** When ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational'' ended, the annual wrapping up the events has a future version of Booster Gold stating that the leftovers of the team would form the Global Guardians, and become more successful than the JLI had ever been. The characters haven't been seen together since.



* AlternateUniverse: While a longstanding tradition in DC comics; the Second Wave had the re-established Earth-2 as a focus. (Not only with the ''Earth-2'' comic itself, but the stars of ''Worlds' Finest'' are refugees from that reality.)

*** A short crossover, "ComicBook/LightsOut", is set to happen in October 2013. It will start in ''Green Lantern'', runs through ''Green Lantern Corps'', ''Green Lantern: New Guardians'', and ''Red Lanterns'' before concluding in the second ''Green Lantern'' annual. It involves the Lantern corps to come together to stop an ancient being named Relic. Shortly after this came "Uprising", a civil war amongst the Green Lanterns against the shapeshifting Durlans, followed afterwards by the Lantern-line wide "Godhead" pitting the New Guardians, Green Lantern Corps, Red Lanterns, and Yellow Lantern Corps against the ComicBook/NewGods of New Genesis. By this point, it has become clear that the Lantern books are in a near-constant state of this, especially "Green Lantern" and "Green Lantern Corps".

** Subverted with Ted Kord (Blue Beetle II), Stephanie Brown (Batgirl III), and Wally West (Kid Flash I/Flash III). After all three being absent for two years, Ted gets mentioned in ''Forever Evil'', Stephanie will return as Spoiler in the upcoming weekly ongoing ''Batman: Eternal'', and Wally will return in the third annual of ''The Flash''.

** However, much of the Justice Society's extended membership disappeared, such as Ma Hunkel, who is replaced with a female version of the robotic Red Tornado [[spoiler:who has Lois Lane's mind and personality.]]



** On the ComicBook/{{Green Lantern}} side of things, The Blues are eradicated except for Saint Walker, who then falls into such despair that his ring abandons him. These guys are the {{Hope Bringer}}s, and so now, there is no hope.

** Similar to Waller, Ma Hunkel[=/=]ComicBook/RedTornado 1 has apparently also been revised to no longer be a slightly overweight middle aged housewife/grandmother, with her crossdressing theme seemingly removed. Though, she's apparently now a composite of Ma Hunkel and her granddaughter Maxine, better known as Cyclone, who didn't share Ma's appearance.



** ''[[ComicBook/{{Batgirl2011}} Batgirl]]'' was quite dark and gloomy under Gail Simone's run, but her succeeding creative team plans on giving the series a bright, fun tone.

** Earth 3 in general, while it was originally a place the villains winning was the status quo it wasn't a place where good and justice were foreign concepts.

** According to Pandora, a multiverse-level threat necessitated the reboot. After two years this threat has yet to materialize; several Wildstorm-based books were building up to a Daemonite invasion of Earth, which may have been said mysterious threat, but all of those books are now canceled.

** "The Black Diamond Probability" is a banner given to various books following the history of Eclipso's PowerCrystal. It was brought into the world by Lucifer in ''ComicBook/DemonKnights'', used by Dr Jekyll in ''[[ComicBook/JonahHex All-Star Western]]'', captured by A.R.G.U.S. in ''Team 7'' and stolen from A.R.G.U.S. in ''ComicBook/{{Catwoman}}''. ''Catwoman'' being the only non-historic title, this takes the Heart of Darkness up to the present, where it's in the possession of [[spoiler: Alex Montez, Eclipso's second host in the previous continuity]].

While DC YOU brought some acclaim to the company with an emphasis on diversity (namely in titles like ''ComicBook/{{Midnighter}}'', ''ComicBook/OmegaMen'', and ''ComicBook/BlackCanary''), overall sales of their books hit new lows, sinking down to what they were ''before'' the New 52 launched. Because of this, DC has started teasing a new movement --ostensibly called "Rebirth"-- which is set to happen in June 2016. Not much is known about Rebirth as of yet, but some details (like Scott Snyder & Greg Capullo's departure from the main ''ComicBook/{{Batman}}'' title, with the former apparently taking up ''ComicBook/DetectiveComics'') have emerged.
