Infinite Crisis wasn't a true reboot, right? It looks like they are completely rebooting the characters, unlike IC.

I notice a slight costume change for Superman - but expect that and the age as just the beginning.

Crisis on Infinite Earths type of reboot. Just damn. This could be great.

you think this is a good thing? Honestly screams bad idea to me. Think DCU reboots it self to much, but perhaps thats just me.

Infinite Crisis changed quite a bit, specifically events concerning the Trinity. Which Geoff Johns also helmed.

The guy is almost single handedly retconning the DCU.

But it didn't change the origins or anything, right? Don't remember. This looks like it will change everything, not just certain things. Making it a much bigger reboot/change.

Yes, it effected their origins somewhat. Superman was retconned into have being active in Smallville as Superboy and teaming up with the LoSH during his early years, which was later revised somewhat in Superman: Secret Origin. Batman was retconned into Joe Chill having been caught. And Wonder Woman was retconned into being a founding member of the JLA once more shortly after she left Themyscira.

And Geoff's had his role in changing the GL/Flash mythos as well. I like the guy, but this is too much, imo.

I have no problem with it as long as it tells good stories. I have had a blast with the current Flash series and Green Lantern epics. Overall, those are small things. This "change" looks like a wider UNIVERSE type thing, which is why all the titles are going to be renumbered to #1.

I just want good stories. I'm also psyched for the Lee/Johns JLA. Should be good.

We've been glossing over the most important fact of this announcement, Day and Date digital release for each of the 52 new series. That could be a game changer.

Anyway, this has been a long time coming and from a purely logistic stand point was needed. Blame Robin (all of them). Writers keep aging them or introducing knew ones, without releasing that every time they do, they essentially age the entire DC U. If you crunch the numbers, Batman is pushing 40... and that's too old.

Jim Lee and Johns on JLA sounds good, but if I know Jim Lee - which unfortunately I do - we will get two issues eight months apart, no word on the series for two years, then an other relaunch with someone who can actually meat a deadline.

I've been saying Johns was doing this so he could write the JLA for a while now, but I'm not that happy about it.

Looks like I'll be dropping what few comics I read as it is...

God dammit.

Hurray for Cyborg getting a massive push, I guess...

This is one of the worst ideas I have ever heard. The upper brass at dc seems to resort to rebooting too often. I am so glad marvel has never done anything like this.

I really don't like the idea of throwing away such huge masses of continuity. Even recently it seemed like DC was acknowledging a lot of Pre-COIE stuff as canon.

DC would revert back to the status quo before that happened. Time Warner won't let DC die like that.

Me either.

DC has a reputation of confusing canon as if and a habit of using events as the means to change what isn't working for them as a quick fix. Why not just make a JLA team in the current DCU canon using the Big 7 + Cyborg? Why not just, oh, I don't know, write better stories instead of just erasing what you think "today's" audience doesn't like in favor for what they do like.

In fact, this whole notion of "today's" comic book reader doesn't even make sense. DC acts like there's this percentage of readers out there who complains about not having characters relatable to them and wanting real world parallels and contempory takes on icons, when, to me, today's comic book reader is the guy whose been supporting his LCS for years on end and has been the lifeblood of the company for years and will be "tomorrow's" comic book reader provided you don't do something really stupid.

Why alienate a large group of readers in favor for some demographic that I for one am not sure even exists and if it does, not to the point that DC is trying to claim? Hell, aren't I today's comic book reader, too? I really see no reason why this couldn't have been set as a multiverse side line of books.
