> Maybe, but any attacks against old-school superheroics on these boards are outnumbered a thousand to one by histrionics about how comics are not exactly like they were in 1983, and how the world most likely will go under because of that fact.

And if anyone needs a solid example of what histrionics are, well, there you go!

I think that's the problem right there - people writing "attacks" against any type of comic will get that kind of angry knee-jerk reply from its defenders. Rational intelligent discussion about various aspects of the comics will go a lot further than attacks. I'd be much happier with posts like the one starting this thread and fewer "attacks against old-school superheroics" (or attacks on new-school whatever you want to call it).

I don't know if you're arguing with me here...but I agree with you.
