Justice League the Birth of a New(?) DC UniverseJune 1, 2011
So following DC’s Mega Event, Flashpoint we will be treated to the creation of a brand new DC universe. According to USA Today, and DC’s own blog, this August will see a reimagination of the Birth of the Justice League which will launch us into a new universe.
A reboot on this scale hasn’t been attempted since the Crisis on Infinite Earths, and I do not think it’s neccesary.
Of course the part of this I find hilarious is the statement that DC is, “revamping characters such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and others from its 76-year history for a more modern and diverse 21st century.”
It’s revamping for a more diverse 21st century but we’re going back to an all white, one woman, JLA from the multi-ethnic multi-woman JLA of more recent incarnations?
Does that make sense?
More on this story as it breaks.
