Is there ANYONE who really feels that what DC needs right now is another cosmic crisis?

We've just had Rebirth sorting out some of the less popular parts of New52 without anything in the way of an event being required.

This is just... please no, stop this before it gets universe dooming.

this one actually seems cool. I DON'T like however that Batman seems like he's the intended badguy... I am hoping it's a misdirect.

I don't think Batman's intended to be the bad guy. Rather I think that the antagonist is this dark, primordial Bat "entity" they keep alluding to throughout. It might be a straight-up connection to Grant Morrison's Hyper-Adapter in fact.

So the Bat-entity is like this fundamental fear of the thing with wings that soars through the dark nights. And Bruce Wayne inadvertently co-opted the bat identity in becoming Batman and using that primordial fear of the dark to become a force for good. Now this ancient, Lovecraftian THING is out to reclaim the mantle of the Bat.

I hope it's something like this... I am tired of "hero turns evil" things....

I don't think Dark Days is a crisis like we're used to.

From what I've seen of previews and writer interviews and whatnot, it looks like we'll be going into a parallel universe for the main conflict.

So hopefully the event will be bereft of the continuity-twisting, "THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING" nonsense and be more like the Mirror Universe from Star Trek. A traipse into the looking glass before returning to the stable ground of normal continuity.
