|If I had been in charge of the New 52 Reboot

I'm a bit annoyed at the latest WTFery from DC and their nu52 mess of a reboot so it got me thinking about how if I'd been in charge.
First and foremost I'd have picked a date say three years from when I decided to reboot everything and let every current title tye up loose ends and get to a good stopping place. I'd then end every series with a flash forward epilogue showing a hopeful future. Not necessarily free of sadness and bittersweet moments but leaving long time fans with some semblence of hope that things will work otu for these characters that they loved.
Look at the end of Jones run on Green Lantern for an idea of how it could have gone but across the board.
Then instead of having a silly non sensical idea like Barry Allen screws over the universe I would simply start a new one with a total Reboot.
Totally new stuff not connected at all to the old. The old universe would be sitting aside perfectly safe in case we wanted/needed to pick things up again from the ending points before their epilogues but we had a whole new universe to play in.
You could have had things be genuinely exciting because you aren't hamstrung with bits of old continuity you decided to keep and shoe horn into a five year time line.
