I know this has probably been mentioned on here before, but DC's characters deserve better treatment than what they're getting. Like them or not, these are legendary characters. I would love to see what stories could be published if they had a half decent management looking after them. :smt013

Honestly they've been handled terribly for so long now it's probably done some lasting damage.

Nothing a good writer can fix. Look at Spider-Man.

I know sales are somewhat up, possibly back to where they were..
I know we did this before but we should list characters who were better off before the reboot and those worse of (and I guess those who have seen no real change)

I have to think the entire Titans franchise is worse off. That stuff looks awful
And my man Booster Gold went from having his own book and patrolling the entire 52 to a crappy JLI run and a guest shot with Hex. Blargh!

I would love for Disney (not Marvel) or DreamWorks to get ahold of Captain Marvel/Fawecett Comics properties and make it all-ages again.

Well, according to Uncle Rich, if Didio fails in his mission to create cross-branding synergy DC plans to just license the characters out, so you may get your wish. :P

Send Flash, Batman and Blue Beetle to Marvel and send the rest of them into the sun for all I care.

Hey I withstood the Howard Mackie/John Bryne Era of Spider-Man that was the lowest of the low. JMS and Paul Jenkins brought that character back. Then OMD happened and Pete had to die. Slott has given us the now truly SUPERIOR Spider-Man. :P

I just remember Rich saying that Didio had a plan for Stephanie Brown. We already know what that plan is.. ANTI-CLIMATIC.

And that would be a bad thing because?... :smt017

Seriously, if TW and DC really wanted "cross-branding synergy," they'd have DC, WB Animation, David Goyer, and whoever's spearheading the production of movies featuring DC characters over aw WB, together and create a shared blueprint for the next reboot that would serve as the launching point for the next generation of, animated series, tv shows, etc.

That way, instead of there being six different versions of Superman or Batman over six different media platforms, there's one Superman or Batman whose stories are told over multiple platforms.
