Hopefully this is the payoff of all the work everybodys been doing for where were taking the DC Universe into 2006 and beyond. Everythings story-driven. Were all trying to do the best stories we can. These villains have to be real threats. Theyve got to be as tough as the heroes are, or tougher, because that makes our heroes stronger. Theres nothing better than having a hero go up against someone more powerful and smarter than them, and winning anyway because theyre doing the right thing. Thats why I like making villains capable, powerful, and nasty because it makes our good guys look that much better.
