DC = Officially, utterly devoid of new ideas.

Postby Asger » Tue Jun 18, 2013 5:49 am

This is just sad

So, DC in a poor attempt to draw people in, are now ripping off two of their old ideas. Legion of Superheroes (A much more popular series that's been forced to take a flagpole up the ass as of late) and DC One Million (Visiting the descendants of the Justice League.) The difference between this and One Million is that 'Million' was original, written by someone who knows how to write, and most importantly: Not shit.

I thought the point of this stupid reboot was to bring in new ideas, and now the chimps that run DC are just reusing all the same ideas. Coming soon, Kingdom Come 2: Electric Boogaloo.

I think devoid is to strong, they do have some new idea like JL Dark, Demon Knights, The Movement, Green Team, Threshold, superboy's not being superman/lex clone. The problem is that some of the new ideas aren't good. Like how convoluted superboy's backstory is.

Also wouldn't it just be a copy of 1 million? I mean they already have a Legion of superheroes running.

What happened to having anything about The Sword of Superman, by chance?

It's a reference to this really weird silver age story where Superman got a sword that was apparently destined for him, and it would have made him god if he used it, and blah blah blah. Nothing worth remembering...

So 3000 isn't about descendents. There Clones or resurrections, it hasn't been made clear. It being done by a future version of cadmus to bring back heroes. JL3000 came out wrong without the life experience that helped shaped and defined them. I think one of the struggles of the comic is trying to get the new league to work like they normally did.

How much like 1 million is that like?

Still tears in the same concept of the Justice League IN THE FUTUUUUURE. The fact that it's being treated as a big new idea just makes it worse.

And man those new designs are bad.

Thats kind of generalized though. Going by that pretty much everything is in the same veins as other things that came before it. It's a new spin on an old idea.

Yeah not really a fan of wonder woman, supes, and batman. Kind of like GL's look. Bit on the fence with Flash.
That said they do look a bit different in the comic then in the concept art.
