    WAS is the operative word, I think. It's 2018.

    If they tried to relaunch Gen X now it'd fail the same way New Warriors keeps failing.

    There's a large percentage of peeps that left the hobby after the 90's comics book bust that never came back to the shops.

    And both Marvel and DC have yet to get those people back to the hobby stuff like Generation X and New Warriors or Team Titans can't last in this market.

    Which means there's no place to really put all these characters.

    I think Geoff Johns just sneezed.

    Hey, someone get me hip to Tyrone's powers in Cloak & Dagger. I just saw the finale and I'm confused. Did his shadow eat that guy or is this one of those 'fate worse than death' deals?
    The woman in the shadows with the elegant sigh.
    What could a common man do to catch her eye?
    Her easy manner shames me, oh I hate myself so much!
    I tremble and I'm breathless and I'm begging for her touch.
    She sees my anguished urges but continues smirking by,
    If I dare to follow her, it's likely that I'll die.
    But even as she's feeding, as my body's torn apart,
    Will she think upon me kindly?
    When she slowly eats my heart?

    I'm guessing it's the latter. His shadow powers in the comics seem to be some kind of "hell" were you don't die but are condemned to a cold, dark realm where you're driven mad the longer you're in there.

    I'm in the middle, or the end of 4, I think. I should have it wrapped up well before Halloween and I'll get back. I actually kind of dig it. Maybe they get a hotter Dagger for season 2 maybe. Even Cloak can't overuse the cloak right, won't he get driven wild crazy or something?

    Gloria Reuben looks pretty good though still, Rae Dawn Chong version 2.0 as I call her.
    Beefing up the old home security, huh?
    You bet yer ass.

    There are places but the ENTITLEMENT crew will fight you tooth and nail to get those books out of the stores.

    You do Gen X now-with the original diverse cast-he will say this is the book that closed 100 comic book stores like Ms Marvel has.
    You do New Warriors with it's cast-how dare you do a book where a black male forms a team-that is SJW and 50 more stores will be gone thanks to SJW Marvel.

    And you know who with the outdated hair style will make nonstop bashing videos like he is now with Ms Marvel's co-creator-Sana Amanat.

    And the big two arenít pulling the sales numbers they had back in the 1980s and 1990s.
    Yeah there is a REASON for that. It also has nothing to do with SJW.

    In the era where superheroes are at the height of their popularity on movie screens across the country, comics can barely sell 20,000 issues. And thatís due to the indignance of people like Dan Didio and Sana Amanat who refuse to give the customer what they want: Fun all-ages superhero stories filled with action and adventure.
    Doesn't Lion Forge, Dynamite Comics, IDW, KaBoom, Valiant & others do that????

    OHH I forget folks who scream that only want those stories with WHITE STRAIGHT MALES.

    There is a notion that rather large threads may contribute to server load. As such, we are experimenting with closing existing threads to see if it helps matters.
