Talkin' about his generation: UGO.com (no jokes, please) talks to legendary comics writer Len Wein about "Gene Pool," the X-Men movies, Man-Thing, and the trouble writers of his generation have finding work at DC and Marvel:

"... I just had another project that DC passed on yesterday. ... It was a pitch for a terrific Batman Elseworlds. I think they've decided that they don't want to do those anymore. But [DC Comics President] Paul Levitz loved it and various editors liked it. But unfortunately the person who makes the decisions over there decided they don't care if its good, bad or indifferent just that they don't do Elseworlds anymore. I wonder if he would have said the same thing if Grant Morrison had the same idea."
