E-2 Superman will return to New Earth because that's where he was buried.

Remember Kal-L, Lois Lane, and Power Girl are missing on E-2.

I know it's a weekly book and all, but that artwork is really crappy.

...and they're presumably "missing" since two of 'em are dead and buried on New Earth? Unless there's *two* "Earth-2 Supermen/Power Girls/Loises"...the familiar pre-Crisis one and some current new-multiverse one; if not, don't see why upon returning to the land of the living Kal-L wouldn't head for "home" vs. staying in a reality that already has a Superman...

But now earth-2 is back,so why E-2 Superman and Power girl do not return to home? And in my opinion have two Superman on New Earth is not a good thing.

Wild costumes.  Was any sort of reason given for the changes?  Or have the costumes just "always been that way"?  The strangest to my eyes is how Alan Scott's violet has become blue.  It may just be a coloring error, but it looks incredibly different and less mystic.  The black Flash outfit is pretty cool, though.

My understanding is that this is NOT the "Earth-2" of old, ie: the Pre-Crisis version.  This is an Earth-2 where a JSA has been in operation since the 40s and there is no JLA, yes, but it's not the one we knew.  Similarly, there are worlds like the old Earth-C (Charlton), Earth-S (Fawcett) and Earth-X (Swastika), but they are new creations that DC will eventually get around to showcasing...and it won't be a case of "going home again."

The current Multiverse is newly created and unexplored.  It's not the old Multiverse revived. At least that's my take on it.

So that GL in blue and Flash in black are not only not "old school" Alan and Jay, they may not even be guys named Alan and Jay.  Time will tell.  (And I'm counting on you guys to read the books and fill me in  Cheesy).

Charlton's Earth pre-Crisis was "Earth-4"; Earth-C, of course, was the home of Capt. Carrot and the Zoo Crew (along with apparently various old DC "funny animal" comics). ;-)

Crispy Snax, I don't want him to be a Silver Surfer rip-off because as you quite rightly said, he should remain his own character. Maybe I didn't word myself particularly well, or maybe I didn't think about what I was saying. I was just trying to suggest a way for us to keep seeing Earth 2 Superman without seeing him subjected to countless resurrections.
