If it's done well (Wally West, Cassandra Cain, Stephanie Brown, etc...). That's the key. I have no real issue with this new Atom...except Ray Palmer exists in this new version of the DCU. Because why, exactly? The Alan Scott example doesn't hold water because he's still Green Lantern (albeit a new version). Ray Palmer was a supporting character in Frankenstein...And he developed the miniature tech for their mobile base. A nice lead in to his becoming the Atom? Or not. The Azrael stuff seem like a pretty ridiculous point of contention as JPV' s story was over. Why not introduce a new one?
Because nobody cares about the new Azrael-no matter how hard Didio and DC tries to shove him down our throats. At least JPV felt like a member of the Bat Family whereas Lane is barely acknowledged or mentioned in the Bat-books.
