Does the New 52 start a dangerous precedent with the tossing of past stories into the garbage? It seems like a lack of respect for the fans as well as a lack of respect for the characters. Take the new Batgirl #0 for example. It completely erases the entire history of the oracle. What kind of message does this send fans? How is this supposed to inspire confidence in the product? Who's to say if New 52 experiences poor sales down the line they won't just erase them from history to.
