WWMNzD?... with Judd Winick?

So Michael Netzer threw down the gauntlet at DC to allow himself the chance to become professionally reacquainted with J'Onn J'Onzz, the Manhunter from Mars. That's great, but I don't see DC having faith in veteran talent to produce quality stories. No, we're going to need a gimmick. Death-- resurrection-- new costume-- turning toward the dark side-- hot button issues. Who, we must ask, is the best possible candidate to write tales that inflict agendas on characters and readers alike, without regard for continuity, character voice, decorum, logic, or any discernable talent? When ick hits the comic page, I think we all know who's to blame. Now, all we have to ask is, "What Would Michael Netzer Do, should he be saddled with... Judd Winick?!?"

When ick is too small to read, we click to enlarge...

And by chance, Damian Maffei found what would be chiseled on his tombstone in an undetermined amount of time.

That and "loving husband and father."

Poet, they name is Judd! Also, thy star of "Taxi," alongside Tony Danza as "Tony."

We might have had just that, if the DC Explosion hadn't ruined Adventure Comics by trying to spin both characters off into series. Aparo & Netzer... such a dreamy combination!
