Superman: Doomed...was okay. I'm sticking with Pak's Action Comics right now along with Superman/Wonder Woman and thought it was okay. How they've introduced and treated Doomsday so far is a little confusing, despite the fact they clarified that Death of Superman still happened. I loved they went back to Morrison's run.

When did Sam Lane become Senator Lane? Did that happen in "Superman" or something. I'm guessing parts of this explain why Clark isn't on the Justice League during Luthor's tenure.
I think he was appointed Senator of Kansas. It might have been mentioned in either Doomed, Superman/Wonder Woman or Action. There is no way he was elected since he is still military in Superman Unchained.

I think it at least happens by the time of Johns and JRJR's Superman 32.

Death of Superman happened. We know this. Doomed is not supposed to be a rehash or retelling of it, and nor does it negate anything from Morrison's run. It's just kind of confusing how they've decided to deal with Doomsday in general since they reintroduced him last year. You've Morrison's Super Doom creature from another dimension, and then you have this stuff going on.

It was mentioned in the Doomed arc, which is why I brought it up in the first place, but I don't recall WHEN exactly Lane's appointment happened. I haven't been following "Superman" in months, so it might have been sometime then. It must've happened after Forever Evil and prior to Johns return.

This stuff is why the timeline is confusing.

I just read all three issues last night and I didn't notice any reference to DoS, where was it? The Morrison issues seemed to reference Doomsday killing him, but then I read in an interview that it wasn't referring to the DoS but an alternate future or some shit like that. And I don't recall any other New52 Superman comic referencing his death... the Superman continuity seems to be a blank page reboot (unlike Batman and GL). Supergirl and Superboy and Steel are all completely different.

There was a preview of Superman #32 in one of the Superman books this week. In it we see Clark talking to Perry White at the Daily Planet while walking down a hall lined with framed news story of his death and resurrection. Perry also references it in their conversation.

EDIT: It was Superman/Wonder Woman #8

I think this is yet another instance where the writers/editors say one thing in an interview, which is blatantly contradicted in a comic a few months later...

Wait. Who is that in the "Superman Lives" newspaper? Superman has never worn red trunks.

There's already been some speculation that the undies were either a mistake or a homage by John Jr. I'm surprised he wasn't told to change it.

Morrison's run was not specific one way or the other. I think they referred to Doomsday but it was not clear if it was a character or an event. The robot was there, yes, but when the event was talked about it in the past the dialogue was kept vague, probably intentionally. Of course, I could be misremembering as often happens.

I don't understand why fans obsess over this stuff.

That was the special costume he wore when he had the pony tail.

DC has cancelled the following books today: "Batwing", "Birds of Prey", "All Star Western", "Pandora", "Phantom Stranger", and "Superboy". Newsarama is listing "Worlds Finest #26" as it's final issue in August so it might be caput as well.

Most of them are mercy killings. If Lemire finishes his run on GA he should do a run on BoP.
