Quote:So... they show no originality? They invent new and original takes on existing characters, and you call that "butchering" them. How is that not originality? How is that laziness? Seems it would be easier to just blindly copy stuff that was already written. It's more work to invent these new depictions of existing characters. You criticize them for showing no originality, yet that seems to be just what you want from them. You criticize them for inventing new takes on characters, yet that contradicts your previous criticism. You criticize them both for showing and not showing originality. You claim "laziness" for taking the path that shows more effort.
You know we comic fans are afraid of new things. We complain that we want new things but we really don't. We want reinterpretations we like of the things we already liked before.
