Re: When is DC's The New 52 going to revert back to the original unive

I think that's what I'm guessing: Azarello has something up his sleeve, and we won't have to wait for a new team to learn that Amazons aren't murdering sperm-stealers.

They'll revert back to the DCU when sales start truly slumping again. I have stated that I believe the character of Pandora to be a back door plot device to help them do just that.

I doubt it.

Didio has staked his reign at DC over the reboot.

All three of them have really, DiDio, Johns, and Lee. So yeah House of UIster is probably right. It'll be a long time I think if at all...if it reverts.

I doubt it will ever completely revert, but I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they started adding more elements from the old continuity as it goes on. I wouldn't be at all if in another 5 or 10 years, the New 52 is pretty close to what we had before.

It's possible they could re-tweak things as opposed to revert. They seem to really love tweaking right now anyway.

I think that is exactly what will happen.

In 5 years, they will have enough "new" fans of the "new" continuity, why would they revert?

Why would they revert... ever? In two or three years, who is still going to care about the "old" continuity? Maybe a vocal minority... but who cares?

LOL! As soon as the 90's generation hits middle age, and is running the show at DC, they'll cater to their generation and it's nostalgia.

After which the generation currently buying will run the show, chuck it all as it enters it's nostalgia phase and bring back a new nu52...on and on.

Re: When is DC's The New 52 going to revert back to the original unive

I've just gone one question.

How, exactly, does "The New 52" differ from the 52-Earth multiverse established after Countdwn to Infinite Final Identity Crisis or whatever it was that they did in 2008 that created 52 Earths? Did they already establish a new multiverse just a few years ago, before this new new multiverse?

Re: When is DC's The New 52 going to revert back to the original unive

^ The 52'Verse is almost an entirely new continuity, separate from the DCU (and which now includes the Wildstorm universe). The multiverse still exists, as there are alternate realities. I don't know about the 52 Earths though. They're still establishing things. The relaunch is a work in progress.

Johns less so imo since he is also working on the DCU animation and other licensing stuff.

Re: When is DC's The New 52 going to revert back to the original unive

They'll borrow from the old versions what they want and make up new stuff as time goes by. That's been standard operating procedure at DC for thirty to fifty years now.

I can't see why they would ever revert back entirely to the continuity of an earlier generation. That's not how it works.

One of the aspects of the new52 that I find intriguing is the existence of Pandora. Unlike the Mephisto/Spider-man nonsense, where Marvel tried their best not to explain anything - it just worked ("magic") - the new 52verse has actual, visible seams. I think this is deliberate, not just as a backdoor to bring the old continuity back (as Greg says, that's unlikely to happen). Part of the fabric of DC's universe is that time is extremely fluid, that the heroes often lost these big game-changing events in whole or in part (if by "victory" we mean stability and continuity).

Difficult continuity and things which don't make sense seem to be core to how people in the DC universe actually live. The survival of Thomas Wayne's letter to his son is a clear indication that Batman, at least, is aware not just of the multiverse, but of the ever-changing nature of reality itself.

Re: When is DC's The New 52 going to revert back to the original unive

The reason why I stated I believe Pandora to be a back door plot device is due to the line she gave Barry in the final issue of Flashpoint the 52'Verse was being created by the merging realities. She stated something to the effect of you need to help me fix the timeline Barry. Not realities, but timeline. For some reason I took that to meant that the 52'Verse was somehow "flawed" or needed fixing. Maybe I'm leaning too much into nothing. It is obviously that Pandora is tied into something greater going on...perhaps the first true relaunch event next year? I dunno.
