    Spoilers are out. A side of the war will definitely be disappointed.

    So, I read the BC article with the big spoiler for the finale of "Superman Reborn"...

    I'm face-palming so hard right now that it's giving me a headache.

    It feels like a lazy fan-fiction. A Clois fan-fiction.

    That Superman and Lois are the center of the DCU and everything revolves around them?

    Because concidering their creation in ACTION #1 in 1938 is what gave birth to the genre and the DCU itself,that ain't fan fiction.
    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.

    You're not a fan of it? Really I think it was the best possible outcome and I'm glad they did it everyone might not be pleased with it but it could have been worse.

    No, doing all that stuff for the kid is the "fan-fiction". He's the "real" center of the DCU. The one who is really important (cit. Superwoman #8).

    When I read it, I couldn't stop smiling. I THINK I pretty much got what I was asking for.

    I guess you were kind of wrong about the history thing not to be insulting or anything.

    Yeah, I don't see what's wrong with it. I would go into more details about my take, but I forgot how to spoiler tag lol.

    Look at the splash page, you'll notice there's been at least one retcon.

    Yeah, like dumping all of New 52 and just full on restoring preFlashpoint.

    spoilers:
    it's a compromise. It's not exactly preFlashpoint and not exactly Post FLASHPOINT. It's a little bit of both. I can imagine those that hoped Nuperman was going to be completely erased are going to be just as disappointed as those who wanted to just go back to Nuperman and get rid of preFlashpoint full stop. Given the situation DC got the character into over the bulk of the last decade, it's honestly the only way that makes sense going forward. I can live with this compromise and I think most others will as well.

    spoilers:
    I have. I've pored over that thing, but if you're talking about what I think you're talking about, that was sort of in the cards. And I sort of predicted it in one of my previous posts. If you're talking about ANOTHER thing that people seem to think is true, then I think that looking at it in more detail reveals that its not.
    end of spoilers

    I realize that's confusing, but PM me if you want clarification of what I'm talking about.
