Quote from: "The Article"
MW: The good new is, and I garauntee you this, when we’re on the other side of the CRISIS, those days are GONE. Just gone. We’re sick to death of heroes who are not heroes, we’re sick to death of darkness. Not that there’s no room, not that Batman should act like Adam West, but that won’t be the overall feeling. After all this stuff, after everything shakes down, we’re done with heroes being dicks. No more we screwed each other and now we must pay the consequences. No, we’re super-heroes and that’s what we do. Batman’s broken. Through no ONE person’s fault, but he’s a dick now. And we’ve been told we can fix that.


I pray Rao this is true.

If so, I'm about to become a very, very happy comic geek again.

Thanks for sharing that, SM.

I've been saying the same thing as Waid for a while now (but no one believed it). Infinite Crisis is poised to change the DCU as much as its predecessor. Like the saying goes, "it's always darkest before the dawn."

It's important to note that Mark Waid isn't the only one saying things like this--Dan Didio and Gail Simone are as well.

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.

But spare us the last almost 20 years...

The Sliver Age can't come back, it is only a time period from the late 1950's to late 1960's, so unless DC has invented a time machine, it will never happen. Hopefully, the Iron Age will finally come to an end, allowing a new age that is worth reading to be born.
