How long can it be before some toe-headed six year old in Boise get confused by two characters with the same name and DC rushes out to kill the redundant Wildcat, Sr.? I have always liked Ted and I love that fact that he is one of the few remaining golden age heroes still active in DC. I DO NOT want to see him replaced by a legacy.

Thats a pretty good point. I mean the most they ever did with Alan Scott was change his name to Sentinel. (and even that was for a short time). I think Wildcat is fine and he is too cool a character to needlessly kill off...imo. He is an original.

as always good reading to you all
