> > So why isn't the new Firestorm OK? Because Firestorm is a lesser character. As such, he should either be brought back in his original form to please his fans or else left in limbo. Creating a new one was pointless. Who was demanding it?
> So, since Blue Beetle is a minor character in DC, are you arguing that your favorite new book and character are pointless?
Of course not. The two situations are utterly distinct. The new Blue Beetle is a brand new character CONCEPT. Same name but absolutely everything else is brand new and quite original. Such isn't the case with the new Firestorm, who is simply the old Firestorm CONCEPT with brown skin.
DC said, "Let's have a black Firestorm!" - and that's all they gave us. This was pointless.
> I'm not a fan of discarding an established hero and replacing him with an African American, Hispanic or Asian using the same name, costume and powers.
Such is the case with the new Firestorm but absolutely isn't the case for the new Blue Beetle.
> ...A lot of the characters that would be good in the JLA seem even better suited for the JSA.
Interesting comment. Which characters do you have in mind?
