I did like the Demon Knights, good to work them into things.

'Century babies'. There's another Wildstorm thing that'd have been cool if they'd worked in to the DC stuff more broadly.

I am a little surprised no one ever complained about how western that was

Most of the mentioned century babies were American and British, but I don't think it was exclusive. Jenny Quantum there was born in Singapore, and one of Warren Ellis's century babies, Hark, was basically a heroic version of Fu Manchu without the Yellow Peril.

not what I meant. There's a Jewish New Year, Rosh Hasannah and a I Chinese New Year and an Arabic New Year.

Having the Century Baby work like it works says that the western way of telling time is the correct one. I'm surprised no one ever said anything about that

Ah, I see! Yeah, that's a good point.

EDIT: I would fix that by making explicit that the century baby timing is based on when the baby's particular culture marks the century division. It's the year 5777 by the Hebrew calendar, so an Israeli century baby would be 77 years old. What the century babies represent is already implied to be cultural, as with Jenny representing the nebulous 'spirit' of a century.

I really, really, really wish we'd gotten a full story of the Demon Knights fighting cyborg dolphins.

And that's why we didn't get it.
No fun for you!
