Extraordinary. That Reads Like a belated April fool Gag for the fans from Newsarama, and if it wasn't for the scans as provenance I would have dismissed it as such.
Succumbing to temptation and reading that piece I shake my head in profound dissapointment at the contentrather than a sense of excitement.
I have read too much of this sort of fan-service from DC at this point in time, the notion that continually regurgitating its own continuity and deleted canon will bring in the readership it needs is completely wrong as all the publisher is doing is driving its product into an ever smaller niche audience of old fans rather than the wider general audience. How, in the span of just five years, have we gone from a vision for a fresh restart aimed at attracting new readers to so determinedly chasing the erased past and muddying both the waters and title characters with dead continuity?
This publisher has lost all sense of where it wants to go. NEEDS to go.
I actually applaud them if true, as that would mean that we are returning back to the DCU that I was used to, of one that had loving relationships, hope, and was opposite of the dark and griity of marvel!
