The Shrew Anticipates Infinite Crises

As my boss is wont to say when something else goes FUBAR at House of Employ: Just call it Job Security. The Shrew looks to be safely engaged in the fine art of griping about funnybooks for the forseeable future after Dan DiDio's interview at Newsarama regarding Infinite Crisis. Why?

The entire DCU will restart post-Infinite Crisis with the same three words: One Year Later.
“There will be big scale changes,” Didio said. “New characters, perhaps new series, new alliances, friendships, relationships, changing locations, and we might not even have some of the same people under the masks one year later.”
Connor Hawke as Batman? Superman based out of Chicago? Jon Michael Carter and Bruce Wayne as the new Hard Traveling Heroes? Barry Allen replacing Wally West? The possibilities are endless because, really, the more ridiculous the better. Go on, come up with your own.

The Shrew will be in Philadelphia tomorrow (which is why there won't be any reviewing done until after the weekend) and looks forward to seeing some of the hubbub up close.

I was thinking something like Kamandi as the Last Son of Krypton.

I think the new Superman will be Peter Parker. Booster Gold will be Martha Stewart. Lex Luthor will be Doctor. Phil.

Lex Luthor will gain a lot of weight and start calling himself the kingpin. The Creeper will become the new leader of the Justice League. The new Black Lighting will be a Klu Klux Kan member.

Nah. I saw Zatanna goes cuckoo, marries Red Tornado, has kids, gets Green Arrow killed by raging Thanagarians, and is finally subdued by Etrigan.

Then, after Bolt and Electrocutioner spring Pterodactyl Man from prison, Batman and Superman form a new JLA with Deathstroke there, because Deathstroke needs to be in every book.
