The Dove is a Very Gentle Bird
Here's my big question about the New How many of these stories could have been told without the relaunch? With a lot of these, it feels like with some character juggling and retcons, it wouldn't be too hard. It's really blatant with the Batman and Green Lantern books, which basically ignore the reboot despite some of the questions it raises like my issues with how Emerald Night occurred. The one that stands out is Batgirl, and even then, DC wanted to heal Babs years ago. The Hawk and Dove could have stood without the relaunch -- this seems to be Batman's first meeting with the duo, and there's some talk about how Hawk and Dove haven't be operating that long -- but at the same time Dove is dating Deadman a la Brightest Day, though Brightest Day isn't mentioned , and there's some reference to characters in the original Hawk and Dove series, so this book is kind of a relic of the old DC Universe. The new Batgirl series couldn't be told as well, I don't think, if not for the relaunch. Is your point that DC could launched these titles or created a line-wide relaunch a la Marvel Now without necessarily rebooting continuity?
