My tapered interest in superhero comics has turned into complete disinterest in the genre. I don't know... I'm just disappointed with it now. There was something in Nightcrawler's return announcement that made me realize this whole thing is futile, and I don't want to invest further time or money into it. I think it has to do with the fact that superhero stories never end. For the most part they never do. Mark Waid said it before in an interview that you can call these characters modern myths because their stories don't end. He's right. There is no finality, no real consequences of the actions had in these stories, and therefore hardly any reason for me to keep pouring money into Batman, Superman, or X-Men and Captain America. I mean, look what happened to Batwoman. That is the best recent example of DC's blatant refusal to let their characters evolve. A great example of why I'm disappointed by the state of the industry today.
Another big reason that I'm leaving is an old complaint of mine, I'm sick of reading the same handful of characters. DC is a worse offender of this than Marvel. How many new comics released recently have starred Batman, Superman or Wonder Woman? I was sad when they announced the cancellation of Static, Blue Beetle and most of all Sword of Sorcery, which had so much potential. Similarly, in Marvel, the cancellation of Journey into Mystery starring Sif saddened me. In my opinion, there is no reason for a Justice League 3000 comic.
DChyped up Cyborg for the longest, and are in fact still hyping him up, but they they aren't doing anything with him. I'm tired of the promise, I want delivery. Also, Miles Morales seems to have his own story cut off in order to join the main universe. So far it's still rumors, but that really disappointed me, since he was getting some much needed characterization for his kind of character, and he just got a girlfriend, and their relationship hasn't really been explored yet.
Anyway, before I start ranting, let me end here. I'm going to focus on other things in life, and enjoy other forms of entertainment from now on. And I will read other genres of comics from time to time. Anyway, I want to know all of your opinions,whether you agree with me, or think I'm stupid or whatever. I've already come here less frequently, but I'll drop by periodically to see what's going on with the community.
