Greetings ladies and gents! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend with your friends and families. I certainly did!

But now, more info on DC's plans for their relaunch in 2012. From what I read on their blog, it looks like we can look forward to more changes as their newer universe starts to evolve. And of course, I'm sure you're all well aware of which one *I'm* especially looking forward to. ^_^

From DC's blog:

By Bob Harras

And so 2011 draws to a close.

By any definition, it was an incredibly successful year for us here at DC Comics. It was a year of excitement for anyone who loves comics.

Now, not to sound corny — but the most important thing to us is that all of you who love and read DC Comics responded in such an incredibly positive way to The New 52.

We appreciate it. It’s why we do what we do.

But 2011 was just the beginning. Next year will bring even more changes, more action and more surprises. The evolution of the DC Universe will continue and accelerate as events ripple across titles, impacting characters in unexpected ways.

For instance, check out next month’s STORMWATCH, in which a devastating explosion will echo in upcoming issues of both GRIFTER and SUPERMAN, as a major new (yet somehow familiar) threat will be introduced.

And keep an eye on BIRDS OF PREY in the coming months, where Black Canary’s long-held secrets will start to unravel.

And what exactly is Kid Flash’s story? TEEN TITANS will explore that mystery early next year.

All that and more is coming in 2012.

So, best wishes for a Happy New Year from all of us at DC.

See you next year!

Huh, I'm intrigued about Black Canary's 'long-held secrets.' I am hoping she's still Dinah Drake's daughter though. It just would wouldn't be the same without Mama Canary being a significant part of the character's history.

I DO wish DC would release more info on Power Girl, though. I mean it's been what...two months now since the character last appeared on Mister Terrific, and so far there's been no further info on the character since then. What's more is that Karen's been largely defined by her relationship with the titular character and has been nothing more than second fiddle to him, which IMO is a complete disservice to the character. Still I hope we learn something soon, cause the wait is killing me. More importantly, I do hope she ends up back on Earth-2 with the JSA (where she belongs) and gets her solo title back.

Oh sigh. For legality, have Classic Peege being Classic Peege.

Martian manhunter and Superman meeting each other? I can't wait if that happens. :_

I thought that a soft reboot was when you take established continuity, draw a line underneath it and change the status quo, like moving the team to a new city or changing the roster.

The New 52 has rewritten origins and characterisation for many characters

With some titles they did. Supergirl is starting from the ground up again and it's pretty bloody good, actually

With the Architects' titles (Green Lantern, Batman), they didn't.

"Next year will bring even more changes, more action and more surprises."

Wonder Woman ends up feeling powerless, gets married, has a son, and turns catholic. I... freaking... dare you to do that DC. You've already made one of her side kick's origin story HER ORIGIN, and had her mother recite her passionate lust driven relationship with Zeus like the Mariner. At least the Mariner had to recite his story word for word in order to appease a curse that was bestowed upon him. Not only is Hippolyte not cursed, we have a mother telling her daughter everything about this lustful affair in such detail it would rival all of Cinemax's late night programs.

Ha. Wonder Woman is fixed now because some playboy god knocked up her mother and leaves her and her fellow Amazons to their fate against his vengeful wife. I'M NOT SEEING IT.

If you're a Green Lantern fan, then you won't have missed a beat with the reboot; it just continues from what was happening before Flashpoint.

And having read bits of catwoman, I get the impression that Selina has been Catwoman for a bit.

I just hope they get things organized. There's to many conspiracies, unnecessary secrets, they need to do some consolidations and reveals. They also need to make up their mind on the nature of the new DCU.

On the one hand most of Lodbell's books have heroes having a slightly(very slight) better relationship with normal folks than the X-men do( talk about damning with faint praise). Superman has an uneasy relationship with the populace it seems.

Meanwhile in JLI the idea of the gov't getting involed in the hero business leads to people firebombing the Hall of Justice.

And in Batman and GL comics everyone's fine with heroes despite the fact Bruce Wayne is essentially setting up an international mercenary army, and GLs answer to aliens.

Among the changes, that better include Lian being reborn. And I hope they re-establish the relationship between Roy and Dinah. Feels weird that, that hasn't been acknowledged yet.

Essentially if you're male in the Batfamily you're fine. If you're female, good luck. The sexism is glaring.

It's scary that the first thought I had when I read your comment was "I can imagine so many ways DC could mess things up even worse for Wonder Woman!"

Are they redoing Bart's backstory or changing it? Not sure if want.

Oh no, I just realised that Tao probably exists in the DCU now. XP HIS reveal is one that I'm not looking forward to. Especially considering what he was up to in the post-apocalypse Wildstorm Unvierse.

I hate when people use 'impact' as a transitive verb like that. Not only is it incorrect, it invariably means they're talking bollocks.

I miss being able to love lots of diverse and interesting characters in DC comics. Will that change in 2012? :(

Though Dick has lost five years of age, and both he and Tim's entire previous career(s) with the Titans has been excised with no clear indication what (if anything) replaced it.

Given Bart appears to have never had any connection with the Flash, and we have no clue as to his backstory, I think they pretty much have to.

I didn't think Catwoman was being treated as a new player in the field. That IS weird....

And that's not the only change Dicks past appears to be going through. Aside from excising forty years worth as a member of the (New) Teen Titans which seems fairly significant, especially since the Titans are pivotal to his ever becoming Nightwing rather than staying Robin, his background and origin also appear to be in serious flux, since his current storyline appears to have had some sort of pre-destined future as a killer because of some deep-dark secret of the circus.

That, to me, seems to be more or less on a par to the upheaval that, say, Babs has had, and more than Kate Kane. (Though yes, Helena and Selina seem to be going through more)

Is it an actual misuse? A meteorite impacts on the Earth, doesn't it?

Hadn't the Frank Miller origin been more or less gone for some time? The past she got given even prior to Zero Hour seemed to be a lot less heading towards a career as a sex-worker, more as a basically selfish, but thrill seeking, thief.
