There are rumors circulating that DC Comics is rebooting their continuity again. Not 5G which has been cancelled with creators receiving kill fees and all, but something else. Whether true or not I thought it’d be fun to see how you guys would reboot the comics. What would you wanna see happen?
Personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing DC start from scratch and work it’s way back up. It’d take awhile to get my favorite characters (Nightwing & Titans) back, but I think it’d be worth it cuz the universe has something to work towards. And it’s the perfect opportunity to add new stories to the lore like they tried to do with Court of Owls (loved that story but never understood how or why they’re just now showing up in Batman’s career; always thought they should show up in his early career). I think it might also be good to bring in new titles and grow the universe in phases with a big event or milestone ending each phase, for example phase one leading to the formation of the JL. It’d also be cool to see titles not set within the current line of comics and I think Detective, Action Comics, and Batman Beyond are great candidates for that. Beyond could start back at 1 back in it’s own Bruce Timm universe, while Detective and Action comics continue their legacy numbering (since people seem to like that sorta thing) and maybe set together in an old universe or something starting up where they left off?
How would you do it?
