How come in issue 1 of red hood In the outlaws, Roy recalls the past Titan team, but in the ravagers #o beast boy didn't have his powers till n.o.w.h.e.r.e captured him, so how does that even make sense...

There's a lot of that going on in the DCnU.

Yup.

But the old DCU contradicted itself. As does Marvel's 616, etc etc etc.

Somewhere along the lines, we as fans have grown to expect a seamless, sprawling continuity. While a sense of continuity is helpful and can lead to good stories where ideas from one book cross into another, we don't need perfection. It's simply not possible when there are so many books being published at such a prodigious pace. If the stories are great, that's wonderful, that's what really matters, rejoice!

Marvel 616 didn't contradict itself until AFTER DC's writers and Editors highjacked it. 2001-2012

But you'd expect something with decades of continuity to have contradictions. It's far less excusable for a new universe that's only a year old to have as many if not more contradictions than the older continuity.

That's the New 52 for you: a place where you find contradictions, unnecessary character reboots, and terrible decisions running rampant.

The whole robin thing pissed me off at first 4 robins in 5 years? Then they wanna say there was the orginal teen titans but yet the new Ravager issue just put that down...sounds like this wa poorly planned I'm extremely dissappointed

@Crash_Recovery: You don't think the New 52 is a little to new to be making these types of mistakes and paradoxes? Also... this one is pretty huge.
