I don't understand; you make it sound like empty battlefields were a problem. Was such empty space a bother before?William C. Maune said:Part of it may be personal preference then. As for me, I'd much rather have distinct characters doing things in the background even if they never have a chance to be developed, rather than more trees and shubs in the background or a bunch of generic fighters (i.e. red shirted ensigns).
I seriously disagree. Once we got the masks off, it was a perfect time to begin developing the Leaguer's other lives. Do John, Jonn', or Wally have any friends besides the league? Do they have families? Until Starcrossed, they (with the exception of Batman and Superman) were like the Teen Titans; they had no "secret identities". Now that all secrets were out, we could pay attention to that side of their lives we hadn't seen before.This is a widely voiced complaint whose justification I find dubious. Frankly, I don't think there was much left of the big 7 that needed further exploration
