The end of Tiny Titans? Awww no Titans....

And whilst I was pleased to hear that Franco and Baltazar are producing a new series "Superman Family Adventures", I've also just found out that the reason they have the free time to do so is the end of "Tiny Titans" which will end with issue 50 in March 2012.

In this awesome 50th issue, questions are answered! Mysteries are solved! The Tiny Titans may be one step closer to becoming Super Heroes! This issue may change your life! Plus, it's highly recommended by Franco's mom!

Over on Facebook, Art has said that he and Franco are not ending it by choice, so I suspect the sales figures just can't cut it any more.

Say what you like about Dan DiDio, I think he's been championing this one, and wouldn't have let it close unless he had to.

A shame, it's a been a fun, if weird, award winning title, for four years now.

What would a literal context be? Because reinforcing its use the other way seems just as bad, if not worse.

I feel like that's jumping a step in the linguistic drift of the word. At one time, it was a pejorative for those with physical disabilities, likening them to wounded or invalid animals. Recent generations have taken to use the term for things seen as "weak in character/weak in attitude," but would not think to use it against someone with a disability, literally not seeing a connection in definition.

So, I'm really not seeing where we need to protect usage of "lame" because every context I've seen it censored or warned against on this comm has been someone using it as an adjective of emotive not physical characteristic.
