    How do you figure Ms. Marvel is "new?"

    Her name isn't new.
    Her costume isn't new.
    Her powers aren't new.
    Her being a Muslim superhero isn't new.

    It's simple.

    1. Conway created a brand new character, and DC pays royalties for doing so.
    2. DC made cosmetic changes to the character so they don't have to pay the original creator.
    3. This...

    DC has no respect for its characters.
    DC has no respect for its talent.
    DC has no respect for its fans.

    I don't know why people keep supporting this joke of a company.

    Let's see... the biggest flap over this movie was how they were (unnecessarily) changing the characters. And now you want MORE of that???

    If Hollywood wants non-white characters, THEN CREATE SOME...

    You couldn't possibly misunderstand any worse than you do.

    The cancellation was a corporate move regarding the movie licenses. Had little to do with current sales, which fluctuate. The...

    Adding gayness to a Marvel mutant is like saying "and by the way, the Titanic was out of toilet paper."

    It's more anticlimactic than anything else.

    When you live day to day fighting for your...

    I started reading in late 1974. I sympathize with you greatly. But I have not lost my "love" for comics at all.

    I loathe new Marvel and DC. They treat their characters like they're just...

    Depends on what books you're reading. But they do not GROW out of fascist thinking.

    The superhero as we know him, Superman and his descendants, is actually an outgrowth of New Deal LIBERALISM. ...

    This question remains open. Haven't seen any official statements on the Dark Horse stuff. I think Marvel is saying nothing because they want people happily buying the new titles before they risk...

    Canon I miss?

    The DCU as it existed in January of 1985. It only needed better stories.

    Alex Ross's JUSTICE series proves there was nothing wrong with those characters, they just needed better...

    Any time limitation was just a hokey plot device to limit a character. Aquaman was almost ruined by that limitation alone. Thor's hammer limitation led to a lot of warped plots. Only Hourman made...

    The interconnectedness of Marvel was even stronger under later editors.

    Other than those occasional crossover hero fights, Stan Lee actually restricted the appearance of characters. For example,...

    I liked this series for the most part.

    Didn't like that Parker "Captain Kirked*" Flash Gordon into some kind of spoiled fratboy doofus.

    My expectations could not possibly be lower, and that's before seeing these godawfully dull images.

    At this point, there's virtually no chance I'll ever spend money to see this thing. Fox is...

    " I just want to show people that you don't have to change what it is about these characters that made them appealing back then. "

    I agree completely. So why did you turn Flash Gordon into some...

    If you considered how well Lucasfilm keeps its continuity straight even across multiple media (novels, comics, cartoons, movies, games, etc.), you might not be so quick to defend DC and all it's...

    Ain't THAT the truth.

    DC's probably Levitz's only real option, income-wise. Not much call for his kind of editing in the indy titles; they rarely last long and even more rarely have...

    In other words... *yawn.*

    Shouldn't have gotten my hopes up that DC would try to sell me some comics again.

    Sounds like DC is talking about one thing while giving the impression (intentionally or not) of something else.

    We're talking continuity. What's *in* the comics.

    June being a "new era of...

    The original multiverse was vastly simpler than anything you discuss here. What a mess DC is.

    You prove my point.

    Not exactly correct. The Action Comics Weekly of the early 90s worked. It sold just fine and lasted 42 issues. DC gave up on it because it took so much effort by editorial (keeping track of 4 or 5...

    A great many employees in this world have been fired for exactly that reason. It can and does happen all the time.
