  1. Even I made the mistake that DC had finally bought Milestone’s assets as part of the latest attempt to use them, and was soundly corrected with authority by Mr. Davis. My assumption was that the desire to jump back into the pool was so great, that some change must have taken place for them to decide it was to their benefit to do so.

    Not counting the fact that it was all but impossible for DC to have a panel at a convention without someone asking when they were going to bring back Milestone, a question that always gets a hearty round of applause.

    As the latest reboot came and, sadly, went, I tabled the theory that DC’s only real interest was in Static, having no problem believing that to some at DC, he was the only character with any recognition, and as such, any cache. Even that proved untrue as the New 52 title sputtered and died (theories vary, but I’ve always thought it was simply Too Many Cooks) and has not been seen since.

    But indeed, the lack of interest to make the characters work makes more sense once you realize they DON’T own the characters. If they’d bought them, they’d be trying something new every few months; instead, they gave it a bash, and gave up, much lik they did with their Red Circle and THUNDER Agents books.

    And once again, the part of the company that has done the most and the best with the characters is the animation division. Icon and Rocket on Young Justice was one of the most pleasant surprises in a long time.

    Need I mention that Dwayne did better and more entertaining work with the Justice League and Static on TV than he was ever allowed to do in the comics, and to a far larger audience?
