It's more of a marketing strategy than an attempt to "fix" anything. Like killing Superman or Batman for a few months, it brings in ex-readers who get curious when they hear about it.

But do you really want them all to age? Batman would be in his 70s or 80s by now. I was surprised Aunt May is still alive though. She was on her last legs when I was a kid.
