    I'd be willing to do that if the publisher was either Image or DC, preferably Image.

    As for the reboot, I'm reading most of the bat titles, along with (off and on):

    Legion of Super Heroes
    Legion Lost
    Suicide Squad
    Aquaman
    Wonder Woman
    Animal Man
    Voodoo

    As well as a couple others.

    I've been re-reading the Ed Brubaker Captain America run. That is some great storytelling. His Daredevil run was also first-rate.

    Transformers (Marvel) was the comic I grew up with, so when Regeneration One got announced I nearly shat myself!
    More Than Meets the Eye and Robots in Disguise are awesome too. Some seriously creepy stuff going on in RID. I see a lot of dudes getting killed in that in the future...

    god-damn political correctness in superheros is getting fucking annoying

    Miles Morales has to be half-black and half-Latino because supposedly non-Latino-white-people are the minority in NYC

    the newest version of Alan Scott is gay, despite the previous version getting married twice and fathering 2 children with his first wife

    Kyle Rayner and Jaime Reyes are Hispanic because all the illegal immigrants in USA are coming from "Latin America"

    Black Vulcan, Black Lightning, Black Panther, Static, John Stewart, and all the other black hero characters in superhero comics were made as a direct result of the NAACP bitching about all the superheros being white

    and now, because of the whole "war on terror" thing...
    ...New Green Lantern is a Muslim with his right forearm tattooed in Arabic lettering...

    Gee, it sure does suck that superheroes aren't just white guys anymore, and actually look like the rest of the country.:rolleyes:

    i have no problem with a Middle-Eastern/Arabic/Muslim character having superpowers, (they've done it alot for villain characters) and i have no problem with a Middle-Eastern/Arabic/Muslim character being a hero character in a superhero comic
    Marvel's already done it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dust_(comics)
    but to make the newest Middle-Easter/Arabic/Muslim hero character a freaking Green Lantern, that's just nothing more than a fucking publicity stunt, and to make the forearm tattoo, written in Arabic lettering, visible while wearing the superhero suit with a god-damned mask over his fucking face, that's just a badly done publicity stunt and pandering to Muslims/Middle-Eastern people,
    if some sort of minority rights group demanded a Muslim/middle-eastern hero character in DC's superhero comics, they could have at least made a unique origin story instead of making the Muslim guy another fucking green lantern, and the hero character having an Arabic lettering tattoo visible while wearing a face mask is totally pandering to minority rights groups and still looks as-stupid-as hell whether or not it's a Green Lantern

    YOU'RE OVERREACTING.

    And you don't come off as a white supremacist at all. More of a garden variety bigot.

    but it wasn't just merely a Arab/Muslim Green Lantern
    they've had a black guy be a Green Lantern
    John Stewart clearly unambiguously created to pander to the black comunity and convince black people to read comics
    and Kyle Rayner is Hispanic with one of his earliest Rayner stories involving Wally West being racist against Hispanic/Latino people

    I'm not seeing a problem with the new Green Lantern, but what's with the gun?
