I really didn't care for Infinity, Inc. I felt they played up the whole "legacy" thing too often. Mix in the retroactive continuity and it was more of a burden than a pleasant read. It was meant to play homage to DC's history, but was weighed down by it.
Also seemed to have a lot of "teen romance", which is always cheesy in comics. I remember a scene where Brainwave Jr and Jade are on an adventure, in a cave, and star banging as they decide they're "in love".
Helix seemed like an interesting and quirky villain group when they first debuted. They were sort of a pre-cursor to 90's Image teams, in a way (Gen 13 reminded me of them). Yet they kinda' get shoved away with only Mr. Bones getting any real attention.
I did like the idea of turning the Star-Spangled Kid into "Skyman", though. I don't think that happens until fairly late in the run. There's also a strong connection to the Sandman franchise, as I think the kid of Fury and Silver Scarab becomes significant. Never been into Sandman, so I forget the exact connection/character. "Daniel"?
