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

Yeah, the Pre-Crisis notion of the multiple Earth was stupid and out lived its usefulness. It was a good move to ditch it.

However, I'm willing to give the re-introduction of it a chance. More to point, I am curious about what they are going to do with it. Will it be the same as before with multiple Supermen and Batmen wandering around? Or will it have its own set of characters? Will it force a World War II connection to a present day JSA? Or will it be a simple parallel world where the JSA was founded in the present day? Or will the whole thing take place during WWII? Or was the JSA active during WWII and they actually did something about it, giving Earth-2 a whole different history?

There are lots of possibilities and avenues that can be taken with an alternate Earth concept. I'm hoping they will go wild and take risks with it instead of playing it safe and making it more-or-less what the Pre-Crisis Earth-2.

With Huntress as the adult daughter of Bruce and Selina, there's most likely an offset of several decades in their careers.

Maybe it's now the post-Crisis, pre nuDC Superman and Batman running around with the Justice Society.

If it's Wayne I don't care.
It's Wayne. Levitz is up front about in the interview. "Helena Bertinelli" is a name she's been using and has decided to dump. She's also the daughter of the daughter of Earth 2's Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle.

Looking through the first three issues of the mini, I don't see the name "Bertinelli" being used. She's in Italy investigating a smuggling operation. And as mention by Levitz, Helena called herself "more of a cat person" in issue three. She seems to be a bit less grim that past versions as well. Reminds of her mom.

The more multiverse we get the better. I want 52 annuals, one from each earth all telling the same story with a different twist.

I like Morrison's idea of the multiverse more: a finite universe of 52 worlds with Earth-0's existence being absolutely critical to everything.

I hope this Earth 2 is better than his current Legion work.

DC really doesn't want me to buy Savage Hawkman. Liefeld is joining the creative team as plotter.

Meh.

The faster it gets canceled. The better. Tony Daniel was never meant to be a writer and the current book is an abomination. I'll never understand what was going through their minds when they traded James Robinson for Tony Daniel as the writer on Hawkman.

Suddenly, some of DC's recent reprint decisions make sense, like the Infinity, Inc. and All-Star Squadron collections. While I'm personally excited by these, I wasn't seeing a lot of relevance to the current state of the DCU in dredging up stories of Earth-2.

I dig the multiverse set up by Morrison as well. I suppose one of the reasons why I've been looking so much to "Multiversity".

Bleeding Cool claims this is the new DC Comics logo, or at least one of them...which I think looks ugly as hell. They should just stick with the swoosh if this is what they're upgrading to.

Bleeding Cool...arguably the most insecure blog on the internet.

Possibly. Possibly not. All we have is a name with no point of reference other than what was done in old continuities.

Again, I'm curious to see what they do this time around.

Maybe it's now the post-Crisis, pre nuDC Superman and Batman running around with the Justice Society.
Perhaps the trunks will be back in "less than a year"!

Those hoping for Justice League #5 on Wed...are gonna have to wait. I was wondering if this book would be late. We're not even done the first arc yet!!
