Doug: So what we want from you today is some rationale, some explanation as to why this or that character or title fizzled. Why were some characters like the Black Widow basically a one-and-done? Why did the Inhumans get two somewhat-long try-outs? Black Goliath unfortunately (to me) went from being a C-lister to being a CCCCCCCC-lister, almost never to be heard from again (oh wait -- until they needed a sacrificial lamb in that debacle a few years ago). I don't personally find anything wrong with the character. Actually, he's been around about as long as anyone (since what, 1966 or so?). I know I've given Marvel examples above, but that's where my wheelhouse is. I'd certainly welcome our DC-leaning friends to jump in as well.
