The perfect example of that was the new Aqualad (who'd gone missing in the Nu52). He was a well written, well developed character, with an interesting backstory, and the didn't suddenly kill off, or have an existing character suddenly go nuts/turn evil, just to introduce him.
If it werewell done, we wouldn't notice it at all. The fact that DC keeps on announcing this crap weeks before the actual announcement, is stupid twice. Its stupid once because it preempts there actual announcement & its stupid the second time by having an announcement. Stop trying to beg for praise & recognition DC, just do it & actually make it work.
As much as my dying idealistic side agrees with, the world weary old crabby in me knows this is just how it is. Their families gotta eat, too, and the sad truth is, if it moves a few more books to the lesser invested fringe fans, which it sometimes does, this will never go away.
I don't mind the hype and the change too much, but they better give a really good freakin' explanation for the gun, or I'll drop the book, too. As it stands, it looks out of place and WAY too 90's. And yet Liefeld is gone...go fig...
