I'm glad the series will apparently be more grounded. During Johns' run on Green Lantern, the man never seemed to be able to stop going from one blockbuster event to the next without taking a breather. Even Venditti got stuck in that formula to some extent. It's not that I didn't enjoy a lot of what Johns' did (or Venditti), it's just that he didn't believe in taking a break and tell more grounded stories. Even Venditti failed to tell more grounded stories when he told "filler" stories that served to just "be there" before he started his next big event. So Grant Morrison's plans are going to be SUCH a nice breath of fresh air.

I'm definitely going to be picking this up because I know Grant Morrison can deliver on great stories. \^_\^

Your thoughts?

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
