Quote:I'm a reader of Supergirl and Superboy however I will be buying Action Comics and Superman in September also.
I'm not liking the fact that both Ma & Pa Kent are dead.
What's the point of that?! It cuts off Clark's ties to Kansas; an area of America which made Clark who he is.
True, he's far too isolated now, but I'm still very intrigued by it all. I think while the scale of the change is difficult to process or fully agree with, and that there's a question mark over how commited DC will be to this, it's the shot in the arm that Superman needs right now.
I've become increasingly cynical of DCs motives and attitudes over the last year but i'm still more than ready to give this the benefit of the doubt and get right behind it. Yes it might well fall flat on its face as with the last three or more years worth of Superman but at least it's breaking some new ground and going off on a tangent from what hasn't been working since Infinite Crisis. I've been doing a bit of thinking about what went wrong and why Superman has floundered since Infinite Crisis 'fixed' him and gave him a collosall amount of new/old Baggage at the same time, I think at this point what he badly needs right now is for a 1986 style enema that can start him off with a clean slate and a free hand for writers to reinterperet him.
I'm not saying it won't fall flat on its face, judging by the last few years it likely will, but I admire the balls of it nontheless.
All I know is Something had to change.... so DC have one last chance here to get it right as far as my continued support is concerned.
Welcome to Smallsville, DC 2011!
Beginning kal will be Smallsville lite, and the present day version will harken back to his PC days...
Where he was shown having some girlfriends before meeting Lois and starting to date her..
Might see full circle on Superman...
Back to his PC days, power levels and all, with him and Lois just starting out their destined encounters with each other....
