If anything, this will be a younger Clark - and DCU - so he won't be married to Lois.

I'm going to get shit for this, but...

I like Lois/Clark, lol. When writers give a damn, they can write a good, strong, Lois that doesn't come off as some kind of trick all the time.

Hmmm, the JLA picture leads me to believe Jonn is being cut out of the JLA's big 7 in favour of a dirty nig...Cyborg.

So, where should I start my trail of slaughter and despair?

For all we know, they could possibly kill off J'onn or not even introduce him, period.

Or they can introduce him later! They already announced that there will be more team members. Even some new character from Flashpoint. You guys need to stop overreacting.

BTW, is anyone interested in the Edge books? I'm betting Secret 7, Swamp Thing, Constantine, and or Frankenstein.

So this'll be the what, fourth reboot for the Legion since the mid 1990's?

Eh, while Morrison on Superman will likely be good, and Johns will probably improve JLA, you'd think it would be easier for them to just hire writers who can write good stories rather than reboot every title...

I mean, all the development Morrison has done with Batman will just be gone? Eh it seems like someone has looked at the DCU and decided because a renumbering/restructuring of JLA/Supes will work, it's best to do it to every title, rather than just hiring decent writers.

Also I bet freaking Barry will be the Flash on the JLA and Wally will be sidelined, simple because it's Johns writing. Which is massively lame.

From my point of view this whole deal is a desperate act. No amount of spin for any positives, which there are of course, nothing changes the fact that DC has to keep upending everything over and over.

They really haven't in a long time, but... yea, this still smells like a desperation move.

They shouldn't be desperate enough to try it I would think but apparently the current people in charge don't have a better idea of what to do.

I disagree with that reason, but I also don't think they work well together as an item. There's not much to link them other than "they're both super-powerful," and also you don't want either of them playing second fiddle to the other for a variety of thematic reasons.

Finally, when they're together in Elseworlds, it's usually really boring.

Their friend chemistry surpasses their romance chemistry by far.

Kurt Busiek described it accurately.

DC pre-Silver Age: 18 years or so. The Earth-One Era: 29 years? Post-Crisis: 25 years, shaky toward the end. And now...a new era. Let's see.


I'm willing to see before I judge, but I think that the JLA, Superman and Batman (the first two being two titles that were in dire need of quality) are in a very good place.

Morrison writing Superman: you know that's going to be good.

Still doesn't justify 'youthing' the entire company just for the lulz... But at least I'll have a light at the end of a very dark tunnel. /shrug

I'm just saying Kal my be the only character in comics from this side of Jesse Custer who is actually capable of "true love", Diana has not that much relationship value.

Sounds like it could be a good idea with some good stories.

I unfortunately have not been able to follow comics like I used to over the past 3-4 months. Still I've heard from people I'm not gonna say a majority but from people I respect that in general the story telling has been worse and getting worse.

So it doesn't matter how good of an idea you have it depends on your ability to execute it. If they don't take care of the real problem which is story telling then it doesn't matter what you're gonna do.

Of course this is just from what I've heard and could be completely wrong.
