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

If they go the space cop way with Earth One's Hawkman and Hawkwoman... No wait, the savage Hawkman, which should have been called the unreadable Hawkman probably cemented his origin completely.

Let's try that again...

If they had gone the space cop way, I could see some military directorate pragmatically pairing them together, like Russian sleeper agents sent to America in the 80s to demolish capitalism.

So they'll live in the 'burbs and be seduced by our consumer culture?

In the quote that CBR has all Didio said is that members of the Bat-family aren't allowed to get married. He never mentioned the rest of the DCU..... in the quote at least.
Which doesn't explain the Aquaman/Mera issue ..... Or Clark/Lois..... or Ollie/Dinah......
This makes sense regarding the Bat family, and I would agree with it. It makes better stories having your Bat characters lead difficult personal lives.

Ollie and Dinah just haven't met yet, but I believe that they will.

But what happened with Arthur and Meara?

Which was Scott and Barda's delio in the JLI.

(Seriously when is Season two of The American's starting?)

(Shit. 115 days.)

Despite the name, I've never really thought of Batwoman as part of the Bat-family. She doesn't operate with them, doesn't know their identities, and doesn't take part in their crossovers. She's about as related to Batman as Spider-Woman is to Spider-Man.
In the article Didio also says that she's going to be a major part of the Bat-family going forward.

Who is Didio blowing to keep his job as editor? What did DC do to deserve an editor that bad?

Bruce has interacted with Kate since he's been back, and she kind of has his approval, but yeah she's not really fully been embraced yet.


Yep. Diane Nelson is his boss

Dan Didio is actually the Publisher of DC Comics. As for who, maybe the CEO of Warner Bros.

Editor or Publisher, the guy is an embarrassment and an anchor dragging DC down.

Didio is actually Co-Publisher isn't he? Along with Jim Lee I believe.

Well I will give a thumbs up to Forever Evil and a 50/50 for the villian issues overall. It was either love or hate with them so far with none of them in the middle ground. Count Vertigo being right at the top and Darkseid being at the bottom.

I have to admit I am coming around to Green Lantern again. The Relic story line is starting to intrigue me and Green Lantern 23.1 actually added to the whole story quite well I thought.

As to the other Villain books that are part of my regular pull list, Superman 23.1, Flash 23.1 and Justice League 23.1 were all pretty decent, but I really didn't care for Batman 23.1 and felt Action Comics 23.1 was just so-so. I haven't read JLA 7.1 yet.
