Let's break this on down.
For those new to this concept, a "reboot" is a resetting of the continuity in a fictional world. This sounds crazy on the surface as one would wonder why you want to ignore stories and risk alienating long time fans. People spent time and money reading these stories. They're invested. But now that investment doesn't matter?
It does matter, but there's a case to be made for reboots and they are necessary on occasion.
