S"Smallville" has nothing to do with The New 52. It is a continuation of the series canon. I understand wanting to promote your characters within your universe, but this is an entirely different reality that has nothing to do whatsoever with the 52'Verse. I would understand Didio's stance if this book took place within the New 52 Verse but it doesn't.
In principle I agree with you, Smallville
to be it's own thing, based
on the DC Comics characters but not necessarily
beholden to their canon.
we should have known something was up from the very beginning. After all Superman's uniform just so happened to be Henry Cavill's uniform rather than Brandon Routh's.
And Henry Cavill's uniform is the uniform of the New 52
Bullshit corporate synergy is what it is! I understand why
they do it but still... I fucking hate it
