File this under "Truth"
I get the same feeling as when I'm playing Uno and someone plays a green 3 when I have a blue 1 and a yellow 2 and I really wish I could add them together but I can't so I fill up with impotent frustration and a sense of inevitable failure.
Truer words were never spoken.
The endless crossovers were a big reason I stopped reading mainstream superhero comics.
Except Uno doesn't expect you to pay your hard earned cash for the four you draw.Marvel and DC do.
These days, Marvel and DC are an entire deck of Draw 4s. They can barely end one megacrossover event before starting the next one. Hell, most of them don't even HAVE endings, just segues into the next one. They're like Monty Python sketches without the humor.
