    So an Anniversary special to the Death of Superman... plus introducing a new Doomsday character?! This could either be a good thing or something very average that cheapen Doomsday

    Death of Superman wasn’t really all that great the first time around. The best things about that story were (1) the fact that it regenerated interest in comics in general; and (2) the excellent and criminally underrated animated adaptation whose screenplay was written by Peter Tomasi.

    I am infinitely more excited about Mark Waid’s Birthright follow-up.

    How did Lex Luthor get elected president? Other than the writers disliking Bush and wanting Luthor to be compared to or stand in for him?

    We live in a world where Donald Trump got elected

    I no longer doubt that there are enough absolute ****ing morons in this country who'd vote for anyone no matter how utterly blatantly evil they are

    If a writer wanted to write a story where people voted for Captain Nazi the only thing that would break my suspension of disbelief is "He wasn't born in the USA so he's not legally eligible"

    So after all that…. Superman’s secret identity is being recon back into existence


    can’t say I’m surprised. I knew it was only a matter of time before this would happen. The question is how are they going to justify this?

    Whatever this was it doesn't exist anymore...

    EDIT: It popped back up now. I guess Twitter is acting funny.

    Action Comics #1050 will see the return of Clark Kent back in the world at large and unrecognizable once more as Superman. Somehow DC comics is going to put the genie back in the bottle regarding Superman secret identity.

    Yeah, most of Bendis stuff lead to nothing at all.
    I would miss jay, but i would give that up to have kid Jon again.

    I Wonder what the idea Was to reveal clarks identity or if it really was just this one month shocker and Nobody really had any Plan to Do something with it.
    In the end either way a Good decision imo.
    I just like secret identities.

    Such great news and I agree about wanting a 10 year old Jon back. Erasing everything Bendis did would be a dream come true!
