This week's DC Nation reveals the big secret of 52....

From Newsarama.

Here is the relevant part of the DC Nation Column this week:

"This column often hints at many essential facts, but some secrets are ever important to conceal in our retention of the element of surprise. Therefore, above all objections, our one foremost thought is finally recognized and imaginatively coming to fruition. Right here this stands before you, the heart thumping meaning to what waits at our awe-inspired ending is about to see light. So that there is hardly any confusion, a code was transcribed, one easily translated as a harbinger of facts essential to those multitudes who have unilaterally followed the lives of our tenacious heroes from introduction to their various adventures and efforts. We have rallied around these said heroes, whose existence is the stuff of legend. This column's prime information is to let anyone who loves 52 have essential information to x-ecute a very informed opinion to select simply all the clues for summation.

So there you have it, the secret of 52. All you need to know about the stunning conclusion to our groundbreaking series is stated clearly in the paragraph above. Of course it doesn't touch upon the heartwrenching conclusion to Ralph Dibny's journey, the ramifications of World War Three or the ultimate fate of the space team, but it does give you an essential key to the direction of the DC Universe for the foreseeable future and where many future stories lie."

It's a cypher. One of the users at Newsarama figured it out:

Take the first letter of every third word, he says.  "THE SECRET OF FIFTY-TWO IS THAT THE MULTIVERSE STILL EXISTS. Which means...Earth-4, here we come!

Thats the secre?

I figured that out the other night!  I also figured out that the reason that every one was going crazy was because some how they had been cut off from the rest of the multiverse and it was driving everyone mad. Mad I Say!

Plus it's the only way to explain the Captain Atom, Majestic, etc. storylines that have been cropping up.

I guessed that too when DC made the changes to Infinite Crisis when it was collected.  The alterations made it painfully obvious that at least earth 2 was still out there.

Re: This week's DC Nation reveals the big secret of 52....

Anyone read JSA #2? Because I'm not a DC-buff, I'm not entirely sure but...

is Starman supposed to be Ralph Dibny? Pish, and you guys thought Civil War was contrived...

Aha. I finally found out what that giant paragraph meant. I guess being lazy and staying up surfing random mysterious messageboards does pay off.
