    I take it as the Superman fanbase will be even more divided after Wednesday. Thanks DC, as usual.
    Let's not give Rich Johnston anymore credit than he deserves, which is none at all. He's the master of clickbait non-stories. His next "big story" will have to do with DC's radical decision to keep publishing Batman comics.

    To be fair, we all knew the ultimate solution to all of this won't please everyone and extremists on both sides are going to agree to hate the outcome.

    What we are going to see is the fusion of two continuities together. The extreme anti New 52 opponents who were salivating at the prospect of the entire New 52 era being completely swept away and Superman's back story returning to what it was preFlashpoint verbatim are going to be disappointed that elements and some story content of the New 52 are going to be folded in. It was not all crap, after all.The extreme Superwonder shippers who are wishing Jon and Lois to burst into flame so Supes can go back to having a soap operatic relationship with Wonder Woman as if the last year of stories didn't happen of course are going to be disappointed because that ain't happening, and the Superfamily is here to stay for the next year or two at least, if not much longer. Supes as a family man has struck an undeniable chord and Jon has become pretty darn popular.

    Me, I'm bracing to be disappointed that my hope that we can finally be rid of the arbitrary line between PreCrisis, Post Crisis, preFlashpoint, Post FLASHPOINT can all be erased or very very blurred and we can finally have a Superman that is the sum total of his whole published life in the way Batman and pretty much every other iconic hero ( aside from the mess that is WW) are seen. I think this " new" Supes will be focused on reconciling the Post Crisis continiuity and New 52 continiuity more than anything and maybe that's what it should be, but I think we will now end up with the 5th separate version of Supes to add to the litany and once again a divided fanbase further divided.

    We will see for sure Wednesday I guess.
    When it comes to comics,one person's "fan-service" is another persons personal cannon. So by definition it's ALL fan service. Aren't we ALL fans?
    SUPERMAN is the greatest fictional character ever created.

    My biggest fear about this issue is that it won't give us definitive answers outside of the merger. We'll have a Superman who is now the sum total of some of the New 52 experiences and most/all of the pre-Flashpoint experiences, but who and what is behind all of this will simply be teased yet again. I'm thrilled that Superman seems to be at the center of the Rebirth story, but I feel cheated by the lack of definitive answers that could be given now. What I really want to see is Superman receive this new/old history, then become a champion of restoring hope and optimism to the DCU. I have a feeling even Aftermath won't give us the answers we should have at this point.

    I was hoping for this too. Who knows? Maybe DC will surprise us and we'll still get it.

    Bleeding Cool of course, you know it's possible Rich is exaggerating.

    Whatever this ends up being, the Superman continuity coming out of Reborn MAY be, like 95% Pre-Flashpoint. The Death and Return arc and Reign of the Supermen, the marriage, and Secret Origin are likely to be canon once all is said and done. And maybe even a bunch of stuff from the Silver Age (rainbow Batman, Mxy flashbacks) and the 2000s like President Luthor, Loeb's Superman/Batman, Joe Kelly's Action run (please let Action 775 be back), and Our Worlds at War (we did see Diana's Golden Eagle armor a few issues ago in Wonder Woman) will be back too.

    But I wonder what the continuity issues would be then. Because if we do get a character's continuity back, wouldn't it just...be back and everyone remembers it? What if we STILL have the status quo that Superman remembers things that everyone else doesn't remember??

    The article makes it sound like Rich doesn't know what's in it and his source, who presumably does, is the person claiming it'll cause controversy and that some people will hate it.

    I'm scared for New52 Superman. If this winds up being another kick in the nuts to New52 Superman fans, it's really a low, low blow. They bring our guy back a year later, it better not just to be kill him off again or tell him us he's a fake or something. I want a merger with his continuity making up a part of the Reborn Superman's continuity, or him taking over again, or getting his own monthly, at minimum.

    Otherwise, why bring him into it at all? It'd just be some sort of hate porn for New52 haters to enjoy. I mean, they didn't have to do that, if that's what they are doing, a year after they killed off New52 Superman. Rebirth seems to enjoy trashing New52 Superman over and over again. I guess it doesn't have any merits of it's own to spotlight if they keep having to beat a dead horse- eh, Superman- a year in. I hope instead it's an olive branch that gives New52 Superman fans a reason to be interested in the Reborn Superman- that our guy is part of him or something in more than a symbolic way.

    I think we're all getting too worked up on this it's just Bleeding Cool they like to blow things way out of proportion sometimes so I think we should just wait and see for ourselves if it's controversial or not.

    Everyone is expecting a merger so besides that I don't know what else they could to that can surprise us.

    True, we just don't know the extents and how that will actually work yet.

    Rich said on another site that he is going to post spoilers later today, so we'll know what's going on soon.

    I tend to not read spoilers but for this story I'll have to make an exeption I'm just too into it.

    I will be rounding any and all spoilers up and dumping them into a thread that will not be available until Wednesday

    Would it be ok if I made a spoiler thread if Rich posts a article today so we won't have to keep using spoiler tags?
