Comics are Awesome III

Seems like it's way past time to restart the very lengthy Comics are Awesome II thread. Old thread found here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=908

So, it's not just Batwoman. Apparently marriage is a bad thing for ANY DC character at this point. Even Animal Man/Buddy Baker is on the road to divorce.

How do we know DC editorial didn't mandate it? They certainly exert control over storylines in every other book. Whether Lemire came up with the storyline or whether editorial mandated it, it's a bad idea and a pretty basic betrayal of what makes Animal Man different from just about everyone else.

I find this whole "heroes can't be married" trend just absurd. Married people exist in the real world right along with single people. So do divorced people. So do middle-aged and old people for that matter. They ought to exist among the super hero population of comics as well, if we're genuinely aiming for diversity and verisimilitude. It makes sense for certain characters, like Batman, to not have a happy personal life because it doesn't fit the character. Other more well-adjusted characters could probably make things work, particularly if they're both in the same game. I've always thought Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon would make a good couple, just to pick one example.

It seems to me that instead of this blanket "no one can be married" policy that each character's individual circumstances ought to dictate their marital state.

This will probably seem like a weird question, but I'm wondering why we started the new thread after part II got to 186 pages rather than just waiting for it to go to an even 200. The first one was ended at 100. This could have set the standard for resetting threads: first 100, II 200, III after 300, etc...
