And how about that bat-family portrait in Batman? See how much shorter and slimmer Dick Grayson is? How could he possibly have passed for Batman for the last year-plus?
What about Perry White in Superman? Heck, what about Morgan Edge, who's been not only youthified, but apparently Samuel-L-Jacksonified?
On the other hand, I'm not sure who they thought would see it as necessarily an improvement, either.
Let's just call it what it is. The DCU hasn't absorbed the Wildstorm universe: It's the other way around.
