I think what he was implying is that if Marvel isn't going to use the character, that Dynamite or Boom might make beret use of the rights.
You missed nothing trust me. Moore's run was great up to a point and IMO is still the best re-imagining of a character (an extremely corny one at that) ever in comics. That new origin story with the alien bio-engineering, imprinted memories & false 'comic-book' origin, alternate bodies & Gargunza was superb.
However, once Moore killed off Moran the series lost a relatable character & closed off a lot of potential. The man/superman dilemma & the relationship with his wife was core to the character, I felt at least.
Then it got boring with MM reflecting on how he was so above normal humans while 'dancing among the stars' (ugh) with Marvel/Miraclewoman. Became even more tedious when Moore left.
Still, I repeat, best ever re-telling of a character, even better than his Swamp Thing origin.
