Reasons to love Gail Simone.

I think these are both reasons to love YOU, is what.

Such a pity, Gail, that Misfit isn’t coming back.  I loved her in Vol 1 of Birds of Prey.  She was the perfect pain in the ass for Oracle - a belated penance for all the stunts pulled as Batgirl!

Oh, I probably misworded that…I wouldn’t say she’s NEVER coming back, just that the book idea that I had that included her was eventually passed on.

I might as well talk about it.

This was a book I worked on for a year with alterations. I wanted to do a girl team book featuring Black Alice, Misfit, a young Bumblebee, and led by Stephanie Brown. They would all be going to the same high school. The plan was to have BQM co-write it with me.

It went through lots of permutations and changes but eventually, they passed on it, which was understandable but a little bit (okay, a lot) heartbreaking. I don’t want to say more about it, but that’s a big reason why I was hopeful about some of those characters, because it seemed a pretty exciting premise.

But it doesn’t mean those characters won’t be back at some point, hopefully they will.
