They might be writing great stories, but it is *such* a mess, I wouldn't know. I have been a lifelong Marvel fan. I didn't dislike DC, just never really got into those books. I saw New52 as my chance to get in on the ground floor with a DC universe that I wanted to learn about. All the characters I am vaguely familiar with, but wanted to learn them from the start. What I found was a universe that was only partially rebooted. One that wasn't any more clear to me than the one I had dabbled in growing up. The whole reboot was an absolute mess, and I had dropped ever New52 book within 5 issues.

I don't pretend to speak for every "new" DC fan, but it seems to me like they alienated a bunch of old DC fans, and turned away prospective new fans. So... maybe they broke even. And if that's the case, was it worth it?
