Second, howzabout the entire team of Titans that were "erased from time" in the Zero Hour time crisis?
More like erased from existence. It still occurred. Deathwing, Terra II and Mirage stayed and if I remember correctly recalled what had happened.

Also, see my caveat about stories completely sucking; Team Titans was not a high point in Titans lore and was frankly best left forgotten.

I did always find it funny that Terra II was originally going to be a lesbian though.

Howzabout Raven's pack of brothers who recently popped into existence, thus negating the extreme significance and importance of her character being Trigon's only surviving offspring?
Which held for a long time. Also, I actually find it kind of stupid that he supposedly had only one surviving offspring. It reminds me of a line from Batman The Animated Series.

Ra's Al Ghul: "Detective, did you truly think that in all my years of life I had sired only one offspring?"

Not saying that Da Trigon Boyz were brought about in a good story, but honestly, I'm shocked it didn't happen sooner. Also, it didn't erase any stories or the impact of them; it changed only the present day.

How about all the characters whose tragic and heroic deaths were rendered utterly meaningless by their recent and convenient resurrection?
Fact of fiction, really. Resurrection has been a trope that's been in fiction for a long time. The fact that it bothers people in the context of fictional universes where a man can fly, shoot laser beams, folks use rings powered by will and imagination, shrink down to microscopic size and can bond with alien symbiotes has always, always baffled me.

The resurrections don't erase those stories. They don't erase the power of a well done story either. But people act like they do. Take Barry Allen for instance; he was gone for twenty years, made into a martyr in the DCU and the memory inspired Wally. What more do you want? Same for Jason Todd; he'd affected Batman in the same way for decades, it was time to switch it up.

How 'bout Donna Troy's nearly incomprehensible contradicting origin stories?
Since cleared up. The different contradictory origins stem from the multiverse being compounded into one Earth in COIE; she had all the different origin memories of different Donna's across the multiverse. Unlike every other hero, she was the repository of knowledge of the multiverse and her alternate selves prior to COIE.

So if you want to be technical, the original origin is correct and the subsequent origins came from all the others being absorbed into her. The past is moot. She moves on from it. Problem solved.

Speaking solely for myself, I realized quite a few years ago that trying to keep track of the continuity of superhero comics that had been in continuous publication since my own parents were children had proven to be a huge waste of my time and money. Because statistically speaking, the truly memorable and outstanding stories were few and far between. That's not necessarily anyone's fault, it's just a fact of life. Moreover, the continual, long-running monthly publication cycle, coupled with periodic staff upheavals and insane power-mad editorial decisions, make creative stagnation and glaring plot/character inconsistencies virtually unavoidable over time. When I realized that, I lost interest in comic books, and especially superhero comics, to a large degree.
So, continuity synching up to you and old things left untouched meant more than good stories? Even if the stuff was awful?

Alright. I don't agree with that at all. But to each his own. *shrug*

I can't wait to see how that is resolved. It's becoming more and more obvious that the Batman #666 alternate future has not yet been averted. It's starting to play out. But can Bruce return and stop it from happening?

Man, that's going to be awesome.

Also, I loved how the "death" played out. Anyone versed in the New Gods knew he wasn't really dead. Omega Sanction, aww yeah. Grant Morrison is a goddamn genius.

Fact of fiction, really. Resurrection has been a trope that's been in fiction for a long time.
A fact of really BAD fiction, 99 times out of 100. The fact that it's so horribly overused in comic books is probably the single biggest reason people don't take comic books seriously as a medium. And yes, more so than super powers, aliens, and everything else, because it shows that the writers either don't know what the hell they're doing, or don't care. And I'm not sure which is worse.

Ditch the capes and spandex, and you know what that leaves you with? A soap opera.

