    When did green chainmail bikini bottoms for boys become a good thing? I like good things, but the very first Robin costume is not good from the waist down.

    It's neither chainmail, nor bikini. Typically (though I won't say always), it's a leotard, and briefs, not bikini. Trunks, actually, though people don't like to use the term anymore, and prefer to use those that sound more derisive and insulting.

    I think New 52 Aquaman might still be canon, with Arthur never having/losing a child with Mera. Also the two of them have never married I don't think. Arthur is still the cause/reason for the death of Black Manta's father as well. Orm and Tula are also still siblings.
    We are the Dora Milaje. We are the daughters of the 18 tribes of Wakanda. We are the teeth of the Panther God. Out of 10,000 years of sweat and bloodshed and battle are we born. We are the women of this ancient land. Deadliest of the species. And our time has come!

    What's good about it is that it's the classic costume. It means that the DC Universe actually has a sense of history and legacy and didn't just start in 2011 with a 1990s EXTREEEEEEEEEME aesthetic. That's what's good about it.

    I get why Rucka did it even if I don't think we need two Questions.

    There was always Tim's suit/B:TAS costume. I don't know why the Rocafort costume has lasted as long as it has.

    Clark and bruce both know billy is captain marvel. So, maybe their past adventures/meeting have been reinserted.

    What I'm talking about is that the vast majority of things that were retconned or rebooted during the New 52 have largely returned to their Pre-Flashpoint histories with their New 52 history rolled into them when they can, or explained away in the cases of Superman and Wonder Woman.
    It kind of did in the sense that it more or less erased everything Jason Todd related that came out after "Under the Hood". To my knowledge there's been nothing to suggest that any of it has made it's way back into his current in-universe history.

    Good example.

    Green Arrow tried to graft elements of his Pre-Flashpoint history onto his largely unsuccessful New 52 incarnation. How did that end up? There's so much dodgy stuff in Ollie's Pre-Flashpoint continuity, I suspect a lot of that will remain forgotten.

    Is there anyone else whose New 52 retcons/reboot has carried over to current continuity?

    Cassandra Cain's whole Orphan/Mother stuff is still canon as far as I'm aware even if they retconned back in that she's Shiva's daughter.
