** Blue Beetle was originally a fun book that didn't take itself too seriously - for example, the scarab was played as a HeroicComedicSociopath. In the New 52, it was initially just [[SociopathicHero a sociopath]], and Jaime couldn't rein it in as much as he used to at first.

The "New 52" is DC's second major reboot, stemming from the ''ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}}'' CosmicRetcon event that resulted in ''another'' Cosmic Retcon, turning what had become a CrapsackWorld into a CloseEnoughTimeline. (There were two other previous Post-Crisis Cosmic Retcons -- with ''ComicBook/ZeroHour'' and ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'' / ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'' -- but they were largely cosmetic.) In the wake of Franchise/TheFlash messing with the TimeyWimeyBall, DC canceled all their ongoings (even ''Action Comics'' and ''Detective Comics'') and launched 52 new titles in their place. In this new continuity, superheroes have only emerged publicly in the last five years or so, with many only beginning to show up now. Even so, many major prior storylines are still canon, at least in BroadStrokes. Certain Creator/VertigoComics and Creator/{{Wildstorm}} characters have also been incorporated into this new continuity.

In 1986, Creator/DCComics made comic book history by rebooting their entire continuity in ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''. Character histories were changed, merged in from other continuities, or even restarted from scratch. The ComicBook/PostCrisis Franchise/DCUniverse would never be the same.

* ''The Ravagers'' - Spinning out of ''Teen Titans'', this is a brand new team of N.O.W.H.E.R.E. refugees: [[ComicBook/Gen13 Caitlin Fairchild]], [[ComicBook/TeenTitans Beast Boy, Terra,]] and new characters Ridge, Thunder, and Lightning. In a minor but noticeable change, Beast Boy's odd coloring has gone from green to red as a connection to fellow beast-themed hero Animal Man.

* ''ComicBook/TrinityOfSinPandora'' - Added to the DC mythos at the end of ''Flashpoint'', Pandora is the actual mythological figure and was cursed alongside the Question and Phantom Stranger; her crime being opening the box and unwittingly releasing evils unto the world. Feeling she's been wrongfully accused for all this time for anything bad that happens, she's now fed up and not going to take it anymore.

* ''Sword of Sorcery featuring ComicBook/{{Amethyst|Princess Of Gemworld}}'' - A fantasy book featuring an ''ComicBook/AmethystPrincessOfGemworld'' remake as the lead story. The main noticeable difference from the prior incarnation is that there's no OlderAlterEgo bits this time; Amethyst stays seventeen on both Earth and Gemworld.
