Selfish DC Reboot Concerns

While DC takes its sweet time revealing all the new #1 isssues, I've had a lot of time to speculate on what may or may not happen to some of the characters I haven't heard much (or anything) about as of yet.

Batman: Looks like Bruce will be the only Batman, and they're not getting rid of Damien. I'm wondering what direction they'll be taking with that. Seeing the solicit, and yes, facial features on characters mean a lot to me, Damien looks a little too smiley. Im very skeptical of where they're going with Bruce and Damien's relationship. I've got mixed feelings on Barbara becoming Batgirl again. To me, Barbara Gordon is Oracle, and I've really really been enjoying Steph's run as Batgirl. There's really no word yet on what's gonna happen to her. I just hope she doesn't disappear. It's good to see Dick as Nightwing again, but I'm not getting good vibes off the costume. Petty? Maybe, but that's just not the Nightwing I'm used to.

JSA: The only news I've heard is that they're getting yet another new creative team. The new Hawkman, and Mr Terrific titles are already on my list, but what's gonna happen to the team? One theory going around is that it'll just be the originals Flash, Green Lantern, Wildcat,etc. If that's the case, what happens to all those new characters? I've become totally attatched to them. It's bad enough we don't see enough of any of them since JSA All Stars was cancelled and everyone's been thrown back into the main title. I guess this is a To Be continued for now.

Birds Of Prey: How could there be BOP without Oracle??? Or Lady Blackhawk? Or Huntress? Again, Barbara as Batgirl again isn't too too bad, but how could they have BOP without her? Now, there could be chance, and I'm really hoping this, that she will be involved, but it just doesnt seem right. One of my favorite characters of this title was Lady Blackhawk. She hasn't appeared in any other titles so I'm hoping she doesnt disappear too. Oh and I don't like Katana's (if that's her) costume. I can live with Black Canary's but that one just looks odd.

JLA: Well, there just aren't enough words..... I'll be picking it up, but not each character's title. Maybe just Wonder Woman and Flash. They're getting enough of my money.

At first I hated the idea of a reboot, but after seeing some of the titles I'm intrigued. Not excited, but intrigued. What's funny is the creators are just gushing over it. We'll have to wait and see if it's worth all this.
