cassandra was still a batgirl in batman inc. and I actually liked batgirl when it started out with stephanie, it was good, kinda had a little buffy vibe going. I think they are doing this to bring in new readers and whatnot, and just change the status quo, its a little silly if you ask me, I dont like them setting back new people (dick) just to have the same people (bruce who I love, but cmon) in like 4-5 books themselves..... ugh.


flashpoint is decent right now, I like how cyborg is the definitive hero of this world.


and no, everything is being rebooted but the stuff johns did with blackest night and brightest day etc will still be intact in the canon.

edit-- again its not a complete reboot, its like a semi reboot\launch

@Neocide
I like the Revy avatar. Also you're 100% certain DC said that's what they're doing, and not what they 'basically' said? Where'd they say it, because I want to see their 100% actual words.

And seriously:
P.S. Is it possible to get HIV from a bite? Because I'm watching Baki the Grappler and Baki's mom just bit him, then when he was leaving, I saw this.

I looked over and I see alot of characters getting titles that are not fan favs.
Also I saw the teen titans, I won't be reading that
seriously WTF happened to them. DC can never get them straight.
I'm glad blackest night and brightest day aren't getting erased.
what is the cause of this flash point thing by the way. Is it fallout from the last crisis?

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty
I am not liking teen titans either, what the fuck did they do to tim drake, he looks like falcon's sidekick. ugh. UGH. this relaunch is lame.

When I tried to read what was in the spoiler tab I suddenly got the error "did not compute!"

That sounds like it would have been a nice else-world story and nothing more.

I didn't find anything useful on that link you posted, aside from a link to another site with this lady with m.d. speaking about Barbara being a symbol/icon for people with disabilities and DC retconing/removing her handicap is upsetting to her, which linked to another page with some information about the new line of comic books (3 pages with more than 4 text-only paragraphs is too much for me to suffer through)

I only saw them re-mentioning that DC comics is making a first issue for 50/51/52 comic books, which doesn't say it's an entirely new story/continuity. It could easily be just a new volume for each of them (which if you only see that information it doesn't, by itself, state a new continuity).

(If you actually want me to figure it out any time soon) Can you link me to a specific source for information on a continuity change.

and really, I want to know  >_<
P.S. Is it possible to get HIV from a bite? Because I'm watching Baki the Grappler and Baki's mom just bit him, then when he was leaving, I saw this.

check around there, they have previews to the comics on sale in september, which are alot of new number ones with relaunching stuff, they dont intentionally tell you some stuff is being redone, but they do mention stuff, also the fact some of the big characters are going to be a bit younger. 


edit --- and hiv is transmitted through open wounds etc, so biting someone who has the virus could cause you to get it, not entirely sure though but its possible I think.

Ok, thanks (for both). So I take it that it can't be transferred via biting someone (biter to bit).

Do you know about the number 42?? Well, for DC Comics, the number 52 it's almost the same thing, it's like a symbolic number used in a lot of stuff and stories in the company

And don't like the 80% of changes in this reboot, like Rob Liefeld making the new Hawk & Dove series  :gonk:

They should add the female as an associate to the hawk and dove (brothers? I don't know anything about them aside the cartoon versions).

I don't know 42, but 52 is the multiverse and 52 days of no SM/BM/WW.

P.S. look at my signature  ;D.

What does that mean  >:( (aside from the animation, out sigs are the same size, and yours is almost the same humor as mine)

Hey 6 men holding each other's hips with their asses really close together seems far more disturbing than a boxer hitting a referee's hand for getting too close to the sack   ::) .

Can you explain/simplify 42, because that's a page explaining the number 42, which is one number greater than 41, and one number less than 43. That's over explaining a single number.

Spoiler: To avoid more offtopic... Edtion, get over here!! (click to see content)

Also, DC showed the new designs of Superman, Supergirl and Superboy (way different to Teen Titans appearance)
http://www.bleedingcool.com/2011/06/09/dc-relaunch-a-brand-new-look-for-superman-supergirl-and-superboy/

And I think the other thread about Reboot should be merged here, IMO (report?)

Maybe, though this thread really isn't about the new reboot (people just keep talking about it), it's about.... the first crisis and other DC related things.

I can tolerate the supergirl, but that superman sucks (maybe it's just the way it's drawn). If they're going to make any changes to him, they need to give him black and white suit with long hair  ;D. The superboy may look good once he's finished being built (as a cyborg/robot?)

supergirl's new costume is interesting. Supermans is kinda egh.
Superboy is totally bastardized but I never liked him anyway.

wtf, superman looks like he has armor on almost, I know he's the man of steel, but you don't have to make it look like his suit is too. SuperGirl's suit is nice,superboy's sucks in titans and his own title, what a letdown there.
