Called It!

I was bored and going through some of my old posts, and I found my original reaction to the New 52 from May 31st, 2011. I would like, specifically, to draw your attention to the statement, "No, not the "We're relaunching everything at #1!" crap. That'll be retconned away within five years, max."

DC Rebirth #1? May 25, 2016. A week before the deadline. I don't know whether to be proud or disgusted.

Also know as the five years DC lost their freaking minds. Not that we haven't gotten some good comics out of the mix, but all the good ones (Except for Batgirl, of course) could have pretty much been done in pre-Nu52 continuity without much issue.

I still don't understand what possessed them to chuck out baby, bathwater, and tub.

Last comment ever here at the esteemed Fraggmented (if this strikes you as ironic, given my last comment, then you don't understand anything at all, and good day to you all the same). You are clearly biased, sir, and this post, only two following the much-discussed one, in which you evoke an earlier post from five years ago, just to gloat about your opinion, which clearly did not change at all in all that time (five years is a long time), kind of proves it. You keep saying I don't know what I'm talking about, that I keep drawing the conversation to irrelevant points, and yet the fact remains, I could've kept my original comment to, "You're wrong," and whether or not you responded, or someone with a similar mindset responded for you, your reaction would have still been to disagree, and there would have been nothing said that could have possibly changed your mind. Try all you like, but that's what it boils down to. As Peter Pan said, "Oh, the cleverness of me." The cleverness, indeed.

If I have a bias towards accuracy and intelligent predictions of future events, then I shall simply do my best to encourage it. Feel free to comment as much as you like--so long as you can stand your points being actually considered and countered with reasoned argument and factual evidence, you are welcome to discuss anything you like.

(Which is why, I admit, I don't expect to hear from you again.)

I'd go with "proudgusted".
