I seem to recall Buddy's daughter having some sort of powers post Morrison.

I read my first DC issue of the week last night, Animal Man #2.
As I noted earlier he's not a character I've followed and only aware of in vague terms.
Ergo, I'm just on the ride so far. Issue #2 was interesting but was more Animal girl than really about Buddy. Have Buddy's kids, or in this case, little girl been shown like this before? I'm seeing parallels of a sort in how the Swamp Thing family dynamic has at times been shown over the years. Curious to see what 'The Red' tree has in store next month.
I haven't read anything of Animal Man other than 52, but his daughter was born when he had his powers

Thanks for the insight guys. So then this development with his little girl, name escapes me, is something new it seems. Hey, ground floor right? Even though Buddy is a carryover from the Brightest Day events at least they are not rehashing things(it seems) from other eras of the character.

He was also in Brightest Day?

I thought it was only Swamp Thing.

Yeah, I don't believe he was. Last time Buddy was in anything important was 52, iirc. Presumably if Scott Lobdell had been writing it he'd have been DPing Starfire with Adam Strange.

So, having leafed through the majority of the DCNU books, these are the ones I actually care to go to the second issue with...

the GL books, the major Bat books, the Super books, JLA, JLI, Aquaman, Flash, WW

That's quite a fair number of comics, there.

I'm sticking with everything in month two that I bought the first month. After that we'll see.

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

I've decided that I'll be continue the following:

-Action Comics
-Aquaman
-Batgirl
-Batman
-Batman, Inc (when it returns)
-Batman and Robin
-Batwoman
-Catwoman
-Justice League (at least until the origin arc is done)
-Justice League International
-Legion of Superheroes
-Legion of Superheroes: Secret Origin (when it starts next month although I don't think it's considered part of the main 52 group)
-Red Hood and the Outsiders
-Superboy
-Supergirl
-Teen Titans
-Stormwatch

More books than I thought. Some of these will eventually be cut down as we proceed through the first arcs.

Believe it or not, I'm gonna buy Legion Lost again. Because I am incapable of learning. Can I just give Pete Woods $3 and cut out the middle man?

Other than that:

Batwoman
Animal Man
Flash
Supergirl, but 3 only if 2 is significantly "more" than 1
Wonder Woman

Probably done with Action Comics. I'm not sure yet. Justice League, as much as I enjoyed it, is hard to justify. If Superman beats up Batman in a hilarious manner, let me know, please.

Yeah, I think that covers it.

Andy Kubert is doing a two issue arc with Superboy and the Legion on Action with Morrison.

http://dcu.blog.dccomics.com/2011/10...cs-the-new-52/

Will be interesting to see Morrison writing them.
