Well, the old universe wasn't constantly in the top ten.
Whatever the reason, the numbers are showing a success.
Therefore, this universe > the old one.
Peddling "The ends justify the means", I see. Tsk, tsk.
How something happens ALWAYS matters, especially in this case.
The old universe didn't have a massive load of hype and "52 #1 COLLECTORS ITEMS!
" behind it.
That's what is inflating the numbers on the DCnU.
Creatively, it's all the same people packaging their same old crap in new boxes.
Therefore, the proper equation is hype and everything started over > no hype and continuing histories, at least TEMPORARILY.
I'm not a fan if it? there are quite a few titles I enjoy but overall how they went bout this was hogwash and balls were dropped.
Good to know.
