@meatwadf: I wonder how some people even enjoy comics anymore. So much bitterness and angst. It's like the 90s comic characters have spewed over onto the Internet when they disappeared from comics.
To be fair, I started reading comics less than two years ago (though I've spent disgusting amounts of money to "catch up," so I've read a lot further back and read about a lot more). And honestly the cynicism is almost always justified. Making predictions about the future based on the past is not jumping the gun -- it's educated guessing. People do not need to have seen "a single panel" of a new event to make inferences about it if previous events have all consistently disappointed them.
