We here at Fuck Yeah Savant and Creote, Inc. understand this wholeheartedly. This day can be seriously stressful for a lot of people. If it is any consolation whatsoever, Savant and Creote (well, mostly Savant) would like everyone to know that they’ll be spending the day doing things that would make Savant’s father’s blood positively curdle. He would also advocate this as good stress-relief. However, Savant gives horrible advice, so take that one with a grain of salt.
Happy just-another-Sunday-in-June, everyone!
I always like to know how and where the inspiration for characters come from. I create characters all day long. And I can create them from the simplest of things or events. So when new characters that play a somewhat large part in a story appear that obviously have a long history connected to each other, in this case Creote and Savant-
I wanna know. How did they come to be?
I have a slight theory… I try to follow everything Gail Simone posts and says. I can’t follow her every post everywhere- I’m not a stalker- but I am a fan. I know she posted she originally had a concept for a Male Black Canary when she was first approached to write the Birds (which I’m not going to lie, I’m a bit obsessed with this concept of a Male Black Canary). I can’t help but wonder if Savant grew from some of the discarded seeds of the Male Black Canary. I definitely see a similarity, a blurred mirror image or inverse concept between him and Canary (as well as him and Oracle, but that’s another story).

Okay, so I’m reading some Birds of Prey right now because I got interested in these characters, Creote and Savant.
They first appear in issue # 56 if you’re interested.
Creote(big guy) is apparently a tad helplessly in love with Savant(blondie) who’s just the most clueless fuck ever.
It takes a couple of years, but in V2 # 4 - 5 Savant finally learns the truth and it seems like he doesn’t mind much by the way they’re hugging in the rain and being painfully adorable.
I got this uncontrollable urge to draw them yesterday, and I regret nothing.
I COMMAND YOU TO ENJOY IT.
OH my GOD. The FEELS!
This is so emotional and expressive, oh, my. Well done, you. *salutes*
And this is the second reason why you should never mess with Dinah.
Upside-down Savant is the cutest Savant
all surprised and knocked off his feet (literally), silly boy.
Reblogging self because sometimes I forget I have a tumblr specifically for these two, whoospies.

First of all, about 90% of issue #1 would have been handled completely differently.
I would justify the downright inexplicable ruthlessness Savant seems to be displaying by reason of Creote. In an issue or two I’d have it revealed in a conversation between him and Waller that he caved voluntarily in issue #1 to show the team what would happen if they did the same in a real situation, and that he got his sentence slightly reduced for that as anyone on the team would for a special job, that Waller planned to have him not on the active team, but in reserve (doing largely hacker work) all along. Because as everyone knows, Savant rocks the double-cross (see: the cases of Senator Pullman, the White Canary/Penguin, and the Calculator.)
I would also reveal that Waller, having figured out that his weak spot is Creote (as he rather wears this information on his sleeve, of course) has made a bargain with him to let Savant work off both of their sentences, for a win-win. She gets control of a master hacker and a not-shabby-one-bit martial artist for double the time, not to mention having a LOT of control over this guy, as she knows where he’s vulnerable. Savant gets their freedom - Creote’s first, then his - and naturally would be willing to go to extreme lengths to make good on this deal.
I think that would be both believable and a good, deep motivator for his character in this series. I don’t buy Savant acting as randomly violent as he is in this series, after everything he’s gone through, for no reason. But as Sherlock said, love is a more vicious motivator.
(Also I would have Waller ply him with conjugals, to get him and Creote face-to-face at some point in the series, heighten the emotion and up the ante. But that’s just me.)

For good or ill - and I know what a shock this is after the events of September, and the fact that this makes his death having been faked twice now since June 2010 - Savant seems to be reappearing in Suicide Squad #’s 6 and 7, at least - nothing has been said about him after that. Naturally I’m getting every kind of bad feeling from this, as Suicide Squad has been a series that has so far reveled in character deaths and gratuitous violence, and Savant has already been done very, very badly by the series writer Adam Glass. But in an interview regarding the upcoming story arc, Glass has said,
“Deadshot and company have been sent to track the AWOL Harley to Gotham City. Along the way we’ll learn why King Shark has been acting so strange, the identity of the two new female members [familiar faces to New 52 fans] and how Savant - who “died” in issue #1 - could possibly be on the team.”
Also included were two preview pages of the upcoming arc, in which we see Savant thrice, in his DCnU redesign.
No, I have no idea why they’re flying. If I were not mortally concerned by the way this series chews up and spits out its characters, Savant already having caught the bad end of that, I would however say that he does look rather dynamic on that last pencilled page.
Further buletins on this appearance as events warrant.

So can we talk about
that one time
Savant shot up Deathstroke
and how he is not only a smooth criminal (as it were)
but how Adam Glass
is a dick.

You know, I believe every artist has at least one redeeming quality (yes, even Liefield, it’s got to be in there somewhere), and whatever else might be said about Ed Benes, he drew Savant hella’ sexy.

Gosh and golly gee, whoever knew Savant was just so badass, so much of the time?? Turns out there’s just too much of his total and inherent awesomeness to cover in one day! I’ll have to finish tomorrow - it’s going to have to be a Savant Is a Badass Weekend, instead!
