way,” to his famous credo.
… or is Bill Willingham throwing a hissy fit because DC wouldn’t let him turn their comics into Rush Limbaugh’s wettest dreams?
I’m probably getting this wrong.
(Is Willingham still writing Justice Society of America?)
