Re: Speculation on DC's Major Superman 2010 Event?

If they retconned away the marriage of Lois and Clark, I'd walk away as a reader. Just as I did with Spider-Man.

If there's a superhero franchise character that by the nature of the thing survive a divorce, it's Spider-Man. I wish I understood why they didn't tolerate considering the option.

That's one of the reasons why the Mark Waid/Grant Morrison/Mark Millar "reboot" in 2000 was shot down -- they were going to eliminate the Clark/Lois marriage.

The way they were going to do it was... interesting to say the least. Brainiac would have infected her mind, and if she remembered she was married to Superman the knowledge would have killed her. So the marriage still would have happened, everyone else would have known except Lois.

I don't know what this big event is going to entail, but here are a few things I think will come into play.

Daxam - There was just a whole annual dedicated to Krypton's sister race and it's history. This paired with Mon-El's presence in SUPERMAN leads me to believe the Daxamites will be major players.

Brainiac - Yeah, this guy's story is still building.

The Legion - We know the missing Legionnaires are in the 21st century. We've seen Tellus, Sensor Girl, and, of course, Starman(boy). We've also just been told that



I think in the end Kandor's going to end up somewhere out of Earth's solar system.

Superman and Supergirl (and Krypto) will be the only powered Kryptonians left on Earth.
Besides Power Girl of the JSA, of course.

Oh, yeah. She is Kryptonian, albeit from another dimension, these days, huh?

In the old days too. There was that Atlantean middle period, but that's best forgotten

Sounds like what they did to Janeway.

Comic books really don't like marriages, do they--at least, not the happy ones. But then, after decades of saving the Earth and coming back from the dead, I suppose relationship drama is one of the few forms of drama left.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

I can live with that.
That's the only way that it should be.

Krypton still exists. All we've seen was staged as part of

The Kal-El Show!

Re: Speculation on DC's Major Superman 2010 Event?

My guess: the big event will be more than one "big event:"

Superman returns to Earth.

Zod and other Kryptonians want Earth after something happens to New Krypton.

There's a massive Kryptonian war in the process.

I'm just grasping here...

Re: Speculation on DC's Major Superman 2010 Event?

Here is my question.

Superman is unstoppable, except by magic or Kryptonite.
Zod has proven to be all powerful.
Supergirl is like her cousin.

How would Earth stop an invading army of Kryptonians. Once they all soak up that yellow sun how does one stop a RACE of SUPERMEN???
Bring out Shadowpact? Crossover with Harry Potter? What?
A serious depowering of the mythos has to happen thereby making Superman, well, less Super. How are they(DC editors) handling this Kryptonian influx??

Either something makes the Kryptonians leave Earth or they do so by choice, IMO...

The Kryptonians have already left Earth. What needs to be done is to curtail all the animosity between Earth and New Krypton stirred up (mainly) by Sam Lane.
