this does interest me, seeing the big three counterparts back on earth three. But I really want to see the old JSA crew! Also hoping for some Infinity Inc returns and maybe , any chance this is where Donna Troy and Wally West end up?

This anthology title is our best bet at exploring where some of our favorite characters or concepts ended up in the new DCU that aren't presently showcased in an ongoing. I am a fan of the Challengers and Ordway for sure. I share other's hopes for Metal Men and Doom Patrol.
I hope not. Warren/Angel/Archangel is my favorite x-man. Marvel has been so trigger happy the last ten years killing off major players, especially x-men (Banshee, Jean Grey, Nightcrawler, a ton of New X-Men Academy) that another death at this point seems the least original idea.
The irony in the fact that Cyclops' side is the "whatever it takes" side and Wolverine's is "let kids be kids," is that the younger two generations of mutants, New Mutant alumn and Hope and the five lights are on Cyclops side.
Since the New 52 was first announced there have been a few debated topics, some very poignant about the industry and some more minor about character and continuity: the extent of female artists in the comics industry; or Barbara Gordon walking and handi-capable heroes; or Supes and Lois never being married; or WW's pants, etc. All this seemed to fade into the background when Catwoman and Red Hood and the Outlaws comics started a whole new, imo, frank discussion about portrayal of women in comics. I am not going to ask about Starfire because about dozens of questions before mine asked it and you may answer it. My question is how did you feel about the reaction - were you surprised? Has it made an impact on how you approach the material going forward or do you just disregard it and keep to your story?
Hawk does mention in Hawk & Dove #1 that his brother died in the "crisis." He had died in the original crisis on infinite earths. So something somewhen still happened. I am of the mind set that I am able to just let certain past events remain vague and just enjoy what is happening now. Characters throughout new 52 make references to things, events, past teams. And so far that is enough for me (except I still want Donna and Wally).
I've been a Legion of Super Heroes fan since my first comic book of theirs with Superboy back in 1976. There have been so many reboots that I have become the consummate "go with the flow" type reader/fan because there was no choice. Granted, last three or four years I got my 80's pre crisis legion back with slight alterations and it only took 20 years. So for me it's not so much concern about when things happened but if they happened at all and if characters go MIA. I am glad this time around I didn't lose the Legion again because Supes got retro-fitted. But I am sad to see the "devastation" on the the Wolfman/Perez era New Teen Titans and missing Wally and Donna.
Aside from this film, I wouldn't mind a whole movie on Krypton. It seems prequels are gaining popularity as X-Men First Class and Rise of the Planet of the Apes have proven. Even the new re-imagining of Star Trek a few years ago was like "this is how they got together." Maybe people would argue that a movie about the politics, drama, and final days of Krypton wouldn't appeal to the general audience since there is no Superman. But I think it would be cool to see Krypton fleshed out. "The Last Days of Krypton!" And just because you know how it ends doesn't mean getting to it wouldn't be interesting. I mean if Titanic could gross what it did... and people all knew how that ended.
There is something I don't understand. The titles listed above are supposedly going to be exclusive to this platform. But I already purchased All Star Superman in single issue format via Comixology and DC's digital storefront. So if this goes exclusive to Kindle Fire, what happens to my purchase? Are these exclusive selections just graphic novels and collections? So I can buy the single issues via DC but the collected form via Kindle? I don't get how that is an upsell?
I started reading comics around age 10 in 78 and one of my first comic books off a spinner rack was the return of All Star Comics with continuous numbering from the previous pre-silver age series. Well, that is where I first discovered Power Girl and Huntress (Helena Wayne, Batman's daughter Earth-2). I've been stuck on both characters ever since and PG's most recent series I thought was a long overdue focus on the character.
