More Liberty Files-But Still No Sign of the Real JSA!

Post by tony ingram on Tue Sep 18, 2012 11:56 am

DC are releasing a follow up to the original Liberty Files, featuring alternative versions of the Golden Age characters set in their original era, despite having previously updated and deaged the 'main' versions of the JSA, apparently on the grounds that they wanted the Golden Age gone and anyway, readers are only interested in contemporary stories. I have to wonder, if they think this project will sell, why can't they just give us back the original JSA in their WWII prime?

Because it would scare away the young people, of course.

I would have thought if they couldcope with an Elseworlds set in the 40s, they could cope with a mainstream book set there. Come tothink of it, maybe Men of War would have lasted too, if it had been the original Sgt. Rock in his proper setting...

Wait, they rebooted Sgt. Rock? I didn't know that. The New 52 just got even stupider in my eyes.

I believe it's now the grandson of Sgt Rock (who, of course, originally died a single man in 1945 and so wouldn't have had any kids). Because naturally, young people wouldn't want to read about WWII.
