Ok, that is enough from you. I do not appreciate your instigating lurid comments about obsessive DC Comics fans. (Even if it is rightfully dead on accurate.)

Oh, don't be mad.
Maybe someday, you will be right about DC, like I always am. :smt056

I find it refreshing that you two are casting off social and moral restraints and celebrating this Hallmark Holiday in your own open-mindedness style :twisted:

And bitching about DC aside, why don't they do one book set in the old universe? We all know it would sell. I would buy it. A lot of people would. Marvel clearly proved you can create two separate universes and have both sell well.
For that matter, why doesn't DC come out with a Facebook game like Marvel Alliance? I'd spend 90 cp on Booster Gold...
I've never said DC doesn't make some good books. But I do say they alienated a large chunk of their hard-core fans and while they've had some successes they've really damaged some of their properties.

That's a really good idea. They have 50 other Earths to play with.
I'm still wondering if the Trinity War won't have something to do with the universes being split and re-merged like what Pandora spoke about in the last issue of Flashpoint. What if the "Trinity" also refers to the 3 previously separate Universes ?

It is because they want the old universe to die, that is why we have Earth 2 and not Earth Pre-flashpoint.

Because it might outsell the NU 52 books.
