Stuff I don't like about the New 52

Now we've all enjoyed most of the re branding that DC has gone through over the past two years, but here's some stuff I just can't rock with. A list of complaints if you will. The list will most likely grow and please feel free to add on. Some of these complaints are about stuff that's in progress but atm I gotta question and gripe about.

Why did Joker cut his face off only to return and slap that shit back on with clamps? (I'll credit that to insanity)

Also, where the fuck WAS the Joker for that whole year? Did he really spend a year underground just to come back with this plot of recreating him and batman's first encounters? (hopefully will be explained later on)

Lois Lane not with Superman. Okay I really didn't care about this one untill....

Superman and Wonder Woman are messing with each other. Stop! No! Dear God please do not let this shit happen. I'm tired of this cliche' ass pairing. Please tell me Batman is about to Fayettenam bomb this shit to pieces.

Speaking of Batman, I just gotta say...5 fucking books? Don't get me wrong, Batman will always and forever be that nigga...but FIVE FUCKING BOOKS? They really gave this nigga 5 books all surrounded by what Batman's doing? We got Batman, Batman: The Dark Knight, Batman and Robin, then Batman Incorporated, and Detective Comics. You telling me DC got no other characters in the background somewhere that can get a run? Is that what you're telling me? Because it sounds like that's exactly what you're telling me. Nobody else can get a solo run? My nigga Jackson Hyde(Aqualad) can't get no tick? SMH

More Starling. That bitch is trill

Why is Static not with the Teen Titans yet?

Starfire forgetting who she was and basically letting the whole team smash

This third wave of series is wack.

Even though it's been good so far wtf thought Animal Man was deserving of a solo?

It seems like I'm waiting long as hell for a new issue each month.

    Co sign batman having 5 fucking books. I follow Detective, Dark Knight, and Batman. Batman being my favorite so far. I follow Nightwing too.

    It was in the first couple issues of Darknight that joker cut off his face and gave it to the villain (cant remember his fucking name) so joker could disappear for awhile, they all assumed joker was dead. Goes into it a little bit in suicide squad too.

    Co sign new waves being whack, i like Dial H and im trying to give Phantom Stranger a shot but dunno how long ill be following.

    Gotta pick up that new Talon book tho, the court of the owls storyline was dope as fuck.

    I know about them thinking he was dead and whatnot but wtf was the point? Dude cut his face off then dipped for a whole year. Then comes back and is trying to recreate all of him and Batman's past encounters. I mean did it take him a whole year to get all the info on the batman family and come up with this plan because this shit is so unnecessary right now.

    I think that was the point. My memory is a bit foggy, but i just read Suicide Squad #14 and Joker said while hes been away he has been keeping tabs on Harley (and im assuming everyone else). He knew about Harley and Deadshot hooking up and he beat the hell out of her. It was a pretty dope issue. Ill try re reading the early detective comics and gettin back to you, i beleive it was detective 1-4 or something that explained better why the joker left.

    Idk if it's ether in the sense that Batman wanted her himself (we'll have to see next issue...which is like a month away) but more so that he don't like this fucking with the team chemistry and also the fact that these are the two most powerful metas on the planet getting together

    And that was/is still retarded. No reason to have five fucking books. Cats didn't like Wolverine on all them squads back then either. Homie was with the x-force, x-men, his own book, avengers, and...some other book I'm forgetting all at the same damn time. He was overexposed like a muhfucka. That's the reason why you got a growing base of cats who don't like Wolverine. i'm saying though two of them books could have gone to some other character

    Yall forget, they tried the WW supes pairing before way way back in the day but fan boys rioted because it was cliche, so they went with bats.

    Now they like fuck it, we need a change plus it does make logical sense, Damien wayne killed any moment the WW/Bats romance could of had. Plus supes needs a change from damn Lois Lane, it's like how spidey needed a break from MJ with one more day

    In a historical context, Supes and The Batman have always been in different titles. In the Golden Age Supes was in Action, Superman, and he co-starred with The Batman and Robin in The World's Finest Comics. The Batman was in his own title and of course 'Tec.

    In the Silver Age, there were those "Superman Family," books such as Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen, Superman's Girlfriend Lois Lane, Superboy and Adventure Comics, which featured Superboy.

    When we get to the 80's, DC put The Batman in The Outsiders. Finally, we can't forget Supes and The Batman's carious stints in the Justice League.

    Co-sign. Niggas seemed to forget that X-Men damn near got canceled, (the same with Detective Comics). That's how Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Banshee, Apache, and Wolverine came to be, boost sales of X-Men. If you notice, in those early issues Logan is more of a supporting character, if anything, the book is about Jean, Scott, and the Phoenix. After that, Ororo takes centerstage and Claremont goes into the "big sister, little sister," aspect of their relationship.

    As Wolverine didn't get popular until the Wolverine and Kitty Pride miniseries and Logan didn
    't become the mutants breakout character, until the Mutant Massacre. Claremont and Bryne intended for Kurt to be the breakout character.

    I know Marvel and DC are beholden to their shareholders, but the brass at these companies often loose sight as to what sells comics, that's good storytelling and good artwork.

    In terms of the more mainstream heroes I like what they've done with Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and The Flash. I don't like how condensed the Batman timeline is now and all the dumb changes and inconsistencies that brings. I don't like that the last Booster Gold series was basically thrown in the trash while Green Lantern gets to act like nothing has happened.

    Batman has different books because he's a cash cow for the company. Just like Green Lantern. Yeah DC Comics your aim as a comic publisher is to make money off of comic books but you won't make money off of comic books that will bring in easy money? not gonna happen.

    The books also appeal to different audiences. I think the flagship book under Snyder sucks but is hilariously entertaining because it's so bad. Morrison's Inc is the only one that I actually buy with pride because it always feels worth the money. The Dark Knight is trying to go for a more darker type of psychology type of tone.

    Detective is sticking to Batman being...a detective. Batman & Robin is about exploring his relationship with his son. Legends of the Dark Knight is more in the adventurous tone of the bronze age comics books. Just because there are multiple Batman books on the market it doesn't mean you MUST read all of them. People like Batman for different reasons and now they have more options to choose from to suit their tastes better.
