The 3DNado Returns: DC Announces Five Years Later Event Month
`DC announced that their latest gimmick month today at ComicPRO, a “Five Years Later” skip month that will tie into their Future’s End weekly series. All the comics coming out in September will show characters existing in “the potential future” shown in Future’s End, which may or may not come to pass. The event month will spin off yet another major event (probably similar to the still ongoing Forever Evil) that will start in October. Of course, this also marks the return of the infamous 3D covers, which first appeared on last year’s “Villains Month” covers. These 3D covers marked a nightmare for retailers, with orders allocated at random due to shortages in the lenticular material needed to produce the covers, and final order cut off dates changed and ultimately dropped…

DC Celebrates Black History Month by Whitewashing Black Characters
`Yesterday evening, Sue from DC Women Kicking Ass pointed out that this week’s comics included the debut of New 52 versions of two Green Arrow characters.  In Earth 2 #20, Major Sato calls Red Arrow Connor Hawke. Connor was originally the son of Oliver Queen, and took over his father’s role as Green Arrow after Queen was killed in a terrorist attack.  Red Arrow had previously been referred to in Earth 2 as Roy McQueen, so whether Connor is just an alias or his true name remains to be seen…

DC Still Insists Wonder Woman Amazon Origin Story Is Too ComplIcated, Makes Her From Krypton Instead

DC has been adamant about not understanding Wonder Woman’s Greek myth origins. At last they’ve figured out a way to fix her story for the upcoming Superman/Batman movie:

"The “Amazons” of this cinematic DCU will be descendants of those “ancient Kryptonians” who attempted to set up Kryptonian outposts throughout spacedom thousands and thousands of years ago. Furthermore, I say that Wonder Woman will be powered-down, if you will, relative to Superman because these Amazons have evolved and adapted to living on Earth for hundreds of centuries."

We Covered this as a normal rumor write-up yesterday 

http://www.theouthousers.com/index.php/news/125720-man-of-steel-2-to-screw-up-beloved-comic-backstories-even-more.html

But we try to stick to actual screw ups, not rumors that started b/c a guy on a site was just “thinking about how they might handle amazons” and none of this info actually came from WB/DC.
