Re: Chloe Sullivan Should Be Introduced in Superman Secret Orign

DC's only just brought Cat Grant, Ron Troupe, and Steve Lombard back from relative limbo (Cat and Ron having spent less time there than Steve). Bibbo and the Guardian are back also, but since "New Krypton" ended, we've not see the staff of the Daily Planet at all. Where would Chloe fit into that? Or should she be included in Geoff's story, reference once in a while, but not added to the regular cast?
Most of those characters you just named need to stay in limbo. Goddamn Bibbo Bibbowski.

Re: Chloe Sullivan Should Be Introduced in Superman Secret Orign

Chloe starting Checkmate doesn't make much sense, since Checkmate's origins are already there as a part of Task Force X (the other branch being the Suicide Squad). And while origins can be retconned, I don't know why they'd retcon it to have a civilian start it, instead of it being a part of the US government.

I could see Checkmate being investigated by Chloe, who got tired of Smallville and sought out a big scoop to jumpstart her career working for a major news source or starting her own internet news source. Checkmate could capitalize on this and give her an official position in P.R. to help soothe their tarnished image.

^ Oh there's a big reason why Chloe starts Checkmate, and in my fan fic Task Force X is the military arm of the organization that goes and does all the dirty work (my version of the Suicide Sqaud, in fact in whispers TFX members call their unit the Suicide Squad).

Nice.

What if she's the last Manhunter from Smallville that hasn't been scrapped yet? Y'know, on the run from Superman Robots and Green Lanterns?

That would be admitting Millennium happened. While I don't think it was horrible, isn't it easier to just sweep it under the rug?
