    Dick's too popular to be in limbo for too long. I mean, things could spiral even further out of control than they are, and things could get real bad. Anything's possible. And that could be a serious...

    I agree that Bruce is an abusive bastard. He really is, and it's not even accidental on DC's part; this has happened enough they know what they're doing. I cannot fathom why anyone would put up with...

    My first thought was "how are some of these people breathing?" followed closely by "how are they reading right now?" Instead of looking at a cool picture of heroes riding sharks, I'm trying to work...

    It was still extremely hypocritical of Clark. At that point in continuity he had killed the Zoners, Imperiex, Henshaw, Darkseid, and maybe a few others. Or maybe he had tried to kill a few others, I...

    All-Star just repackaged old Silver Age stuff for a modern audience. Nothing in that story was new, thematically. And actually, back then,...

    Well, one of the generations is the "age of Crisis" or something, so I'm willing to bet that at least some people will know time has been manipulated and changed at various points. They might not...

    Well, whether I'm right or you are, either way 5G isn't likely to find success in the LCS. :D

    Because he makes DC a lot of money. If not for that and the fact that people automatically assume he's a good guy, Bruce would be considered DC's biggest villain. He's certainly done more to endanger...

    I don't follow your logic about Clark only offering salvation to the strong. That makes no sense to me. And if it's a comparison to Batman....who understands and empathizes with the downtrodden and...

    There's going to have to be changes across the timeline, just to rectify differences in continuity. The Kents being dead for the original 50 years, then alive in 1986, stuff like that will have to...

    I'm pretty sure 5G is aimed at people who don't want a Superman story, but might be intrigued by the twist of his heir.

    We've got plenty of stuff featuring the real characters aimed at kids....

    Oh, I know. I'm just saying I think I can see some of the business reasoning they're using. I don't think it'll work, I can just see the logic they're using. I think.

    It really is baffling.

    I'm with you, but he does have a point. Superman demands a little more of people. With Batman and other "flawed" heroes, they're all about letting your worst attributes rule you, and as long as you...

    Like others have said, Doomsday Clock and the upcoming Generation one shots would probably be the best place to jump in, if you're looking to understand the continuity.

    Thing is, continuity has...

    It is. Totally agreed.

    It confuses me too. I mean, I think I can see the business sense of doing 5G successors. DC's trying to find new audiences and reach people they typically haven't reached...

    DC doesn't take blind pitches.

    He'd have to pitch to Image or one of the other indies (except Dark Horse, who also don't take blind pitches) and work his way up to get DC's notice.

    And then...

    They aren't. Which means Marvel would've tried harder than DC did. And DC managed to integrate their other IP's pretty well (for the most part).

    I'm not saying they were worthless, just that they didn't have the juice that today's League has. And they didn't.

    I dunno, Pak's issues of Truth where Clark goes up against the cops was pretty legit.

    He probably only got to do that because Morrison did it first, but Pak definitely has the chops for it.
