So, after months of trying to catch up in DC, literally still in like July of 2014. I have decided it's never going to happen and I'm just gonna pick up with the current books and go from there. The hope being that eventually it'll all just sort of catch me up organically with the relevant details.
But, there are some things I don't want to skip, mostly the big event things (and big character changing moments), so my question to you all is what in your opinion fall into that category? Here's what I have so far:
Uprising and Godhead (Green Lantern books)
Grayson (and most of the new books that got started relatively recently, including things like Klarion, Starfire, and Lobo)
Worlds' End and Futures End
Convergence (probably not the tie-ins, just the main story)
And potentially whatever else that started late 2014/early 2015 that I am not aware of because I'm so damn behind.
@the_stegman: Well in the daughters defense she didn't know anything about what was happening. Her mother and brother were intentionally not telling her. I imagine she just kinda put it together on her own that something was wrong, but who instantly goes to "people are getting sick and eating other people"?
I at least like that they are taking chances and doing really different things with their characters and not just reverting everyone back to the same old way of things.
Johnny and Ben joining the Inhumans and Guardians, respectively
Gambit teaming up with Daredevil
and now MJ finally doing her own thing outside of Peter Parker's universe (to what extent remains to be seen, but this is a step)
Now if they would just do the same thing with Emma Frost. Rip her away from Cyclops...there is literally no reason she needs to be with him anymore, and it annoys me they just tack her on to everything he does because I love her so much and want her to be on her own for a while.
