    I thought they had killed him off. I can't wait to see how they reintroduce him.

    They did, but Pre-52, so anything goes. I think this is from Synder's "All-Star Batman", so I'm not sure how this fits into the current status quo.

    Was that pre52? I thought it he was killed in the new52 as well. Still, it'll be interesting to have him back.

    So, did Batman #84 contain anything regarding The Button?

    It reveals how Flashpoint Batman exists on Earth 0:
    Reverse Flash decides to save him, as revenge for killing him. He then sets off for the button.

    The way they've treated him for the majority of the time they've owned the character -- plus the circumstances around them gaining the character to begin with -- make it hard for me to think of him as "DC's" Captain Marvel.

    Hal Jordan and John Stewart Team Up in Green Lantern: Earth One Vol 2, Summer 2020

    I loved Volume 1. Can't wait for Volume 2!

    Hal Jordan and John Stewart must team up to save the last Green Lantern Guardian from an evil force!

    Manhunters, alien races, rings of power–it’s a lot for the people of Earth to absorb. Especially when an interplanetary incident forces their protector, Hal Jordan, to leave on a rescue mission that results in the discovery that there’s a new player in the galaxy: Yellow Lanterns!

    While they seem a benign force for peace, Jordan can’t get comfortable with how much power they wield, or their bizarre, lockstep behavior. When fellow Earthling John Stewart ends up with a yellow ring, he and Hal must work together to confront the being who destroyed the original Green Lantern Corps–the last surviving Guardian.

    Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman feature two of the most famous DC characters, Hal Jordan and John Stewart, like you’ve never seen them before!

    I'm not able to judge the rewrites that have happened over the years to Capt Marvel's history. But I think that Marvel has had a fantastic and unique history/characters' gallery, and I think the new reboot has done fairly well with them. The introduction of new characters/concepts (King Kid the Peter Pan villain, the Seven Realms) is still ongoing and I think they're going to suit Capt Marvel well.

    (BTW, the new 52 featured the Darklands, the realm of death, which featured the spirits of the classic pre-52 Marvel family, who may make a possible return. Something curious to note IMO.)

    The New 52's Billy Batson being a cynical 15-year-old orphan is markedly different from the classic optimistic orphan, but I think that reflects how "edgy" children have become since the 2000s (or earlier?), and it addresses the fact that a child is not ready or supposed to wield these powers. I'd like Batson to be more like a child, but I can understand the change to cynicism.

    With Freddy Freeman, his history with Capt Nazi may have been removed for the better.

    Ironically, I prefer Shazam as a classic wizard with the robe/beard, and I didn't really care for him becoming an Aborigine (apparently he's Mamaragan, the god of lightning).

    No Mr. Banjo or Adolf Hitler? Still, looks promising.

    I feel bad about this, but I kind of hate the new Marvel family that DC has been pushing since Flashpoint. I’m all for diversity in comics, but the way DC approached these characters just screams tokenism. It also seriously waters down the brand when there are now six Captain Marvels all running around together. From what I’ve seen the new characters all seem really one-note, too.

    ...compared to Billy, Mary, and Freddie before Flashpoint? Really?

    It also doesn't help that they seemingly took away the Jewish ancestry of one of the characters in the book -- Freddy.

    Yeah. I can't speak for Cap Jr., but I can think of multiple comics that did cool things with Billy and Mary as characters.

    @SouthtownKid

    I’m certain you had some issue with Deathstroke’s closing story, due it’s inclusion of a version of him from the Dark Multiverse. Which you have made your disdain for clear.

    Unless you somehow had no issue with it in this case.
