Potential Spoilers

Did anyone get a chance to read Action Comics 850? New Earth Superman's continuity gradually solidifies with every current monthly issue. In AC 850, Supergirl and the Legion peer into the past and view lateral timelines. New Earth's Legion know of the multiverse as we are treated to different era renditions and possibly different Supermans from other earths. First Superman viewed is E-2/GA Superman during his first appearance in 1938. After a few multiversal calibrations, more Superman's are presented, as follows: 1950's? Superman squaring off with Mister Mxyzptlk (with raining popovers!), 1960's Superman saving Lois from Titano (E-1 anyone Grin), John Byrne's Man of Steel, mullet post-death Superman, and Birthright?! Superman. Makes you wonder if they are all from distinct Earths. The 52 list is getting shorter.

Finally, New Earth Superman's continuity begins with a pregnant Lara-El in labour as Jor-El prepares for Krypton's Doom. From this point on, the writers decide to give readers glimpses of Superman's new continuity in short segments. Superbaby's first word is followed by young Smallville Clark Kent's powers and sheer kindness/goodness. We learn Jr-High Clark is indeed friends with Lana Lang as well as Lex Luthor. Moving forward, Superman saves a downed aircraft similar to Man of Steel? Other tidbits include his Legion Flight Ring (New Earth Legion's surprised), after high school Clark Kent traveled the world Birthright?, Superman was a founding member of the Justice League of America (Justice League Together!), Lois and Clark's inability to have kids,  a Superman Returns shot, and recent Superman/Batman Supergirl continuity. Future storylines are previewed: Brainiacs Attack, Supergirl reunited with her parents, and what appears to be New Krypton or Kandor? Check it out.

Also if you get a chance, read the Lightning Saga running in Justice League and Society of America issues. New Earth Superman was definitely a member of the SA/BA Legion. Mmmm, I wonder....

Kara's reaction to the super-mullet was great. "That hair...no!"  Grin

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.

Yeah, and best part of all? Now there's no limits to the kinds of Superman stories you can write. EVERY incarnation of Superman is now fair game.
