Question: Has DC ever tried to explain or tell us what the First World and Second World before the Third and Fourth are, or is it purely a Cryptic Background Reference?
At the very least the Third World is supposed to be based off the Norse Gods, specifically from Kirby's Thor run at Marvel. I think they were supposed to be the actual Marvel Asgardians back when Kirby was still working there before he took it to DC. Asgard was going to have Raganarok and get blown the hell up and the Fourth World would take its' place. Or at least that's what I've heard.
Dr mcrape lord seems to be back on the table... or there are Two Arthur Lights since kimi married one of them
Of course Heroes in Crisis would bring that back. Of course it would.
Now, now, we don't actually know what Kimiyo is talking about in that panel. For all we know, she's referring to that time Arthur posted a video of himself doing the Harlem Shake.
Can't we ask writers for an essay on controversial topics before they are allowed to write a story about them?
I mean, they don't mention who or what he did, so she might just be referring to the fact that Dr. Light is a villain (which he is now, I believe, after coming back to life — long story, he exploded) and not anything else.
But that does bring up something weird with HIC — it seemingly thinks everything is still in continuity, even acknowledging things that shouldn't be.
See, this is why I think Tom King is best when he operates in that Mister Miracle style story — where the nebulous continuity works to its advantage, where it's not supposed to be clear and the audience isn't questioning "Huh?"
But then again, I don't think HIC really had any clear editorial oversight or else they would have fixed the continuity issues.
Although the best part of the book was probably Red Tornado asking himself if he should build his own family and thinking that he shouldn't have any problems with that.
That's a good idea. "Before you right this story about rape, I want a twenty-page essay about the impact of sexual assault on women and men and the trauma they go through afterwards."

Tornado building himself a family has been a disastrous idea for a while.
Anyone remember the Tornado Tyrant?
HIC pretty much seems to treat everything as in continuity
which makes this panel with Dove really head scratching
Dawn's just being pissy
when she's got about mountain of other things to be traumatized by
Not limited too
Raped while conscious of it
in waking Coma while Pregnant
Said child was soulless and turned into someone elses Kid
Trying to Reconnect to Little Sister
Failing to Protect little sister and thus failing her parents
and the Guy who killed said little sister is her rapist and partner even if it sorta kinda wasn't his fault
Then Hank's problem is he's stuck in a predestination paradox to become Extant and ruin the one girl who has shown him unconditional love entire life
though then again all they can do is have Kyle speak spanish

This is part of why I read more Marvel than DC because at least Marvel doesn't have a reboot every five minutes.
It's never mentioned in Green Lantern, but Amon Sur and Soranik Natu are technically cousins, and Sinestro is Amon's uncle by marriage/Abin Sur is Soranik's biological uncle. Makes me wonder how Sinestro must feel about Amon being his best friend's son and having any remote relationship to him
Wally West's new comic is here: Flash Forward, written by Scott Lobdell, with art by Brett Booth.
Also, the name of the comic is stupid.

Leviathan is the next big DC villain and his true identity will shake the DC verse to its core... as long as they don't screw the pooch
cause Henry Hall is sick of being the go to Villain stunt double.
Well, at least we know that it can't be Wally West.
-Hawk pulls off his cowl to reveal... Wally West-
Wally west is Monarch
Wally West is the man that killed the Waynes
Wally West destroyed Krypton
Wally West is the Anti-Monitor
Wally West took the Cartoons off Cartoon Network

Justice Society breaks the chains of Doomsday Clock and enter mainstream DC continuity again
Wally West got Swamp Thing cancelled.
It's going to be Roy that's why green arrow is involved in this. He came back evil and decided to take out all the fictional intelligence agencies
Gotham City Monsters by Steve Orlando and Amancay Nahuelpan. Starring Frankenstein, Killer Croc, Lady Clayface, Orca, and I Vampire.
I'm not sure why they didn't call it Creature Commandos, but I'm in.
That actually seems like a pretty cool series.
...why is Lobdell still there? They were fine giving Berganza and Esquivel the boot but not him? Goddamn hypocrites.
He's good friends with Bob Harras, IIRC. Doesn't make it right, of course.
It probably helps that Lobdell apologized and there hasn't been any other reports of him sexually harassing people, but the first time should have been enough to get him fired.
