Originally posted by odessasteps one of my friends has given up on DC and Marvel, mainly saying "are there really any new stories to tell with people like superman or batman or spider-man?"
my biggest issue is people who are now 3rd or 4th generation fanboys who are now in positions of power and their stories read like warmed over fan fiction. (colored lanterns for one)
Agreed, although it is hard to argue the success of "colored lanterns". Like I say, I enjoy a lot of Johnns stuff, but who was clamoring for Barry Allen's return? And sorry Geoff, you may love Aquaman, but he will NEVER be an A Lister.
