Yep. Batman Vs Bane came out last month in trade. I think...but not sure, that Son of the Demon is getting a release as well prior to "The Dark Knight Rises" release.

I think DC just released a trade with some of the Batman/Talia/Ras al-Ghul stuff, which might confirm that they're pushing that back story both as part of the New 52 and for the upcoming film.
But...but...Talia and Ras are NOT in TDKR! They've said so. It must be true despite the massive amount of evidence to the contrary.

I dropped it after the third, but it looked pretty clear that the situation was as you suggest. This new information, that Bruce wanted the JLI as a kind of distraction meant only for publicity, seems to directly contradict that. The onyl way I can reconcile the two is to suggest that Justice League 7 takes place before JLI 1, and that Batman changes his mind after seeing the team in action (except that here he says he has zero respect for the team after seeing them in action).
I was thinking that a) Justice League 7 takes place before JLI 1 and b) Batman is referring to an original quickly-squashed (by Batman) JLI that existed prior to JLI 1. In other words, the distraction JLI is some group that existed as a brief idea but never got over the ground due to Batman stepping in and squashing it. He decided the more recent incarnation, though, had more potential.
Why would they make it that difficult to fit into continuity?
...as opposed to the idea that Batman both likes and hates the current JLI? He didn't seem to be joking about hating some version of the JLI in Justice League 7, and he clearly wants the JLI to succeed in the JLI comics.

I suppose another other option, though, is that Batman sees the only way for the JLI to succeed is for the group to be separate from the UN. In other words, he's lying to Trevor in Justice League 7 in order to get the UN to remove funding.

Nah he was being an ass. Yep. I'm sticking with this since this was the way the line was written.


New villain for the Justice League...designed of course by Jim Lee.

Yup, that's a Jim Lee design alright.

I've noticed most if not all the designs for characters in the New 52 seem to have a conformity about them (not sure if that is the right word to describe my observations or not).

How is the new 52 Captain Atom title? Is it any good or is it worthy of being in the next round of cancellations?

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

It hasn't been cancelled yet, far as I know. I'm wondering if we'll get any Secret Origins (not Secret Origin) for the 52'Verse? I think the last Secret Origins issue we got was for Final Crisis. Also...and I can't remember now if I stated this earlier in the thread or in the other news thread, but the Who's Who that was announced two years ago at SDCC (maybe longer now) is pretty much dead (duh) probably to do with the relaunch happening. Robert Greenberger was supposed to write them.

Talia is in Batman Inc Leviathan Strikes.

And one of the main characters in Demon Knights I suspect is a younger version of Ra's in better times.

Yeah, it looks like everyone shops at Jim Lee's Super Suit Emporium.

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

Sorry if this has already been posted, but I have just finished reading this arc, and I keep thinking there is a continuity error. In issue one, the green plane flies over Vic's head and in issue two, the Mother Box at STAR labs is said to come from Superman's battle prior to the end of issue one. The STAR labs are in Detroit but all other clues seem to imply that GreenLantern and Batman meet Superman in Metropolis. Any suggestions about this?

I don't think this has been brought up before...and the way the arc was written, I wouldn't be surprised if there were continuity glitches. The only theory I have was that Star Labs has a Metropolis lab and perhaps they requested a transfer from the Detroit lab??

No, because Vic shows up at the lab to see his father. Continuity error is my theory.

Stephanie was in Levitation Strikes! and has been demoted back to Spoiler. I believe she is supposed to be in Batman, Incorporated Volume Two when it returns this summer.
But the "Leviathan Strikes" issue was still set in the old DC universe, according to Stewart, the artist. So her appearance there doesn't mean a lot for the New 52.
