yeah, i picked up on the metron symbol freeing people. i need to learn more about metron to fully understand his role in all this, though. i hear there's stuff about him in morrisons seven soldier's? im gonna try to pick those up. i may go back and read the superman beyond books again too, because i know i didnt pick it all up. particularly the stuff going on during the mandrakk/superman fight and all that stuff about "stories". but damn, i couldnt fall asleep last night, the story was just stuck in my head and i couldnt get away from it. quite fantastic....other than being tired as s#!t for work this morning, ha ha.
