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.

As with Zero Month and Villains' Month, the September 2014 issues of various books tie in to the event with hypothetical looks into how Prime Earth might be five years from now.

** The epic scale and popularity of Comicbook/GrantMorrisonsBatman and Creator/GeoffJohns's Franchise/GreenLantern allowed their to histories carry over into the new status quo, but there are issues trying to cram everything into the new five-year timeline. Batman's timeline in particular is especially messy; despite the HandWave of Batman entering the game an extra year prior to the debut of the Justice League, there are still several issues working things out. For example, Batman managed to go through all four male Robins in those six years, but Damian is still eleven years old as he was in the old continuity ({{Hand Wave}}d by adding previously absent [[PlotRelevantAgeUp use of Apokolips technology]], whereas the greater time scale of the original continuity logically allowed Damian to organically age eleven years). Bruce's "death" and Dick Grayson temporarily becoming Batman have also been carried over, but details were left vague until ''Batman and Robin'' #33 simultaneously claimed that Darkseid hasn't attacked Prime Earth since the first arc of ''Justice League'' and that Batman was somehow still "killed" by the Omega Sanction from ''Comicbook/FinalCrisis''.
