Hmmm. What *IS* DC up to ? ?

Postby IvCNuB4 » Wed Mar 06, 2013 6:50 pm

Okay, so we know that Wildstorm, Vertigo and the main DCU were once one universe, then they were separated, then at the end of Flashpoint they were re-merged resulting in the New52.
Coming up we have the Trinity War and Pandora's new ongoing title.
In the GL titles, the First Lantern is attempting to alter reality to change the Corps history.

And now this week in Superman #17, the conclusion of "H'El On Earth", Supergirl
[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
stabs H'El with Kryptonite, and then H'El is sent through his temporal portal back to Krypton a decade before it explodes where Jor-El finds him. Keep in mind that this is now current weird-looking H'El and not the normal looking H'El that was Jor-El's student. This now alters Krypton's history.


And the Oracle now knows that these actions will have "dire ramifications yet to come" for Superman and ... the Omniverse!

Maybe our "backdoor" theories about Flashpoint are valid and the DCU will be altered again ? Maybe this whole New52 was never meant to be permanent ? Pandora's comments at the end of Flashpoint could be interpreted that way.

So .. comments ?
Speculations ?
Rabid fan-boy ravings ? :lol:

Things were so much easier when Superboy punched reality.

I think I'd read more DC books if the 'real' universe made a return.. but as long as they kept Wonder Woman's book going as an alternate universe thing. That book is nothing short of fantastic.
Do you know what the most frightening thing in the world is?

It's fear.

I think this question makes me want to shoot myself in the head.

I'll be staying far away from the DCU proper until this needlessly confusing crap is resolved.

Remember the days when reboots were simple as a punch or self contained in their own events?

Using Pandora to bring back the real DCU would be a smart move.
Which, of course, means they won't do it.

Agreed. I think they're stubbornly rooted in the new status quo. Especially based on the look Cavill is sporting in Man Of Steel and the dreadful rumors that they want Nolan and Bale involved in a JL movie.

the idea that wildstorm and the DCU ever belonged together is laughable. they're oil and water
and Vertigo? it held such a special place with creators and fans until it got the didio treatment

I hate when they use kryptonite that way. Kryptonian gets stabbed with it and he doesn’t die? Makes kryptonite seem like it isn’t’ too bad..

Yes, I miss those days and hate DC tries to keep reinventing the wheel.

Oracle is described as "summoned here as it has been summoned from the dawn of time to bear witness to threats to the flow of time and space. And give warning to those responsible"

A lame excuse for DC to keep the rights to the name "Oracle" after putting Babs back in the Batgirl suit.
