    The cover to Terrifics looks like DC's trying to ween people off it so they can cancel it.

    Meanwhile, Vertigo and Young Animal are now officially dead.

    I suspected that he does.
    I may have to read more Hickman stuff.

    Ah. Crisis.
    I like how the art focused on the then-popular titles, with at least one member of each of DC's teams. And the Baxter teams front and center.
    Cyborg for Titans, Geo-Force for Outsiders,...

    It was so innovative that Levitz' storytelling style used in Legion was named the 'Levitz Paradigm' and is up there with Wally Wood's '22 Panels' and Stan Lee's 'Marvel Style' (Plot>Art>Script) as...

    This would be good for a three-issue story in the Justice League.
    But not as an event.
    Been done. To death.
    And frankly, I'm just tired of DC glorifying the villains.

    Something else I find humorous...
    Interlac is a Legion staple and is part of the reason non-readers complain about classic Legion: too much detail for them to grasp.

    And Hickman's X-Men has...

    DC created Superboy in 1945, just seven years after Superman's first appearance, due to the increased popularity of child heroes.
    Placing the stories in Clark's youth, left him in something of a...

    Quite possibly.
    Matter of fact, that made me think of the Peter David Young Justice, which was pretty close to the right direction.

    Every time I read the title of the thread, I think of Carol and then Starfire.
    But she's just barely been used in that capacity, And the first time she ever was, it was a fluke because Starlin...

    The lack of backgrounds on the first few pages kinda turns me off. Makes it look sorta like a webcomic.

    I don't really care for another reboot, either.
    And hopefully, this is a book with a...

    If DC was to take Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Justice League and give them each an 80pg or 100pg Quarterly magazine, with all-new self-contained stories, one classic reprint and some...

    May sound sneaky...
    But if it helps them avoid another disorganized mess from not thinking things through again...
    I can overlook it.

    I think the line-ups of each team would play a factor in distinguishing them.

    DC has a lot of characters that work best in teams.
    More than one team can accommodate.

    While some readers would...

    Probably not a need for a Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman at the same time, either.

    What if they made the JSA have two timelines...
    One where they're the current JSA of whatever form that DC puts them as following Doomsday Clock.
    And the other that has Infinity, Inc.

    Then...

    Quite possibly, but they could be learning from this instead of trying harder to distance themselves from something that 'works'.

    What could Didio and Co. learn from the classic tales?

    Instead...

    Cynical + dark is like double-dipping.
    Sure to weigh the reader down.

    I don't mind dark stories as long as there's an optimistic undercurrent that keeps me from throwing my hands up and...

    I think that was directed at my comment about characters being overburdened with darkness.
    Where I was referring to the Fleming Bond, Doyle Holmes and Dent's Doc Savage, and how their stories...

    Something else that shaped my theory is how comic shops will have a 'kid' section, mostly with Archie and what the publishers think would be 'kid-friendly', which translates to something that...

    The biggest problems I've seen with 'rehashing' has been from major plot points being retconned out of existence and then needing to be reinstated to make the characters 'right' again, only to pale...

    Yeah, from what I've seen, DC (or maybe just Didio)'s idea of 'heroes can't be happy' translates as 'a neverending shadow of some tragedy that follows the hero wherever they go'. Not a temporary...

    He has a 'glass half empty' view of it that's a bit biased, if you ask me.

    It could also be a testament to the quality of the work from 30 and 40 years ago. Something they should be proud of, and...
