Tucker from Enterprise still reads Superman comics which are probably set in a contemporary era.
Very good point.

That being so, Batman & Robin almost definitely DC comix in ENT's time as well.

Shoots my hunch about Spock being Robin's descendant into the poop-scooper huh

So much for Burt Ward & Leonard Nimoy co-starring in a ST/BATMAN time travel crossover story re: Spock meeting direct ancestor Robin

Hey, forget DC folks on “Smallville”.

How'bout 1 or more of these dudes guest-starring:
Leonard Nimoy, Burt Ward, Julie Newmar, Gene Hackman, Katherine Ross, among others.

If not in a guest-role, then playing themselves.

Maybe in the Star Trek universe those Superman comic books are based on the real person...

If memory serves, it wasn't just a generic space background--the closest equivalent I can think of is sort of a "warp speed" background.
It could just be Superman flying very fast. Which is one of his standard abilities.
It has been a long time since I saw the episode but if i remember right it looked like he was going faster and faster then their was a burst of light. I always took that as the end of his life. I thought he was trying to approach the speed of light itself maybe trying to travel back in time or something.

Being immortal would suck because everyone you know or have loved would die and you would be left alone.

Since he didn't actually see Superman, it could also be an allegory to the impact his life had on the universe. He may die, but his name will live on forever. That sort of thing.

IN DC 1 Million, by Grant Morrison (mostly), set a million months after the publication of action comics #1, Superman did live in the centre of the sun till the late 853rd century when the Martian Manhunter had finaly killed that evil sun and they pulled Krypton through time from seconds before it was supposed to have exploded.

Alan Moore Wrote "What ever became of the Man of Tomorrow" to cmoplete the silver age as the Original crisis began to reboot everything, to mark the end of of everything. Clark Gold Krytonited himself (Powers gone forever) dyed his hair blonde and lived happily ever after with Lois and had children.

Or you could believe in John Byrne and His batman Superman Generations insanity.
I agree with Trekker. HUH??

I still think he keels over from the big one after a marathon lovefest session with Wonder Woman.

Magic Lasso and Bullets and Bracelets are just too much for poor Kal-El.

Poor guy, but somebody has to do it . . .

It's OK. Everyone has that reaction from time to time when they agree with me.

For me, and for many of us, the future is now in the past.
