Billy Batson is an asshole. I don't care if that feature disappears altogether.

I like Batgirl. Babs is a well written character.
Agreed, Batgirl is a good title and the way Barbara is being written is just fantastic.

It's been a few years now since I've read any comics and I'm a little curious to try out some of the "rebooted" titles in this New 52 universe. I know The Lensman just asked for some recommendations not long ago and I'm not all that interested in looking through 3984 posts, but I did do some quick searches and came up with the following list of titles that have been recommended:
  • Action Comics
  • Aquaman
  • Batman (main title by Scott Snyder)
  • Batwing
  • Batwoman
  • Flash
  • Wonder Woman
Are there any other titles that current readers would suggest checking out?
Animal Man
Batman and Robin
Captain Atom

Swamp Thing, and Green Lantern New Guardians if you like Kyle Rayner.

Mera's pretty hot too.
The title is absurdly good for Aquaman stories, but it doesn't hurt the fact she is the best drawn female of the 52 reboot currently. Besides Starfire of course!

Or he's a young boy. They're kinda the same thing.

Yeah. And it looks like they are heading towards the "Flashpoint" version of Captain Mar... er SHAZAM.

I don't mind a teen with troubles, but a con artist teen... meh...

i always thought the best depiction of Marvel i've ever read was during the Kingdom Come series... Captain Marvel actually became likeable throughout that lol

I wouldn't mind too much if they brought back the dynamic they had in Flashpoint. That was really interesting.

I agree with Dennis don't like the ass hole version of Billy. I guess Johns like Lucas thinks that to be cocky you have to a douche as well. Billy's portrayal reminds me of Anakin.

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

I've always wondered why the the guy with 500 wives utter hedonism didn't kick in.

Or rapist Zoophiles and massmurderers like the rest of the Shazam Club?

Only the cluless purity of a tiny child could dull all that willingness to cut babies in half into workable heroism.

"Sigh"

Here's a pickle.

What if Billy still turns into big red cheese.

(Red cheese? Menstruating cows? Very careless. The first time it was careless until someone decided that red cheese was awesome.)

So we got a Banner vs Hulk thing going on here if Asshole Billy is retardedized down into Captain Marvel, that he has to sacrifice half his IQ to become godlike powerful and hen he has to resentfully deal with perfect clarity of his adventures after the fact.

Billy could hate being Captain Marvel while still being literally addicted to the power.

Damn, I'm a bitter pill.

So you guys would rather have the "gosh, golly, gee whiz" Billy back? The one with absolutely no room for character devolpment in the last 50 years? I would rather have a paint by numbers jerk to hero quest set up, than go back to that again.

The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men #5 to #7: I've been a big Firestorm fan for most of my life and want to stick with this title, but it's hard to hang on and I'm considering dropping it.

Justice League Dark #6 and #7: I like the idea of a team of heroes using magic more than I like the actual stories. The art at the beginning of the second arc is pretty impressive though. The panels are almost life-like oil paintings. What I don't like is that the story continues in I, Vampire. I'll probably just flip through the relevant issues of that title at the store. I have no interest in actually getting it. I don't like the vampire arc anyway. Glad it's coming to an end.
