Changing a persons race for the sake of it, is a dumb decision and goes both ways. Id be ultra pissed if Blade was white, or Kyle Rayner was Asian, or if Iron Fist was Puerto Rican. But we live in a PC world of comics so those changes will happen along with a transgender Supergirl

There has been a Supergirl who was a "protoplasmic matrix" and could shapeshift to look as a human woman... but somehow you draw the line at a transgender Supergirl.

Now tell me that you not only don't hate transgender people, but you even have many transgender friends, please.

I really dislike that uniform. It's too busy. The Flash's classic sleek red design is perfect. It's smooth, it's skin-tight. Even the armor lines of the first New 52 design were a bit too much, IMO.

Whatever fictional "in universe" excuse they try, the truth is that the CHORFs and Social Justice Warriors wouldn't shut up about "sexism" etc in comics and this is throwing them a bone.

Let's play "Spot the bitter GamerGater!".

I won!

But... hey! At least JL #40 claims that "Existance was once again reborn...", refering to The New 52, "... but it has yet to solidify... ... because the world has been unraveled and rebuilt again and again to the point of obfuscation." That, paired with the fact that Mobius/Anti-Monitor outwardly dismisses Convergence and Brainiac's effort as "nothing", should be telling enough. We're probably going to get a new reboot--either "soft" as in Flashpoint or "hard" as in COIE--sooner or later.

I trust Johns's Darkseid War to set things right. Or, at least, make them less confusing.

Isn't Convergence and Secret Wars like exactly the same? They're both about universes being meshed together and features classic universes and storylines, right?

The premise is very similar, though the outcome promises to be substantially different. DC is treating Convergence like a very fanservice-driven summer event, while the company finishes the move out from New York to the West Coast. When Convergence is over, the vast majority of the current continuity will continue to be in place (although DC is dropping "The New 52" as a title). Some characters from previous continuities will continue to be published now or in the near future, according to DiDio, but you won't be seeing any kind of reboot or turn back to pre-Flashpoint DC.

Secret Wars, on the other hand, is more similar to Flashpoint in that sense: it is being used by Marvel as a "soft reboot", meaning that the continuity that comes out from it will be substantially altered (like the incorporation of Miles Morales into the "main" universe), although it will follow the same general basic lines as before. So, just like The New 52.

So smart, cancel the campaign when you have enough money and you don't owe fans anthing!

So smart, not knowing how Kickstarter works and still making bold claims!

Oh, wow. The art. Somebody needs to turn that wind machine off, because both hairs and capes are wildly flying around. And somebody please tell the JLU to stop standing like they are striking a pose...
