Maybe my problem is that Marvel has moved on. Interesting. I have an affinity for their characters as do many others. However, Spider-man is their anchor and I'm not sure I can ever forgive them for OMD. X-Men have grown up as have The Avengers. I think I've outgrown the X-Men.

DC does need more talent. Wizard's Top Ten artists/writers are loaded with Marvel. Maybe JMS will help. I will say that GL, JSA and Detective Comics are books I find fun. Rogue's Revenge is cool and the new Flash I bet will be fun. Final Crisis is my favorite book right now.

Guess it's just opinions. Marvel maybe got a little stale to me and Spider-man just killed it. But there's probably people who feel the reverse.

it's in interview with Quesada and Jemas about the early years of the ultimate line. its on comic book resources as a two part interview:

Ultimate Bill Jemas & Joe Quesada, Part's I & II

but dude, what happened with alot of characters went wrong. but they did crazy in the 80s too.
