Rebirth

Having breathed new life into the DC Universe, Rebirth has been an exciting event t follow. Starting with the “death” of Superman-52, Geoff Johns’ one issue Rebirth started a new era for DC Comics, moving the company forward with a freshness and outlook long missing.

It had been some while since I’d picked up any comic titles as they were all getting so dark, serious, and soap-opera like. However, this comic event has renewed my interest in the titles. It started with the return of Kid Flash – the original Wally West’s return from limbo, and his meeting with Barry Allen, and their realization that some diabolical force was manipulating their lives.

Adding to things, Superman 52 died, and was quickly replaced by a new, or rather, old, Superman. This Superman is married to Lois Lane and they have a son, thus creating new possibilities for stories with the sons of Batman and Superman.

Wally West has joined the original Titans, who now remember him, in trying to find out who is behind all their troubles. Disrupting their plans was the return of the villain Abra Kadabra, with a vendetta against Wally West.

Rumors say that behind it all are another group from the DC World, the Watchmen. It is going to be interesting to see how this finally unfolds in what may actually be an original and entertaining idea.
