Thx for the thoughts. I think it has something to do with 52 as well maybe it ties into the loss he felt over Superboy's (Conner Kents) death. Either way it looks like I didn't miss anything said solidly yet. Another thought what is the fabric made out of?? I imagine its at least bullet proof...or I hope that it is!
