I'll definitely give this book a shot for a few issues. I've been buying some DC books as of late. BatMan, Justice League, and following this new event, Prelude to Metal (which it sounds like this book will spring from), and the Watchmen/Dr. Manhattan connection stuff. Its been really enjoyable and better than Marvel's offerings. If someone had told me five years ago I'd be purchasing more Dc than Marvel I would have told them they were nuts.
Grimm, I did pick up Forge and it does introduce Mr Terrific back into the world and it looks like Batman has Plasticman in some sort of stasis device because there was a level of concern over what he might do(and he mentions having extracted the molecules from his body he needs?). There's quite a lot going on in it, and (such a surprise) Batman's got secrets and one of them is a team of Outsiders including Metamorpho.
So my dream that they emulate an FF type rocket crash may not happen.
