Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)
I think this is actually the perfect example of why it can sometimes be a bad thing when a fan gets to be in charge of this kind of a franchise. They get to turn it into their ideal version, which often involves bring back alot of the things that they were fans of when they were kids, whether it's good for the characters or not.
Sometimes I think it's almost better to bring in someone who doesn't have 20 years worth of baggage attached to those characters.
They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it is not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance. - Terry Pratchett, Equal Rites
