"I'm sure a lot of people are going to ask this, but here goes: Lightray died just last week in Countdown (complete with Superman screaming in big red letters), but is alive and well in the new issue of Superman, is this because of all the delays, or did you just want to use Lightray, and we're supposed to assume this story took place before Countdown 48? Or most sinister of all, is it just a mistake?

Kurt: It's noted on the splash page that the story takes place before Countdown 48, actually. And yeah, it was scheduled to come out earlier, but, well, we're almost out of the schedule problems of last year, but not completely. Soon, though!"


I hope DC fixes scheduling problems. Countdown and monthly title continuity is all over the place.

Mike: I really enjoy seeing Clark talk through his problems with Lana & Lois in this issue. I do wish Clark was sometimes shown hanging out with guy friends (non-superhero). It seems his pal Jimmy is his main male friend but Jimmy often is shown as too immature to be really there for Clark. Any thoughts about this?

Kurt: I have to admit, I haven't really thought about it. Maybe we'll have to do something about that...

One of the many reasons that I liked Vartox so much was because of the close friendship that he and Superman shared.  They were equals and they talked about real things.  Vartox was the only person that Superman was able to have no secrets from - he could just relax, open up, and be himself.  I think one of the reasons that Superman is now much less uptight and more laid-back about things than he was in the 80s is because of his friendship with Vartox.

Either that or because the 80s never happened.  I forget.

Depends which Earth the 80s happened on, I suppose.

And there's only 52 of them -- for now.

As indicated in Sinestro Corps Special (which I HIGHLY recommend.....there's a lot going on, including a major "break-through", so to speak) , there are 52 parallel earths in THIS universe, as well as 52 parallel UNIVERSES.

so what would that be, 52 x 52 x 52 = 140,608 earths?   Are my calculations correct?

I am suck at Math, but let's see here:

each universe has 52 earths and there are 52 universes so shouldn't that be 52 x 52?
2,704 Earths in all?

Yeah, 2704, I can't say why I thought it should be multiplied again.

52 universes, each with 52 earths
