@Captain13 said:I love how you pointed out 2 Avengers who most people think SHOULDN'T be on the team to prove your point.
Wolverine is an X-Man who has sucessfully tranistion to the Avengers.
Spider-Man is a solo hero who has sucessfully transitioned into both the Avengers and Fantastic Four.
What's your point, dude?
He adds a new dynamic to the team instead of repeating the same old stuff. In less than a decade he'll be an iconic Justice Leaguer.
@Captain13 said:How am I shooting myself in the foot? An ongoing would give Cyborg his own stories and along with it his own significance away from the league.Something the rest of the team has.They are all sharing the spotlight in this book, but because they are all more popular than Cyborg, of course the other members will get more attention and do more in the book that he will and on top of it they get to be stars of their own books.Without Justice League Cyborg doesn't matter.He's not going to gain popularity by being overshadowed in a team book. War Machine appears in Secret Avengers,appeared in the Iron Man film and had his own ongoing yet he's still playing catch up with Storm.You think Cyborg is going to fair better by simply being a member of the league? Black Men have been members of the league before.It doesn't matter that Cyborg is now a founding member because people only care about what you did as a member not who was there first.I care that it's afrrimative action because it's phony attempt at selling a black character.
Okay, so you want an ongoing comic for Cyborg but you're not supporting him in the Justice League? You're shooting yourself in the foot, man. The longer that people complain, he longer DC will wait to release a solo. They want him to do well, so they're not going to embarrass themselves by putting him in book before fans are ready. And who cares if it is for Affirmative Action or Race? I'd rather DC start fixing the race issue than ignore it for another 70+ years. I applaud them for this. As a Black man, I'm happy to be represented by the heroic, amazing Cyborg.
It's shooting yourself in the foot because you're complaining about Cyborg being in the JL. If you want a solo, you need to support him being promoted. Characters don't get solo titles because of complaints. They get solo titles because of fan SUPPORT. That's the point I was trying to make about shooting yourself in the foot.
Furthermore, DC won't release a solo title if they think that fans won't support it (due to whining). They would rather not release a solo at all, then release a solo for their most controversial member only to have it fail, mkay?
And a lot of people like Spidey and Wolverine as Avengers--a lot of people wished they showed up in the Avengers films.
