    For DC yes, for Marvel it is mostly the cinematic versions, and I suspect it would be for DC too if the movies had been better received. The current DC style guide though is based on the looks circa 2005, though more and more the trunkless Batman look from circa 2012 is coming into it. Justice League images include Cyborg now for licensing, etc. They are moving away from the look, and more and more the look for products aimed at kids are taking on the style of the animated series not the comics.

    Toys and stuff aimed at the collector's market still gravitate a bit towards Bronze Age, but mass market products are moving past that towards the newer looks and will continue to do so. I don't remember stuff when we were kids hearkening to the Golden Age looks, and there have been more years between the Bronze Age and now than there were between the Golden Age and when I was a kid in the 70s, so I don't see the style guide remaining 30-40 years out of date if they want to appeal to a younger demographic to become future customers to replace those of us aging out and making our final exits.

    I have picked up all 4 of the issues and yes the Teen Titans were the first to go, it might not be flippers but actual readers who picked them up.

    My local Walmart never did get these in and that surprised me because I have seen DC Rebirth 3-packs there in the fairly recent past.

    To be truthful the pt 1 of the original stories were just ok, nothing to get excited about and that is a shame for what these writers keep hyping on. I hope they pick up in pt 2.

    Found a Teen Titans #1 today down Dayton way, so now have all for of the first issues. I read and enjoyed the three I had. Nice little package that should appeal to casual readers and introduce them to a number of DC characters and stories, and hopefully create enough interest they seek out more. The ads DC placed are strategically located and point readers to where they can get the rest of the stories (i.e. which trades to seek out) if they don;t want to wait for future issues of the 100 page giants, so hopefully these will bear some fruit in growing future readership and sales.
