DC gets a new Milestone

the character from the Milestone comic book company will now be part of the DC universe.

I'm a bit mixed on this news.

one part of me is jumping up and down because I loved (ok still love) the comics that Milestone made in the 90s.

But I am a sad because I'm a little nervous that way heroes of color get treated in comics sooner or later a crappy writer will get their hands on a milestone character and jack them up.

and on the business end I wondering does this mean the guys who owned milestone sold their characters to dc? Does this mean one of the first Black comic book companies is no longer black owned.

DC Comics has only licensed the Milestone characters. Milestone Media still solely owns the characters, and Derek Dingle and I still own Milestone, 100%.
