@nappystr8: Here's the thing though. The Golden Age Green Lantern and Flash? They stopped being popular because superheroes stopped being cool after World War II. That's why so many public domain characters were from the Golden Age. They were all forgotten so Hal Jordan and Barry Allen becoming Green Lantern and Flash was no big deal. And their successors? They were better (and still are) than those two in every way. Wally West is a funny guy and had used his speed in ways no speedster ever done before. Plus, his comics were just way better. Kyle Rayner? His constructs were relatable to the reader's imaginations since he created anime-like constructs and cartoon characters. As for John Stewart and Guy Gardner, a Green Lantern Corps was made in the Silver Age so having multiple Lanterns wasn't a big deal.

Those All New, All Different Marvel characters? They are all uninspired and do not improve on their respective predecessors at all and were simply made to piss off long-time fans. At least the Hulk was an interesting take on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde plus being the pure rage hero who destroys everything on sight was pretty much unheard of during the 1960s. Jane Foster, Riri, Amadeus Cho, and all these knock-offs are gonna go the way of Eric Masterson and young Tony Stark.

@NukeA6: Take a look at the top selling comics lists, http://www.diamondcomics.com/Home/1/1/3/597?articleID=182669 . The only Image book to outsell Iron Man in July was the Walking Dead, which for obvious reasons is not the average Image title. Image has less than 5 books total in the top 100. The clear indication is that new characters do not sell well, even when they are well written and critically beloved.

Hulk originally didn't sell well either (in fact, his first run ended at 6 issues). He is now one of Marvel's greatest legacy characters. A well done character will get the fame it deserves when done right. Riri and the rest of the diversity crowd do not have any lasting value which is why they're being piggybacked onto popular titles. Eventually, this will bite Marvel in the ass when it all comes crashing down.

@NukeA6: @rubear Image sells with known Authors, Or awesome story's.

Exactly which is how Marvel should sell their characters but they know nobody will buy their P.C. characters and they need to sabotage known titles with the hope it will somehow catch on. This was all the "trouble" I wanted to stir up.

Now let's all wait and see what else is Marvel is going to spiral downwards to.

@werst9: @doc-holiday: So a lesser company is willing to risk bad sales to sell a book but Marvel, a bigger company backed by Disney, can't make up their own characters because it might have bad sales even though they won't lose much compared to smaller publishers?

Why can Marvel just title it Invincible IronHeart instead of IronMan?

Because then no one would buy it.

So how do Image titles sell without using familiar names?

@gmanfromheck: Is the series ''I Hate Fairyland'' any good?

Looks awesome from what I saw.

If you don't mind it being really violent, yet it is.

No mention of Titans #1 at all? Just from Rebirth alone, it's looking far more interesting than Batgirl #1.

I know I will be all over Doom Patrol but I really hope Lost Boys doesn't regurgitate the whole movie over again and actually reads like a sequel.

Wonder Woman trailer was very good. Am so pumped for this. Finally, Wonder Woman gets her movie!

Yes, a really movie with real action and what seems like a good story :)

I am also interested because it's set during WW1, which is rare these days, almost everything involving some famous war is usually WW2; The X-men practically live off that war

Probably better off that way. Seems like they have plans for the Justice Society since they began during the age of WW2.
