Alright, Curi can disagree here, but I think this deserves it's own thread.

So basically the DCU is going back to swaure one with 52 of it's titles, and (straight from Jim Lee) that about 50 characters are getting their costumes redesigned (ala wonder woman).

They plan on starting with Justice League and going back to the original line-up on August 31, but beyond that there is no master list of when the titles will be released and what changes have/will be made.

Although this is nice to give readers and new readers new approaches and jump on points, the fact that it says costumes will be redesigned and that some of the characters are going to be given new origins scares the piss outta me.

Thoughts?

Same thing I said when Feli posted it, I hope they don't cancel Batgirl.
Only DC titles I buy are Batman Inc, which is obviously off limits, Detective Comics which they would never dare to start renumbering and jock, snyder and franciavilla have confrimed they'll still be on the book for a while, and Batgirl, which is easily my favourite, and in the eyes of moneygrubbers, easily dispensable.

Weren't they already in the process of doing that? I thought it was the whole point of that "Superman: Earth One" title.

Yeah, this is replacing all the books and changing companywide continuity.

I don't know, there's still a lot of questions that need to be answered in regards to how this whole reboot is going to work out, but I really want to know what in god's name is going to happen with Batman Inc, and if stories previously released before the reboot will still remain in continuity.

Then again, if events like Blackest Night, Batman R.I.P., and others remain in this new continuity, then what the fuck is DC doing ?!

According to this, it's not a reboot, even though the author is a complete bitch.

Nothing will happen to one of the best things that happened to batman this decade. Worry not.


Now, MORRISON WRITING SUPERMAN? YOU HAVE MY MONEY, DC.

This isn't going to be like The Matrix: Reloaded, is it?

I have to admit, though, Keanu Reeves might make a pretty good Krypton.

Edit: Is this an actual image for the reboot or something else? It was on one of the web pages for the story.

It looks cool in any case.

Edit 2: Yes it is.

Oh, so Wonder Woman is wearing silver instead of gold now? Interesting.

On one hand there is no such thing as a "bad Jim Lee drawing", it looks really good.

But I hate it that most of the characters look horribly young, worst is Superman who looks 16.

I'm scared. The DCU scares and confuses me. I thought everything was undone and redone not all that long ago with Final Crisis? I'm so confused. I was just trying to get in to the "universe" as most of the Batman stuff I've read hasn't been in continuity with the Universe (so far as I can tell), and this redesign feels even more daunting now that I'm just beginning to find my feet with the DCU. Suit redesigns/new origins are a bit worrying. Surely they can't touch Batman's origin? It's so well established now...

What is the good Batgirl run? (not implying that it's all bad, genuinely haven't read any of it/haven't heard anything about any of it)

Well, if it's getting cancelled it can't be that good.

Know what pisses me off? They are restoring the original Justice League lineup... but with Cyborg instead of Martian Manhunter... what the fuck?

This week... MaliciousMal creeps on Dr. B! Next week... his sights shift to WJK!

Well, Martian Manhunter can have his own title AND be in the group book... it's happened before
