I don't think there's anything wrong with resting an idea. Let someone bring back The Authority in ten years, when there's something new worth saying about the subgenre and it takes a company-owned asset to say it with. Honestly, when *all* the superhero comics are about ripping people's bits off and rubbing dead cats over themselves while pretending to be on heroin, The Authority as originally executed really doesn't bring the different any more, does it?

That said: the WildStorm Universe stuff was as robust a set of company-owned assets as you can find in the field, and ceasing publication and integrating them into DCU (if that's what's going to happen) makes less sense than taking the leash off WildStorm 's intelligent and hungry editorial department, kicking some funding loose and letting them do the necessary surgery to get those assets earning money again.
