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

Yeah, that sounds pretty dumb. I'm not a huge reader of Aquaman, but even with my limited familiarity I understand how important their marriage was as part of the Blackest Night/Brightest Day arc. I think what they did as a big reveal for Mera was good.

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

Buddy and Ellen have separated.

Scott and Barda probably aren't married as it's early in their relationship. (They weren't married in the original Mister Miracle run until the last issue.)

Ralph and Sue are nowhere to be seen

Katar and Shayera aren't a couple anymore and weren't married in the new 52

Ray Palmer isn't the Atom and I don't recall seeing a Jean Loring.

Do Ollie and Dinah even know each other?

Heck, Ollie and Hal don't even know each other. DC isn't just killing marriages. They're killing bromances, too. With all that's happening, Dick Grayson sure could use his best friend, right now. Oh wait, he doesn't even freaking exist any more, and neither does the team where they met.

Where is Mister Miracle in the New 52?

I looked him up on wikipedia and that's useless "flying around Gotham".

Frakk.

There's always Roy. Weird that of the original Titans, only Dick exists in the New 52. (Roy joined the team after Dick, Wally, Garth and Donna formed the TT)

^Which makes no freaking sense, since he has never been associated with that team.

But as a God, he can wander between worlds effortlessly.

He's not the flashiest of New Gods, so you kinda for get the basic powerset, tools and general information about the universe common to all the new Gods.

He's Darkseid's son.

That has to come into play at some point.

Pretty sure that just a set up for a crossover between the JLs and The NYTJS. Remember Darkseid had a hand in creating both teams and currently several Apokolipsians are trapped on both Earths.

Which may happen in approximately six or seven years with the rate that Earth-2's story progression was going.

In the quote that CBR has all Didio said is that members of the Bat-family aren't allowed to get married. He never mentioned the rest of the DCU..... in the quote at least.
Which doesn't explain the Aquaman/Mera issue ..... Or Clark/Lois..... or Ollie/Dinah......

All these characters are still young. Maybe marriage is a bad idea at their ages.

Despite the name, I've never really thought of Batwoman as part of the Bat-family. She doesn't operate with them, doesn't know their identities, and doesn't take part in their crossovers. She's about as related to Batman as Spider-Woman is to Spider-Man.

Gotham has a strict no marriage law. It's about the only one that the cops can enforce.
