Patrick Zircher is suggesting Marvel do a line-wide reboot

Over on the Bendis board (via Newsarama's blog), the artist has been voicing his support for the idea to imitate DC's own reboot. And sadly, they probably will. Both majors have lost themselves to obsession with outdoing one another

While coming across this subject, I also stumbled across a comment on the Newsarama blog giving one more reason why DC's reboot should be avoided:
With our luck, we’d get a line-wide relaunch that’s exactly as bad as DC’s — the exact same people responsible for ruining the line to the point that it NEEDED to be relaunched would be put in charge of it, and the relaunch would keep all the things that drove me away from the line in the first place.

DC insists that Identity Crisis is still in continuity, even in the new rebooted reality. WHY? It’s one of the most offensively wrong-headed superhero comics ever created. It’d be like Marvel rebooting continuity but still keeping Civil War and Avengers Disassembled.
And that's one more reason why to stay away from their reboot. It'll also be reason aplenty to avoid a Marvel reboot, if they go ahead with such a move, because yes, there's every chance Civil War, Avengers Disassembled and several other awful crossovers will remain, and not only that, Mary Jane Watson will probably be obliterated altogether.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
