I believe that the D.C. comics reboot was a positive thing for new and old comic readers alike. It is a great chance for new readers to jump in to the world of D.C comics while old readers will find the re-imagined characters and origin story's interesting. The new 52 is also resurrecting older comics that had died out in the eighties such as Hawk and Dove.
I think its a bad idea. because simply when you try to rewrite a classic it always ends up bad. trying to rewrite comics wont do anything good. If you remade that comic how is it going to make it popular if it already died out? To me i dont think remaking it will make any difference on people. Thus forth just leave the comic how it is and dont try to renew it!
