SF Scope: Death and the Superman: A Look at the DC Comics New 52 Reboot

It's been a while since I had a review up at SF Scope, but what with the release today of Flashpoint #5 and Justice League #1, I had a few thoughts I wanted to share. I've been reading comics for pretty much my entire life, and what happened today is just as significant as what happened when DC Comics rebooted their stories in 1985-1986, with Crisis on Infinite Earths. Given how different the world is today, though, a lot more is riding on this reboot than ever did on that one.

If you're so inclined, click the link to see my article Death and the Superman: A Look at the DC Comics New 52 Reboot. And if people are interested, I'll try to provide SF Scope with reviews of all 52 #1 issues as they come out.

I'm actually so annoyed with them for the neverending crossovers/reboots the past few years (Infinite Crisis, 52, Countdown, Final Crisis, Blackest Night/Brightest Day, and now Flashpoint) that we told our comic guy I'm dropping all my DC titles as of the 52 launch. He said he's been hearing that a lot.
Does that include Wonder Woman?

I am trying to be cautiously optimistic.
Yes, which as you know is kind of major for me. But judging from the previews they're taking her in a new direction again and I'm getting really sick of it. Superman and Batman stay essentially the same, just with new villains. Why do they have to keep trying to reinvent Wonder Woman? It just weakens the character.
