As a rule, I’ve always been a bigger fan of Marvel’s Heroes than of DC’s Heroes, which is not to say that I don’t like DC heroes, I just gravitated towards Marvel’s heroes. I’m sure there is a reason for that, but I’m not going to go into it here. That’s not what this post is about.

Still, I do have extensive runs (knowledge and fondness) of many DC titles and characters, so I found this article in the New York Times interesting.

Since I haven’t followed the DC heroes as much in recent years as I have in years past, I’m just going to post the link, and present the information without comment, except to say that what DC is proposing is an interesting idea, and merely the fact that it is an interesting idea, makes it worth the effort.

Will DC succeed in re-tooling their characters? Well, I for one, certainly hope that they do — not — I might add, because I think that their characters are tired, or need re-tooling, but because I’m interested in seeing in what they will do, and yes, this is a new Millennium, and thus a new breed of readership, so perhaps re-tooling is necessary.

Is this to become DC’s Ultimate universe? Who knows? Will I sign on for the ride? I don’t know that as yet either, but I am considering it.
