So Oracle isn't Oracle anymore? I saw the New52 thing this morning. I kind of really like superman's new design...
And yes, second Robin was brought back to life as the Red Hood. I don't really follow comics, but I watch the heck out of the cartoons and then fact check them.
I'm not crazy about the depowering stuff in Marvel, either.
The "Marvel Adventures" titles are cool though, and worth reading. Granted, they're for younger readers, but the more light-hearted style is the kind of fun that comic books used to be. Not sure if Marvel is still publishing them, though.

New 52 made a horrible mess of things though. It's a reboot that's not a reboot while rebooting several characters and unrebooting several others and trying to make it all fit.
"In the new, revised continuity, the events of The Killing Joke took place three years before the current storyline, and while it is established she was paraplegic during that time, Barbara Gordon is written as having regained her mobility after undergoing experimental surgery at a South African clinic. Although she resumes her work as Batgirl one year after her recovery, she continues to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, causing her to hesitate in battle when exposed to gunfire that could result in receiving new spinal damage. The character also exhibits survivor guilt due to the fact she has made a full recovery from her paralysis while others have not."
"The status of Stephanie Brown following the events of Flashpoint remain unknown."
