Lyko quit CV years ago.
There was just seven of `em. Not a problem.
Also: Offsprings dilemma about wanting to be a grittier crimefighter isn`t a bad move actually, but personally I didn`t like it. But it`s not something I think makes the story worse, unlike the Strawwoman-Micheline.
You reminded me by making this list and apparently mentioning me in your comment or something. I`d forgotten about the comic.
Well, now that you accidentally reminded me of this series, I finally read the Offspring-issue.
The girlfriend-father-son drama Waid wrote was boring and irritating. Using Micheline as an inconsiderately acting straw-woman was trite. I don`t like the mean delivery of "Nobody likes fun comics and that sucks."-statement, especially when it`s used to heckle people who don`t like fun comics. Waid coulda made a reasonable argument, and this is what he gave the reader.
Also, I wanted this to be the silly transformations and adventures from Offspring, drawn by Quitely, but it wasn`t. The silly fun stuff was just a spice in an otherwise uninteresting plot. Yeah I didn`t like the superhero conflict either. Except for the bit about the antagonists just wanting to leave earth and not do anything bad. Except for destroying the Sphinx. I didn`t like that.
I do like that Offspring emulates his fathers humor and personality, since most of DCs superheroes sidekicks used to just be younger copies of the adults the fought aside with. I feel something interesting coulda been said about that. Maybe someone already has, in some indiecomic perhaps, and I just haven`t found it.
If alot of persons write the same sorta thing, for example samurai stories set in to the old west, a new genre is born.
This could be a literary genre.
Oh sorry, didn`t read.
Yeah yeah I know. But I already have a lamp.
Well. If I need to use both of my hands for something else, it`s best to have a third eye to illuminate me trough the darkness.
Sabertooths right hands claws are on a slightly different position, than Wolverines in the original.
