The multiverse waves are way too disjointed. I buy figures -- based on the characters and not a theme, but this picking and choosing between nu 52, TV, movies, Elseworlds and whatever else is at play makes for a very uncohesive wave, and I think, hurts shelf presence.

Longer answer...

The current Rookie wave is filled with Batman characters.  Bats himself, Batwing, and Rookie all in current looks and fit the "Team Detective" theme.  Rookie is Luke Fox' new lab assistant.  Reaper is a classic villain/Gotham vigilante.  Duke is a little late in his Robins costume.  And TV Atom which will peg warm. 

Next wave up is Clayface.  More Team Detective with Clayface and Batwoman.  Batman villain with Two Face.  Superman and Jessica Cruz looks like Justice League team building.  Odd man out is TV Martian Manhunter. 

The Luthor wave contains five Rebirth figures.  Wonder Woman, Vixen, Baz, Ray, and Lex.  Gotham by Gaslight Batman is Multiverse/Elseworld, and a nice bone comes our way in the form of an 80's Byrne style Bizarro.  No TV figures at all.   

These waves are starting to congeal a bit more.
