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.

* ''Sword of Sorcery featuring ComicBook/{{Amethyst|Princess Of Gemworld}}'' - A fantasy book featuring an ''ComicBook/AmethystPrincessOfGemworld'' remake as the lead story.

The "New 52" is DC's third major reboot, following the ''Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}}'' event. (There were two other {{Cosmic Retcon}}s- 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.

An aged Bruce Wayne sends [[Comicbook/BatmanBeyond Terry McGinnis]] back in time to prevent the [[AIIsACrapshoot AI satellite]] Brother Eye from taking over Prime Earth. Unfortunately, a miscalculation results in Terry being sent not quite far back enough--instead of ending up two years in the current period's past, he ends up five years into its future. 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''.

** Darkseid, the first villain the Justice League faced, has been conquering the multiverse, and is responsible for the invasion [[spoiler: and subsequent destruction]] of Earth-2.
** [[spoiler: [[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths The Anti-Monitor]]]], who made the Crime Syndicate flee their world (Earth-3) when they destroyed it. [[spoiler:He's out to kill Darkseid and is in league with his daughter]].
** [[spoiler:Brainiac]], easily number #3 on this list, his true form is a giant artificial entity, capturing cities from different timelines and universes before their destruction. The Vril Dox Brainiac is just one of his pawns.
** [[spoiler:The Empty Hand]], the sinister entity that led the Gentry in their invasion of the Multiverse, as it builds a machine to [[spoiler:destroy everything]]. Probably qualifies as THE Biggest Bad.

(Of other notable former Titans, Cyborg is on the Justice League, Starfire is with Red Hood, and Beast Boy and Terra are with the Ravagers.)

After the 2015 CrisisCrossover ''ComicBook/{{Convergence}}'', DC has announced that [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/02/06/dc-comics-is-ending-the-new-52 they were ending the New 52 branding]]. Instead of a {{cosmic retcon}}, this new initiative --dubbed "DC YOU"-- was an update to the publishing slate, removing the "New 52" logo from its books, as well as adding 24 new titles to the surviving 25. [[note]]notably adding up to 49 and ''not'' 52[[/note]]

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 it, ComicBook/DCRebirth --a line-wide rebranding-- launched in June 2016, and seems to have done the trick.

In July 2015, DC announced they'd be launching a set of limited series meant to bring some older characters back into the spotlight, with many of them being written by their original creators. Ultimately, only some of them ended up being published as their own titles:
* '''''Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life & Death:''''' Her first solo title.
* '''''ComicBook/SwampThing''''': Written by Len Wein, his creator.
* '''''ComicBook/SuicideSquad Most Wanted: ComicBook/{{Deadshot}} / ComicBook/{{Katana}}''''': A six-issue {{anthology}} comic focusing on the two characters in their own solo stories. [[note]]originally announced as ''Katana: Cult of The Cobra''[[/note]]

!! ''Legends of Tomorrow''
The rest of them (minus a planned Raven series written by Marv Wolfmann) were consolidated into a monthly {{anthology}} called '''''Legends of Tomorrow''''' -- [[NamesTheSame not to be confused with]] [[Series/LegendsOfTomorrow the television series of the same name]].
* '''''ComicBook/{{Firestorm}}''''': Written by Gerry Conway, his creator.
* '''''ComicBook/MetalMen''''': Written by Len Wein.
* '''''ComicBook/{{Metamorpho}}''''': Written by Aaron Lopresti.
* '''''Sugar & Spike''''' Written by Keith Giffen; a "grown-up spin on Sheldon Mayer's popular comic-book toddlers of the 1950s and '60s."

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 it, ComicBook/DCRebirth --a line-wide rebranding-- will be launching in June 2016.
