DC’s Rebirth: In Your Best Arnold Voice, “It’s Not A Reboot!”

Rebirth-it-never-was-b3885

DC gets a lot of flack from some for their various reboots of continuity.  Some of which is justified, like the mess that the New 52 left DC continuity in.  Marvel claims to have never rebooted their continuity.  Not on a grand scale like DC’s Crisis anyway.  But what do you call something like One More Day Marvel?  Besides a slap in the face to fans.  (IMO).

While Marvel seems to get a free pass on the whole “reboot” thing, they are constantly relaunching their line and doing soft reboots along the way.  How many of your favorite Marvel books have had new #1’s in the past couple of years?  I think Spider-Gwen which debuted in 2014 has already had 9 #1 issues!  (That’s possibly an exaggeration.)  The point is, Marvel is just as guilty in their own way.

And DC is hoping that by following the “Marvel model” with #1’s, a soft reboot and not a Crisis/Flashpoint/New 52 style reboot, fans will cut them some slack as well.

More on DC Rebirth’s “it’s not a reboot” after the cut.

Legends Of Tomorrow Trailer…The Atom Actually Shrinks This Time

routh-atomSo, the CW has had a lot of success with Arrow and The Flash, so why not use some more characters from their combined universe that Watson already hates as a concept to make a team show?

Legends of Tomorrow is that show, featuring the Atom, a resurrected Sara Lance as the White Canary, Captain Cold and Heat Wave, Firestorm, Hawkgirl, and a Rip Hunter with that smarmy demeanor that makes you just want to pop the guy in the face.  With what looks like a guest appearance at least by the Flash, and Vandal Savage as a bad guy who may have a giant robot, well, it has the potential to be fun.

Oh, and Ray Palmer finally shrinks.

Trailer after the cut.
