Two things: Hawkman and Mr.Terrific
There are some aspects of old universe that should be add to New 52
Doesn't matter as long as the stories good
Two things: Hawkman and Mr.Terrific
Jason Todd and Tim Drakes "new" origins. They are garbage.
I don't understand the hate for Joker's face being cut off. I think it's freakin terrifying, and shows (literally) how much of a human Joker isn't.
Buffy: Season 9
Ultimate Spider-Man~Ultimate X-Men~The Ultimates
Batman~Green Arrow~Justice League~Superman: Unchained
I really don't understand the hate for strong Atlanteans. I mean, is that really such a problem, that one Atlantean was able to punch Superman once??? I think its just another example of people on these forums being incredibly nitpicky.
Generally speaking, I like to ignore the first six issues of Blue Beetle. As a shallow retread of the pre-Flashpoint origin for Jaime, it both missed the point of what made that run enjoyable, and demonstrated every one of the "dark and gritty" fears that everyone had for the new Universe as a whole.
Likewise, the constant referrals to a "Bat Family" when these characters have shown little-to-no affection or chemistry so far. Tim Drake, in particular, always looks out of place in the "Batman's Trusted Figures" line-ups because, well, he doesn't do anything. Or talk to anyone. It's exactly the kind of lazy "relying on past history" characterisation that the New 52 was meant to reduce.
I find it pretty hard to accept that Damien Wayne is Damien Wayne.
Most of all, I find it pretty hard to accept how much Green Lantern has pretty much killed any momentum it had into a rather turgid mess. And I say that was someone who likes Simon Baz. But the Third Army stuff has been a total squib, and a real disappointment from the writers who made the Sinestro Corps such a threat.
Oooooh, that's another one. I don't accept that Green Lantern history happened the same way. I've been enjoying the Hal/Sinestro dynamic - but it's pretty much impossible to buy if you count the characters' dynamics before Blackest Night.
Ooooh, and it's hard to accept that talented writers thought any of the first 12 issues of Firestorm were a good idea, or that they had something worth pursueing with the JLI.
Generally speaking, I like a lot of the New 52 though. For instance, unlike a lot of people, I totally accept that Batman would unmask to Hal Jordan under the circumstances in Justice League.
Oh, and that Wizards Stole The Question's Face.
...that's a tough one to accept. Seems kind of unfair to count it though when it seems to be tieing into something quite interesting. And it's not really any harder to take than that period he went around calling himself a "shamen", talked to cities, and defeated Lex Luthor by corrupting his Ley Lines by killing a bunch of people and burying them in the foundations of a building.
http://forums.comicbookresources.com...1#post15691626...what made the Joker's face terrifying was that it wasn't a mask--it was his own face. Unlike Batman who has to dress up as a bat in order to frighten criminals, the Joker doesn't have to wear a disguise in order to frighten people; his visage of a laughing, creepy-looking clown is all he needs to be terrifying. To have him essentially wear a mask in order to induce horror, fear, and terror diminishes and misunderstands this very concept.
Granted, the Joker's new mask made from the skin of his own face is creepy and horror inducing, but it is the wrong kind of horror to attribute to someone like the Joker, and doesn't even make any sense given his character. It works for someone like Leatherface of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre because it actually ties in with what that character and his family does, in that they re-use the remnants of their cannibalized victims. It even made sense for the Dollmaker character in Tony Daniel's first Detective Comics story in that that character used a similar MO. But the MO of the Joker, on the other hand, was that he sets out to make people as insane as himself, to show that, deep down, they are no different than him. His face is the face of the darkness within us all, exposed for everyone to see. And it didn't have to take a mask made from his own flesh to get that point across.
