Considering that Bedard sucks, then yes.
The pitch wasn't bad. Editors sliced it to ribbons. It was like two months of set-up with special one-shots detailing how Batman chose each Outsider over another candidate. In the end Salvation Run killed Bedard's proposal because top brass behind DC thought it be better used as an event than a Elseworlds tale. So bye bye Boomer, Catwoman, and Martian Manhunter.
It's still amazing that Chuck Dixon churned out an enjoyable first few issues since all he had for prep time was a month.
