Re: A new superhero: possible?
The seventies had the Powers of Mathiew Starr and Shazam and things like that for kids so an adult version of some new weird super hero should work even though it might have to cross over into several genres to get comfortable as it were and also to find it's audience.
The Powers of Mathew Star lasted barely a season. Hardly a success in creating a new superhero.
Shazam (Captain Marvel) dates back nearly as far as Superman and in the 40's/50's actually out sold Superman comics. Hardly an example of a new superhero.
Baby, you and me were never meant to be, just maybe think of me once in a while...
