Action Comics: "Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes"
Brave and the Bold
Green Lantern: "Sinestro Corps War"
Wonder Woman: "Ends of the Earth"
All seven give me more enjoyment than Brubaker's Captain America. Hell, even TITANS gives me more enjoyment than Brubaker's Captain America (but I'm not including it in the above list because I don't think it's *good* per se, whereas the above ones *are*). You're just going to have to face it: not everybody has the same tastes as you.

Dan Didio isn't worried about losing his job as editor-in-chief of DC Comics. Judging by the response from Saturday's DC Nation panel at HeroesCon in Charlotte, North Carolina, nobody else wants it anyway, unless the offer comes with a closet of shoes.
Do you think that if he was worried about it he'd come out and say it?
If I were DiDio, I'd be more worried about staying on. Leaving would be a relief.
And the more I read, the more my respect for him lessened.
Look at Morrisons opening arcs of a series, like New X-Men or JLA.
Look At Johns opening arcs on a series, Teen Titans or JSA.
Morrisons win straight out the gate on accessibility, and we can argue the others.
He doesn't feel the need to retcon character back into 80's versions of themselves though, so I think that shows more respect for continuity, character and the fans.
But bugger my little examples, you tell me how this is so.
I'd never brought a Cap issue before, but I tried the first trade and found it really enjoyable.
Steranko's Nick Fury meets Sleeper.
Although Paul, if you want to dip your toes, check out the Union Jack mini by Christos Gage and Mike Perkins from a couple of years ago - shows how to do a 'modern' superhero story, without losing the fun of the past - realism without grittiness.
Not entirely sure what happened with it or even who the father was. She had had sex with Hal Jordan, but it could've been mystical. She had some mystical Atlantean powers for a while (or rather, the baby had them and was using them while she was pregnant) and I think that the baby got hyper-aged and then disappeared.
And for the record, I did enjoy a number of those comics you mentioned but they are all nowhere near the quality of Brubaker's Cap run. (And certainly not Titans. Yikes...)
To fully understand Brubaker's story, one has to realize something that he said following Marvel Civil War (I am paraphrasing this line). Captain America hadn't lost touch with America, America had lost touch with Cap. That is basically the "one-line high concept pitch" of the book.
The book is now about the supporting cast (Bucky, Sharon Carter, Tony Stark, Red Skull and others) moving ahead in a world without Steve Rogers. Despite Cap being dead, the book is in many ways more about him than ever. Of course this being comics we all know Cap won't stay dead (he is Captain America, after all) but Brubaker is turning in quality work here.
I think he's feeling the heat....so he won't come out and be all scared. Thats not how someone who deals in the public work.
