As I said in another thread. DC has been hitting us with constant big events one after the other for several years now. At the beginning it wasn’t so bad. We had Legends, Millennium, Invasion,…they were all little things.
Then we had the summer annual crossovers Armageddon, Eclipso, Bloodlines (with War of the Gods, Death of Superman Nightfall and Emerald Twilight thrown in between them) Now that may sound like a lot all added together, but it depended on how much you were reading. Also the Summer annual Crossovers didn’t often impact the rest of the titles outside of the participating annuals.
Then came Zero Hour! The first major Crisis since Crisis! and this is where the term “Crisis Level Event” was born.
After this we started seeing more of them.
Our Worlds At War
Jokers Last Laugh
Sinestro Corps War
Now Generation Zero and 5G
(and I’m probably forgetting a few a long the way!)
The point is, that it’s been like going to an amusement park with your friends and the guy in charge of the trip keeps dragging you at a break-neck pace through every maximum experience thrill ride after another!
Sometimes you need to stop and rest. take a breather. do a slow ride across the park in the air tram or something.
That’s what DC needs to do. it needs to let everyone relax.
