^ Yep. Morrison has described them as being "nerds". They're best friends and are into all the latest "kewl" stuff.

I certainly hope that DC is not building up to crossover where we have to buy twenty different books a month to follow the story.

How many people have been the Time Trapper? I am familiar with Cosmic Boy and Superboy Prime (which was a ridiculous notion, IMO). Who else?
I hope so too. The whole reason I started reading and buying again was because I don't have to keep up with all of the crap. The Crisis', Flashpoint, War of the Supermen, Grounded and everything else in between. I just want to read a few books and thats it. If you have to have crossovers, we can have them in Justice League.

Yeah, I like the idea of Clark actually having a friend who's a little more identifiable than an occasional spear-carrier in one or two panels of a comic, designated as "Clark's friend." Olsen is a long-running character in his own right.

The other main one is Lori Morning. Lori was the female identity of the Trapper created after Zero Hour. It seemed that Lori was on the path to becoming Glorith (the Trapper's lieutenant) who would then later become the Trapper (meaning the Trapper was her own lieutenant in a past time frame).

It's one of many ideas that never came to fruition in the post Zero Hour Legion (often called "the Archie Legion"). The other big idea left on the table was that the Archie Legion R.J. Brande was actually a 1,000 year old Martian Manhunter in human disguise.

Would not surprise me.
I mean look at JLA #1, the clearest "still writing for the trade" type of "old school management" being done. It's things like this that have people more than cautious of accepting this "new jump on point" as something legit and new. It's by the people who frelled up the old, according to themselves, universe(es).

They know, KNOW not everyone is going to buy all 52. So, how do you jack up 2012 3rd Q profits so the year-to-year doesn't look like a total hemorrage? Have a story that involves the mystery lady and DOES cross into all 52 titles for at least 2-3 months.

I think those are out next week. I could be wrong though. You almost got me excited. I thought I had Nightwing and Batman to look forward to.

If all 52 are still around deep enough into 2012 in order to be reflected in Q3 profits, I'll be amazed.

They KNOW not all 52 will be around. It's absurd to think THEY think all 52 will be around. They are sure on a few titles: Action, Detective, Superman, Batman, probably JL, GL, The Flash, and Wonder Woman, but all the others... I'm sure in the next few months they will start making decisions which will get cancelled (I'm looking at you Hawk and Dove) and they have books that will replace them.

In a year or so, there will be a more stable number of books, but this is a BIG IDEA, a BIG PUSH, so, yeah, lots of titles. And so far, it's working. But, things will settle.

They are hoping for a new normal though.

This is all built into the costing model, they know that pretty much everything they launch will be cancelled or relaunched at some stage - the trick is to cancel them while they are still profitable.
