"Another example: Infinite Crisis and Civil War. Don't get me wrong, Civil War was not very good, but at least it's a story, more or less. Infinite Crisis, on the other hand, is just a pointless, navel-gazing exercise in dragging things back because the average reader would rather have familiar mediocrity than forward momentum. And that's why you get the Groundhog Day that is the DCU. How many re-told origin stories have we gotten in the past year?"
