I have just now become aware that a few people are floating this theory. I know the smart move is to just act all mysterious and tell people to keep reading.
But no, she is not Stephie. They are two blonde girls with bad things in their background, other than that, they are almost completely opposite—Charise comes from extreme wealth and privilege, for one thing.
But the BIG thing is, Charise is a killer, a torturer. She would maim a teenager as a warning to others.
I would NEVER, EVER write Steph like that. I would quit first. So, I am not going to be mysterious, that is not Steph. 100% no.
Appreciating the direct answer. Really, really appreciating it. Haven’t read much of the character only saw a few photos and the theories so I was kind of hoping it would some how work out… But I’m really glad you just came out and said it so that when I do get around to reading it I’m not putting myself through hell thinking Steph possibly turned into a character so sinister.
Believe me, if I could have snuck Steph in the back door like that? Either I or Scott Snyder would have done it by now. We’ve tried everything.
But if I COULD sneak Steph back in (which I have to admit I have mostly given up hope on), it would not be as a torturer and a murderer.
The Oracle thing and the Superman kiss, I didn’t even know about those until you guys did, they are in different editorial offices.
