    I think this would work well with the different "imprint" ideas being tossed around. You could have your "regular" DCU and your different tangent/variant DCU's too. That's a lot of variety and...

    Yeah I didn't think of it like that, but the Gods and Monsters stuff is kind of along the lines of a Silver Age rebrand. Someone mentioned Tangent too, which is a similar approach.

    The loss of the secret identity, I think, also plays into how we've come to view heroes as soldiers rather than as noble outlaws or first responders.
