It makes me feel better?
Well, except for the Greedo thing but that's because I'm not a nerd... ...besides we all know Han shot first dammit!

I don't think Neil Gaiman should have worried about it when he reimagined Black Orchid for DC either, just for one example. I don't think Grant Morrison should have worried about fans of the old Kid Eternity when he did the same for that character.
I would say that characters like Black Orchid and Kid Eternity didn't have established fanbases as large as the Martian Manhunter but that probably won't matter to you in the slightest. Instead, I will say that I have become more intrigued by these Manhunter backups than I was when they were originally announced. The problem with that is that I have no interest in the actual book that the backups will be located in, so I can't really justify buying an entire book just for 3 or 4 pages of story.

Just be happy to have Kindt before DC drives him away screaming.
This is absolutely true. After I said that I might start reading Mind MGMT, I tried to track down all of the single issues to catch up. I was able to find all the issues except for the first issue, so I am debating whether to buy them or just wait for the Hardcover. It seems like the first issue of a series like this might be the type of thing that I don't want to skip prior to reading the rest of the series.
