I was enjoying the New Crusaders versions which were set in the present day of the existing Red Circle/MLJ universe.

Maybe this is the next step of the Black Hood's legacy though. Either way, i look forward to seeing it.

I'm so disappointed...I really wish Red Circle wouldn't jump on this "dark" bandwagon that's been rolling since the late '80s. If I want bleak, grim, cynical super hero stories, I can go buy DC and Marvel comic books. I read Archie because I want fun and adventure. I enjoyed the New Crusaders comic and hoped for more, even though I missed the original versions of those characters. The Fox was in the right tone but personally found the story uninteresting to the point that I haven't even read the last two issues yet. Man, why does the Black Hood need to be scarred and violent? No thanks, I'll pass...I hope this isn't a portent of what Archie plans to do with its super hero line across the board.
