Default Bring back Adventure Comics

No, not starring Superboy. Cast a couple of new characters in it as a teamup.

Barry and Hal?

But this might be better.

Wally and Alan starring in Adventure Comics.

That would give you cross-pollination from JSA.

Before the New52 Adventure comics was selling like hotcakes with Superboy and LoSH backups. It's the reason they both had series that spun out of it. Brining it back just to give it to somebody else is stupid when there's not an actual Superboy title currently on the stands. And no, Super Sons doesn't count as a Robin comic or a Superboy comic.

And how many ****ing threads are you gonna start in a week dude? You've got 11 now on page one...

It doesn't matter how they did it in the 1960s. It's been pretty well established that Superboy can't carry an ongoing in today's market. Hal and Barry probably can, or Wally and Alan.

Talk smack all you want. This comic wasn't cancelled after 5 or 6 issues.



And Superboy's classic series in the 90's lasted over one hundred issues well into the year 2002. I'm not talking about the 60's. The clone's always been popular. Only reason I bothered with Teen Titans was because Superboy was involved. Originally, that was the only reason I got into LoSH before becoming a big fan. I'd wager he's more popular than Supergirl despite her constantly getting a bigger push. The Kara Zor El version [aka the *main* version, not Matrix or one of the others] has only appeared in about one thousand more comics than Conner Kent, and her first appearance was in '59. She had a 35 year head start. Superboy has been sold in 1,396 comics since '94. Kara's only been sold in 2,283 comics since '59. 23 years comparing to 58 years.
