    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.
