They're all overshadowed by the original, Bruce Wayne who IS Batman. That's what carries forward from reboot to reboot, Bruce Wayne as Batman, Clark Kent as Superman, Princess Diana as Wonderwoman, Green Lantern is a bit more pliable, but that's because at best, he's a second stringer in the DC Pantheon compared to the Trinity.
thejeff your arguing that they don't get rid of big name heroes... I get that, but if superman is retired and a grown up superboy takes the name and uniform then who would really care? It would still sell under the superman title. Are you really suggesting that the ONLY superman fans will buy is the original Kal-El? And if so then how irritated will those fans be when they reboot him and wipe out every story they ever loved reading in one shot?
Maybe that's why I am failing here. I don't know most of these heroes outside of TV or movies. It just seemed like common sense.
