I wouldn't have resisted either... if you hadn't beaten me to it.

So have they moved the Leviathan story into the New 52 then, or is it still in the pre-Flashpoint universe?

Or Morrison is ignoring the New 52 would probably be the better option. We really don't know. The book does have the Batman books New 52 colour scheme swoosh and we do know that all the Batman books retained their continuity. I personally look at this as taking place alongside the other books. Perhaps an interview with Morrison will clarify.

But will it ignore The Last Stand? That's the real question.

But what if The Last Stand didn't ignore Morrison? Surely it would have been infinitely improved by Xavier having a twin whom he ate in the womb, Magneto somehow successfully pretending to be a Chinese guy, Beast getting possessed by a living, sapient drug, and time travel.

Wasn't it actually a Chinese guy pretending to be Magneto pretending to be a Chinese guy?

I don't know, and after reading Leviathan Strikes! I'm not sure if I really care if it's in the DCnU. I'll take it on its own terms.

In a way, I'm glad that it wasn't published in the individual issues when they were supposed to; the Batgirl chapter (would have been Batman, Inc. #9) would have been a little problematical in Batgirl's continuity between issues #22 and #23. (Stephanie told her mom that she was going to London for a few days, but her adventure at the boarding school lasts over a month. Not only that, but she couldn't just disappear from Gotham U for over a month. People would ask questions, she'd fail her classes.)

If Leviathan Strikes does take place in the DCnU, then I'm tentatively putting it after Batgirl #24. The missing link between Batgirl #22 and #23 is Batman arranging for Steph's enrollment at the school, and then after #24 (and the semester) Steph goes back to London to complete her assignment. In this case, we may well have two Batgirls in the DCnU; Barbara resumed the role since 1) she could walk again and 2) Steph was out of Gotham.

Still, the best line? "Outstanding work, Batgirl." As a long-time Steph fan, that means a lot for Bruce to say that to Steph.

Actually, Byrne insisted on clearing the decks. Making Kal el the sole survivor of Krypton was something he demanded as a condition of taking over the book. It wasn't something DC asked him to do.
Other way around. Byrne offered to come on and do his book in current continuity (much like on FF when he focused on the thing that made them cool and just stopped referring to the not s great stuff.). DC wanted a ground zero relaunch. So JB went away, thought about it and came back with a list of "unreasonable demands" regarding the direction of the character--expecting DC to shoot down most of them. Surprsingly DC agreed to all but one--pregnant Lara arriving on Earth in the rocket and dieing of Kryptonite poisoning after giving birth.
Granted its 25 years ago now but I'm going on what Byrne told me at the time.

Byrne is not a reliable source.

Though it wasn't explained in the film, the guy in the bed at Muir Island was supposed to be Xavier's twin, but he clearly didn't get eaten in the womb.
