    To roll the dice on that to try to put a creative team together with whoever?

    I just don't see much of a point, personally.
    So what would you do instead? Hand all the characters to Warren Ellis so he could work them in his The Wild Storm-verse?

    If you haven't had the chance to read it, that was exactly what happened in The Wild Storm.

    If you didn't have a writer lined up who was could potentially write on that level?

    I would just as soon see if left alone with The Wild Storm serving as the high note that the IP went out on.

    It's bad enough that Cole/Grifter has turned up since then in "Mainstream..." DC Comics' continuity.

    Yeah, I know, but not with everyone, he picked some characters and worked with them. It's almost an alternate universe.

    He signed on for a two, maybe three, year stint.

    While I can understand the frustration, I would prefer a lesser number of characters done well than a just passable run that touches on most of the existing characters.

    It is interesting.

    In one panel, we see on of the Razors fire something like a rocket propelled grenade. In the next panel, we see Cole fire off(assuming the casings are each a shot...) about eight rounds. In the next panel, we see the rocket propelled grenade arc straight up into the air. After that arc, it arcs back at the Razors.

    What we don't see is if a bullet actually made contact.

    That said, we do see Cole make a shot when they enter the room that looked like he hit a thrown grenade(we can't see the Razors...) with one hand while reaching for his mask with the other.

    While it seems like they leave it up to the reader, I always assumed that he had actually shot the rocket propelled grenade right out of the air in mid-flight.

    It seems like as it completes it's arc back to the Razor who fired it's helmet, about four pistol rounds hit him in the helmets right before the grenade goes off in his face.

    Yep that's the scene I was referring to.
    To be fair in the original WC's, he tended to use his powers sparsley from what I recall so don't even mind if he wasn't/isn't.
    Still a great portrayal of the character.

    That being the case?

    If this is where it ends, it's a pretty good note to go out on.

    I'm with you 100%.
    While I really want to see more, I only want more of what we got with TWS.

    Yep. Exactly.
    Though as with all things, because the handful of characters were great, there would be the lure to go further and try and include the others which of course can lead to an Icarus situation.
    It would be fantastic to let Ellis do what Hickman has done with the X-Men and just create and run the Universe.

    What is J. Scott Campbell doing right now? Give him Genął plus a good writer and they'd do a great job.
    Making good money as a freelancer! I'm sure DC would let him do an out of continuity thing if he pitched something, but does Scott really want to commit to doing interiors and staying on schedule?

    I'd like to see JSC do a one-shot or 4-issue mini. Nothing that requires too big of a commitment. I think I've been a member of his online store since it launched and his covers aren't selling out at the rate they used to. His cover market is pretty saturated and publishers are increasingly pushing newer talent.

    That being said, I think that creates an opportunity for him to return to interiors in a limited capacity.

    Sure, I think any of the majors would be happy to have him on a mini or maxi series. But I just get the feeling Scott's probably happier doing what he's doing now.

    It's like I read an interview with Joe Mad a few years back and he said, he's always getting offers to come back to comics, but he's doing just fine working for video game companies.

    Forget being better than The Wild Storm...

    This bit probably won't even hold a candle to Wildcats 3.0.

    That said, you never can tell when something might surprise you.

    I haven't read the entirety of Joe Casey's run but what I have read is pretty decent. It seemed like he was taking the idea of pushing superhero comics further seriously.
