- You take over Supergirl, but your run last a whole 3 issues, all marred by having to be "event" crossovers; you're reduced to being a place-holder between the 2 Kelly's, Joe Kelly and Kelley Puckett.
- You take over the Legion of Super-heroes after Mark Waid, but your run is ended after a mere 6 issues. You're moved aside for Jim Shooter, who used to write the Legion 150 years ago, and admits that he hasn't even read the Legion in years.
- You grab one of the golden rings, a Batman book, of sorts. You're launching the New Batman & The Outsiders!! Uh-oh, not so fast: you're canned from that book BEFORE IT'S EVEN PUBLISHED...you won't even get to do #1!!!! That's gotta be some kinda record, huh?
So, what did you do, Tony--run over Dan DiDio's grandmother? Date and dump Paul Levitz's daughter?
Really, a 2-year exclusive contract for this???
