Pottymouth Doctor Fate?

Paul Levitz used to be President and Publisher of DC Comics until everything changed and his job was split among five people.

That was then.

But during his tenure, he had to deal with an event that saw the All-Star Batman And Robin The Boy Wonder comic by Frank Miller and Jim Lee feature seriously strong swearing that wasn't as adequately obscured as intended. Which led to the eventual dismissal of editor Bob Schreck.

Well, tday sees the release of Paul Levitz' new DC comic Doctor Fate.

Scan 53It is a rather fun comic book, though. and I do love the level of Eqyptian mythology that emerges with rather entertaining side effects, such as a talking cat, or lampshading the cultural similarities to the Night At The Museum… but seriously, that comic should get a pucking font change. Or a new cat.
