    I'm surprised this board is so calm. I've seen many people blowing gaskets elsewhere. Still, I say here what I did there:

    My gut tells me it is not as permanent or as drastic as the Collective Comic Internet ID seems to believe. That's not how DC or Marvel works anymore. This is likely a storyline that will run its course and nothing more.

Yeah I tend to agree. I fully support it and there'll be great stuff coming from it but the more I read of and think on it the more like a sales gimmick it looks, a nice gimmick to be sure but to change both continuity and costumes as radically as this is an unusual move, DC have had such almightly problems ironing out its basic continuity since 1986 and have gone to such lengths to make it cohesive and integrated again in recent years I don't think this 'throw-it-all-out' relaunch is credible in that light.
