Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Yes because as has been explained to you before Batman and Green Lantern were titles that were high sellers for DC already. They didn't need to touch those. Everything else was up for grabs in their eyes, especially Superman. Remember that above all else, this was a sales grab. Pure and simple. One that has worked for the most part in spades for them.

I have agreed that a reboot would have been the way to go several times in the thread...it just wasn't going to happen though. Although I'm sure it that was an option they have discussed. As I've said before in the thread, they probably also didn't want to rock the boat too much. Have their cake and eat it too mentality. Except that they have indeed pissed off certain groups of fandom. They didn't want to piss off everyone, so a few here and there is okay!
