Nightwing sees Dick begin to piece together his life again, and he now remembers the time he proposed to Barbra Gordon in pre-flashpoint. The flashbacks still see him wearing a different version of his Robin outfit though.

I would say its for the better because the short pants don't cut with the modern day. I was not thrilled seeing Barbara kiss Jason Bard in the last Batgirl issue. Maybe there is still hope.

Zarius, did you read Titans Hunt miniseries from 2016? I was wondering if it was worth a read.

Bard's just a rebound and Babs is hurting from Ric rejecting her and seeing him with Bea. I'm perceiving that she sees Bard as someone she can 'fix' in a way she couldn't 'fix' Dick, but we all know every time Dick re-enters her life, she's with someone and eventually those relationships fall apart because she loves him too much and they get back together.

I'm not as big on modern Titans as much as I should be, so no, I haven't read it.

I read Batgirl but not Nightwing, so I am not familar with Bea. I know Didio does not like them together, but its the one relationship that seems more realistic than Bruce/Selina. The whole thing with Bard, there is the fake dislike and secret crush he had on Barbara and when he originally appeared they dated in the early 70s'. By the time she took the Congressional role it was swept away.

Since it focused on the original 60s'/70s' group I was curious if Titans: Hunt was any good. I don't care for Titans beyond 1985's Tales#55. Everything after that just seems to be dragged on plots after the original plots had wrapped. Also Prez was gone which is what i feel also hurt the series more than fans would like to admit.

What is the in-story reason for revealing his identity to the world? I thought he prided being a normal Earth human and able to protect Lois and his parents among others as Whatever Happened To The Man of Tomorrow proves. Green Arrow might as well go public. How many blonde beard goatee men are there in Star City? Especially with Oliver Queen being a public figure.

Clark just feels it's time to be more truthful, in light of the revelations about his father Jor-El's hand in Krypton's destruction and his new responsibilities to the United Planets as Earth's president. Also, he doesn't want Lois slut-shamed after she was caught making out with him while being Superman, making her look unfaithful to Clark.

Seconded.

Also, Jor-el destroyed Krypton which is why he knew it was going to blow up?

But this is edgy and new! Even though I remember these same kinds of storylines in the 90s and 2000s, like the "Death of Clark Kent" around Superman #100.

Whenever Bendis gets bored on the book or when DC figures out that nobody cares that he's writing it, they'll have Zatanna will make the world forget it or something.

April solicitations are out and there's nothing there that grabs my attention, feels like everything is again in holding pattern mode until the summer/fall when the next set of adjustments/relaunches occur.

I see Catwoman is getting a new creative team, and 'Ric' is going back to his old Nightwing costume even if he's still not fully Dick again. Bat books are building to yet another Joker event.

Wonder Woman#750 kicked off the new post-Doomsday Clock timeline for DC, Diana debuts in 1939, and apparently the Bombshells are no longer an elseworld.

I am a fan of Dick Grayson as Robin so I went with which one looked cooler with him. I agree with the 2010 cover, but I am getting this for Mr. Grayson alone.

Voltron,did you want the Green Ranger figure you inquired about after I gave you the information?

Tomasi has leaned on cults three times in under a year. There was the cult that was after Jim Corrigan and we just completed the two part story about the failed actor creating a Norse cult. Then right affter that Two Face has The Church of 2. Too many cults in too little time and Batman even references it in the recording he makes in the epilogue of Detective Comics#1019. Clown Prince and heir to the vigilante throne? Joker and Dick Grayson some how get involved? Perhaps whatever with the Designer and assassins arc will crossover into this?
https://www.cbr.com/review-detective-comics-1019/
That being said I did enjoy the norse cult story I don't want a repeated pattern of cults and forced continuity of other titles if Joker is involved in the end of the upcoming storyarc.

So Doomsday Clock happened in a splinter timeline also, revealed in today's issue of Justice League. And the idea is, again, that every DC title that doesn't "fit" with the the tie-in events or group and team up books is a splinter of reality, allowing heroes to be in multiple places and situations at once regardless of where they are in other books.

I was hopeful that The Riddler was finally being righted with the current Batman arc. If what we got a glimpse of in Batman#87 is an indication probably not. He was shriveled and naked watching Gotham for three straight months. That is his solution to improving himself after his conversation with Lex Luthor. I got shades of Jim Carray's Riddler in Batman Forever as well as Danny Devito's Penguin from Batman Returns. Tyion seems to be channeling the films from our childhood.

DC is always having reality altering ramifications and altering the characters usually for the negative. Marvel is not any better.' Tis comics I suppose.

More like it's early synergy with Matt Reeves' Batman movie, which features a lot of the villains that this arc is focusing on.

It's focused on the same quartet featured in Batman: The Movie and whatever shared secret they have. Probably will lead into Batman/Catwoman. So are these four the core rogues and Two Face, Mr. Freeze, and Poison Ivy not?

Anyone else read Detective Comics annual?

So how long before Alferd comes back?
