One of the things I appreciate about new Superman writer James Robinson is his possessiveness / protectiveness of Jack Knight, the character he co-created and wrote from 1994 to 2001 in Starman.
During DC’s “Superman: Man of Tomorrow” panel earlier today, Robinson was asked by an audience member whether Jack might appear in his Superman run. His answer?
“When you retire a character, you open him up to the potential that he might appear in books that you don’t want him to appear in, or be handled by other writers. Long answer short, no. But I have brought back Krypto.”