Azrael wrote:The resurrections don't erase those stories. They don't erase the power of a well done story either. But people act like they do.
That's because...they do. When death has become just a temporary ailment at best -- and I'm not talking about for characters whose background or abilities specifically include immortality, but for EVERYONE -- then any conceivable threat your protagonists are faced with, not just now but EVER, loses credibility. And as a result, it also loses most if not all of its emotional impact. For the same reasons, resurrecting characters whose deaths were major dramatic milestones just because you feel like it also diminishes the emotional significance of those past stories. What, they killed off Magneto? Eh, so what, he'll be back. Superboy saved the universe, but it cost him his life? Big deal, he'll be back in a year or two. Jean Grey laid down her life for the sake of the world, and also for the 73rd time? Who cares.

See what I'm getting at? It's a soap opera.

I had a long response prepared, but whatever. All I can say is that if you need a character to stay dead to feel an emotional connection to a good story, then I don't know what to say. You were right to get out, because comics and other fictional stories aren't for you. But that doesn't mean I don't find the notion ridiculous or even see how resurrection suddenly means soap opera.

The only thing I'm going to address is the point you tried to make about resurrection causing comics not to be taken seriously. That's not the issue. The issue is that comics have always had the stigma of being "kids stuff". A stigma that they've always had a hard time shedding. It's been a slow ride out of it. But resurrection has little to do with it; most of the non-comic reading populace aren't even aware of it. The folks who have a problem with the deaths and resurrections are mostly people already reading comics.

Ah-ha! At last someone who gets it!

If your character dies, and then you just bring him back, enough times where the audience begins to expect you do bring your deceased characters back than it ruins the purpose of their deaths. It completely removes the effect and completely disavows the purpose. If you're going to kill a character, than you should have a reason for that character to have died. Whether it's to show the intensity or strength or conviction of another character, or to simply show that character's commitment to a cause or their own ideals, than the character should stay dead.

Two shows jump to mind with this, neither of them Teen Titans but let's ignore that for a moment while I make my point shall we?

The first of which is Dragon Ball Z. This show suffers horribly from 'resurrection mania' so much that half the time the characters in the show go into fights Expecting to die and be brought back. What kind of a show is that?! I mean when your characters know that their deaths will be completely and utterly meaningless? When they have to actually pull something out of their hat to have the characters stay dead, when Staying Dead is the abnormality, something is seriously wrong.

The second is Code Geass. However due to discussion of this title's end I'm going to hide it inside a spoiler tag for those of you who haven't seen it.
Spoiler:
For those of you who have, or simply don't intend to watch this amazing show let me simply remind you, at the very end, the main character dies. And he does so in such a way that his death has meaning and purpose. Long story short Lelouch, the main character, has spent the past two years unifying the entire world in their complete and utter hatred of him. So when he dies, the person who kills him (his best friend wearing a masked persona) becomes the savior of the world, and all the hatred Lelouch had gathered unto himself is replaced by harmony and peace. The world is united because through Lelouch's subjection of the world, virtually all military, political, and religious powers have either been swept under his foot or bowed down to his rule. His death has purpose, in his death the world is redeemed, and, because he intended to die, and in doing so redeem the world, He is redeemed as well. If he were to 'some how survive' (very unlikely considering the publicity of his dead) than the whole purpose of his death would be nullified.

And That is why people need to Stay Dead.

I think you’re all being a bit melodramatic. Just a bit. Little, little bit. So don't snap at me. XD

It seems to me that when a character dies in comics, there’s a reason they died. And when a character comes back, then it’s by some weird event if intentional or maybe because the current writer liked a certain character and maybe didn’t brush up on that character’s history, so a completely halfassed explanation for the character’s sudden arrival has to be scrounged together. Yes there’s the whole “comic book death” where no one really stays dead, but honestly, so what? It’s a fictional story. It may lessen a character’s death in some fashion, but it’s still affect anyone who loves that character, even with the slightly humorous undertones of thinking “well, they’ll probably be back one of these days.” You have to think that that kind of premonition will probably keep that reader reading comics instead of dropping out since their favorite character died because, hey, there’s a good chance that they’ll be back for some reason or another.

I really don’t think it’s that much of a big deal. But that’s just me. I’m just getting in to this stuff, after all.

Ah-ha! At last someone who gets it!
I'm having trouble seeing the correlation between what you posted and what I posted that you quoted.

