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.
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
"A great tactician creates plans.
A good tactician recognizes the soundness of a plan presented to him.
A fair tactician must see the plan succeed before offering approval.
Those with no tactical ability at all may never understand or accept the plan.
And when a mind is too deficient in understanding, the resulting gap is often filled with resentment."
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.
