And sort of resembles a humanoid form, rather than the Brood form? All things I dislike about said mutant Brood.
    Oh, yeah, fully agree. I'm just surprised to find I like Broo; I still think he shouldn't exist, because the idea suxxors for all the reasons you just said, but I actually like the character himself.
    'cept when he turns into actual Brood and goes on rampages. I don't like him then.

    But I don't like Marrina when she does that, either.

    Oh, so he has this other side to him? That would at least bring it CLOSER to what I expected out of Brood. For Marrina, it's not that I enjoy when she goes crazy - but considering the Plodex mentality - I get it. (The only real reason I don't like it, is because there's little character development of someone who's rampaging, which is exactly why I have never been into Hulk!)

    As irony would have it, however, I love Sabretooth, for the sheer fact he's so animalistic and ruthless...

    I myself am often surprised at tastes' little quirks.

    Broo went crazy once because of brain damage; it isn't a side to him, I'm afraid.

    I was going to ask the same thing, as I haven't heard much continuity complaints from DC fans (once they got over the reboot itself).

    I know the Robins' continuity was messed up: Tim Drake being referred to as a former Robin, yet he supposedly was always Red Robin and "never a Robin". The original Teen Titans were referred to in "Red Hood and The Outlaws", yet they supposedly never existed.

    You are correct about the Tim Drake thing. I am pretty sure you're accurate there. I don't recall about the Teen Titans, however?

    I have all the Red Hood books, and don't recall that. However, you could be right; i'm too lazy to pull out all my books and re-read them to check.

    This isn't the first time I've heard it mentioned.

    The FCBD for May revealing the post-Secret Wars team makes it look like it won't be a complete reboot:

    Nova, eh?



    I can go for that. Hope it's the one I'm reading, but I can go another one.

    I've just realised that the 'All-New, All-Different' are deliberately 'All-New yet somehow familiar'.

    I'm considering picking it up, but this line:

    is one of those that's meant to make me want to read it, but has the exact opposite effect.

    'Rewrite the rules' and everything before it usually means 'give you something completely alien to what you've read before, demand you love it just as much because it has the same name,' 'destroy childhoods'... 'nuff said, and 'world outside your window' means 'New York City' (where I've never even been, let alone had a window in). (Here, though, given the characters I'm looking at, it might mean diversifying the cast.)

    Still, I like Nova and Mark Waid can be a great writer.
