I'd be fine with the world changing as it had continued on into the 21st century, as long as they tried to at least pretend it was the same continuity. Most of the golden age members should be dead by now anyway, and the team would continue on with Infinitors as they got older and "graduated" to become JSAers much like some Titans became Leaguers. They really only need Hawkman, GL, and Flash to continue the name; they are to the JSA what Supes, Bats, and WW are to the JLA and Cap, Iron Man, and Thor are to the Avengers.

Costumes could change as well and I wouldn't shit a brick. I just want the history to go on. Fuck retcons though, and keep Geoff Johns the hell away from it. The third time would NOT be a charm.

I don't even think there should be an earth-2. And why do they have so many retcons that no-one needs?

Because writers have egos that they like to stroke by putting their mark on things. It used to be you made your mark by adding a shitty member to a team. Now it's retconning something to fit your "vision".

It's a shame. I hate un-needed retcons and reboots.

According to a review of the FCBD issue posted on Ain't It Cool News Batman is confirmed to be Bruce Wayne and all that "which Wayne?" bullshit was just smoke and mirrors. Stupid DC.

Yeah, I expected as much when Robinson said he didn't have any plans for Wally.

Earth 2 #1 Variant Cover by Bryan Hitch

Quote:
“If there's one thing my adult pro self wanted out of DC COMICS-THE NEW 52, it was a return to the days of Infinite Earths. And it starts here. Jim designed the coolest costumes and it was a hoot of a sandbox to play in for a few hours. They are still Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, though, but that was always the fun, wasn't it? The same but different. My eight-year son got a real kick out of me drawing this, just like my eight-year old self would have!”

This is what I believe the captions say:

Superman: So many sounds. cries. The dying. My city dying. Not dead. Trying to stay sharp <Can't make it out>...Seems like the hardest thing I've ever had to do.
Wonder Woman: ...Kill as many as I can.
Batman: There.

That's an interesting idea. Making the book a POV whenever he wants. Should work well early on before a "team/society" is established.

Contrary to my initial impression and Daves' rants, I'm actually looking forward to this book now. It's not the JSA of old, it's JLA V 2.0, but you know what? I don't care. I love alternate worlds/characters and won't let some desire for nostalgia ruin this for me. I'm onboard.

Now all we need is an Earth 3 with the Crime Syndicate of America and the Trinity of the Alternate Worlds will be complete.

Oh, and maybe an Earth-8 comic with Lord Havok and the Extremists, just because

Quote:
“The parts not on fire are really pretty,” says EARTH TWO editor Pat McCallum. “Trouble is that after an invasion from Apokolips, some prime Earth 2 real estate has gone up in smoke. What we’re looking at down there used to be [INFORMATION REDACTED].”

“One of the great things about EARTH TWO is that while it’s very much plugged into the larger DC Universe, it’s also somewhat self contained,” continued McCallum. “You can really cut loose with the storytelling and not sweat how it impacts other shared-universe titles. James Robinson and Nicola Scott, the creators on the title, have taken full advantage of that. So when things start to really hit the fan in EARTH TWO, they’re going to hit in jarring, unapologetic ways. Characters will die, landmarks will burn and the good guys won’t always save the day. Aside from entertaining readers, the goal of every issue is to make fans put it down and think ‘I can’t believe they just did that.’ It’s gonna be a fun ride...unless you’re in one of the parts of Earth 2 that’s on fire.”

EARTH TWO #1 goes on sale tomorrow.

And Newsarama has an early review of the first issue up.

I'm going to jerk off three times before I go to the comic store tomorrow JUST to ensure that doesn't happen.
