The New 52

So, I have been keeping up with my news on the New 52 as it comes out and I just noticed that there's only been talk of two technical villains (Deathstroke & Sinestro), so my questions comes in to ask about other fan-favorite villains. I mean I wanna see the New 52's version of the Joker, Clayface, Ra's al Ghul, Lady Shiva, hell, even Mr. Zsasz. I just want to know why aren't the bad guys getting any spotlight?

Read Detective Comics # 1 ;)

From the look of Batman #1, a lot of his villians are getting shown, plus Luthor was kind of big in Action Comics and we know Darkseid is coming in Justice League. I'd give it a few issues as most of the first issues are completely reintroducing the new version of that character. Rome wasn't built in a day, etc etc.

This and Joker did appear in Detective.

I'd pick up Joker and Ra's for sure.

Sinestro and Deathstroke aren't villains per say and they are also the stars of their own books so there's that...

Same goes for the members of the suicide squad

I also don't mind that most writers are creating new villains, what Lobdell said of the Teen Titans could easily be applied to the rest of the DCU. The last 20 years has mostly been a "greatest hits recopilation album" using all of the fan-favorite villains over and over

I'm enjoying reading about the new villians. Sure, I love the old Batman villians but I know they're still there. New characters are always fun to see anyways.

Lady Shiva was mentioned in the last issue of Nightwing. Maybe it's a sign we'll see her in person.
