> In Adventures Of Superman #505, Lois said that everything that had occured over the last month was like a bad nightmare. So according to her, everything from the moment we first see Doomsday break free to right then, was all supposed to be a month. Comics generally like to cram a lot of stuff into a month's time.

I bow to your better memory, and thank you for the specifics.

Hey...

If nobody who knew Clark noticed his hair was a lot longer than a month's normal growth would explain (and that it was just as long as Superman's) then I won't worry about it either. \:\-D

Besides...

INFINITE CRISIS TIME REVISION, AND RET-CON PUNCH!!!!

Supergirl/Matrix posed as Clark while Superman freed him. They both then took a picture together with Lois, done by Jimmy. Since Clark had been buried for a month, they could understand his hair being longer. Superman's long hair would be a factor in "Dead Again". How this works post "Infinite Crisis" hasn't been said yet. Though I'd wager that it'd be J'onn.
