Writer Gerry Conway, who created several characters during his time at both Marvel and DC (including Firestorm, Killer Croc, Vixen and The Punisher) took to his blog recently to discuss and throw a spotlight on the way DC pay credit to their creative talent for the characters they created while working for the company.

The big pull quote for WSJ was Nelson's comment that she wasn't a "comic book reader," which is easy to understand in the context it's said -- Nelson didn't come into her current job as a lifelong comic book fan, but rather applies her expertise as a former President of Warner Premiere and a brand manager for WB's Harry Potter brand to DC's comic book and multimedia efforts. The big pull quote for ComicsAlliance comes from Nelson mentioning that Wonder Woman is her favorite character. You know, the character who was prominently snubbed on Sunday amid a flurry of other films said to be in-development that came tacked on to WB's Justice League movie announcement?
