@blkson: Ha ha please, as if original characters gain any ground in a world of comic fans deeply attach to establishment and continuity.
They can there are many new characters that have followings strong followings. Nurture them right and they will have their place. People are just to impatient and must have an instant hit and if they don't get that then they call it a failure. pfft
That would have to be one hell of a character and creative effort by the company
Not really it wouldn't take as much effort as you think.
Hmm, the way Marvel introduces new mutants in the X-men books could prove to be a great foundation for an all new prominent non white character.
Marvel spams new characters like crazy and barely gives them any attention. They pop them out like tick tacks and forgets them at a moment.
I think I would like to see an another human Lantern from DC, possibly on Earth 2.
I think there are too many copy characters as is. It's unimaginative and waters down the characters that are already there. Not to mention it hurts the chances of more distinct characters.
It's like to help solve problem A you're going to feed problem B which in turn feeds into the original problem A. Instead of actually working towards a solution you're propagating a bad cycle.
I've seen Flash get punched while going at incredible speeds and walk it off. Realistically Flash should be a couple of chunks of meat if Superman's fist and his face hit at such speeds...but comic book writer's don't understand science and all that.
When you have something like the speed force making you go beyond light speed and not only protecting you from breaking apart but not shattering when he hits something you kinda lose that science argument..
