I'm certain it does. Would you care to discuss the circumstances of Superman leaving Earth in the comics? I contend that it is not simply leaving, but how he leaves. What does he tell his friends and family? That new kid in the comics is not SUperman's. I don't even think he will turn out to really be Kryptonian. It's all too easy a set up. I feel the same with Batman's kid over in his title. The twist usually doesn't come in the firs issue of the story arc.
