Rhetorical Question but consider;

  1. First; Earth 2 Superman Dies
  2. Then; SuperDoom, an evil Superman, kills some other Supermen
  3. Now; Darksied has a whole collection of Superman bodies

Plus, one Superman is Ultraman!

Assuming there are still only 52 universes, what the heck is DC doing to Big Blue?

There use to be 52 Earths but we don't know if it's the same post flashpoint. There could be an infinite amount of them.

They're celebrating 75 years of Superman by wiping him out of existence earth after earth. (-.-')

@ultimatesmfan:

I know .... Serious ...where Didio when you actually want him to edit something that needed it?

We can’t say for sure that Earth-2 Superman is dead. There is possibility that he survived, was brainwawashed and took identity of Brutale. For sure we would know in October, but there some hints.

That Darkie’s room with Supermen seems dubious to me. Don’t think that dead Kryptonian that much different from dead human. Then why bodies of Supermen aren’t decaying? Or it’s actually some cryo-room, or Darkie killed them all in one day?

Overall, it feels like DC pulling Highlander on Superman:

In the end there can be only one Last Son of Krypton.

@sanohibiki: I hope they are in stasis. Interesting regarding Brutale ....

Infinite maybe.

Maybe that's why the superman now seems to be getting insanely powerful,with feat after feat,maybe it's because whenever you kill one superman,his power goes to another.so it's Highlander plus jet li there can be only one.

Seems you were right :)

@drgnx:

Yeah, read entire issue just several hours before.

Unless E2 Superman’s brainwashing is unbreakable, then I can foretell much brooding and angsting on his part, when he would return to his original self.

@sanohibiki:

Thinking maybe Those Supermen are not dead but are all being brainwashed? Since DS wanted to brainwash Superman in JL.

@drgnx: omg that would be agreat idea,maybe Darkseid brainwashes them to go back and take over their own Earth,perfect way for him to add insult to injury.

@sanohibiki: @drgnx: @stephens2177: looks like more than just brainwashing though. See the omega beams he has, not just heat vision. He amped him up. And I agree, that's an awesome story idea and very much something Darkseid would do IMO.

Good idea and potentially awesome storyline. That would very Darkie-like thing to do.

There just one problem – not so sure that DC will ripe this potential. Still, hoping for the best, because if we wrong, population of Supermen in great danger

.......

Guys, I wanted to ask for some time. How many Darkseids out there? In Pre-52 I was sure that every Earth had its own version of Darkseid. Was I wrong? In New-52 Darkseid’s origin story clearly says that he is one for all Earths.

Yep there is only one Darkseid through out the multiverse and only one Highfather so that is why they are so powerful now

I understand that in New-52 there is only one Darkseid throughout the multiverse (as you said). Was that the same in Pre-Flashpoint Universe?

For example, Superman/Batman: Supergirl ark. Darkie kidnapped her and tried to turn into one of Furies, eventually gets beaten by combined efforts of Supes, Batty, WW and others. Later, when Batman somehow appeared on gender bendered Earth, he learned that Darkseid tried the similar with male version of Supergirl – Superlad. Is that also was one Darkseid that one by one tried to do the same to all 52 versions of Supergirl and each time got beaten in the same manner?

@drgnx:

Just now noticed it. Earth-2 Superman promised to kill Steppenwolf – and eventually he did it. Supes really always keeps his word.

Anyone thinks that Brutal's partners are Wonder Woman and Batman?

#19 Edited by WIshIWasSuperman (1338 posts) - - Show Bio

@drgnx: it would be an interesting plot point, have the trinity taking over Earth 2 like that, but for Batman and Wonder Woman it's a complete power change. Batman would ha E gained some pretty potent psionic abilities and wonder woman would be very different as well. It's always possible since Superman's powers have obviously been adjusted too, but as it stands at the moment I don't see it.

Well the other dude is attached to some metal device, it could be doing most of the work! The girl .. I can't remember her details, but just a thought regardless.

Between Darkseid's Supermqn slaughter house and Superdooms rampage...IDK.

Oh my God! In all seriousness ever since Earth 2 #16 came out I'v been thinking up potential wild,awesome( well,to me anyway and now apparently to you guys too) story ideas that could happen connecting E2 16 with Darkseid's villains month issue and damn I'v literally been fantasizing about this very same idea for the past couple of weeks....I'v got some crazy interesting ideas that go more into detail and further the story of this whole thing but won't disclose it right now( its just my personal fanfic at this point) but seriously......

One of us should write superman.....Rather a Darkseid book.
