If/when they reboot they need to actually commit to it though. None of the weak-assed most things reboot but a few things continue because they sell. Have the balls to blow it all up and start from scratch.
Yep. The best way is setting everything at "Year "0" and have a real plan.

Yep, he's just the former Robin. He and Arsenal are the only original Teen Titans to make the New 52 transition. Wally, Donna and Garth are in the land of neverwas.
Doesn't Garth exist in the Ravagers, or is it a different Beast Boy?
Beast Boy is Gar(field) Logan. Aqualad/Tempest is Garth
Ahh, sorry.

I would be quite happy if the whole Pandora storyline results in the New 52 characters re-remembering their Post-Crisis continuity

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

^ That most likely won't occur. They should have rebooted clean, but we all know the reasons why that didn't happen by now since it's been repeated several times in the thread. I doubt that we will return to the previous DCU. They'll just continue to do what they've been doing since the relaunch and tweak and retcon where they feel is needed (even though it isn't in some cases).

The only way that we might get another relaunch or even reboot is if sales completely topple. They've had a slide...but not a collapse. Or if they feel they've reached the point where they were pre re-launch with the majority of their books, just not a few year or a few there that they can continue to replace like they've been doing so far.

Read Superman #21 and Justice League #21, the latter of which was the conclusion of the origin of Shazam. I thought it was pretty decent. I already like Mary Marvel...errr I guess we'll find out what they'll be calling them in the New 52. Superman is worth buying alone for the Rocafort art. Hector Hammond is awake, and part of the Hive Queen's latest scheme.

I have less than 0 interest in Shazam and what was going on in the back-up stories, so I didn't care for this issue of JL. I was mixed on the Batman/Superman title, I really hope it gets better. Can't say I'm much of fan of the artwork in it either.

I really enjoyed Aquaman #21, Mera returns home and is branded a traitor, the plot to free Orm kicks up a bit and to a lesser extent still likd Justice League Dark #21 this past week. I may reevaluate JLD when the next arc ends and what I hear about the upcoming arc.

Had mixed feelings on Batman/Superman #1. Not sure why...I thought the writing was pretty decent and enjoyed Jai Lee's art. I guess I expected it to wow me and it didn't.

Same here, we'll see where it goes. Though, again, the art didn't wow me too much.

The background stuff Lee did was outstanding. It wasn't Before Watchmen quality though...just a little off. Like he was trying to get used to drawing Batman and Superman. Catwoman looked great though. As did Bruce and Clark themselves. It was just a little off to me.

I loved the art but thought the story was all over the place and not the greatest start for a brand new title.

Our first look at Trinity War. I am starting to get a "Kingdom Come" "Twilight of the Superheroes" vibe from this for some reason.

Damian Wayne to return. Well, not really. "A possible future that may never be", spining out of Batman 666.
