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

I've been thinking more about the theory that the timeline should be expanded: Batman operating for ten years, Superman for five-six. I agree the timeline should've been seven-ten, but I think DC is reluctant to out and out state that Batman was the first superhero, given that Superman was historically the first (1938) and so should be the first hero within the universe (its a meta argument, but it seems to be their direction).

The problem seems solvable by simply suggesting that Bruce Wayne did not operate as "Batman" until Superman first appeared in blurred form in Metropolis, but I can see why they want to keep it fuzzy.
I want to be sedated.
