General DC New 52 Thread

Eternal Crisis of the Pantsless Superheroes. Like them or hate, crises are a big part of the DCU. You can discuss them alongside books like Secret Six and other events like Green Lantern: Blackest Night.

He hasn't appeared in the New 52 yet, so we don't know.

He only had a one page cameo in the first issue and there really isn't anything that "showed" him to be gay. I think Issue #2 is the one where they broadcast his sexuality.
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer.

And either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives

Oh ok, I thought it was odd that I missed something that seemed obvious to everyone else. I'm guessing people are hearing about this through solits then?

Eh, I'm ok with this. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the pre-launch JSA as much as anyone. And although they're the Golden Age versions of those characters, once the modern characters like Hal, Barry, and Wally took the spotlight, Jay and Alan just seemed to be added to the mythos arbitrarily. Alan was a Green Lantern, but not a "real" GL. And Jay had no real connection to Barry or Wally but because he was a Flash with the exact same origin (mostly) he had to be added somehow. Honestly, it felt alittle forced.

So yeah, let them be the GL and Flash in a different Earth, give them a more unique origin and let them shine instead of being in the shadow of the League like in the past.

My predictions are:

Catwoman
Demon Knights
Voodoo

It's amazing how DiDio keeps getting writing gigs but his books are never successful (and never any good in my opinion).

I don't mind the short series. If it isn't doing well, put it out of it's misery, or if what needed to said is over then end it before it gets to that point.

It's been done before so it's not exactly mind blowing, and it is "long lasting" until a writer feels like changing it.

I just hope it ends up with a Batman love triangle in the end.

It's been done in Elsewords stories, but not really in canon which makes it more interesting for me

Now that would be interesting. I hope to see this too. Overall, this looks pretty cool, though I have to wonder what sort of shitstorm will arise from this. I'm fairly certain one will .

I like superheroes dating other superheroes, it gets out of keeping the secret identity from a loved one and keep making excuses to go fight crime. Granted I love the idea of the princess of the amazons dating the millionaire playboy superhero more than her and Supes, but I generally accept it. Doug looks more pissed than when he saw the trailer for Dark Shadows but as I've cut down buying mainstream comics and just buy adventure time and bravest warriors and the spinoff of marceline so I just have to buy them as back issues.

Well at least now Supes can finally just release the Kraken!

Could be an interesting relationship, especially with where things seem to be heading in the DCU. The so called Trinity War as well as Darkseid's inevitable return, plus now the New Gods showing up in WW!

Ridiculously late reply here lol, but DC announced gay Alan Scott all over the media before issue 2 came out. "Gay Green Lantern" headlines and such.

Rob Liefeld has lost his mind on Twitter. Trashing DC editorial, calling his DC editor a dick, calling Tom Brevoort a fat ass and Scott Snyder a pretentious prick, and much more! The funniest is him posting a direct message exchange with Snyder that only made himself look like more or an immature douche :lol:. And recently he said every creator that's worked on Deadpool is a D-lister, which pissed off a lot of folks including Rick Remender.

He had already burned his bridge at Marvel when DC gave him a chance with the New 52, and now he's burned his bridge there too! Not to mention with Rob Kirkman on their now defunct Infinite series. Dude has issues.

The thing is, his gripes about heavy-handed DC editorial seem legit considering quite a few writers have complained about this lately. Especially when it comes to the mess that is New 52 Superman. But him acting like a total ass makes him lose credibility on the subject.

I certainly don't know the whole story but isn't part of his beef with DC about taking a stand regarding how George Perez has been treated? I only got told this second hand at my comic shop yesterday but it seemed like the stance he was taking was pretty genuine and showed some integrity. Sounds like he's undoing that now.
