If Comic Book Resources’ “Comic Book Urban Legends Revealed” series ever runs out of material, it could just look to its own comments section, where all manner of unconfirmed (and unconfirmable, probably) rumors about Mark Waid are running wild:
“The story I heard about that Kara appearance [in Christmas With The Super-Heroes #2, from 1989] was that Mark Waid was fired as an editor as a result of including her post-Crisis. Of course, I seem to recall that head honcho Dick Giordano inked that story, so I always figured that probably wasn’t true.”
“Mark Waid was fired as editor from DC because he threw a typewriter at a fellow employee. Waid was also fired from Fantagraphics for similar hotheaded behavior.”
“Waid did not really throw a typewriter did he? Seriously that guy needs to be on meds.”
I heard that he shot a man just to watch him die, but I look forward to that being debunked in a future edition. If this is some kind of new “Mark Waid: Bad-ass Comic Maverick” meme that I’m not aware of, I have to admit, I’m all for it.
