The Worst Bit of the New 52
I have to say, the cancellation of Mister Terrific is not coming as a shock. I always enjoyed Michael Holt in the JSA, and was really looking forward to this series. Alas, he went from being the quietly badass third smartest man in the world to a guy who spouted lines like this:
I have the hardest time finding any of the dialogue natural, especially the bit where he calls himself “black guy”.
Then he does it again in issue four:
How horribly cliche.
Congratulations DC: You managed to take one of the few heroes with no blackspliotation tones and turn him into one of the crowd. That’s as bad as, I dunno, deciding to make a Batman of Africa, like it’s this one tiny place or like that’s the only place that can have a black Batman.
