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

So, no comments on Carrie showing up in the Batman titles? or was that so many pages back I missed it?
Okay, thoughts.

My first reaction was, "That's cool."

My second reaction, after I processed the first, was, "Why her? Has anyone really clamored for her return?"

My third reaction, once I was able to articulate the second, was, "Is Carrie Kelly really that interesting a character that people are going to care? And does it make sense to call this character 'Carrie Kelly' outside of her original context, because isn't she really going to be an entirely different character within the context of the 'New 52'?"

My fourth thought, then, was, "DC is bringing Carrie back while Stephanie and Cass are still in limbo. A character who hasn't been seen in print in a decade and wasn't significantly in print in twenty-five years gets prioritized above characters who have active fanbases."

This one's baffling to me, honestly.
