Like I suppose most everyone realizes about the era they sort of grew up in, I never noticed the 90s were so weird when I was there at the time.

At age 12 I was just thankful Jim Lee was so good at drawing titties

If these makeovers were from the 90s, then they were Xtreme not extreme.

Duh.

I have no probs with make-overs

I cant stand it when they rewrite cannon. Superman has died how many times now? How many times has he been rebooted? Why is the original Green Lantern a gay man now? How many times has Spiderman got that black goo all over him?

Insane. Friggin insane.

What difference does it make if the 90s are revisited? No shiats at all are given about superhero makeovers. None.

Yes, I grew up during the Jim Lee era, too, and we were all IMPRESSED by how great he was (and MacFarlane).  Then, when we grew up, we realized that basic anatomy was lost on these guys, and most of their impressive style resulting from inking and colors.

\still, Lee could draw the shiat out of a boot

And even though we'll never come out and admit it, there was a point in all our young lives when we thought Leifeld drew the coolest characters.  Then we turned 14.

DC is quickly making sure they get back to the 90's: they let Rob Liefeld due redesigns on the Teen Titans (there were pouches) and Bob Harras, the man who helped run Marvel to bankruptcy in the 90's, is in charge now.

I'm sure we can thank him for the embossed Batman Zero Year cover we'll be getting soon.

The sad part is, they're going back to Marvel's 90s, which sucked.

DC in the 90s was pretty damn good. Starman, Waid's Flash, Kyle Rayner, Resurrection Man, Morrison's JLA, PAD on Supergirl...

Only once.

How many times has he been rebooted?

More times than anyone would like to count.

Why is the original Green Lantern a gay man now?

Only on "Earth 2."

How many times has Spiderman got that black goo all over him?

Only once.  The other times it was his own hand-made costume.

Get your point.  IIRC it was John Romita Sr. stated (paraphrasing) "Just write a good story."  Sadly, many writers don't stick to that and decide "Oh, s/he needs a new costume" or "Oh, s/he needs a change in the status quo."

Malice was just one story.

In the 90s, that was Sue's actual costume for an extended period of time.

/and the pic of it came from a wonderful story by Karl Kesel, the best F4 writer to always be denied a fulltime run on F4.

They didn't include Hal Jordan as Parallax (Emerald Twilight/Emerald Dawn).  Classic Wonder Woman is always best; I tried to slog through the 1960s-1970s "I Ching" phase, but found her boring.  And then there's this 90s abomination:

Nah. I still think he's awesome, but then again, these are comic books about superhumans who solve EVERYTHING with violence and I never expected any kind of reality in them. The X-Men stopped making sense with giant size x-men. Why do you need a code name if you're not wearing a disguise?

I have a fondness for the 90's superhero costumes. I mean, yeah they are ridiculous, but they're so much fun to look at. The 90's Techno-Viking Thor is still one of my favorites.

That and Electric Blue Superman. I've always been a massive Superman fan, but at the same time I've never been ridiculously attached to the "iconic" features of the character. Give me an "S" emblem and a general selfless boyscout personality and I'm good. So Electric Superman was an exciting departure that I quite enjoyed as a kid. Plus even today I still think he looks all kinds of badass.
