    Maybe we'll see another definitive origin of Superman in 2010. You cannot flog a dead horse too many times.

    I don't foresee DC eliminating Superman: Secret Origin after just a few months.

    I didn't dislike the first issue, but I find it so... unnecessary.

    I can't imagine DC getting rid of Supergirl.

    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

    The Legion of Super-Villains has a team in the present

    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.

    And someone will will told to "Kneel before ZOD!"

    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.

    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

    Arion is displeased with your disregard for the majesty of ancient Atlantis.

    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

    That's the only way that it should be.
