he’s so adorable.
whispers why does the New Guardians writer always make everything come down to Hal for Carol; I doubt if she saw a fucking destroyed planet with dead children floating around she’d ask where Hal is.
goodnight sweet prince
okay, I’m done
DC really shouldn’t surprise me another, and I really shouldn’t care, but I guess I’m just too stupid to really be capable of that. I’ve long given up any hope of anything being good, and I just end up silently wishing maybe they won’t fuck up TOO bad.
And I try to use the term ‘ruined’ lightly because it’s used too often when people overreact, but honestly, this is one of those things where they took away Adam’s ability to be thought of as an anti-hero before he even has a chance. Killing a child, especially someone of your flesh and blood, especially who is saying they love you, just for power is not something you can come back from, not something you can develop forward and overcome, or change, unlike Billy’s really shitty reboot persona.
Funny cause Doc pointed out the boy Adam killed was basically preboot Billy so yeah it’s fitting.
I stress too often that Adam is not a villain, or was never before 52. His modern persona is that of an anti-hero, and he just has a different sense of justice and how he goes about attaining it than what people use in modern times, therefore he is frowned upon y the larger hero community. I am no way condoning the way he goes about it, I’m simply stating he did not kill for the sake of being evil or anything of the like. It was always his choice that he was aware of, his power never corrupted and made him evil or made him choose his ways.
Basically I’m saying he’s not nice, but he’s not evil and he’s not just going to kill a child. You know, even including that Adam MIGHT would have been… you know. It would have been fine because people have dark spots and it makes characters human.
But he wouldn’t do it.
They took away a character who was viewed as morally ambiguous and exceptionally compelling and just wanted to protect his people, and gave us a baby killer who flips cars for no reason other than to cause mass hysteria and is probably going to kill Billy for the same reason he killed the other poor child.
tl;dr: I’m saying Adam is ruined because he is and I really wish I didn’t care anymore, I just wanna make it stop.
just because you’re trying to do something new and different doesn’t make it good
