> > 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.

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.

Not as long as it was shown as being. That growth was more than one month's worth. Also, Matrix made Clark's hair be as long as Superman's since it appears they all knew Clark [the real one] would next be seen with that same hair length.

Or one of Superman's robots, since Silver Age elements are being restored. \:\-D

Then again, we STILL don't have a final answer on whether or not Matrix ever existed. (Even if the Pocket Universe didn't she could have been created in the mainstream DCU, and have a slightly different origin, but still end up becoming Supergirl for a while.)
