2011 revamp and reboot of the entire DC Comics Universe

The New 52 refers to the entire DC Comics Universe and publishing line as it was rebooted and revamped in late 2011.

Following the events of the Flashpoint company-wide storyline, all of the comics restarted numbering from #1.

Most characters remain relatively intact, though with minor adjustments post-Flashpoint.

Some of which include:

  • Clark Kent/Superman and Lois Lane are no longer married
  • Barbara Gordon is no longer in a wheelchair and is once again Batgirl

Others in the universe, such as Batman and Green Lantern, appear to be mostly unchanged.
