Ah, don't worry. Quesada is there to prove you wrong.
I admit, I'm a bit tickled by the whole meta thing, because I am big into the whole mythology business. I mean, I can see why Marvel has a history of appealing to a wider audience than DC, because of the straight humanity that is at the basis of their flagship characters - but there is something to be said about the mythic-status associated with DC, in particular with its Big Three. The thing is, I think DC should do even MORE with it. One of my dreams right now is to do a solo series with Firestorm, taking him beyond Earth-bound heroics and doing something grand and cosmological with him. Because that dude is MADE for that kind of shit.
Of course, my dreams also include writing Robin post-Cowl, Blue Beetle back-ups, and something with the All-New Atom. Might be tricky, all that.
