TV Tropes

I got the inkling that the Gentry are a subtle attack on the DC Comics executives. According to TvTropes, the bat with the eyeball seems to be attack on how the executives keep hyping with the too many Batman comics.--Drgyen (talk) 04:12, December 30, 2014 (UTC)

Well, two Batman comics are being cancelled (Batwoman and Arkham Manor.) I'm not counting Batman Eternal because it's being ended as a result of the events in the book, and not outright being cancelled. I don't think Grant Morrison is trying to make a point; he's written quite a bit of Batman and has no reason to be hating on the Batman side of DC.
My two cents. TheD3xus (talk) 04:53, December 30, 2014 (UTC)
I don't mean that Morrison "hate" Batman comics, but is more of a subtle criticism on how comic book corporate executives panders (in other words selling out and being greedy) to the target audience. The number of Batman comics is just an example of corporate greed.--Drgyen (talk) 22:53, February 12, 2015 (UTC)
I'm inclined to say, "if it's on TVTropes, we don't need it". It's speculation by one guy/gal. Maybe spot on, maybe miles off. --Tupka217 23:08, February 12, 2015 (UTC)
Also, it appears as though The Gentry are servants of something much larger than themselves. If it's supposed to be an allegory for something, it's superseded by a multiversal entity. TheD3xus (talk) 02:21, February 13, 2015 (UTC)


I keep finding these people in Wanted Categories. Should we rename the indivisual members to (The Gentry)? We'll probably never find out where they're from. --Tupka217 09:35, March 8, 2019 (UTC)
