> I think it is a lack of understanding of whom these characters are and what the represent. There seems to be the inability, by the writers and editors at marvel, to write and produce characters that are more noble than they are. They seem to want to take the "hero" out of super-hero. I see the same problem at DC also. Not quite as bad but it is there.
> Another thing that comes to mind is the fans. Fans who buy books that they don't like. If we don't like the direction of a book we need to quit buying it. That is the only true measure of how we like a book. The sales. Poor sales will cause a change. Good sales won't.

Used to be my signature here..
"I don't think there's such a thing as a hero. It's a lovely idea and this isn't meant to be cynical, but I think people are just people who are capable of very good or very bad things.... " Mark Millar: Writer of Super Hero comic books

Folks argue that heroes need flaws. true. But they don't have to be as totally whacked out as the enemy.

Pull List: Fantastic Four: random limited series. But when it comes to traditional Big Two books, the FF is all you really need, even when the book isn't at it's best it's the World's Greatest Comic Magazine. Stan said so.
