The creators said they wanted to do more with Diamond Tiara post COTLM but is simply not allowed to. And if you asked me, Hasbro is apparently trying to bury many 7th members deep into the dirt. All are nothing but replacements to each other.

Let him lead it without executive meddling. If Hasbro wouldn’t do it, he will.

Closest we’ll get, hence your statement:
I liked the G4 comics because they introduce elements that aren’t in the show
I really feel that both Hasbro and IDW have their faults at times. Hasbro plays it too safe while IDW supposedly overdo the lore side if things. It doesn’t matter to me. At least we got enough of what their world is.

Grumpy and antisocial
Have any of you used My Little Pony as a reference for any work? I am going to use A New Generation for a university project. I confess that I tried ChatGPT to get some references (I’m not going to copy it, I’m just using it to have a more varied choice of words) and they kinda managed to get almost everything right regarding the plot. The only mistake was describing Hitch as “a loyal Pegasus who grapples with his own sense of duty and loyalty”.

True, but you said:

And i wanted to point that out.
As for the other:
And if you asked me, Hasbro is apparently trying to bury many 7th members deep into the dirt. All are nothing but replacements to each other.
Wouldn’t surprise me if this was because of the fact that they didn’t wan’t criticism for bringing a 7th member. (Especially considering Starlight Glimmer’s reception)

It was a different time and anyway, she’s a very unofficial 7th member due to not bothering any of the 6 since season 6. Regarding the g5 side of things, there was originally 5 but someone planned a 6th member, which sadly wasn’t Sprout but yeah.

As much as people complain about it, Starlight wasn’t really a “7th member”, not in any way that mattered. She was a new major character, but aside from Twilight herself, she rarely had extended interactions with the Mane 6 that weren’t forced on her. They were more like “friends of a friend”, while Starlight’s actual friends consist mostly of characters the other Mane 6 don’t hang out with anyway. In that way, I wouldn’t mind if Comet came back and and made a friend group out of some of the other G5 minor characters.
Besides which, I don’t know how we can act like there was some sort of hesitation about it when they went all in on having Misty be a new member of the group.

Offtopic, but I am glad that Starlight didn’t become a member of the Mane 6 in G4, I like that she created her own circle of friends
Ontopic, I would also like it if Comic formed his own group of friends as well
