Matthias Wivel On CR’s Best Super-Hero Comics Of The ‘00s List
posted February 6, 2010

Not that you need it, probably, but here's one more suggestion for your list of superhero titles.

Captain America: Truth. To me this is one of the few superhero series of the last many years that genuinely uses the genre for a purpose beyond its own tradition, intelligently, and in a way where it makes perfect sense that it precisely is a superhero story instead of using the genre's trappings a window dressing.

Also, you need some more Kyle Baker on that list, and his approach here is fresh and different, just as it is in Plastic Man. 😊
