In Before Watchmen: Doctor Manhattan, Jon attempts to look back before his conception as Manhattan and creates an alternate timeline where he never becomes Doctor Manhattan and the world ends. The end of the comic sees Jon in a new timeline, the DC timeline, as I like to call it, the world of Before Watchmen, the original Watchmen, and Doomsday Clock. In this case, shouldn't we have pages for both the original Watchmen timeline before Jon looked back, and the alternate timeline he created by accident? I think yes. As for names, "Watchmen: Manhattan Timeline" for the accidental alternate timeline, and "Watchmen: Original Timeline" for the original timeline.
What's on your mind?
Can we make a disambig page for the President of the United States? I feel like that'd be for the best, since it's kinda hard to find one president. Presidents who already have their own long diambigs could have the "other versions" subheader. Who agrees?
We've been treating Rorschach by Tom King as though it's set in the universe of the Watchmen comics (ie Watchmen, Before Watchmen, Doomsday Clock). But there are a few key details that prove this incorrect, and that it is, in fact, set in canon with HBO's Watchmen universe (Watchmen, HBO's Watchmen, Peteypedia). So here's... that. Like, the details:
The first issue mentions how popular of an identity Rorschach is, even after Kovacs' death years earlier. Not only that, but there's no mention of anyone else (ie, Reggie Long) taking up the mantle. And keep in mind, that was in 1992, and this is 2020. It also points out that it's still popular "even after Oklahoma". Seventh Kavalry, anyone?
The second issue shows Alma Thompson reference the fact that the US winning the Vietnam War made Vietnam a state. I'm pretty sure that's exclusive to Damon Lindelof's work, no?
At DC FanDome, Tom King said "nothing contradicts the show" in the comic, implying that's the world it's set in.
This Tweet from Tom King, the writer of Rorschach, from just a few months ago. Honestly, I should have just led with this:
I reccommend we put the info from Tom King's Rorschach under Watchmen (TV Series) instead of just "Watchmen". It's clearly the correct canon.
My friend wants to get back into comics. He stopped when the New 52 began. What comics should he read to get an understanding of what is going on in the DC universe currently. Also if you recommend a cheap reading option(like cheaper books or online comics) that would be great! Thanks!
For the DCAU characters infoboxes, shouldn't we put the images from their future? I mean, we know it's the definite future, not a possible one, we know that what they'll look like, and it's chronologically most recent.
So I'm reading through Heroes in Crisis right now and got really interested in the characters who died there (especially Hot Spot). On The Wiki Page for hot spot I found that he is/was a Teen Titan. So can anyone recommend me some good stuff for Booster Gold/ Arsenal/ Blue Jay (and especially Hot Spot)
Have any of you got any comic recommendations? Any exciting or interesting Comics? Or ‘worth the read’ ones?

Vixen is one of my favourite DC characters. However, I've never read anything from DC, let alone her.
Do you guys have any recommendations? Are there any essential reads for this character?
You should watch Batman Brave and the Bold, if you haven’t already. (For some reason it’s not on HBO max)
Hi, looking for tie-in comics between other media like DC Extended Universe, anyone?

I finished reading the Demon by Jack Kirby. So I wanted more comics featuring Etrigan.
I was recently recommended Green Lantern by Geoff Johns but I'm not sure if Kyle is in it.
But he was always my favorite Lantern and one of my favorite DC characters, maybe because he is similar to another character that I can't think of right now :/