If you're going to kill a character, than you should have a reason for that character to have died.
Depends on what you're shooting for. If you're looking for the sort of impact you described, that's a different story. For instance, Blue Beetle Ted Kord shouldn't come back; though the JLI fans would disagree with me.

But shock value deaths that end up resurrected don't bother me, because a lot of the time the characters are killed to show how badass a villain is, which is not a good reason. They definitely don't bother me when they're unclear. Many deaths amount to the old fashioned way things were done. You know the Golden Rule; no blood, no body, the guys alive. A good portion of the time the resurrections can tell a good story as well; maybe I just take too much of a long view, but to me, great stories are all that really matter.

Comics have had several of these over the past couple of years and I wouldn't trade them just to stick so some notion that fiction can't break rules that were never in place for it to begin with.

If you want to blame someone, blame fellow fans. Most of the resurrections happen because they're demanded.

I really don’t think it’s that much of a big deal.
I don't either. I used to hold a similar belief on deaths and resurrections as Cylor. Eventually I just let go.

I'd say not to bother trying to argue against it; experience tells me the conversation never goes anywhere.

Short answer, Comics aren't for kids.

Or at least shouldn't be treated as if they're just for children, and even those that are aimed toward children deserve to have enough thought and purpose put into their stories to make them stand up to adult scrutiny, within reason.

The same should, ideally, be true of Cartoons. Never have I met a more irritating person than the one who believes that all cartoons, or all comics are for children, or the immature.
That's why I like this thread so well. The cartoon versions of the Titans are soo washed out and dumbed down, you'd think none of them had any demons.

I like you; lets be friends.

I agree completely. Some of the best cartoons in history saddled the line between being for kids and being for adults too. Look at some of the best cartoons of yesteryear; they were cleverly written to be kid friendly while still having in jokes and things adults could enjoy too, which has helped them remain timeless.

The "just for kids" stigma has always pissed me off.

That's why I like this thread so well. The cartoon versions of the Titans are soo washed out and dumbed down, you'd think none of them had any demons.
... It's... it's like looking into a mirror image of myself...

If that were true, they would never have caught my interest and this discussion wouldn't be occurring.

Another thing. The two of you (Azrael and TheDeceiverGod) obviously feel perfectly justified trashing and completely dismissing the TT animated series in totality because of the ways it differed from the comic books. Which I understand is your personal opinion, to which you're entitled, and so I just leave it at that. As does everyone else here, from what I've seen.

But the second I criticize any aspect of the comics, you accuse me of being ridiculous, impossibly uptight, melodramatic, misinformed, and so on and so forth. And when I outline why, in my opinion, the entire concept of the "comic book death" (and I don't believe it was me who coined that well-known term) is, nine times out of ten, a cheap, piss-poor plot device usually resulting from laziness, indecision, ineptitude or editorial/marketing interference in the plotting stage, you say that I "take things too seriously" and imply that I must not be able to enjoy ANY form of fiction whatsoever. Which is funny, because I'm a fiction writer...but you've done this repeatedly.

I don't appreciate it.

I don't think I ever said I didn't like the show. If I didn't than why would I be here I wonder?

I just don't like how in 90% of cartoon shows today the characters don't get to play the full depth of field. I mean in the comics characters die, get stalk, get addicted to drugs, get raped, tortured, tormented, shot, crippled, maimed, etc etc.

And in the shows the worst thing that happens to them is more often than not they scrape their face. Half the time they don't even bleed.

You show me a cartoon that has their teenaged masked vigilante superhero boy get addicted to heroin, and I'll show you a show about to go off the air.

And That's what bugs me. That there has to be this schism between Comic & Cartoon, that people thing that because Superheros come from comics, nothing 'adult' will ever happen. I mean check out JLU for example, they had villains, and some heroes attempt to swear, but Superman would always cut them off. Why?! Why can't Hawk Girl say 'kick ass'? Why can't the male villains appreciate the sex idol that is Wonder Woman? etc etc

That's what I don't like, not the show itself.

