Nerys, the Mustang has never been revived, its been in constant production since 1964. You must be thinking of the Camaro.(Sorry Mustang guy here.)
I also think they care very much about the under 25 market. A new block of toons starting up, digital releases of comics, restarting a universe, all points towards looking to grab the next generation of fans.

I don't think DC or Marvel cares about the under 25 market anymore.
So where do they think these "new readers" are going to come from?

Well 25 is probably not the right "cut off" age but since G-Man mentioned it I decided to use it.

The toons are a way to introduce the characters to younger folks in the hope that they will buy the comics when thy get older. The comics don't seem to be geared for the same age group. They seem to be looking at people in their teens, twenties and older for comics. Which is different from when I was a kid. I discovered comics and cartoons at the same time. I don't think a lot of kids in high school or younger read the magazines/websites that the previews get given to. Digital is just a smart way to distribute anything. I read my comics digitally. Don't even recall the last physical one I bought.

So, basically, DC's latest "innovation" is to remake what Gerry Conway and Paul Levitz did 30+ years ago in "All Star comics" with JSA and the Super Squad.
Squadron, but yeah. I liked the one where Billy Batson was a Nazi.

I like the one that gets like 25mpg but has 400hp. I'll never be able to afford it! Probably a Nazi plot.

It was "the Super Squad" ( thankfully for a very short time) What you're thinking of is the All-Star Squadron.

It's supposed to be rendered "the proof of the pudding is in the eating"; i.e. you may have baked a Yorkshire pudding correctly according to the recipe, but you won't know whether it's any good until you taste it.

Generations of illiterates have mangled it into the shortened phrase.

No, I don't know what this has to do with comics.

Yep President Superman is back! As someone mentioned before looks like they're getting ready to finally launch Multiversity this summer.

Yep, we have four versions of Superman on DC covers for May, five if you count the Superman Family kids title.

And, no red trucks in sight!

Well Superman can respond faster than the Fire Department.

There aren't really six Supermen. Just Supermen in different points of time really Or realities in the case of President Superman and Smallville Superman.

Oh, yeah. That was Roy Thomas. My bad.

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

Is it just me, or is this thread starting to die a bit? Perhaps the initial lustre of the relaunch wearing thin now? I know for me it definitely has. I'm down to about six or seven books. Anyway, my pulls for tomorrow are:

-Batman #6
-Supergirl #6
-Wonder Woman #6 (Cliff Chiang is back!)
