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

Oh, I saw them. They do look good, but they were also prototypes. The released figure might end up looking different from the prototype. I do want one, but until I see it in the store, I'll decide which one to get.

Oh yeah...for prototypes though I was impressed.

The Daemonite Lord Helspont is appearing in Superman #8. This has been teased in some books. Not being much of a Wildstorm fan outside of the Authority I don't know how much of a big deal this is, or if it is one at all.

It's not. He's not so great. Xerxes totally kicked his ass.

I thought not. Didio and company talk here about the New 52 Verse's first crossover. Some might have some interest in this.

I'll be reading the Frank side of the crossover.
Not buying an extra title, sorry DC.

I still await the announcement of Crisis on the New 52! summer crossover that'll not only tie into all the 52 series, but also launch 52 more new ones! Am I cynical? Yes! Am I wrong? Probably not that much.

^ You're probably not far off actually. Unless these Watchmen prequels...errrr rumoured prequels are their huge 2012 event. It's very possible we'll see the first New 52 Verse major crossover (ugh even I'm hesitant about that) and the next wave. I expect cancellation news in the next couple of months...unless they REALLY wanna try to keep all 52 books afloat. I also have a theory that Purple Lady will feature heavily in any kind of major crossover.

This I can take. Even line wide x-overs like Batman, I can handle, but I really fear for the day where we have to go through an Infinite Crisis type event again with half a year of build up and then another half a year telling us about the new status quo.

I hope that we can hold off on those for at least a few years.

So, apparently Kid Flash raided Robin's closet for a new costume.

I think it was mentioned that the Purple Lady was going to be dealt with in Justice League. But, who knows?

I largely agree. That's why I liked Flashpoint as it was completely self-contained and only had tie-ins that didn't break into the weeklies and were not needed to be read to following the main event. Blackest Night was sinful in that manner!

Not just the costume (and yes, it is Tim's pre-Red Robin costume). Kid Flash borrows... erm... steals a bunch of Tim's clothes in issue #4.

I haven't been following Teen Titans at all, but is that meant to be Bart's permanent new costume? Or just a temporary one as a gag?

Knowing Bart's characterization probably just a temporary one as a gag.
