SDCC: Terra Mini not "Our" Terra?

from comicbloc:

"Friday afternoon saw the spotlight fall on Amanda Conner. Joining Amanda was her husband Jimmy Palmiotti (Jonah Hex, Heroes for Hire) and a mutual friend of theirs, Snakes on a Plane writer John Heffernan. The crowd was small, which gave it a more comfortable and intimate vibe.

Amanda announced that her newest project would be a Terra mini-series from DC Comics. Joining her on the mini will be Jimmy and his writing partner, ComicBloc’s own Justin Gray. Jimmy talked about how this story will spin out of.something that happens toward the end of 52. Justin and Jimmy plan to explain all the Terras that are in the DCU before introducing the new one who has been redesigned by Amanda. Jimmy also gave some insight into how the mini came to be. He and Justin had created a new character, and when they showed it to Dan Didio, he thought it would be cool if it tied into this and this and this … it eventually morphed into the upcoming Terra mini-series."

A NEW Terra?? What was wrong with the new-old one, Terra II? This has me worried... Dan Didio, what have you done now?

    DiDio is little more than a moonbat acting out of political correctness. It's that very same PC lunacy that's been affecting the work of people like him too these days. I suppose maybe there could be some new female character to use powers like those of Tara Markov, but not the way things are going under DiDio.

    I'd like to know why comic companies refuse to listen to their readers. For almost 2 decades we've been asking for a resolution to the two Terras origins, but, instead of granting our wishes, Dan DiDio instead chooses to make a third one. What's the deal here? This is 'Terra' here, not 'Jean Grey'! I can only see bad things coming from this, including confusion, anger, and ever-mounting frustration. Please, Dan, please please please just give the fans what they ask for and lead us like Gandalf through the two Terras! Who knows? You might even increase your book's monthly sales.

    You know....the idea of a third Terra in and of itself aint bad. It's what may happen to Terra II to facilitate it that scares me.

    We have multiple Green Lanterns right now. There are two active Green Arrows, unless something happened to Connor Hawke that I'm not aware of. There have been mutiple Robins and Flashes, and even Batman had two temporary replacments once upon a time.

    Why oh why can't we have Tara Markov II *and* New Girl? Must it be one or the other?

    Given Didio's track record, I am not optimistic.

    I'm prepared for the worst but hoping for the best. Unfortunately, Didio doesn't seem to understand why fans love those Titans characters. Someone should school him---

    Plus, y'know, a LOT of young readers know Terra through the cartoon. Take advantage of that, DC!
