The Curse Of Stephanie Brown Continues

She was in Batman Inc: Leviathan, but it was declared part of the Old DCU and never referred to again.

She was no longer a Robin.

There was no Spoiler.

She was Nightwing for a short time in the Smallville comic but that decision was reversed.

At NYCC, Grant Morrison said they had pitched her in a projects but had been told “no”. Scott Snyder said similar at San Diego about wanting to use her in Batman #12. Both Grant and Scott have the reputation of getting their own way in comics. And a number of other creators have reported similar experiences.

And last week, as she appeared in Young Justice, the episode “Before the Dawn”, as a civilian character who barely speaks two lines, the episode was pulled from the schedule and replaced with repeats – more on that later today – but it is still available on iTunes.

And here she is.

Played by one Mae Whitman (also playing Wonder Girl)

Can it feel anything more than a mass conspiuracy to deprive readers and viewers of Stephanie Brown? Or is it building a wave of frustration and demand that will result in a Spoiler #1 for 2014?

Come on, it beats the Mayan calander as far as these theories go…
