I understand (in principle) that Mattel doesn't wanna flood the market with action figures.  I know that they certainly don't want comic waves to step on the movie waves.  I get it.  In any given year, Hasbro/Marvel puts out quite a bit more comic accurate six inch product than Mattel/DC. 

But I'd still like to see a solid five Multiverse waves a year (every 2.5 months), plus whatever movie waves get made.  Don't know if that'll happen, but it would be nice.  And some exclusives.   

DC comics turned a corner this weekend.  You can feel the excitement from the execs, from the freelancers, and most importantly, the fans.  The enthusiasm is something like I've never seen from a comic company.  Metal is awesome.  I think it's spinoffs will be great too.  They talk about these artists "moving the needle", but DC has very stealthily installed some great writers on these books too.  Very smart.  Eight titles and counting.  More to come from some hints they dropped.  Doomsday Clock could be the start of a new era for DC, like the Crisis on Infinite Earths.  Rebirth ends in November.  I'm more than willing to go down the Metal/Doomday Clock rabbit hole.     

So when I say I want a Damage C&C or the Terrifics, or Silencer, I'm not exaggerating.  I'd punch a nun for Tom Strong.  It may take a while to get them into production, but I'm willing to wait.  Mix 'em in with the Rebirth figures.  'Cause I still want my Red Hood and the Outlaws and Titans.
