Mebbe when ol Supes is AOK, he'll lay some Superamnesium back on Lois
and everyhting will be status quo once again.

He would if it was 66 and the story was 8 pages. :wink:

Did you miss this part:

"But what we do with it, changes the status quo back in a different kind of way."

I am thinking she will forget everything at the end of issue 12 Smiley

I sometimes think Kent would wonder why comics went from 12 cents to 15 cents an issue, even with a "half-mask"... Cool  Cheesy

Minor nit: While that Quitely cover looks cool, since Superman is sitting on a cloud, exactly what is his cape tucked under?  It looks like he's sitting on his cape like on a hill but that cloud isn't solid.

I just belatedly realized something.  While it's not exactly the same, killing Superman through the sun has been done before.  The final issue of DC One Million had Solaris trying to use kryptonite to poison the sun itself to kill Superman-Prime.

While this isn't exactly the same, Morrison seems to be borrowing from himself and tweaking it in All-Star Superman #1.  But instead of using the classic kryptonite weakness to poison the power source, the power source itself overloads this version of Superman.

While Superman has been overloaded in various incarnations before, this has never been a fatal condition before.  The danger in the past has always been to everyone else not Superman.  Interestingly, this overloaded/overpowerful Superman retains complete control over his increased powers and is even manifesting new super-powers as a result of his condition.  He tended to lose control in these situations when this was tried in other stories and incarnations.
