I'm tired of Capeshits. People have all rights to love them, but they have gone from myths ('cause that's what they are, they were supposed to be heroic figures in glorifying stories, even the anti-heroic ones) but now they are nothing but brands. You can see it by the fact that it's not a mantle anymore, it's a symbol you slap onto whatever ideology you wish, you give it a name and keep calling them the same name. Thor, Iron Man, Green Lantern. A mask isn't just a brand, because readers can see the man or the woman behind it. If you can so easily interchange the people behind the masks, then all they are doing is filling a slot until they become old or unlikeable or the brand isn't selling anymore. Even then if you have only old stuff to work with, you simply reboot and short-term memory of the public accepts whatever you sell them.
I know there have been great stories even after reboots.
But I feel these brands are already rotting behind the fabric and this makes me sad.
I wish for capeshit to be destroyed and burned to ground and those ashes scattered in the wind not because I hate it, but because I wish for new types of capeshit to come up. New actual comic hero universes. I stumbled recently upon Invincible, read it all, and felt at least some kind of fresh air. It clearly sparks from the same kind of capeshit, but at least it's not the same icons crossing 80 years or so of american history to the point you can't even pretend there's suspension of disbelief.
I really wish Marvel and DC closed all comic book series they have open right now, and created a fully new universe, with no attempted ripoffs of previous characters. It's obvious some will be in some way similar to the old legends, but it's all in how you make them appear. If you consider Spiderman and Batman, they have similar origin stories, and themes, but they are iconic each in his own way.
I wish for specific, iconic stories told ONCE, then expanded for some time. No reboots.
