    I mean look at Dan Garrett, there are people who don't even know who he is and some other guy is running around in his outfit.
    I think if you want to have characters do that for a little bit, you need to be working towards setting them up with their own identity eventually, honestly even if it's as simple as adding a color to the name.
    That's the fault of the comics not building up Dan Garrett. Are we supposed to be beholden to the original forever, even if the newer one is better or more suited for modern times?

    "Fault" is kind of a loaded word. I mean, he simply stopped being popular a long time ago. And by the time Ditko came up with the Ted Kord version, the old fans moved on to other interests.

    Well, a lot of heroes don't get popular because the company doesn't support them. Popularity doesn't necessarily just appear.

    Yes, that's true it is the comics' industry's doing, but, no, we're just not supposed to use his name.

    The character pictured is still a legacy, so my comment still stands.
