Legacy

Is it just me or are "Legacy Characters" popping up more and more recently? A legacy character is a character that takes up the mantel of a previously more known character. In the past few years we've had a new Question, Dick Grayson is the new Batman, we are on are Third Blue Beetle, second Judomaster, third Batgirl, Fifth Robin, second Vulture, second Rhino, we've had about three Wonder Women, and somewhere around FOUR or FIVE Flashes at the same time. There are others I missed but the point I think is clear. I understand the need for change but it's like they are admitting these new characters aren't good enough on there own so they shoe horn them into more popular character. Your feelings on these individual characters notwithstanding I can't be the only one irritated by it.
