"What The Hell Am I Doing Here? I Don't Belong Here."
I look into those crazy Creeper eyes and like a mother gazing at her child, see all kinds of potential in one of The DC Universe's least favored of greenheaded stepchildren.
Scip seems to think The Creeper works best as a "guest star" in other people's books. Y'know someone who comes in and livens things up in an A-lister's title, only to escape back to limbo with the next month's Diamond solicitations.
Has DC really created a universe of "guest stars," destined to play bit roles, cogs in the "deus ex machina" DC machine?
Does something like Grant Morrison's "7 Soldiers of Victory" dispel the notion of the "guest star" or propagate it by placing seven disparate DC characters under one banner?
Are there truly no small parts, just small actors? I'm curious as to what you all think.
