So lemme get this straight, the entire continuity is going to jump forward five years? So that they've now been around for ten years? IE, exactly the way it was before Flashpoint? Which was such a terrible thing that they had to erase/alter the entire continuity?

We don't know very much about The Five Years Later gimmick/arc if it will be permanent or just September's monthly event and a weekly book attempt again...but yeah if it is a plot device to fast forward things, then just exactly has been the point of the relaunch? I thought one of the main things was to establish a "fresh, new, and young" universe so to draw "new" readers? It'll be interesting to see what this actually is for when we get further details.

I just love how they come off as though they honestly believe marriage is some "cure all" for characters who have tough times. Like marriage will give you infinite happiness and pleasure.

They've obviously never been married.

Considering that would make it the first time ever DC allowed the old continuity to come back as a major focus I doubt thats happening.

Year Zero.

How odd to first have two events running at the same time, and second to have this 5 years back on the cusp of an anticipated 5 years forward.

Actually we do - I'll have to find the link but it's just for a single month - the weekly series will then carry on five years later but the series will all return to the now.

Obviously the future we see we will never get...

It was actually in an Admiral_Young post in this very thread: Link

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/11/...rom-dc-comics/

Bleeding Cool has been running article after article about this project, which will see every New 52 book in September 2014 go five years into their future, before coming back to the present the next month, but leaving a weekly series written by Dan Jurgens, Brian Azzarello, Keith Giffen and Jeff Lemire.

Trinity War may have been a bust, but Forever Evil has been a ball so far. Lex Luthor, Bizarro, Black Manta, Black Adam, and Captain Cold teaming up to take on the Crime Syndicate. I like where this is going


Anyone else get the feeling that Johns is just as annoyed as fans are about the Rogues getting powers, and decided to take them back? Cold got depowered, and I assume will be crafting a new cold gun if his comment about needing thirty-two minutes and an appliance store are anything to go by.

I wasn't being serious, but more making a commentary about DC's indulgence for changing continuity. I still don't like the ten years later idea though--I would prefer something like 52 Earths in September if they want a gimmick.

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

It's far from an indulgence. In both cases where continuity was rebooted (FP, COIE), this was precipitated by a change in upper management at DC Comics. Rebooting the continuity was a signal by the new executives at DC they were also trying to reset their broader strategy. In the case of COIE, they were successful and knew that the reboot with only one part of a larger strategy to hook in new readers. What DC after FP really lacked was a larger strategy and a serious attempt to try and maintain the large number of new readers not to mention any means of quality control.

Probably set up for the next team on Flash.
