Of course, continuing that trend Hal, Barry, and Barbara were not the original people to use their respective superhero identities, they were just the ones who were when much of the current staff got into comics. However, people that got into comics in the last twenty years were likely to have grown up with Kyle, Wally, and Cassandra/Steph and it'll be curious to see what happens when the current DC staff is replaced by new blood who may have different views on the "real" versions of characters (both as in who they are, such as Superman, and who should be under the mask, such as Green Lantern/Flash/Batgirl). Though it's a bit more muddied now since in those three cases the 70s versions are once again the versions that people who are just now getting into comics will be growing up with, so it may end up being rather cyclical.

I wonder if WB actually cares about DC. Although, I doubt that interference by WB execs would help.

So I don't read as many DC comics but it does seem like the company is missing, for lack of better words "AAA" talent. I can think of tons at marvel off the top of my head, but with DC I get Snyder and Johns and then no one else.

Pak is a fantastic writer, his Hulk run is beloved for a reason, but he doesn't get really big high profile gigs. He's like a really talented actor that always gets supportingroles. Superman/Batman started out strong but was hamstrung by terrible Brett Booth art and Action Comics is great but not a tentpole of the DCU and is mostly doing its own thing.

Newsarama interview with Lobdell says that in April and May we'll be getting a crossover between Superman/Wonder Woman, Superman and Action Comics. Then in June, Johns will be taking over Superman with issue #32.
