    Default DC comics plans to make huge mistake

    This will really only matter to RK probably but, DC is planning to end all their comics and restart everything from the beginning. 75 years of history are about to be undone as DC plans to launch new younger and hipper versions of all its characters. Furthermore there's currently a legal dispute as to wether or not they will be able to continue to use Superman in their books and media. Fun times.

    The problemis that will alienate their core fanbase. Marvel has always been the grittier of the big two. Fans go to DC mostly for its Golden Age feel.

    Well Jim Lee is one of the heads of the new books, so I guess it'll be like Heroes Reborn all over again... guess they need to go ahead and give Liefield a book.

    yes and he's still profitable. It's just that the person who owns him isn't interested in ever opportunity that comes his way. We're unlikely to see any spawn movie anytime soon.

    I'm going to wait it out and hope that saner minds prevail.

    Oh more on it... they've now said that everything that has happened in the DC universe still happened... but the characters are all younger and the 75 years of DC history actually happened over the course of about two months.

    I actually found away to keep their characters young without having to do a reboot or something every 10 years. Batman's age is one of their main problem I think DC thinks he's over 40. I say he's 38 if he stated being batman at age 20 and every 16 years in our world equals 1 year in the DCU.
    They could get around their issues by making certain characters start their careers younger.

    I actually LIKE it when the characters age semi naturally. It's one of the reasons I'd like to read Savage Dragon. Eric Larsen started the comic and had everyone progress naturally.. characters grew old, married, has kids, died off, and he never rebooted anything, just kept it going.

    But DC can't replace certain characters and keep sales up.
