"I had no idea it [Amethyst] was being animated. You know, when you create something, it isn't unreasonable to imagine it belongs to you. That whoever is in charge in the corporate structure, they'll want to consult you as to where your character is headed. Not DC Comics. Maybe not any corporation. Maybe we could have been better business people, better negotiators. Amethyst has been through a wringer, twisted by lesser lights than the guys who created her -- Dan Mishkin, Gary Cohn and -- if you'll permit me -- me."
