What a lame list.

And, whoever thought that the MOTU mini-comic followed the cartoon canon should probably do a google search before hand. The Pre-Filmation Mini-Comics are like the Mirage to Filmation's Fred Wolf in difference and contrast.

RUFF AND REDDY. Never heard of.
WONDER TWINS. Don't care.
THE JETSONS. From the description it seems fine, just makes it a little darker but not "CHILDHOOD DESTRUCTION!" dark.
STARFIRE. I've heard of this before and I don't really care, from what I understand it's technically a more accurate depiction of Starfire than the syntax-error-speak-moe-girl from the cartoon, even if it is kind of insulting. If it "destroys" your childhood to read that, I'm sorry you didn't realise your childhood cartoon was a weirdly loose adaptation, for anyone familiar with her outside of the cartoon it's just more insulting than "destructive".
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: CITYFALL. Similar to the Starfire one, sorry if you never knew there was more to this than terrible comedy and repeated cartoon clichés, but it's not that shocking in the broader context.
SNAGGLEPUSS. Don't care.
FLINTSTONES. Similar to the Jetsons one, I don't think it will "destroy" anything.
PLASTIC MAN. What can I say? A) What DC property hasn't been made darker over the decades? B) How many people "grew up" with Plastic Man?
WACKY RACElAND. O my god! This seems badass, I want to get the trade.
SCOOBY APOCALYPSE. Seems... Weird, but I don't think it'll be hard to seperate it from the show.
ARCHIE VS. PREDATOR. Seems hilarious, closest one yet but still too funny.
WONDER DOG. I really, really, really don't care.

Wow, was that lame or what?

Judging by a lot on that list, so just because DC is making some edgy comics based on kids cartoons, that's what this is about?

Considering that Archie TMNT was my childhood, much more so than the 90's cartoon, Cityfall was in no way shocking or brutal.

"Awesome" is more the term I'd use.

And I can only imagine the folks who compiled this list didn't read Donnie's up-close and personal encounter with the business end of a sledgehammer? Or BishLash (almost went with BiSlash, then I thought it through) rounding up the Mutanimals? That would blow their minds to chunks.

The Sabrina comic is also f*ckin' great, I recommend it!

I sort of want to read that He-Man comic now.

I wouldn't take this as all "Negative," just a clickbaity list to talk about darker re-imaginings of old properties. Which is all the rage now.

The new Flintstones comic isn't exactly up my political ally but from what I've seen I'll confess it's actually quite cleverly done satire.

Yeah a better title would be "15 Comics of Characters From Your Childhood with Dark Reboots" or something like that but grammatically better.

Far from his best article but Cronin is the only good thing about CBR these days.

Wow, that's some hyperbole.

07-02-2017, 08:56 PM
Kind of a clickbaity article.
List is lame. Some people might be surprised by some of these comics, but I dunno about that claim that they "destroy your childhood". :roll:

Also, I really liked Archie vs Predator. Those fools had it coming. It was long overdue.

I miss Comics Should Be Good a good deal.

hoping Jetsons will be good. Flintstones was great.

07-02-2017, 10:39 PM
I've heard it was great. Though, I've now started to think of this (http://fasgdfshdtyjfgkljf.tumblr.com/post/157680175151) when it comes to that Flintstones series.

The Ten Inch Mutant Ninja Turtles porn parody is a more efficient "childhood destroyer".

Oups, it's not a comic book.
So let's say The Birds, the Bees and the Turtles :tgrin:.

15 Comic Books that turned out better than the campy cartoons on which they were based.
