I thought Lost Days was already significantly referenced in Red Hood and the Outlaws.

As I said, "even if the bat-books were largely unaffected." That doesn't mean they were immune to change. Consider that Batman and Green Lantern interacted numerous times with characters who no longer exist.
Or, rebooted to be ALMOST the same as they were. But, yeah, its a reboot--even if somethings didn't change that much.

If you look at it as a clean slate, its pretty consistent.
Yeah, it seems to me now that it's basically an across the board reboot. Even in terms of the Bat-, Lantern-, and Legion-continuities. Sure, they may keep more of their histories, in the broad strokes, but at least some details have changed. In Batman's case, there's not any more of a clean slate than post-CoIE or Zero Hour. Most of the history may be there, but some points have been altered.

In Green Lantern's case, I doubt much more than the previous (post-Rebirth) volume can be counted on... Much the same with the Legion. Little can be counted upon as concrete prior to Levitz' return; even the Geoff Johns stuff immediately prior to that is no longer a comfortable fit, what with the changes to Superman.

I think that bugs me the most... In the couple of years between the 'real' Legion's return in The Lightning Saga and Flashpoint, we got to the point that practically everything from the Silver age Legion history was in continuity again. Now it's up in the air. Of course, as a long time Legion fan, I should be used to that by now...

I think its safe to assume if its on the page, then it happened. If not, then MAYBE it happened, maybe it didn't.

Even if it's on a page that doesn't necessarily mean that it "happened", the Tim stuff in "Teen Titans" is point and case as the Bleeding Cool article indicated a couple weeks back.

^ All we need now is the new Professor Zoom to appear in the Nu52 or did I miss it already?
Be funny if it was the Zoom from the old continuity. He'd be scratching his head and wondering why Iris and Barry aren't married and why Tim was never Robin.

Well, that specific example is a little 1984ish. But this is where we are with being continuity obsessed. All the ts must be crossed. And if there was no T, go back and draw one in for the trade.

I doubt we will see Zoom any time soon in the 52'Verse since Thrawne was such a big part of Flashpoint in manipulating Barry. I suspect that if DC decides to use Zoom in the 52'Verse it will be for a major story event.

NuZoom who we have never met before indiginous to the new 52, or the Zoom that survived Flashpoint amazed at what has become of the world?

Or even a new version of the Hunter Zoloman Reverse Flash might even be cool.

i don't care for New 52 Billy either. i'm sure he'll learn his lesson by the time Black Adam starts causing trouble.

Justice League #0: With Lee gone, I'm giving the book another shot. I've missed most of the Captain Mar....err Shazam stuff so far, but it kinda feels like I've missed nothing at all. I still don't like just how nasty Billy Batson is. This one may take some getting used to. Oh also: The Question! Eeeeeeeeeeh

Wonder Woman #0: Now that was interesting and unique. The story is told in a Golden Age style. The writing is exposition heavy, and the dialogue is hokey. They captured to feel perfectly. I mean, it's a straightforward and simple tale, but as a Golden Age homage it's aces. This was a seriously fun read.

Green Lantern New Guardians #0: In what freaking way is this a 0 issue? This is New Guardians #13 in all but name. It's nice to get Carol back into the fray, and I'm glad they've changed the ridiculous outfit. It's just...this is Zero Month, and this book is just continuing its story without any regard for that.
