|Batman: Back to the Well #1|
The New DC Universe starts today. Regardless of mine or anyone’s feelings this is happening and it will affect the state of DC Comics for the foreseeable future possibly for the better, possibly for the worse. I’m sure by the end of the year we’ll know have a better idea which way things are leaning. Yesterday I ran through about half of the upcoming DC titles. Today we’ll look at the other half.
I will mention one thing before I get into it. It has been announced (Via Twitter? Groan) that Stephanie Brown will be appearing in the New DCU as The Spoiler. We already knew her tenure of Batgirl is over but I assumed she was going on the shelf along several other characters DC can’t seem to decide where they fit into all of this. I’m torn on this. As you may recall I love The Spoiler but I was warming up to Steph as Batgirl. I think I’ll be happy that she’ll be around but I’d be lot happier if she was starring in an ongoing feature. How about a Black Bat/Spoiler team up book? I’d buy the hell out of that.
Still no answers about whether she was ever Robin or even Batgirl in this new universe. Oh well, we’ll see soon enough.
More Reboot Titles after the jump.
