So let me see if I understand this

Dick Grayson: Finally free from Tim Seeley, and Sam Humphries is about to begin his run, which is called “The Untouchable”, and seems to celebrate Dick’s history, even going back to his time as a Robin.

Wally West: Joshua Williamson grew up with Wally as his Flash, he loved Bart because he was the same age as Bart, and he likes Jenni, Max, Jai, and Irey, and Flash War, despite the title, is more about Wally and Barry having a disagreement, which we already know they will work through by the end of the story, effectively subverting the tired “heroes vs heroes” tropes, because Williamson seems genuinely interested in appealing to fans of Barry and Wally.

Peter Parker: Dan Slott is an egomaniac who dominates Comic Book Resources and commands a community of bullies, seems to actively despise Peter Parker to the point of wanting to punish him for “sins” that were never his fault, while Doctor Octopus is something more sympathetic and less “shallow”, and while he’s the foremost writer of Spider-Man since One More Day, he’s not alone in actively being repulsed by Peter and Mary Jane’s marriage, to the point that hatred of the marriage seems to be synonymous with hating Mary Jane herself.

If people ask why I think DC Rebirth is good and Marvel Legacy is going to completely fall flat on its face, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The traditional way of writing about Deaf people is to focus on the fact of their condition- that they do not hear- and to interpret all other aspects of their lives as consequences of this fact… In contrast of the long history of writings that treat them as medical cases, or as people with “disabilities”, who “compensate” for the deafness by using sign language, we want to portray the lives they live, their art and performances, their everyday talk, their shared myths, and the lessons they teach one another. We have always felt that the attention given to the physical condition of not hearing has obscured far more interesting facets of Deaf people’s lives.
