Not even a “new” banner could get people to buy comics about Firestorm and Hawkman. They are stupid characters who look stupid, and they’ve never been able to support a book for any length of time. DC is also cancelling part of its horrible, misguided efforts to mainstream Wildstorm and a few others: Deathstroke, Ravagers, Sword of Sorcery and Team 7. Hawkman will go back where be belongs: The Justice League B-Team (the new JLA book). Amethyst will move over the Justice League Dark. Gemworld was a horrible comic from its inception way back in the 1980s. Why did DC revive it? Is that really “new?” I mean, the only stupider idea I can think of is reviving He-Man. Oh. Wait.
I also think it’s time to stop calling it the “New 52,” especially since most of the titles are just rehashing the same stories that were told—and told better—in the original DCU. Of course, Marvel Now! will always be now. That’s the brilliance of calling it “now.” Once again, Marvel is smarter than DC.
