Name me the top super heroes and super teams we see today: Superman, Batman, Wonder woman, JLA, Thor, Captain America, Wolverine, Avengers, X-men, Fantastic 4 and so and so on.
These were the big names back then and they are still the big names today, and the question is: Will these still be the big names tomorrow?
Don't get me wrong, I love these names. But I want new names. I want new blood to enter the comic-verse and be given the same amount of respect, time, money, and franchise as these names above. I am not talking about replacements, I'm not talking about new characters with the same concept (the next new GL, or wonder girl, or x-men fringe group). I'm talking about completely new characters, with new backgrounds, in new cities, dealing with new problems. Different stories with completely different plots that doesn't rely on any per-established series.
The one thing I love about manga/anime is that the spot light changes as time goes on. Before it was all about sailor moon, dragon ball z, gunam, tenchi,etc. and today its all about one piece, Naruto, bleach, fairy tail, and tomorrow it will be whole new series. The older series aren't forgotten. They're revered and seen as classics and still referenced and loved.
I want this to happen with Western Comics. Instead of reboots, retcons, parallel universe, non-canons, lets just go full force and bring in a new ideas bring in new concepts. I don't wanna think 50 years from now I will be reading a new version of Hal Jordan, Batman's successor or see the x-men still fighting for mutant rights.
