  • JLA (Johns/Finch) being regarded as the "world's most dangerous heroes."
  • Johns assures each character has a proper agenda/reason for being on the roster (here's looking at you, Catwoman fans).
  • Quick discussion of 'H'el on Earth.'  H'el will be "on par" with Doomsday and kick Superman out of his fortress. 
  • Scott Snyder walks up to the stage to discuss 'Death of the Family.'  As expected, the crowd goes crazy.
  • Snyder is incredibly humble, thanks the audience for the positive reaction to latest issue of BATMAN.
  • Snyder says it will be the "Biggest, craziest Joker story."
  • Says Joker believes he has been making Batman stronger by always testing him.  Now the Bat-family is slowing him down and he needs to eliminate them to save Batman.
  • Jokes about Alfred's fate... "maybe we'll kill him... maybe we won't."
  • Jeff Lemire says he and Snyder have been working on 'Rotworld' since issue 1.  Called it big in scope and will encompass the entire N52 universe. (Green Lantern on cover but face wasn't seen... my money is on Baz)
  • JL DARK'S annual will be the "best issue of the book."
  • ALL STAR WESTERN will have Jonah Hex going back to the future and teaming up with Adam Strange.
  • LEGION OF SUPERHEROES will see a new Fatal Five.  Technology across the universe will be "screwed up."
  • Deadshot ISN'T dead.
  • Suicide Squad's relationship with one another and Amanda Waller to undergo drastic change.  Oh, and once again, someone else will die.
  • Andrew Bennett becomes the ultimate bad guy in I,VAMPIRE when he accidentally absorbs all of the evil from vampires.  
  • Justin Jordan says TEAM 7 will answer how Dinah becomes Black Canary and explain a lot about how Deathstroke and Grifter become the men they currently are.
  • Jordan also spoke about DEATHSTROKE, saying he'll put a heavy emphasis on Slade's intellect.
  • RAVAGERS are "done running" and there will be a bigger focus on Rose Wilson and Warblade.
  • DEMON KNIGHTS to go 30 years in the future.
  • SWORD OF SORCERY to have a "Game of Thrones feel to it."
  • Q&A begins... someone asks Superman vs Goku.  Everyone laughs and the panel confidently says 'Superman.'
  • Q: "Will we see Ted Kord?"  A: "Never say never."
  • Q: "Where are Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain?!"  A: "Keep reading."
As promised... covers!

i don't get what the fascination with Cassandra Cain and steph are.. i could swear i didn't hear all this when they were around other than the mian bat girl fn boys/girls. I never heard in pre 52. WE NEED MORE STPEH AND CASSANDRA! There cool characters but they arnt that cool where theyd make it to my top 10..pshh not even my top 50. maybe top 60 if anything if we are counting all DC characters.

I more concerned on the progression of story for the current DC characters.

Eclipso is never good news and he looks EPIC !!! One of my favorite villains !! (except when he was Sue)

is that... Man-Bat??

I could care less about Deadshot, unless is in Arrow

Constantine looks kinda Dumb in that cover, kinda like Justin Timberlake, doing cosplay

Ravagers and American Vampire for me, PLEASE !!!

Steel looks so much awesome without the cape and yes, I too think that's Baz

and I think I'm picking up Deathstroke again, I've always liked Slade

Yeah, DC also thought Catwoman fans would approve of a cheap BATMAN RETURNS origin. They seem to care as much about character motivation as I do about what color shirt to wear in the morning.

Yet again, another non-answer when it comes to Cassandra. They say the same thing each year, and each year nothing. Let's face it. They have no plan for Cassie.

So... the Joker's motivation is the same as Zoom's? Really?

Anyway, all this stuff does look/sound awesome and I'm glad they're trying to keep I, Vampire alive.

Animal Man has been "The Never Ending Story" since issue 1. They built up the Swamp Thing crossover for so long that I'm over it all ready. I'm still buying the title but not enjoying as much as I would have if they just got to it a few issues faster.

Swampy in the batcave, on the other hand, with Man-bat. That's something new. Looking forward to that issue.

Then ignore it. Cass and Steph fans appreciate any bit of news they hear. If it bothers you, too bad.

I think you're misinterpreting my statement (if you're not, I don't understand the hostility)

I meant it in regards to DC editorial giving us the runaround. As somebody who considers myself a huge fan of the two (more so of Cass, but still a big Steph fan), I'm tired of being strung along. Either say that they don't exist, or say that you don't want to use them, but give a definitive answer one way or another. Not 'oh, they still exist' or 'oh, they'll turn up eventually'. It's tiresome and provides a false sense of hope.

@Mercy_: Batman, Wally West, Donna Troy, Cass and Steph show up and fight off Pandora and the Justice League to restore the universe. This event will happen 2 years from now. But you didn't hear it from me.

It's also a huge lie.

God. I love Jeff Lemire but I have too many darn books, and figured I'd drop JLD after the Annual and the current arc. But it seems like he'll be able to string me along for some more time. Maybe. Definitely.

@zackattack529: because pre 52 Stephanie had her own book and Cass was showing up in various bat books. since the reboot we havent seen them. but Raven finally showed up in phantom stranger. cant wait for that storyline to be told

@Mercy_:

well Lady Shiva is going to be in Nightwing, with her being Cassandra's mom maybe that could lead to bringing her in (maybe working with the league of assassins at first or undercover to take them down from the inside out) and teaming up with Nightwing. as for steph i think it would be cool if she became Barbara's sidekick/partner. keep the spoiler name but update the costume, it could be great if handled right

Yikes! That better have been a joke about Alfred! They sure are diplomatic on their answer regarding Kord in never saying never, aren't they? And Stephanie Brown and Cassanda Cain? Still the runaround ::Sighs:: All these revelations are truly awesome, and the covers are stellar! Is that Eclipso on the Team 7 cover I'm assuming?? Brilliant!

I agree with you and Linkara. Most of these redesigns are very early 90's Image comics and l hate those.

Having said that, in my opinion, if there was one character who desperately needed a redesign, it was Eclipso.

I dunno, I kinda like it. I mean, shirtless designs are always a bit awkward, but the whole "magic fantasy warrior" look works here.
