@NSlayton Is he done done? I mean, the alt-universe version is appearing in the Earth-X crossover. I feel like no one’s ever done in DC TV. And, personally hyped for Flashpoint; TV gives me the more classic Flash stories.

@NSlayton I thought he was more in the classic Wally West range, but that’s the same with the TV show. And I think normal Rogues stuff will be saved for TV; w/ Flashpoint, it’ll be crazy timey-wimey stuff.

@TalkingSuperman I was guessing they decided Thanos is going to feel too similar, so they’re putting Darkseid on the back burner for a while.

What was your first job as a journalist?

I worked for my college newspaper, usually covering chapel talks & concerts, before interning in public TV, then a paid job in public radio.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes, but not for work. I'm enough of a journalism and literature romantic to think typewriters are kind of great.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Clark Kent. He could conquer the world as Superman, but chooses to do the right thing in his civilian life, keeping the public informed.
