    Most of what you're complaining about has only taken place over the last ten-fifteen years actually. Until that point, the character and his origin, powers, supporting cast, ect, didnt see any more...

    I dont pay too much attention to sale figures, but Im fairly certain Morrison sold better. Of course, that's Morrison, and he had the benefit of a media-hyped relaunch and the first #1 to appear on...

    I half suspect we might see a digital-first title or two using old continuity versions, to make up for the books that are ending/have ended, like Smallville, Batman Beyond, and so forth. No new...

    About the only thing that proves is that Batman sells better right now. Which is not to say Superman is broken. And yes, its a crappy situation for the character to be in, but this is what happens...

    Naturally. But DC missing the mark in their attempts is not DC purposefully making something fans dont want; its just human error.

    The character isnt broken. Granted, he's had some hiccups since the reboot, (Diggle bailing out before his first issue shipped) and some less than enviable creative teams (Lobdell) but as a whole,...

    I liked the old Comet as well; Mystery in Space was a fun series. But Morrison gets a pass to completely re-imagining the character because it was a fresh continuity where things, by design, are...

    I dont know how other LCS do it, but the kid-focused titles, like Teen Titans GO and Ultimate Spider-Man are sold right next to all the other books when they come out. Then they have their own shelf...

    Well, you're talking about the problems with a lack of content per issue; where a single story will be spread thin across several months' worth of issues. And decompression is a problem with the...

    So the real question is; are there any studies out there that delve into what type of comic would appeal to kids? If there is, I've never seen one, and without proper studies, taken over time and...

    I had no idea they were a thing, but I can see how the writer would be leading into that here.

    Anyway, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt regarding Comet for now. Maybe he struck a deal with...

    Well, I do think that most storylines running for six issues (essentially a full trade) and crossover events running for months on end (Rotworld, Doomed) needs to be scaled down some, but I think a...

    I think Smallville really whiffed on a lot of the guest stars they had, but Maxima I thought they pulled off fairly well. Whoever the actress was, she had the right amount of "crazy eye" to make me...

    You think? I dunno, I quite liked him in Morrison's Action; he had a nice, morally gray (but ultimately heroic) characterization that made him unpredictable and fun to read. This issue really just...

    The insinuation is that the new armor she wore in this issue is a "heavy combat" mode her usual uniform can access. So in theory, we'll see her activate it when sh*t hits the fan. Though that raises...
