Can someone explain to a casual what the hell Metron is all about? If he's supposed to be neutral, why does it seem like he helps the heroes all the damn time?

Usually the heroes aren't trying to blow up all the stuff he likes to watch from his cosmic Barkalounger.

How has modern lettering become such shit?

Heroes maintain the status quo. Metron likes the status quo.

Pretty much this.

Metron is an observer. Should some great force of either good or evil prevail, it would lead to an end of sorts. Imagine if only one episode of one show play all day every day- even if its the greatest show and the best episode, it will become dull and boring. Now try to imagine it on a cosmic scale.

Metron interferes so that he does not have to face eternity bored to death. You could go so far to argue that he is a greater sower of chaos than Loki in the Marvel universe.

So Metron is basically one of us, a reader, but one that gets to interfere when he doesn't like how a story is going?
>>

He's more like the unstoppable inertia of DC comics status quo, the most powerful of all forces in comics, which makes sure that at the end of the day, Orion and Highfather defend New Genesis barely by the skin of their teeth, while Darkseid flies back to Apokalips shaking his fist and saying "Next time, Highfather, next time!"

metron being an observer is bullshit, the guy is a huge asshole

the only reason he even has that fancy chair is because he sold out to darkseid

>me [on a] throne
Metron!

Still, even Kirby had him as mostly a good guy who's flaw was that he loved knowledge so much he sold out New Genesis at the start of the war for ...was it his Mobius chair? Or was it that stuff that powered it?

I remember High Father saying that Metron in his own way served The Source. And he helped out a lot more than a "neutral" ally would. At the End of Hunger Dogs he even brings a new planet for the Supertown to dock at.

I think his greatest crime under Kirby was actually abandoning the Izak kid who grew up to make Micro Mark.

In Kirby he wasn't exactly a force of inertia. He always wanted to learn more, to do more. He gave Mother Box technology to Apokalips and blew the whistle to Orion on Darkseid's Earth operations. His greatest ambition was to get through the source wall and find super-god.
