I thought the New 52 was rather successful, but I suppose long time fans aren't happy about it and I can't much blame them. To just change your entire unverse was bound to be controversial and p!ss off alot of people.

@Blood1991: The issue with the new52 is that everything they've done could've been done in the previous continuity rather easily and still not eliminated so many fan favorite characters.

True in some aspects, but this is a fresh start for characters who weren't given much of a chance despite being incredibly well know like Aquaman and Wonder Woman. My biggest issue is that some characters were put on this train with clear tracks to success, while others were thrown in a creepy guys van and are being hauled off to who knows where. Characters I love have been abused and been redone poorly in my opinion.

*COUGH* Harley Quinn, Catwoman and Poison Ivy *COUGH* I could continue, but I think we can all nname at least a couple of characters who we don't feel are being handled well.

Agreed. Because of the New 52, I tried characters and series that I probably never would have given a second glance (Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Frankenstein, etc.), and some of those have proven to be among my favorite books to read each month. So I'm thankful for that--but at the same time, there are some characters that have really gotten the short end of the stick, in my opinion.

Other than New Teen Titans 7 not being canon anymore, I still can't bring myself to care about these continuity changes, not matter how horrible they are.

I wonder if DC can take a hint...

LOL, my God that is just great, I wish I got to vote on it. Hopefully DC takes the hint.

Why did they yank it out? That's even more embarrassing. If they were proud of their product, they should stand by it and leave the poll up.

Yikes... Doubtful, but hopefully DC will learn a little bit from this.

If sales are good, there's no reason on earth for DC to "revert".

I think the votes don't match the reality. If people really hated the new DC52, they'd stop buying the books, right?

I think that people that have liked DC on Facebook are more likly long-term passionate fans that would more likely dislike change (I myself did not even know DC had a facebook page). Like Crash Recovery said we vote with our money and thats the only vote that matters. You have to remeber no matter how much your hobby means to you, it is still a business with paid employees that have familes who depend on your money, not your opinion.

I love (most of) the New 52. Don't ever get rid of Barry Allen.

I'm a new reader so new 52 is great for me and I like it. Dc should try satisfying OLD FANZ more also. make it a win-win!

I havne't participated in any polls, but I did vote with my wallet. I have not, and never will, bought any of the new DC comics. I am also avoiding any movies, TV shows, toys, or other products featuring these characters.

DC in the past year has made the New 52, released the Dark knight Returns, put out that god awful superman trailer, Arrow looks ok but generally not looked upon with love, tried to make a bad Wonder Woman show, and put out Batman Earth-1... in terms of creative quality they will never listen lol

I like the New 52, but this is hilarious.
