Hasn't there ever been a new incarnation of something that you used to enjoy? Not all new versions are good, but some are quite good and enjoyable.
Same goes for He-Man. And Superman. And Mickey Mouse. They're no longer fresh. Even those these chracters can be drawn forever, they're from a bygone era. Now, the new Batman films have appealed to many, and that has happened with revived properties at times, no doubt about it, and that's why Hollywood jumps on making them. But I believe that is an exception to the rule, most rehashed properties are so drenched in the past, they simply lack newness.
I'm hopeful we'll see new properties that will wow the next generation. Trying to remake the wheel with old properties is a creative deathnail. Just my opinion. To tie this to the argument, I'd rather have these orientation or creative new issues hashed out in a new property, not past their prime properties that will only result in some angry old fans like ourselves who want things to stay status quo or finally get with the times.
