There was even a bleedingcool article about it:

And yes, the timeline that it links to does help clear things up by keeping track of things but it also mentions some errors, which would contradict your claim about how there is no confusion in the New 52. As would the fact that there are over 52 titles to keep track of, on top of that there are multiple time periods being depicted. Which would also be confusing to keep track of. Then there's the thigns that I mentioned earlier:
But you said:But Flamebird referred to being on the Teen Titans and fighting Deathstroke in Batwoman, but yet the old Titans never existed. Where does Batman Inc fit into everything? How long has Batman been operating? Barbara Gordon meeting Black Canary. The Flash and Green Lantern said they teamed up to fight talking gorillas in JL, but Flash doesn't meet Grodd and the gorillas until his current series. Etc.
I think it's totally understandable to have some things that contradict each other when relaunching an entire fictional universe being engineered by multiple creators. I don't fault them for that. I do partly fault them on not keeping things in tact when they said they would be and for intentionally changing things for the sake of change which ends up causing confusing contradictions. But again, this is comics and that's how things go.

Oh, hells yeah ditto.Two, they're far more diverse in that they have more than three teams all sharing the same members and actually have solo characters.
Agree with the first part with the second part somewhat debatable - others could make the same claim about DC and Geoff Johns et al.Three, their comics aren't a giant crossover virtually every single month dictated by a handful of creators.
Yup. Especially the Bendis/Fraction part of that equation.Four, I don't like the creators Marvel is using to dictate those stories.
Easily the biggest problem at Marvel for me right now. If not for that, I'd easily be getting double the Marvel books I currently am.Five, I don't like the double-shipping and price-gouging policies.
I... actually didn't mind Ultimatum too much...Six, and most important, Ultimatum.
