Well, I have a feeling that all things will be restored in due time. The New 52 didn't work and DC has slowly been added more and more Pre-Flashpoint history back into canon. I'd say it's only a matter of time before most of it is back in canon. As it should be. I'm VERY happy to see the New 52 die a slow painful death. It never should have existed in the first place.
It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
