    the most recent Iron Fist springs to mind Marvel gave it to a shit writer who didn't care and all interest evaporated after the first issue
    New Darkhawk would also count, the book was fine but the writer clearly expected more time to flesh the main character and supporting cast out and he never shown up since

      It was so funny when Danny showed up recently to help fight in the Spider-Man Gang War crossover, other writers really don’t wanna use Iron Poochie at all, they’d rather use Danny even if he’s an unpowered shmuck fighting in his jeans.

            If only we could have young adult Kon and kid/teen Jon, it would've been so perfect for DC.

            To be fair, they're supposedly named after the same grandpa or some shit.
            We both know it's just an excuse to keep New 52 Wally, but it's not too unrealistic considering how many repeated names the kids get, like Iris West II, Jai West, Jonathan Kent II, etc.

            They should have had Clark raise Conner as his son like most people have wanted him to do for years. Then you have a young adult Superman and kid Superboy that both occupy different niches and everyone is happy. You even get rid of the need for superfluous characters like the dirty orphan twins no one asked for.

            If only we could have young adult Kon and kid/teen Jon, it would've been so perfect for DC.

          Don't quote me on this, but I think the idea was to get rid of most of the existing GLs, while introducing Jo as the new main GL.
          You can see some of this in Future State and Thorne's Green Lantern run, how Guy gets stranded in a planet and starts his own religion, Simon deciding to go full technology, Jessica becoming Yellow, John becoming the super special Emerald Knight, etc.

      They don't count, they were clearly not going to be the new permanent status quo, one became a villain and the others joined supporting cast

      A real failed example would be Cir-El, the last Supergirl DC introduced before reintroducing Kara Zor-El Post-Crisis

      Matrix and Kara (human) had their fans but Cir-El got so much backlash that she was retconned to be a human brainwashed and given powers by Brainiac or something

        She was supposed to be Clark and Lois's kid from the future but her design didn't look "Supergirl" at all unlike the other stand-ins

        see, i have a conspiracy about Cir-El - i think she wasn't actually supposed to replace Supergirl at all.

        if you read her whole run in Superman (10-ish issues, introduced at the end of Superman 10 Cent Adventure, shows up in Superman 190-200 but not 194 or 196) she's portrayed as being manipulated by the Futuresmiths THE ENTIRE TIME. in this run, she is also shown to have a homeless girl alter-ego all the way in 192.

        completely outside of that plot, she shows up in Action Comics 807-808, but this comes in the middle of her run in Superman, and instead... introduces her alter-ego as this horrid delinquent pickpocket with a sea urchin for hair. also interesting is it actually rips off the scene introducing her homeless girl alter-ego, so we know Superman 192 was written first.

        you know how supposedly Kara returning was one of Didio's first orders of business? Didio is, according to the DC wiki, ALREADY executive editor by Action Comics 806, but NOT (again, according to the DC wiki - the timeline is difficult to pin down) the executive editor when the Cir-El plotline started in Superman/10 Cent Adventure.

        you know what i think actually happened with Cir-El?

        she was always supposed to be erased with the Futuresmiths timeline, and somewhere in the confusion of transitioning executive editor, and poor communication between DC staff, the writers of Action Comics 806-808 misunderstood that (the level of misunderstanding of Cir-El in Action Comics is difficult to put into words) and then mistook Didio's push for bringing back Supergirl as "oh, he must mean Cir-El". she was going to be erased anyway, so it didn't need to be corrected.

        we know Didio was pushing for Kara to come back before Cir-El was erased because she comes back like literally 2-3 months in real time after Superman #200 (where Cir-El erases herself from all of time).

        i think now people mostly remember her Action Comics appearance and thought that was who Cir-El was.

          another possible angle is the Action Comics appearance was a deliberate attempt to make Cir-El a heel right before bringing Kara back, but I don't think that fits - especially because it has literally no effect on Cir-El in Superman, who remains a homeless orphan girl with glasses and (in her own words): "a box and a cat"

          she's still living in a cardboard box in the Superman comic even after Didio is executive editor, so i don't think it was an intentional move from editorial - i think the Action comics writers/editors just really screwed up, but the character had an expiration date anyway so they didn't need to worry about it.

      He did.
      Anyone that complains about replacement characters is a moron that doesn't read comics, because if you read comics you know that even the actual replacements (which are very rare) are a temporary gimmick that never stick.

      He was doing great until Johns couldn't let his specific childhood go.

        Nah even though it was him being a member berries b***h bringing Hal back was correct

        Though bringing Barry back fricked the flash comics forever

        History disagrees with you, anon. Even assassinating Hal and the entire Corps wasn’t enough to put Poochie Lantern over.

    If New Superman was just to be mangawank then why is it a commentary on the Chinese government's complete lack of ethics and not a Japanese teenage coming of age story like the overwhelming majority of manga is?

    It failed because it wa so tone deaf.

    In China Superman is known as 超人 (Chāorén), meaning that 超 should be the symbol.

    And why is he so ugly? Meaty nose, thick eye brows, slanted eyes, deformed face...the heroes in China look like [picrel].

      That's why it was good, it didn't pander to the Chinese by portraying them as perfect and faultless and exactly how they want to be pictured.

    As much as I love him, he was objectively a failed replacement.
    And now they're too stubborn to fix him now that they've brought him back from the dead just to shit on him constantly

      Ben is becoming unJUSTed right before our eyes though.

      >lost Peter’s memories and finally gave up on getting them back
      >resolved to just make new memories with his qtpie girlfriend and be his own man
      He’s in a better state than Peter currently is.

        Ben's been JUSTed so hard that he's become a completely different character. Getting his memories back was the closest thing to a motivation he had as Chasm and now he doesn't even have that anymore.
        nuJanine is bad too and shits all over the ending to Redemption

    >nig Wally still exists

    Based Wally is impervious to replacement though. They brought gayrry back and he flopped as the main Flash. Imagine if they brought Hal back and Kyle was still more popular and in all the main titles. That’s how badly gayrry got mogged by WallyGOD. Then they brought in Black Wally and he got mogged so hard they had to change his name.

    Wally = THE Flash
