Marvel Now seems to be a response to DC's New 52. I for one, think it's the crappiest idea from the "House of Ideas" since AvX. Instead of keeping books with original numbering and swapping creative teams. They wipe the entire slate clean, change creative teams and entire concepts. Which, isn't at all like anything DC would have thought of.
Let's try copying something from DC that might actually seem original, or at the very least refreshing. How about we wipe the entire Max imprint clean and go in an entirely new direction! How about we do something similar to Vertigo. We have plenty of characters that lend themselves perfectly to mature writing. How about books for Hellstorm, Dr. Strange, Ghost Rider, Deathlok, Punisher, possibly some Golden Age rehashes. Give writers free range on some characters that can benefit from free range. Maybe if when you guys had Grant Morrison on roster, instead of saying "what can you do with X-Men?" you said "cut loose on Hellstorm!" Instead of having Bendis write every company crossover, what if you let him do his thing with Dr. Strange. Instead of following in DC's footsteps with New 52, you could do much better with following in their footsteps with Vertigo. Just a Thought.
