    Default DC comics that have jumped the shark

    The gimmick of Mary Marvel being gone to the Dark side has ruined the quality of the storyline a bit.

    Batman's death was an attempt to keep the readers' interest and for the comics' quality to stay fresh. It fails, because there have been too many deaths before Batman.

    Given that occurred about four years ago; have they come back down yet?

    DC comics as a whole jumped the shark with Identity Crisis and Infinite Crisis.

    Batman jumped the shark with Bruce Wayne Murderer and War Games, taking the batdick concept a thousand times farther than what could work and still have him be likeable. His 'death,' which was confirmed from the very start to be him being sent back in time, was one piece of a large process to have Batman recover from the morass the above stories left him in.

    Batman - When TJ Wayne was revealed

    When Rob Liefeld got three series after causing the cancellation of Hawk and Dove. Yes, that's not a comic jumping the shark, but it was still ridiculous.

    Completely wrong interpretation of that event.
    I support Danny LuVisi's Last Man Standing.

    On topic: Any of the titles that had the disgrace of being written by Liefeld.

    Amazons Attack and Rise of Arsenal were both excellent material for Shark Jumping.

    I'm going to have to agree. People need to chill out on the Snyder hate. Don't like the story, fine, but let it go!

    And, surprised that nobody has mentioned that in John's New 52 Justice League, Batman reveals his identity to Green Lantern in like an hour.

    Over it or not, it's a jump the shark moment, hence mentioning it in this thread.

    Might be difficult to believe but some people actually thought that it was a good twist.

    I think it's hard to have true "jump the shark" moments in comics, because continuity shifts so often. If something bad happens it's quickly retconned, and even the good stuff gets retconned...everything gets retconned and redone. To have a "jump the shark" moment, you'd need something so bad that it permanently taints the character or property. Something like that would be Identity Crisis, with the Dibnys and Dr Light. Or in Marvel, One More Day. I'm struggling to think of others. I mean you could pick pretty much any character and they've had "jump the shark" moments that were retconned or made obsolete, stuff like Hal Jordan becoming Parallax or Death of Superman, etc.
