    How many times can one tell origin stories? DC and Marvel do some type of rebooting every few years, at least on some titles. How many times has Superman been rebooted? They never accomplish anything beyond bumping up sales for a few months, till readers figure out how bogus the reboots are. But, of course, sales are the only reason to do this.
