      I can understand perfectly why the concept on Infinity Inc would have a narrow appeal, especially when looked at today, but as with superteam books of any decade you have to put it into the context of when it was published and where the comics universes were at at that moment in time.

    No, the concept was fine: it was the execution. A daughter for Green Lantern with the same power set? It just seemed stupid to me, and none of the others felt 'right' either (I guess Northwind was okay) aside from the ones inherited from Levitz.

Honestly the book kinda reminded me of that 90's cartoon Tiny Toons where you have characters are like young protege versions of Looney Tunes characters. Everyone has a mentor/parent they're a derivative of.

    If the team had instead had someone like Strazewski's Jesse Quick, and Morrison's second-generation Merry the Gimmick Girl, I'd have been all over it.
