By your thought process, everytime I leave a kids movie with my children I should be pounding in their head how horrible the movie was for me since I am way to grown up for the silliness that I just saw. I choose to look at it through my children's eyes and ears, instead.
If there really is a case of comparing apples and oranges, this is it. Mickey Mouse and gang are nothing like Avengers, X-Men or Justice Society. Nor is it comparable to Scalped, Fables, or Preacher.
But Image United is aimed at just as much a specific audience as Disney comics.
I think the problem is that the audience for mainstream Marvel and DC books isn't very well-defined, some are aimed at older fans with a passion for continuity, and some are aimed at younger fans who like widescreen decompression and all that jazz. The problem is that both sets of fans read titles called 'Avengers'.
Should I put myself in the head of Cat-Scratch whenever I read Mighty Avengers and see it from the perspective of a 30-year Avengers fan? Should you put yourself in Twigglet's head when reading a Bendis book?
All we should do is review from our own heads.
And yes, I realise your response will now just involve 'head'.
