    Unless I missed something it didn't bring back the pre-New 52 continuity. As I understand it, we're still following the New 52 continuity.

    All that happened was that it was revealed that Dr Manhattan was in fact responsible for the Flashpoint revision.

    Of course loads of us knew that way way in advance.

    But for causal casual readers this is a big shock. And apparently to some on this forum, new52 deniers, for lack of a better word thought new52 was wiped away at the Rebirth/Reborn fusion.

    Of course new52 is the timeline all modern books are born from. Manhattan is responsible for this.

    These guys explain it more or less as I have

    Do these New 52 deniers also believe that the Earth is flat?

    Really? I feel like the current DCU is more of a Post Crisis/Pre Flashpoint universe mixed with some stuff from the New52. At least from the books I have read. Flash, Infinite Frontier. Heck, even in Death Metal and other books it seems like the DCU resembles more the pre Flashpoint universe than the New 52.

    It looks like the pre-New 52 DCU, but it is technically still the New 52 timeline.

    I think it's a random mix of everything that nobody is willing to define one way or another at present.

    I agree with this. There have been so many reality and continuity shifting events going on lately that it's tough to see if anything has settled at all.
    Why yes, I do enjoy hearing myself talk. it is very kind of you to notice>

    Iunno, I don't really think so. it reads very much like the post-Flashpoint universe, just with more pre-Flashpoint things filling some of the gaps. aside from some characters coming back into the fold, most of the characters that have been around still feel like they're following the threads they've been on in the post-Flashpoint continuity. I feel like we saw a similar thing with DC Rebirth, people kinda wanting believe it pre-Flashpoint because some of the old stuff have been integrated even though there's no real reason to.

    Well obviously no one really knows, but the way I interpret "everything happened" is that the stories happened in the chronological order. So the most recent status quo foundation is the New 52 but with everything that happened before it now counting as well.

    I think yours missing the point of what I've actually said and others have explained more clearly what I meant.
