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

The difference between what Grant did and what DC is doing is that he made Batman's history work and interesting. DC in my opinion is not making this five year timeline work. I'm merely just voicing my opinion. As others have clearly said it's really not a big deal. I just personally dislike it.

Interesting only a few books are being cancelled. I expected more. I am of course looking forward to the return of Batman Incorporated. The war against Talia is going to be bonkers! Extremely pleased that Chris Burnham is returning as the artist. Batman looks like he's wearing his New 52 costume. Might check out Earth 2.

It just struck me as I was reading the latest issue: I wonder if THE SHADE mini takes place on Earth 2? His ties to the golden age and Starman seem to suggest this as a possibility.

Also, another thought: if Power Girl is trapped here on New Earth (along with the Huntress) then how does she tie to the un-powered Karen Starr that appeared in MR. TERRIFIC?

^ That's the question isn't it? I'm assuming it'll be an alternate Power Girl.

The concept of Earth-2 doesn't thrill me, but I am looking forward to the JSA being in a monthly again.

So long as Power Girl is back, I don't care. Maybe that Karen Starr isn't PG at all, or perhaps she is PG and she somehow gets trapped on Earth2 in the final issues of Mr Terrific.

Karen knows Mr. T is close to a breakthrough where the multiverse is concerned and is sticking very close to him. I haven't read the comic, but that is my guess.

I'll have to double check but I think the Huntress mini has her mentioned as Bertinelli. She is in Naples, Italy to check on her family's holdings. Ergo, she can't be Wayne.

That interview is full of retcon sounding speak already. "That Bertinelli is in there as a tease." This has facepalm written all over it.

To be established immediately as a pseudonym per Levitz, sorry.

I did, I still smell a rat. I bought the first two issues then decided to wait on the TPB.
If it's Wayne I don't care.

Levitz isn't cut out for writing anymore.

The harder he tries, the more embarrassing it turns out.

Well, in fairness, when the Huntress mini was announced, it said that it connected to the an upcoming JSA title (which, at that point, was already known to have something to do with Earth-2). Huntress being from Earth-2 shouldn't come as a surprise.

I didn't see that material. I showed up at my LCS and a Huntress #1 was on the shelf. News of her mini got lost to me with the deluge of all the nu52 material I guess.

I'm not a fan of the multi-Earth concept. I started reading a few years before '86 Crisis. Really just young enough to not really know I was reading other Earths. However the bulk of my reading DC came post-Crisis so all this nostalgia of taking things back to the way the now Editors grew up with things irks me. It was personal for them to retcon this all back so it feels personal that the characters I invested in for 20+yrs is now up in the air.
