    The Terrifics! Yeah, yeah, it's a rip off of Marvel's FF. And maybe DC already dropped the ball with The Impossibles (from Future Quest). It does NOT mean this team/title isn't anticipated or doesn't sound interesting. The twist, there has to be one, on the "copied" premise could be fun! And preview art has been released for your speculation and appreciation...

I've got these books on my pull list:
The Terrifics
The New Challengers
Immortal Men
The Unexpected

The first two are obviously aimed at filling the Fantastic Four vacuum. That's precisely why I'm buying them. I want to see if the FF magic can be recaptured at another comics company.

The next two DC books are probably also aimed at stealing Marvel's thunder. Maybe they're aimed at the essence of the X-Men and the original Defenders? I don't know, but I'm curious enough to try them out.

Sideways is clearly aimed at stealing Marvel's Spider-Man thunder. I'm cool with that because I think Marvel deserves every bit of this. Marvel has been poisoning their own well for nearly 20 years, basically competing with their own history and trying to kill it. Now Marvel, on top of that self-imposed and highly stupid competition, can also compete head-on with DC.
