Ugh, the Kyle and Carol romance is so stupid.

Agreed. I can't even pick up this book now because of it. And I used to be one of its biggest proponents. I actually think its part of the reason that sales have been steadily slipping to the point where the title is now below even Red Lanterns.

This books seems to have "Anime" feel to it. I don't mind if DC animation do Gotham Academy animated series. Glad to see DC do "light" book. Sometimes no need to have "dark and depressing" book

Dude...I had the exact same feeling when I was reading this. It really does feel like a school-life anime...and I mean that in the best way possible. It takes some of the good things about such an anime, like a mythology-rich, tightly communal setting, but then applies them to characters that are not annoyingly quirky and one-dimensional.

Hope the next movie they decide to do is based on a good story rather than another one of Johns' brainfarts.

They did. That's why they're making Throne of Atlantis. The fans loved it.

"Massive Collateral Damage and an Epic Battle"

Oh, so when Superman does it the movie sucks, but when it's anyone else then it's a reason to get excited?

This is different, it's being caused by the bad guys, and in the story it's clear the heroes care about the people who are being hurt, and try to prevent it.

And that is different from MOS.....how?? Maybe I missed it, but I don't remember Clark saying "I think I'm gonna wreck this building now, just for shits and giggles." Its not his fault he got knocked around by Zod. You're overestimating his control of the situation. And the whole point of the final scene where he killed Zod was to show how much he cared about people. He did it to save a family.

@zeeguy91: I don't know. The way they're coming off is that pre52 is actually a whole other earth. Which is weird because I thought it was just an altered timeline. My theory is that they're gonna say something like flash ran to another earth or something weird like that. You could be right though.

I doubt that they would do something that would make the last three years of continuity just not count. Its probably more likely that they'll merge the two, giving some heroes and teams their previous history back, but also keeping some of the more successful retcons from the New 52: Azzarello's Wonder Woman, Lemire's Green Arrow, etc.

So yeah the Old DCU is most likely coming back. But, I don't think they'll completely get rid of the N52. The latest issue of Future's End, FE: Booster Gold, and Superman Doomed really hint at that.

No, they're probably not going to bring the Pre-Flashpoint DCU back in its entirety (nor should they, really), but they are probably going to bring back some things or just retcon the current DCU to make it look more like the last (which would be smarter than bringing back the whole Pre-Flashpoint DCU). For example, they might bring back more of the old New Teen Titans history, such as Cyborg being a member before he joins up with the League as well as some of those other adventures. They also might bring back some of the previous Superman history, such as the Death of Superman saga. Again, all of these will probably be brought back with slight details altered, like Lois still not knowing Clark is Superman, and so on...

What seems most likely, though, is that they'll get rid of that five-year time frame thing, extending it to maybe eight or ten years.

What would make a lot of sense is if they just released a new "History of the DC Universe" like they originally did after the first Crisis alongside whatever event is coming our way.

If he does return, I hope DC takes him in a different direction. The DCAU Joker was PERFECT, he was fun, but he was still menacing and you could still hate him for the things he had done. The current Joker barely a character.

The DCAU Joker was fitting for a kids' cartoon, but not for much else. I'd take the psychotic killer, who views chaos and the death and suffering of others in comedic light, from the Dark Knight, Killing Joke, Death in the Family, and Death of the Family over the "crazy but still funny" clown that was featured in the DCAU.

Did you not see Return of the Joker?

Yeah. I did. The most gruesome thing there was what was done to the Joker.

I STILL don't (and never will) forgive Snyder for Joker in Zero Year, but I do want Joker back, just not for a while. He's my favorite villain, but he's just been used to much.

Just curious, but for what? I heard people were upset that Snyder had given Joker a definitive identity before becoming Joker (the identity of the Red Hood leader). However, if those people had actually paid attention to the back-ups in Batman, they'd know that the real Red Hood leader was found dead, stuffed in an oil drum after what went down at the A.C.E. Chemical factory. Therefore, it can be concluded that we still don't know the real identity of the Joker.
