DC's New 52 Facebook Poll Backfires Just A Bit

DC's New 52 Facebook Poll Backfires Just A BitIt started as a simple poll on the DC Comics Facebook page. "With Zero Month drawing to a close we're wondering: How do you want to learn more about the history of the characters in DC Comics-The New 52?"

The problem was, as well as the expected choices, they left the poll open. So people could add their own choices. The top three have the majority of votes…

UPDATE: Half an hour after posting the piece, after a day of delaying it because MorrisonCon kept getting in the way, DC Comics withdrew the poll from their Facebook page. It can still be accessed here though.
