Ignoring how many of these events have had the word “Crisis” in it since Dan DiDio took over at DC Comics, it does seem like he’s trying to restore the style of the New 52, the one rejected by DC fans, as well as acting on his hatred of the Teen Titans. Sure, Heroes In Crisis also killed off some minor characters because that’s how DC does events; with body counts. But killing off beloved characters simply because Dan hates them (he’s been wanting to off Nightwing for years) is going to destroy all the good will DC created with Rebirth after the failings of the New 52/DC You.
I got to do this one on my laptop in the art corner. That made me happy.
