Dear Planet Earth,
Speaking of imperative social issues, I’m not sure how I feel about the future of the DC Universe. In case that made absolutely no sense to you, DC Comics recently decided to start all of their titles over again with all new story lines. This means Superman, Batman, and yes, even Red Tornado will start all the way back at issue one.
Except these new issues aren’t issues at all in the physical sense, but solely digital comics. And although many of these titles are labeled #1, they don’t present our heroes from their origins. In fact, the Blue Boy Scout and the Dark Knight are supposedly already well-known heroes in the new universe. The whole situation is confusing and makes me wonder why I spent years and years reading these stories if they don’t even matter in the current continuity.
On the other hand, you do need to mix things up every twenty years or so. Lord knows Marvel has its share of characters who could use an edgy update.
Well, this is slowly turning into a very nerdy blog, isn’t it?
