Freedom Fighters? Again?

I don't get DC's determination to use these Quality heroes as a group or not at all. What I need, I think, is a sprawling JLA/JSA/FF epic that will give me a reason to care who these people are.

Let's have Doll Man and the Atom learn how best to exploit being six inches tall. If Marvel Divas and Birds of Prey can work, then surely Phantom Lady, Jesse Quick and Big Barda can work up a little chemistry. Hawkman and Black Condor. The Ray and Captain Atom. Black Canary, the Red Bee and the Bulleteer (remember her?). Uncle Sam and the Phantom Stranger. (If, in fact, they're not actually the same person.)

DC has tons of characters in their closet in need of rehabilitation. I wonder what Batman and Robin and Knight and Squire would make of Mister Scarlet and Pinky.

Potential Disney Heroines

As Sam Nielson alludes, The Hunchback of Notre Dame as written is not exactly fertile ground for growing Disney princesses (Esmeralda dies, Quasimodo kills Frollo, then starves to death at Esmeralda's graveside). (A strong second place for inappropriate cartoonification is Don Bluth's Anastasia.)

But if that worked... Perhaps the world is ready for Disney's Romeo and Juliet. Or Wuthering Heights. Or Frankenstein...
