Originally, I hated COIE. I loved Earth-2, and it was taken from me. However, I could see DC's point in a single universe, a single shared world. So, I said goodbye to E2 and moved on. Then it all started falling apart. All that COIE was supposed to have helped establish has been torn apart. For example, there are probably more duplicates now than when there were parallel worlds. And continuity was constantly being re-written. Wonder Woman is a founding member of the JLA. Then she isn't. Now she is again. Characters came along to replace characters only to be replaced by the original. No E2 Wonder Woman, enter Fury, enter Miss America, enter Hippoltya.

The difference between now and then is that back in the 60s - 80s, you had Thomas, Schwartz, Bridwell who knew the continuity (not saying they were perfect) and you saw these editor's notes. No one plays continuity cop anymore.

Personally, I'd be happy with one earth, one universe. I just wish DC would do a concise history/timeline or who's who and update it regularly.

That's exactly where I stand. I missed the old multiverse ... but I was content with the unitary universe. But it turned out to be even more complex and messy then the original, so what was the point?

What bothers me most about this whole affair is that the solution to replacing the original Diana is actually fairly simple, but they keep approaching it in incredibly convoluted ways.
