They've Gone And Done It

For those of you that haven't heard, Marvel Comics has announced that they're going to take a page out of DC's playbook and do a reboot of not only their Ultimate line, but also the main Marvel Universe. I think this is a good thing. As I stated on Episode 2 of The Hammer Podcasts!, there's just too much continuity for Marvel's sliding time scale to contain. I can only hope that they also learn from DC's mistakes and reboot everything from the ground up and don't leave a few titles to stretch over the reboot. In other words, they need a John Byrne's Man of Steel or George Perez's Wonder Woman style of reboot, and not whatever happened with Batman or Green Lantern after the Crisis.

Not that my opinion really matters to them, as I haven't bought a new Marvel comic in at least a decade. Still, I wish them well as I peruse their back issues, but more on that next week.
