Hopefully everything Lobdell does is retconned immediately by Johns once he arrives on the scene.
Also it seems Superman is changing during this arc. Perhaps this will explain why he's absent from the Justice League.
Maybe he is going to run Argus or head their superhuman team. Johns's protege, Sterling Gates wrote most of Vibe, is currently writing Forever Evil ARGUS and will be writing the last issue of Stormwatch. So I could see them exploring that direction. Whatever they do, both the Superman and Action Comics book will actually be good for once.
