The third weekly series is announced. I wonder if all three of these will actually last all they through their intended runs?

This is DC's C or D-List .

Paul Levitz who hasn't written anything good since stepping down as President of DC.

Marguerite Bennet who wrote the terrible Lois Lane, Lobo and Joker's Daughter one shots

And Johnson who has wrote everything from Supergirl to Transfomers without one memorable story to his name.

Surprised Nocienti, Lobdell or Christy Marx isn't amongst them. But I guess Harras's star is on the wane.

I'm not sure I've read an issue of the main Earth-2 series since Robinson left. I was disappointed by his departure.

BTW, I went back and looked up the map of Gotham City in No Man's Land 1999 to see if it matched the map in Batman #30. It did! There were a few cosmetic changes but it was the same! Kudos!

I'm guessing that Zero Year is replacing No Man's Land in the New 52 Continuity?

Which in turn raises the question, was Lex Luthor ever President now?

At this point, there is no indication that Lex was ever anything more than a businessman/scientist. I imagine that the Superman titles would have referenced it by now if he were ever President.

I enjoy Earth 2. I don't think that there are too many characters as it is supposed to encompass the entire world of heroes/wonders. At some point though, I would like to see them form an actual Justice Society.

I buy books two months behind so I have only read the first couple of Taylor issues. It is still well-written, but I would love to know what Robinson's plans for Green Lantern were.

He was suppose to be the Superman of Earth-2 IIRC and even had his own LOSH in Infinity Inc.

No Superman continuity was carried over except for Death of Superman...so no Lex is not President nor has he been in the 52 Verse...and Zero Year is not meant to be a retelling of No Man's Land. The black out and Riddler's plan seem to be new concepts of Snyder's.

But did No Man's Land ever happen in the new universe?

Did the Joker kill Gordon's wife?

Unless they say it did, no.

Gordon's first wife is alive and showed up in an recent arc. I don't think his second wife, Sarah Essen has been mentioned.

I believe this is the rule for the entire new 52. We are not supposed to assume that anything happened prior to Sept 2011 stories, unless explicitly told otherwise in continuity.

Such a simple rule, yet....

See, I would assume the opposite. Assume it happened until it's contradicted.

That only applies to GL and Batman. The only series that retained larger elements of their former continuity.

That's the thing we were told that Batman and Green Lantern continuities were not changing, while mostly everything else was rebooted. In the Kevin Smith Batman podcast, Scott Snyder said that he is writing under the assumption that everything that happened before still happened.
