I've never been a real Grant Morrison supporter, I thought his JLA run was overblown and didn't like his run on X-Men at all. Yet this quote by him in an interview at Newsarama just made me go wow:
The current vogue in superhero comics, post- Hush is for the 'definitive' take, which tends to manifest itself as creators playing it safe by cherry-picking and re-packaging all the best and most popular elements of an already successful feature. It's a commercial strip-mining kind of approach to a given property that seems to make a lot of sense until you realize it can really only work once before you find yourself in the awful position of having to make up stuff again. Seven Soldiers is an attempt to clear some new ground and make stories for people who want something a little different from 'greatest hits' reworkings of books they've already read.
This was a problem I myself had been seeing in superhero comics for a long time, and is likely why I've lost so much interest in the majority of it. Yet to see it written so clearly and concisely by someone in the industry is great. It gives me hope that things can get better, and makes me want to throw my support behind Morrison's next project. Which is a very interesting sounding new take on the 7 Soldiers of Victory.
