So Hulk is now back to #1. With the exception of a few titles such as Detective Comics and Fantastic Four, it seems like the new fad is to startover every title. Am I too old school, or does anyone else miss when comics continued their numbering system? It used to be a sign of prestige when your title was on #400, #500, etc... I don't care about the continuity, or what events happened to cause the new numbers. Hulk is Hulk. Flash is Flash. Superman is Superman. Captain America is Captain America. Different characters, different timelines, but they're all based on the same core mythos. It's bad enough that crossover events now have to spawn ten million mini-series, but was it really that bad showing the legend of your hero by just keeping with the numeral system that existed back in the day of Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Bob Kane, etc? Is it basically a necessary business model to have to "reboot" your title's number system? Avengers is now a super hot seller, would it have been the same if not for the reboot of New Avengers? I would have read "Avengers Disassembled," peed in my pants, and made sure I checked out some of the spin-offs regardless of what # the title was on, but would everyone?
