I searched around and didn't find any Multiverse.

Not gonna bother to link.  The news is all over the place.  Feige is saying that these properties, among others are in development.  Sounds good to me.

kc, I'm ashamed to admit that after all these years on various boards together, I can't remember whether you're a trade buyer or not.  If you're not, I won't twist your arm.  If you do, I think you'll enjoy both Batman and Detective post Rebirth TPB's.  And I'm not the world's biggest Bat-fan. 

Tom King is basically a genius.  His is a very cerebral Batman.  He's stated that he wants to do 100 issues.  OK fine.  Sign me up. 

Tynion on Detective has been non stop balls-to-the-walls action.  The team dynamic he set up is nothing like I've seen on a Bat book.  I think I've actually enjoyed Detective more than Batman.  Anyway, Tynion's run ends in three issues.  Not sure what the new direction will be but it appears to be an Outsiders mini reunion.

Cool!  I should do that.

I've concluded that Rebirth is a miss with me. Wally and Donna are back, but there stories haven't been that great. Now Titans is getting a soft reboot -- and though I'm impressed with the change in artists (Brandon Petersen instead of Brett Booth), I don't know how much longer I support the series.

On the other hand, Rebirth has been a hit for me.  I was out of New 52 in less than six months except for Earth 2.  Rebirth has held my attention for two years now.  Batman, Detective, Flash, Red Hood, and Titans are my mainstays.  Aquaman, Suicide Squad, and Wonder Woman are also enjoyable.  New Age of Heroes hasn't been as good as I'd hoped, but it's still early and Terrifics is well, fantastic.  Grin  Can't wait for Hawkman and the Justice League relaunch.  I'm still up in the air over Bendis on Superman.

I'll also admit that the tease of the JSA, LSH, and Marvel/Shazam Family has been frustrating.  Knowing that anybody doing anything with them is contingent on Johns and Frank finishing Doomsday Clock.  Which could be fifteen months away is really depressing. 

What is not depressing is seeing DC amass a talent pool that may be unrivaled in modern comics.  As long as the pipeline is filled with cool, interesting stuff, the wait for the JSA and the LSH may not be so bad.  Eventually, Geoff Johns will have to step away from writing.  He will no longer be lead man.  Scott Snyder and Brian Bendis sliding into that role as co-lead writers for the DCU isn't a bad thing.

Or Flash?  Or Batman?

On the face of it, I agree with you about the Bendis twist - although we'll see how it plays out.  Bringing Bucky back seemed like a horrible idea, but Brubaker pulled it off.

Based on creator owned material alone, I'll take Bru over BMB any day.  I'd rather have Bru back at DC or Marvel than Bendis.  It is what it is. 

The rest of the issue was a mixed bag, but I wouldn't say embarrassing.  The two most recent Bat-writers each gave us the end of Superman stories, which got dark.  Dark doesn't really work for Supes.  The other stories were fun retrospectives.  Seeing Jerry Ordway draw a modern story was a bit jarring - I expected his to be more retro.

I just found it dull.  Unimpressive overall.  Not what I expected this momentous issue to be.  Plus, we've still got another issue a piece from Jurgens and Tomasi.  They each get a Superman special to close it out their runs next month.  Action is a Luthor story.  And in Superman Clark and Jon return to Dinosaur Island.

If I had my way, there would be a CREATURE COMMANDOS movie featuring GI ROBOT, but that wouldn't work too well with only me and about 6 others buying tickets to see it.

Yeah, there's a lot you could do with this.  But it may be better for TV (not a CW show).

1) The originals.  Stick close to the source material.  WWII.  Use G.I. Robot liberally.  Add in Dinosaur Island and the War that Time Forgot. 

2) The second team.  Based on the Tim Truman/Scott Eaton mini series.  A little more sci-fi action in this version.

3) New 52.  This gets us Frankenstein as team leader.  And some batshit crazy plots.

I think any would be entertaining.  Put it on Cinemax.  This may be too low brow for HBO.

The property as a whole is far better suited to TV.  Long form.  Explore the world.  Tell me a story.  Bright colors, loud music, and Bugs Bunny levels of violence ain't gonna get it.
