I think they need to clean house editorial wise. I think that is what most of the problems are at the moment. They tend to do things on the fly without a clear vision of what their goals are. That is another thing they need to improve on. If we do a reboot it needs to have a clear history put into place.
Just improve on the vision of the comics like Marvel is doing, along with revising the history in order to clear things up and replacing Didio and Harras with someone better would be good ideas to improve on DC than another reboot. I just think it would be better if DC did a reboot in form of an ongoing imprint (similar to Ultimate Marvel, though avoiding those problems that derailed them) than rebooting their main comics again. That way, the main comics would still be aimed at both longtime and new fans, while the comics under the reboot imprint would be aimed at new fans since I just feel that another reboot could alienate more longtime fans.

The reason Scooby Doo Apocalypse is cancelled is due to the executive at WB in charge of licensing the HB properties being thoroughly peeved at what DC have done with the characters. Don't expect any further HB titles or reinventions from DC as a result

I wonder what that means for Scooby-Doo, Where are You?. it's a straight adaptation of the property, not a re-imagining, so, will it be allowed to continue?

Why I never bought into rebirth because it wasn't their goal and it was just as fan ass kissing effort.
I was always a bit cynical about Rebirth as well. Like, I just didn't buy it. The initial Rebirth book was almost like Geoff actually doing press and saying, "Yeah, we're giving people what they actually want, now, sorry about the whole New 52 thing" and it's like, if they knew what the reading public actually wanted, why'd they spend so long going out of their way doing the exact opposite?

I think that would be fine since it uses the traditional version.

From the article, it seems like the problem the executives have is with how the characters deviate from their cartoon versions.

Since Where are You is basically the original in comic form, it'd be allowed to continue.

Just came up with an idea for a superhero. Would like constructive feedback.

Superhero Idea:

Name: Wonderer/The Wonderer, Nick Neat
Appearance: 6 Feet Tall, Costumer:
Abilities: Flight, Super Strength, Speed,
Agility, reflexes, jumping, laser beams out of
every part of body, telekenesis, teleportation,

make him belivable, how did he become the
wonderer.

Origin/Backstory: Nick Neat
The backstory is key to every character, you didn't give us that part.

As for the superpowers, he seems either pretty invincible or pretty unoriginal, possibly both. The laser thing is all that stands out from that bio.

I thought the Flintstones was faithful to the source material, just given a more adult approach. The Jetsons, however, was on the opposite end of the spectrum as it wasn't fun, just grim and bland. They pretty much sucked everything enjoyable about the cartoon out for a mediocre sci-fi adventure.

Which is weird, when we already saw how to give them edge through the John Kricfalusi short.

Tom King's statement on the Wal-Mart Superman controversy

"To me this is a metaphor for the best parts of love. Love comes with stress, agony, risk, vulnerability, and we shouldn't deny that stress, agony, risk, and vulnerability."

That's what i thought. Only cam eup with it in 2 minutes so haven;t thought about it. I agree with the superpowers needing to be more original and also have a good and unique backstory.

What do you think about the name?

... This is the same guy who implied that The Penguin had an actual sexual relationship with an actual penguin.

Flintstones was good, partly for getting there first and setting the standard though. Jetsons just felt like a sluggish drain that wasn't even trying to use the Jetson concept but was something else that got the name slapped on. Flintstones at least still felt like a Flintstones book even with such different style.

The Snagglepus book was just an interesting read in general, but the art felt so odd to me. Really, Snagglepus was basically just a Bojack Horseman comic that took itself seriously though.

The action cartoons and Space Ghost stuff was neat but hard to follow if you didn't have an encyclopedic knowledge of the characters. I'm not really sure who it was for in the end.

I can see why they dropped it, less for irritating the HB guy and more for just not being that good overall and the concept having run dry.

Eh, he's not wrong. It's just not something you want to read and see, generally. Particularly for Superman and Lois Lane. It probably could have just been explained in less graphic imagery and gotten the point across better.
