It's interesting that they combined the aliens from GM's run with the Time Tailors from SS. More so since they serve similar roles.

SS meaning Seven Soldiers? I didn't think anything from that series was getting back into continuity anytime soon.

There is a lot of influences.

Frankenstein who was introduced in SS has his own book.

The revamped Shining Knight is in Demon Knights.

And Manhattan Guardian starred in Action Comics as a member of the JLA of the alternate universe President Superman.

I forgot the Shining Knight (and her horse) - Cornell's been reworking that element of SS in an interesting way. I recall Frankenstein, but he was a member of the Creature Commandos before SS, I think; but his speech patterns are definitely out of Morrison. I wouldn't count the Guardian, necessarily, because there's a pretty long history there, but I take your point. It's a shame not much of the Zatanna series is sneaking in, but her lack of confidence does feel a little like GM's version.

The Creature Commandos version was a very different Frankenstein. Morrison's version is pretty much a different character.

Does Multiversity take place in the New 52 though? This has been in development long before the relaunch ever was, but maybe since it deals with characters from different realities this doesn't matter? I've been wondering how the 52'Verse would affect Multiversity.

Real Answer: Depends on who is writing.

In-Universe: the DCU Earth is the cornerstore of the multiverse. Because it changed presumably some of the other Earths also changed like Earth-2.

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

What passes for dialogue in the third issue of Earth 2 is abysmal, and Alan Scott's origin could hardly be more gimmicky and obtuse (Garrick's was fairly nifty, but then it was a lift from Hal Jordan's). This has gone south real quick, unless one has a real fannish interest in playing connect-the-dots with the old Earth 2 mythology.

This is one of the problems that I've had since the relaunch was announced. The claim that this was planned since (October) again that comment from DiDio or was it Lee now? I've forgotten.
2009 actually, according to contemporaneous account. DiDio didn't specify which October when he referred to it last year, leading to the erroneous notion that it was more recent.

Interesting. Had no idea that Rich had been tracking the relaunch for so long (or what would become the relaunch), and he nailed Justice League and who was going to be working on it. We're still waiting for Grant Morrison's Wonder Woman project. I'm guessing he'll get around to doing it once he finishes his Batman run.

Dan Jurgens is taking over FIRESTORM? I guess anything is an improvement over Van Sciver.

Interesting since Jurgens had a lengthy run with Jason pre-NU52.

Jurgens didn't have a lengthy run with Jason pre-new 52. He had one with Booster, but the closest he had with Jason was doing art chores on one issue towards the end of his run.

Anyway, not being a big Jurgens fan, I think my decision to drop Firestorm, despite really enjoying the character, was a solid one. Like always, I'll pay attention to the comments about the title and see if it's worth going back and picking up.
