Speaking of alternate realities...

After just complaining a bit about Jon Favreau's apparent belief that Marvel solves all its problems by alternate realitying stuff away, I came across the early solicitation for Final Crisis Secret Files: "Witness how Darkseid's death shattered the Multiverse, creating continuity ripples throughout the DC Universe!"

For those that don't know, DC editorial has had some flack lately for continuity issues, like Countdown only sort of staying in touch with the DCU, and most famously for the Fall of the New Gods storyline (in FotNG, Orion deals with Darkseid, the Infinite Man, the death of his friends and family, all while Superman witnesses. In Final Crisis, Orion is back to life, dying from a bullet traveling backward through time or some similar concept and some story about Darkseid being displaced through time to before Seven Soldiers. With the only-a-few-years-old Infinite Crisis having used Superboy's punch through reality to excuse Jason Todd's return to life and a few other odds and ends, is DC really that editorially mixed up that they need to do a chronology fix already?

And on a separate note: Another Teen Titans recruitment drive? Didn't they just have one leading into Titans? And wasn't the post-One Year later story one big recruitment drive with Miss Martian and Kid Devil?
