    On the one hand, I've been wanting to see Scott Lobdell get back into mainstream comics. So while I have no interest in any of these Post Crisis-Zero Hour-Infinite Crisis-Final Crisis-Flashpoint revamps; I'm glad he's getting steady work.

Even though I'm against a new Continuity for DC, and WILL voice this to DC themselves, I'll keep an open mind...for now. Mostly because of what RC said that Perez writes a low-powered Superman. Since I HATE how ludicrously powerful Superman is nowadays, I'm interested to see him powered down where he should be.

    But on the other hand, this will be the third try at a mainstream Superboy book, when their previous try didn't even make it past issue 10! I mean, what the hell?

    And on the final hand, dear lord, the costume is god-awful. Here I thought they couldn't do worse than the plains clothes look...

No kidding. And STILL black! And there's the dumb tattoo. *Shudders*

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?
