    so if this is an "Elseworlds" story, what does this mean for the 52 worlds? is this story occuring on one of those worlds or has DC abandoned the 52 concept?

    I hope the 52 concept isn't going to be ignored but DC shouldn't adhere to it, either. Hopefully, Morrison's upcoming multiverse series will address this. I always thought setting a fixed, low number to their parallel earths concept was a boneheaded move.

    Glad to see the Elseworlds concept back, and I'm surprised DC took this long to get around to this story. I do wonder what format this will be in and how much it will cost. The format DC used to run Elseworlds in would probably cost $7.00 or so an issue, in which case I will regretably have to pass. Hopefully it will be standard format, reasonably priced & there will be future Elseworlds tales to feature characters other than Superman, Batman, JLA & Wonder Woman.

    That certainly piqued my interest.

    I initially thought the same in terms of what setting those limits meant for the concept itself (and fans who enjoy it) in the long term. Then I reconsidered it and realized it was an interesting idea that attracted the attention of the fans and it didn't mean it couldn't be changed and expanded, eventually. Which is what's happening, apparently.
