Default The secret of the Nu52 revealed!

ITEM: Before Watchmen proves DC is shamelessly desperate to capitalize on anything that Alan Moore has touched. They even bought companies to get stuffr touched by Alan Moore.

ITEM: Superman and Wonder Woman planned to be a couple in the Nu52

ITEM: The Green Lantern Corps is now more connected to all of the DCU's space happenings

ITEM: There's a whole barrel of Batman related characters

ITEM: Billy Batson and Mary Bromfield aren't revealed to be brother and sister, but are instead foster kids staying with the same family.

ITEM: All the teen characters are tied to the Teen Titans in some way now

ITEM: The Quality characters are being relaunched in the NuDC and not in their own world.

ITEM: Each of the publishing sub groups (EDGE, Justice League, Superman, Batmant, etc) show a strategy to tie certain characters to one another.

CONCLUSION: DC is building up to exploit their never used story idea from Alan Moore, "Twilight of the Superheroes".

Discuss.

I remember this quote from a bad 70's play called 'Warp'. It was to capitalize on the Super Hero Trend.

"Destroy the Universe, that's so crazy" "Destroy the Universe, where are you going to live afterwards?"...Lord Nebula.

Didn't they make that into a comic? Published by First I think? Mark someone wrote it. About the same time as First was starting out.

Start over again with new #1s? That's the brilliant thing, they can actually create a finite story which they can put "inspired by ideas from ALAN MOORE (creater of Watchmen)" on the cover and that can be collected forever, end a universe and get a reboot/relaunch #1s out of the deal.

Its a plan so crazy it just might work!

Warp! (co-written by Stuart Gordon) did have a spin-off comic from First Comics - one of these days I need to track those comics down as I tend to like Peter B. Gillis' work.

Was it as painful as the night you were sitting in the tree with Jake stalking Krystal and the squirrel went up your pants leg and you fell out of that tree trying to get it our of your pants?

But it'll be named "Twilight of the Superheroes"

(it'll be pronounced Throat Warbler Mangrove, however)

Kal and Bruce fighting over the affections of Diana?

Well, Kal IS solar powered (SPARKLY!)
Bruce is nocturnal (FURRY!)
Diana is incredibly boring (Kristen Stewart)



Yeah, I can see "Team Clark" and "Team Bruce" shirts.....

For anyone who isn't familiar with the 'Twilight of the Superheroes' proposal by Moore, here ya go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twiligh...he_Superheroes

With DiDio's insistance on "iconic" characters, there's no way it's because they're going in this direction.

Given how truely "iconic" DC's/Didio's "iconic characters" are being in the Nu52, I don't see things like gigolo Plastic Man to actually be all that much of a stretch (pun not intended, but kinda funny so I left it in).
