I was kind of surprised by this too, since they already have Batwoman, and they seemed to be trying to emphasize her quite a bit in the New 52.
Sounds like the French knight in Monty Python's Grail: "I don' tink e'll be verra keen. E's already got one, you see."

Today is a biggish week: Justice League Dark (title's on notice now); All Star Western; Aquaman; Batman Inc.

Aquaman: Still loving the artwork in this book, story-line is moving along okay.

The Flash: Another book with fantastic artwork but here I think the story has stalled a bit.

The Dark Knight: The "Night of the Owls" crossover event continues. Not too bad of an issue here, somehow TDK has turned out to be a decent Batman book.

Superman: I think this book has really turned around since it started, probably having to do with the new creative team in it. I think the relationship and such between all of the characters is working out nicely.

I think I'll drop Batman: The Dark Knight. I was going to get this week's issue, but I can't remember what happened in the last one, so I figured it was time to move on. They never did follow up on the White Rabbit revelation from #7 if I remember correctly.

Not quite, but right now they're mostly dealing with the Night of the Owls.

People bringing up Alan Scott makes me realize something. In the New52 verse, there must be no Jade or Obsidian, also. This means that huge portions of Kyle Rayner's backstory are all gone, now.

That's my biggest problem with the reboot thus far missing characters, I'm still waiting for Metamopho and Dr. Fate to show up.

If Alan Scot does turn out to be gay the biggest threat to Jade and Obsidian being his kids is his young age not his orientation, he could either adopt or have in vetro done if they wanted his kids to be biological. I wonder what the bigots would say to that?

The only problem I have with it being Alan is that I don't think of a parallel universe version of a Green Lantern or any Lantern to be iconic outside of comic readers.

He's not alone, most of the New 52 have new "lives". We'll find out what those lives were like when we do. That's actually part of the fun.

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

Read Batman Inc Volume Two #1 and thought it was fantastic. I've been thinking about Talia's Ubu-Batman. I know earlier in the thread someone suggested it could be a grown Damian clone, but I wonder...could it be Bane? I know he's been used in Dark Knight or whatever it was, but that's never stopped Morrison before. Bane has history with Talia so it's possible if unlikely. I wonder when this story takes place since Bruce mentioned both the Spook and Nobody incident. It obviously takes place sometime after the first New 52 Batman and Robin arc but possibly several months prior to the Batman Court of Owls arc.

For some reason, I think the "outed" character could be Hawkgirl on Earth-2: iconic in the sense that she was in the animated JLA, and she hasn't shown up yet except on the cover for Earth 2 #3. Unless we know it's a male character?

If it's Alan Scott, and Jade/Obsidian were to still exist, it would have to be his genes for Jade to make any sense.

I was reading an article and it said the "new gay character" will emerge joining Batwoman among the ranks of DC gay characters. I don't know if Batwoman was the only gay character the writer knew or if the writer knows it's going to be female. It sounded implied to me the character was pointing to being female from the way that article read.

I'm actually a little relieved by that (I missed the pronoun used); if DC is going to make a statement, having another hot female lesbian probably isn't the way to do it.
