    Anyone reading The Flash? Do you like/Dislike Robert Venditti & Brett Booth's run at the moment...?

    Im not asking for a breakdown with this question, just a general view on the books merits right now... \:\|

I don't read anything in the New 52. Too many unnecessary changes for me to pick any of the titles, including the Flash. For example: The New 52 Eobard Thawne AKA The Reverse Flash is now a rip off of Hunter Zolomon since his powers now work the same way as his. Just one of the many unnecessary changes. And the one title I was reading (Batgirl) made another unnecessary change when Gail Simone left so I dropped the book.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