You know, I've thought once or twice that DC should try doing a Batman series full bore and have it on Adult Swim. You know, blood, swearing and deaths. I mean, anime does it all the time; which is one of the good things anime does.

Batman would fit perfect into this mold. It would allow some of the more ruthless villains usable to their full potential. Black Mask is one example. Mr. Zsasz is another. A chief reason we never really see him in cartoons or anything is that it's kind of impossible to do a vicious, deadly serial killer on a kids show without him being taken out almost immediately since we can't see him actually kill anyone.

I'm thinking kind of like Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker (the uncut version) - where we saw him murder a henchman, have a satellite destroy half of downtown and a torture scene of Tim Drake - or basically with the kids gloves off. It would probably do real well with the teenage audience and the adults too. There's definitely an audience for it.

Or, now that I've thought of it, a cartoon allowed to do the sort of things the Arkham Asylum game did.

If I didn't than why would I be here I wonder?
Entertainment?

I'm not a fan of the show, but I chill here myself, so I don't think it's a necessity.

But the second I criticize any aspect of the comics, you accuse me of being ridiculous, impossibly uptight, melodramatic, misinformed, and so on and so forth.
On the misinformation, you yourself say you haven't been in comics for a while. I keep my hands so far in the comics pie that I pretty much know what's going on in a lot of regards. I pretty much know what's going on from different angles. So I correct you, or inform you, or however you wish to see it. That tends to be how discussions work.

And for the record, it's not just you; I've long since lost tolerance for the "blah blah blah death" argument because some people seem to hinge their entire enjoyment of comics based on whether someone lives, dies or a story stays in continuity. I do find it ridiculous; and when I say that it's not meant to offend, but I've never been good at sugarcoating what I say. I could tell you of eight or nine comics divorced from the big two off the top of my head that are fantastic, two of them off the top of my head involving superheroes, where people stay dead, etc. But you left it entirely; that was your choice and you're fully entitled to it - and hell. I respect that, because I know of several people who can't stand certain hobbies but continue out of pure habit or whatever - but that doesn't mean I'm not going to find it ridiculous.

Ah, now don't go getting a big head about it, you. Razz

It's a cool thing, thinking about Bats in all his dark glory where the villains are uninhibited. Talk about a real Batman experience. Something like that could have a good chance of surpassing The Dark Knight, I think.

This really makes me want to see what the new DC branch of entertainment has in store.

Might I suggest Paul Dini be one of the writers?

Seriously, that man gets Batman and his world. He's done wondrous things in the comics since he jumped in several years ago. Take his work with The Joker, for example. Issue #826 of Detective Comics, or "Slay Ride", was just fantastic and exactly the kind of Joker I'd want in an adult Batman cartoon. I couldn't read that issue without hearing Mark Hammil's Joker voice in my head; it was so spot on and basically an unrestricted version of the AS's Joker.

Considering what he does in the comics - where things aren't as restricted - I'd LOVE to see what he could do in a teen aimed cartoon.

This really makes me want to see what the new DC branch of entertainment has in store.
We might not get any real announcements until next years SDCC. The restructuring is a slow burn; it's not just throwing everything into chaos and fitting things as it see's fit in the aftermath. So I suspect they haven't really looked at many projects yet.

Most certainly, sir. I've heard his name before, and nothing but praise follows it. He was a writer for Arkham Aslyum, wasn't he?

There's nothing like a well-written Joker, I can tell you that.

Hey, I'm fine with that. If it requires some time and patience to get some darn good productions on the way, then I'll wait rather than get something thrown together that's only ok as far as standards go.

Paul Dini was one of the main writers for Batman: The Animated Series, also known as the greatest cartoon ever made in the history of anything ever. Yes, he also wrote Arkham Asylum. Plus he writes comics.

Paul Dini is awesome.

Here's a fun/interesting fact.

The original Green Lantern, was not part of the Green Lantern Corps.
Yet he did have a green lantern & ring.

Yeah, he does look kind of dorky. That's impossible to get around. Still, Alan can be quite the badass.
