IMO, I think that they don't need to [hl=black]get rid of main characters[/hl] to sell comics. That just gets people mad - like with Chewie and Anakin and Mara in the SW profics. You need new dilemmas, intriguing problems, and really bad guys with humor, action, and all that comic good stuff. But [hl=black]taking away THE Batman? The BRUCE WAYNE? [/hl]Nuh-uh. That's just cheap.
