So...apparently this is going to jump forward in time by 5 years....or something like that.

Why is Terry there?

And is this another event already (or is it something like Villains month and is almost pointless)?

I've given up on fighting the new 52 for the time being anyway,so I'm just going to accept it and see what the heck this is about.....read the links.

It's a business decision like Marvel NOW! or All New Marvel NOW! Different but it is still a business idea.

Frankly Marvel's approacH makes more sense to MetH tHan 5 years later. Comics sHouldn't really Have dates, I mean tHey don't even follow real life time anyways. It's almost impossible witH issues coming out once a montH and sometimes tHose issues about one single day. Just saying, time/dates in comics sHould not really exist or be used mucH.

In 5 years DC will just do another reboot.

Doesn't make any sense, the time line is already confusing.

I read a few weeks ago that this is for Gimmick Month 2014(September). 5 Years seems a little too soon to set future stories in.

I swear to god,I hope so. And I hope that it's something like Young Justice.

Agreed

Yeah,I here that it's gonna be another thing like Villains month. Maybe it will fast forward in the future 5 years later (again...sigh. Young Justice did it right),and it will show how everyone is NOW in their individual issues.

I completely agree. I mean,as long as they can keep a consistent,linear timeline like with what Young Justice did (I hate saying that so often),but with tons of writers and stuff...I mean......

Another attempt to make DC's market share temporarily go up for a month. How quaint. I wonder if any of the stories will actually be good this time around.

what?

Posting multiple question marks is a way of saying "What?".

Yeah,but I want to know what they're confused about. It should be explained on the link.

And agreed,it's just another Villain's month

From everything I have read it is just another gimmick month. All the books will jump forward five years for a month then jump back. There also will be an ongoing series set 5 years in the future.

One more thing can people please stop moaning about The New 52 it has been 3 years already let it go DC ain't going to change it back.

So they aren't allowed to dislike the new 52 because it's been 3 years already? There is nothing wrong with people not liking the new 52,dude.

So, Marvel has infected DC with "gimmick" events? Have they brought back chromium covers yet?

I don't think Marvel's "infected" them. They do a stunt every September.

Interesting.

By the way,I also heard that this is just going to be a gimmick for a month. Typical. Which means that they are just going to skip ahead 5 years later in their universe for 1 month with each individual title,and then go back to the awful new 52.

So it's just a gimmick so they can get number one for 1 month out of 12.
