I loved Garth Ennis' work in Preacher... alas, having him do superheroes would inevitably give the same results as the Snyderverse fiasco.

Jut like Snyder, Garth Ennis clearly hates superheroes, he doesn't understand the genre, he isn't sold on the might of the self-realized individual. He prefers metahumans and villains, so that's what he does (also, the fact that Ennis' career started during the Iron Age of comics when it was all about being dark and edgy definitely shaped him).

I had my fill of edgelord shit in the 90s, and the world outside my window is already a cesspool, and I see it every day. I don't need fiction that also reminds me of it, I consume fiction precisely to remove myself from this cesspool of a planet. Hell, I wouldn't have liked The Boys even back in 2006, that's four whole years after The Ultimates (which is basically the compromise of the genre with "realism" done right). Sure, I had an edgelord phase just like every other 90s' teen, but that was a long time ago.


PS: The cosplay? It's Zealot from WildCATs, yet another relic of the edgy 90s.
