"That's what I always hate about revivals of really old franchises: the creators are always just a little bit too much in love with the subject matter. That's why everyone in the new Doctor Who spends all their time alternating between sucking the Doctor's balls and asking for more."

These days, the majority of the comic book audience is 40-somethings who are not necessarily interested in comic books as a medium or panel progression or sequential narrative. They are probably interested in Wolverine. There is a large nostalgic component in there and there's nothing wrong with it. But if those people then begin to influence the books themselves or increasingly the movies or the television series then they will want their story to refer to stories that they remember. It becomes very incestuous and over a few decades you get a very limited dwindling gene pool. And you get stories that have become weak through inbreeding.
"Have you ever read one of those Yu-Gi-Oh! fan fics where the author clearly has no friggin clue about story structure whatsoever, and they end up making me and the pharaoh long lost brothers, and then they completely forget to stick any card games into the plot?
