Quote:They each tell different stories. Look at the Law and Order series. And I wouldn't say that any of those shows are critically acclaimed, which is part of the definition of success I assumed we were going for. Besides those television shows are dictated by several things that don't really fit comics. The JLA and the JSA are different titles. The JSA was built recently as a legacy title, while the JLA is billed as DC's big guns.
That's not quite true. There are often shared stories of someone with muliple personality syndrom or stockholm syndrom. THe victim who turns out not to be a victim at all. Terrorism. There's bound to be a lot more. Usually the twist comes from the characters themselves. Goron using his skills to work things out, Benson and Stabler bouncing ideas off each other and relating it all back to sex, Brisco bitching about everything. The only fundamental difference other than characters is that SVU starts out with something sexual or child related then works it's way into something else. So really Black Guardian is right on both accounts.
