Agreed. I didn't care for the random killing in Resolute, but watching Snake-Eyes dispatch Cobra troopers and booby trapping grenade belts: Classic comic type stuff. Not sure if you could have a really long series like that though. Eventually, they would run out of "edgy."
Having a live action short series on Netflix or Amazon could gauge some interest. Pretty sure they keep track of how many people watch those. If it is well received, keep it going. If not, it's just season 1.
I am fine with introducing new "Joe-like" characters.
I'm even fine with modernizing existing characters into today's more current environment.
I'm not a fan of re-booting existing characters.
Don't do - Today, Raphael "Zap" Melendez will be a Japanese exchange student at MIT working on particle physics.
Do - Introduce a new character, Dr. Shikaku Matzusaka who is visiting MIT for a conference on particle physics and ends up helping the Joes during an episode.
Don't do - Have Dial-Tone free of his mustache, and gender changed.
Do - Introduce a new character, Jill Morelli code-name Switchboard, cousin of the late Dial-Tone (if he was KIA on a mission bravely, or retired from active duty).
See how easy it is to accomplish character goals without swerving into the oncoming lane of fan resistance?
