    This storyline is part of “The New 52” and it’s just at crummy-silly as almost all of the rest of them. I’ll take the original storylines. DC shot itself in the foot when it tried to refurbish things so it could keep up with Marvel. It was a huge mistake but now they’re invested in it. Bah.

      Rick, I love all those DC comics from the Fifties and Sixties. But, DC now is trying to appeal to a New Generation. I’m not entirely in agreement with the “reboot” (New 52) but I’m willing to give it a chance.

        …and 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s. The New 52 didn’t start until about 3 years ago, as I recall it. If I were spending money on comics these days, it would be on the trade collections of the 1990s. Some great story lines.

        Rick, I’m with you on the story lines of the past. But, I’m willing to give this new generation of graphic novel writers and artists a shot.
