    Johns has no power over the direction of DC. He’s not the guy stopping John Stewart from getting an ongoing, you guys gotta stop making him the boogeyman. Johns is basically contained to Shazam and Three Jokers and that’s it.

    Honestly I’m just shocked because it feels so sudden. Like only like a week ago it was announced the whole Generations one-shots they will lead into 5G/Generation 5 based off the whole thing that Didio has been spear heading and then just out of no where today this happens.

    Well that's going to throw a spanner into the 5G works, isn't it? I get the feeling that won't be lasting long now.

    When Alonso left Marvel, the Marvel Legacy initiative quickly got killed off. It'll surely be the same at DC, the new guy in charge will have their own plans.

    Whatever reshuffling may occur down the line, just give me Jurgens as editor and big bopper of the Superman offices and I'll be happy!

    Every post I make, it should be assumed by the reader that the following statement is attached: "It's all subjective. What works for me doesn't necessarily work for you, and vice versa, and that's ok. You may have a different opinion on it, but this is mine. That's the wonderful thing about being a comics fan, it's all subjective."

    Eh....realist opinion incoming...you been warned...


    While I do feel this is outstanding news for DC... I also feel that I/we shouldn't pop any champaign bottles just yet. For one DC Comics (and the Mainstream comic industry in general) is floundering based on sales numbers and other factors. With AT&T now at the head of the ship we may be getting a DC Universe that we like or enjoy. At the same time a new "leader" who is worse than Dan, this person very well may attempt to course correct to bring in sales to literally save the comic division essentially from itself but in the end create a large mess. Best hope is we get someone who actually loves DC Comics and DC Characters. A established Veteran in the industry.

    If DC is still planning to move forward with that "5G" idea even with Dan DiDio out of the way then nothing has changed and the division itself will have done nothing more then fallen face first in it's on end.

    First time in nearly twenty years that DC will be without Dan Didio. Goodness knows what the change portends.

    I don't know about AT&T micromanaging DC, but I agree on a lot depends on who steps in to take DiDio's place. And true, 5G could still happen, but right now, it very well could get derailed now. Not to mention the current direction of the comics as a whole.

    Johns has been gone from a position of power for over a year. He finished Doomsday Clock and is (occasionally) writing Shaxam as a freelancer.

    I just hope 5G won't be killed because of it, or that whoever takes charges of DC won't be one of those guys who will be a Nostalgia Fanatics of the pre-New 52 era and trash everything which came to be since 2011. Otherwise, I guess I'll just have to stop reading DC... And comics generally speaking, since I don't read others.
