4487Re: DC not appreciating what they acquired
- Nov 1, 2008The older, World War II era heroes being replaced by newer, different
versions in the present I don't have quite as much of a problem
with. . . many of them were used in World War II era stories (usually
by Roy Thomas) as who they were, but in the present it makes sense that
they'd often be replaced by younger, newer versions.
Captain Marvel and others from Fawcett were brought into the "present"
when DC reintroduced the Marvel family and such. . . yeah, maybe it was
around 30 years ago, but that's still part of the "resent" in
DC/comicbook time. Same thing applies to Blue Beetle, Question, and
the other Charlton heroes.
Maybe it's too much to ask of DC to not just kill a bunch of them off
or alter many of them so that they barely resemble who they once
were. . . there have been efforts to use them, but maybe many younger
fans just didn't have the same feelings for them some of us older fans

Unfortunately, I think just about all of the them? For a historical
perspective, DC bought Quality Comics in 1956. Amongst the characters
in that purchase were the Blackhawks, Doll Man, Lady Luck, Manhunter,
Midnight, Miss America (Joan Dale), Phantom Lady, Plastic Man, the Ray,
Uncle Sam, and Wildfire (Carol Vance Martin).
