I should really be sleeping....

Sooooo, what do we think of the "DCU reboot"? If you don't already know, in September they will be relaunching the DCU with new costumes, new origins, and new characters, and 52 titles restarting at issue #1.

Quotes of relevancy: "We really want to inject new life in our characters and line.... This was a chance to start, not at the beginning, but at a point where our characters are younger and the stories are being told for today's audience."

And, "[L]et me just reiterate this point: this is the launch of the New DCU. It is not a “reboot.” I think you will soon discover why that is."

That second statement is interesting. I guess we'll have to wait and see what exactly they mean by that. It makes me wonder if we're panicking overly much, but... I'm having trouble gelling it with the first statement. And you know, I get it, they have to do this occasionally, it's important... post-Crisis continuity is more relevant to me and my generation than the Golden Age stuff, and I enjoy it more... but it, too, will eventually become out-of-date. I just selfishly wish this wouldn't happen to me. I can't help but be worried, and feel like my heart is going to break more than a little. The current continuity has this long, rich history with so many characters... and there's just not going to be room for them all if we start "at a point where our characters are younger". What's going to happen to Steph? And Damian? And Cass and Tim and Jay? And characters like Colin Wilkes, who have such amazing potential that just hasn't been explored yet?

I just... I really don't know what to think. Apprehension is the word of the day.
