"I always bring up Afterlife with Archie, wherein they told a different kind of story, they approached it from a different angle, but it was still Archie and Reggie and Betty and Veronica and all the characters you knew. It's just that they were tweaked a little for the story being told.

So with the Scooby Doo stuff, I'm not looking to tell people, "I know Scooby better than anybody else — I'll just change everything!" No. I'm trying to approach the characters by keeping as much of who they are as is possible within the limits of the story.

I'm not looking to do a complete revamp of Scooby Doo. I don't think there's any reason to.

Forget DC Rebirth, the Marvel Now 2: Electric Boogaloo announcement, or the plot development in Spencer's Captain America. HERE'S THE MAJOR BOOK OF THE WEEK: Scooby Apocalypse!

DAREDEVIL #350 is the end of a story by J.M. DeMatteis that is an important but underrated part of Daredevil's history. Foggy finds out Matt is Daredevil (and is furious) and it is the end of the "Jack Batlin" era. Also, Matt's teacher Stick returns to give Matt a lesson in vigilante morality.

Last week, I speculated that some superheroes might like "the rush and the crunch" of violence more than they would like to admit. After the cut is some speculation about the MCU Captain America, the MCU Spider-Man, and some pages from the mini-series THE LIFE AND TIMES OF SAVIOR 28. (I'm not sure this qualifies as NS or not, since it is a bit general.)

"What's so wonderful about these characters, these great iconic characters like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, is that there's something essential about all three of them. You can bend them, you can twist them, you can do all kinds of things to them -- come up with different histories, come up with parallel universes -- but there's some inherent appeal about them that no matter what clothes you put on them, no matter where you take them, the heart and soul remains the same." - J.M. DeMatteis

"When we were originally developing the character, instead of making her the daughter of Hippolyta and blessed by Hera, we were going to make her the daughter of Zeus. She would actually be the daughter of a god! Then the next day, the next day after our meeting, that was the new version of the character in the comics! (laughs) Damn you, Brian Azzarello!" - Bruce Timm

'Back in the old days of “Batman: The Animated Series,” several times I tried to do “Batman as a vampire” stories, and every time got shot down. The world was not ready for it. This was in pre-Buffy days. Vampires were not allowed on children’s television back then. I remembered that and thought "Batman as a vampire would be kind of cool."' - Bruce Timm

'So I was thinking, a different version of the Justice League, what do you do that’s different? And around that same time, DC Comics was doing the New 52 reboot and when I first heard about that I thought, wow, that’s really intriguing, I wonder what they’re going to do with the characters. That made me start to think about the silver age versions of The Flash and Green Lantern, and how when they brought them back they kept the name and the gimmick of the golden age versions of those characters and threw everything else out. They had new costumes, their powers worked differently, they had new alter egos, and I thought that was the most successful reboots in the history of comics and I thought wouldn’t it be exciting if they did that with the entire line of DC Comics. I knew they weren’t going to do that because you can’t, that’s just too huge a financial gamble. It made me start thinking though, if I was going to “reimagine Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman,” the three biggest, most important characters in the DC Universe, what would they be?' - Bruce Timm

"It becomes hard to do something fresh and new – even with action sequences; every story you tell, Batman’s gotta do something, Superman’s gotta do something, and you go, well what hasn’t he done already? We’ve done hundreds of hours of content with these characters! So with this Gods and Monsters version of it, it does open up all kinds of new possibilities, and not just for Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, but for all these other DC characters. It’s kicking over the table, coming up with different ideas for the characters." - Bruce Timm

"They're J.M. DeMatteis and my Blue Beetle and Booster Gold. Our Blue Beetle never got shot in the head. He never split from Booster Gold. The last memories these two clowns have is that Max was mad at them. Then they woke up in a refrigerator on Takron-Galtos. It's our Justice League." - Keith Giffen

We've wondered about Jean Grey's telepathic ethics. So here's another example of her using her telepathy in a way that is ethically questionable.

Spectacular Spider-Man #197, 198 and the first few pages of #199 are a team-up of Spider-Man and the original X-Men. Some time ago, Professor Aaron Power wanted Charles Xavier to restore his son, Matthew. Things did not go well.

'We're exploring a universe that hasn't been explored yet — the "Bwa-Ha-Ha" universe or whatever. And DC was amenable. So we said, let's do it!' - Keith Giffen

Newsarama: Keith, your book is continuing into June, along with a lot more books with a bit more humor in them. With the success of the Harley Quinn book, and the extra attention Justice League 3000 has been getting, I think people are figuring out that there's room in the comic book industry for books that don't take things too seriously.

Keith Giffen: I've been saying that for years! I've been out there all alone saying it's OK to laugh and have a little bit of fun. With Justice League 3000, we have an obvious sense of humor.
