    Default Detective Comics#966 Discussion and Spoilers (Relevant Superman Developments)

    We get to see a flashback to how Future Tim was taken from his own time and place. Before he's captured, he is contacted by a Titans-affiliated Superman who tells him Victor (Cyborg) is attacking their outposts, and that Tim needs friends. Tim plays a recording of Stephanie talking to Anarky. She says she has forsaken JL protection to help take down Tim, who she said tried to hold the world together himself but was ultimately broken by it.

    Tim and Future Tim have a conversation about the future, with Future Tim revealing Dick became Batman again after Bruce died, but ultimately gave it up and left Gotham. Jason took up the mantle, but ran afoul of a thousand ninjas and was left a broken man after a great battle which cost him a leg. Damian took over...and...well...he's Damian. Gotham went to hell with him in the cowl, so Tim had to kill him.

    Tim and Future Tim make use of synthetic Kryptonite and a hologram of our Superman to keep Doomsday at bay and eventually teleport out of Oz's prison and back to Gotham

    Future Tim tells past Tim to apologize to Conner Kent, but Tim doesn't know who that is, which shocks Future Tim and brings him to tears as he realizes this timeline has been altered and nothing is set in stone, but he comes to the swift conclusion he must kill Batwoman

    Although Tim does'nt address who the Superman in the flashback is by name, it probably was Conner.

    Really hope this leads to Conner’s return.

    Kon is out there,somewhere in a hypertime possibility,that's a positive,that says he isnt totally erased from the DCU,it just means he isn't here now,but could be.

    Curious if Tim didn't know Connor because he goes by Kon-El in the new 52 or just didn't know Superboy at all...

    Kon-El... Another waste of time... We should see future solicitations for believe that he can return..

    Batman 666 reference... However, I doubt that Bat-Damian was worse than BatsTim, killing his enemies and with many enemies and few allies.

    He's been forgotten just like the Justice Society has been forgotten. They'll be back, he'll be back, it's just a question of when.

    Does make me wonder who the blue energy guy in Oz's prison is. I thought it was Conner. Bart Allen? I dunno.

    I'm hoping DC creates a very distinct seperation between the pre Flashpoint and new 52 kon-el.the clone of Superman and Lois lanes son,and the hybrid Superman/lex clone that grows up into the Tomorrow kon.

    This is the perfect time to give Kon his origin back,Rebirth him into neither of the n52 or Tomorrow,just like Reborn Superman is supposed to be neither but both versions of the supermen.

    I wonder in the Tomorrow future if Vic's team is the other Titans or the JL,because it was the other Titans in the past stories

    Huh, I'll have to sit down and actually read this book sometime because all I did was pick around for the Conner stuff. Was it any good?

    DragonPiece brings up a pretty good point when he asks if Tim didn't know 'Conner' simply because he only went by Superboy or Kon-El in the New 52, but literally no one has mentioned his existence since Rebirth started, and when the timeline was changed enough in Reborn to make it so Steel was no longer the 3rd superhero active, they left out changing Kon's past. The name Superboy even seems like it's something that came about with Jon. The scene doesn't have as much heft to it if Bat-Tim just could've said "what about Kon-El." So maybe he is just gone.

    Maybe Tim's deal going forward is going to be getting Bart, Conner, and Casandra back after he finds out what they could've been to him? Idk.
