DC and Black Lightning -- You almost have to wonder if DC is trying to alienate Black Lightning creator Tony Isabella. The corporate comics company has a long history of fuckery, from changing the character to "Black Vulcan" to avoid paying Tony royalties on the Super Friends cartoon, to giving BL an illegitimate daughter completely inconsistent with his character in the new Outsiders series, to now having him commit murder in this week's Green Arrow, as pointed out by Hannibal Tabu in his new Buy Pile Reviews. You might think I'm overstating the case, but DC execs (and many readers) are well aware of Tony's emotional investment in his creation, and the fact of the matter is that given BL's general status in the DCU, the fact that he only pops up to be humiliated and misused again and again is mighty suspicious.
