Since last September we have seen a good part of the universe of the New 52. Not much story arc but i think enough heroes and aspect of the world to think of this :
For what insane reason would you be a vilain on earth right now ?
I think the people who are making the great decision of harmonization between all the title of the new 52 should think about this.
First the introduction of wildstrom characters in the DC universe. It could be nice. But why stormwatch/the authority ? If you have ever read one book with wharacters like the engineer, jack hawksmoor, midnighter and apollo something should be tilting in your brain. After two days on earth minimum they would raid gotham city or nuke the arkham asylum. Yes the new stormwatch is about big menace, alien and thing like that but we have seen apollo killing child molester, midnighter enjoying this fighting the son of deathstroke with no problem and the two told that they are more interested in street vilain. If they were the good old character from stormwatch i think Bruce wayne would be really bored his night.
Even this i could accept it, the can be different characters and live different life. I am okay with this. But what about greater vilain, darkseid, the antimonitor, superboy prime (who will maybe return with starro if we take a look at the cover of justice league #9), Lobo and every other ? If i were them then i will stay away from earth. Seriously this was my big problem before in the DC universe and now it is worse. I will take Darkseid since he is right now in justice league and because he is one with a brain. So darkseid after being defeated by the justice league want to take is revenge 5 years laters. I has plan to defeat the justice league. No superman, batman, wonder woman, hall jordan, cyborg, aquaman or flash. I have bad news for him, now we have kid flash, other green lantern, captain atom, firestorm, martian manhunter, supergirl, superboy, apollo, jenny quantum, jack hawksmoor and maybe later the doctor from the authority.
This is too much ! We have now even more godly character that can punch a hole in the reality or zap every vilain they want. I know that this universe is young but i hope that someone smart notice this in DC because having great characters is nice but this is dangerous if they want to stay in the hero/vilain business.
