This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
The DCU
The "New 52" continuity is actually a trap that may doom the DCU to facing another multiversal crisis.
  • Look at the facts:
    • For one, the merging of mainstream DC, Wildstorm and Vertigo was at the behest of a person named Pandora, as in a Box. That's the first clue that nothing good is going to come of this in-universe.
    • In addition, Pandora is seemingly a shade of Red Skies Red.
    • For another, DC has never been this "pre-crisis" since the Crisis itself: the JLA characters and JSA characters are once again (generally) in separate universes, the Kents are dead and Clark is single etc.
    • And, most importantly, if DC ever decides to go back to a Pre-Flashpoint style universe again, you KNOW they'd have a big miniseries to do it.
    • The may just use hypertime to retcon the whole New 52 continuity out of existence to back the universe back to the pre-flashpoint universe.
    • The New52 already had a rocky foundation: it was triggered with Barry Allen, player of the first Crisis screwing up the timelines. The way he repaired it was rather paradoxic when you think about it. Add the fact that history in the DCU keeps getting retconned, and I can imagine that the DC Universe is going to suffer a Time Crash Crisis Crossover as it breaks under the strain of the Continuity Snarl.

The "New 52" continuity and the Post-Crisis continuity are coexisting.
  • "Vibrating at different frequncies" maybe. The Batfamily and Green Lantern cast are experiencing and have knowledge of both timelines (which is why they overlap).
    • Supporting this theory is the fact that Batman has his father's letter (from Flashpoint) on display in the Batcave.
