    Real world? Jeph Loeb is already taking severe knocks. Grant Morrison might get taken down a few pegs, but if that happens I suspect it's "all in the plan." Warren Ellis has set his place just right, where the brickbats mostly miss, and I suspect Bendis is solid for the future. If the Kick-Ass movie tanks, Millar's star will sink, and he's already got people looking for him to brickwall. At DC…dunno, as DiDio and Levitz are both rock solid where they are for some time yet.In terms of characters…well, Norman Osborn is being set up for a fall, obviously. At DC it's Batman who's heading for rough seas, again. As far as the *audience* goes, Wolverine's on his way to being burned right out, but even more than that I think people are finally, really done with the event-event-event thing. Who gives a damn anymore? It's pretty much destroyed Wildstorm for good….

    Well, one could argue that the previous comics-to-media/internet boom-bust took Stan Lee with it, but …I would think DiDio would fall before the whims of his corporate masters, but then, I am solidly convinced that Time Warner cares not a fig how well the comics themselves sell, so long as they control what the characters generate: Film revenues, merchandising money money monies, and the TPB contracts with the bookseller chains.

      If DiDio was going to get beheaded by Corporate, it would have happened earlier this year. They gave him a nice new contract instead.Ot also occurs to me that Frank Miller's lost the last vestige of being bulletproof with the failure of The Spirit.

        You funny.Sure, Frank's going to lose his funding for new projects because of a bomb.Were that the case, no one would hire Kevin Smith, John Rogers, Walter Bernstein, or others who suffered blights on their resumes … let alone the Uwe Bolls, Michael Bays, and Russ Meyers of the world …
