I am there with you 100%.
The only thing I would maybe slightly amend is that I think DC is trying to copy the Marvel "everyone has a dark side" theme -- look at what they are doing with Superman, Wonder Woman, etc. Characters who used to be paragons.
I guess they think paragons are boring... and maybe the sales bear that out. But I miss the paragons... and as you say, the light-hearted stuff. Not all the way back to Silver Age... but Bronze Age maybe.
