In an interview with TV and Movies Dot Com, writer Tom King revealed that it was DC Comics editorial that decided which characters to use in Heroes In Crisis. King came up with the story idea and DC plugged in the characters.
As I’ve said many times before, I don’t pick the characters for my story; I give my plot to the editors and then the editors pick the characters for me. So I told them in the beginning, “this is what it’s going to be — it’s going to be about one hero who’s made a mistake and it’s going to be about the two heroes that get framed for that mistake.” And they said, “okay, it’s Booster, Harley, and Wally, those are the three characters.”
But even though he wasn’t in charge of which characters to use, King somehow claims the story was always about them.
This was always about those three characters. It was a Harley story, a Wally story, and was a Booster story.
But is it a story worth reading? We expect a Durnkin Reveewz in the future.
