    DC has a very profitable product using the word "Crisis". I don't think there's any way we can or should expect them to stop using the word for major events. They've done it for more than 50 years. A Crisis allows DC's various teams and franchises to come together to face situations that they can't handle alone. The idea is great and it's a way to showcase the diversity and power contained in each individual franchise and the Multiverse altogether.

    But, all Crises all the time (ACATT) isn't a way to go. The thrill of seeing franchise A and franchise B characters interact is because those franchises have been developed and they have their fans. ACATT leaves us with books that are epilogs to past event, a tie-i to current event and a prolog to a future event. Talk about a reality-altering rebooting Crisis while we're still waiting for the nu52 and Rebirth to settle is silly.

    Let me guess . . . Rebirth didn’t work out after all?
    Pull List:
    Marvel: Spider-Man:Renew Your Vows, Champions, Marvel Two-in-One, Fantastic Four (2018), Avengers (2018), Mr and Mrs X, Ironheart
    DC: Not much these days, but being cautiously optimistic for Shazam! (2018-2019) and Young Justice

    I think Rebirth did what it needed to do. The market wants events, they sell. While they may not sell as well as they once did, they still sell better than ongoings which sell no where near what they once did.

    Also, not everyone uses the word reboot to mean the same thing.

    Another also, if DC does go overboard with any sort of continuity changes I'll probably be done as well.

    I am not buying any events, just stop! Man DC is burning through all the good will they built up with me.

    Actually if they go through with this crap, then I will probably stop buying DC all together. It will save me some money.....

    What is the point of going for a new Crisis that could potentially lead to a reboot?

    We already have Rebirth which is a partial reboot of the New 52 which was a partial reboot of the old continuity. Continuity is already a mess, why go deeper down the rabbit hole?

    New 52 got shafted because it alienated some of the older fans(I always felt that New 52 had good ideas that were tainted by bad execution). What's the excuse for shafting Rebirth? Not attracting new fans?

    Good! Maybe this time they'll do it right. As in, not rebooting in the middle of an ongoing storyline and actually settle things before they go to print. Not gonna hold my breath on that, though.

    Also, they're still neck deep in New 52 continuity, so they'll have to do a reboot of some sort in order to combine elements that people miss. If they don't, all those tease about Young Justice, Wally, Batgirls and so on will be useless.

    It depends on what those changes are. If the continuity changes bring back characters who got shafted by the New 52 and Rebirth, I won't mind. That being said there should be no need for a reboot or Crisis to do so and it puts other characters at risk to be shafted.

    I really think the last thing DC needs at this point is another reboot, especially if this gets rid of virtually any and all goodwill they gained with Rebirth.

    It's not a good sign when the most stable universe DC is publishing right now is one where Superman is a villain.

    IF this ends up being a hard reboot like the N52 and IF it also ends up erasing the marriages yet again I'll be taking more of my money to smaller publishers like Image, Lion Forge and Aftershock where I don't have to put up with this nonsense anymore.

    Supporting LION FORGE COMICS and other independent publishers.

    Check out Lion Forge's Catalyst Prime Universe. Its the best damned superhero verse in comics. Diverse characters and interesting stories set in a universe where anyone can be a hero. And company that prides itself on representation both in the comics themselves and in the people behind them.

    Oh my goodness gracious! I've been bamboozled!

    Don’t hold your breath.... Wouldn’t be surprised if the conclusion of Doomsday Clock leads directly into whatever crisis DC are planning.
