Last weekend I attended the Long Beach Comic & Horror Con and had a blast. I covered the Scott Lodell panel for CBR where the writer spoke on his three DC Comics titles promising a new direction for “Superman,” changes in “Teen Titans” and the “most severe beating of the Joker” ever in “Red Hood and the Outlaws.”  It was a good time!

LBCC: Lobdell Promises Radical Changes for “Superman,” “Teen Titans” & “Red Hood” — Click to read entire article

“Having just recently taken the reins on DC Comics’ ‘Superman,’ Scott Lobdell has already made significant changes to Clark Kent’s mythos. At the 2012 Long Beach Comic & Horror Con, Lobdell expanded on his upcoming ‘Superman’ work and the new, radical direction for Kent. He also revealed what’s in store for Jason Todd in the ‘Red Hood and the Outlaws’ tie-in stories for the Batman family crossover event, ‘Death of the Family,’ and gave some details on where ‘Teen Titans’ is headed after its tie-in issues conclude.

Lobdell was candid throughout the entire panel, fielding questions from fans and even moderating debates between people in the crowd over the topics discussed. Most notably, the subject of Superman and Wonder Woman’s relationship, which began in ‘Justice League’ #12, sparked heated conversations between audience members.

The biggest exchange began when a woman in the crowd made the comment that the relationship between the leading Justice League members ‘feels like a fan story.’ A cosplayer dressed as Superman quickly replied, ‘It’s natural!’ Lobdell let the two converse and they both settled on agreeing to disagree, hugging out their differences. This set the tempo and mood for the rest of the panel, a lively venue where fans peppered Lobdell with their questions and opinions.”
