Earth 2 is getting a replacement Batman. It seems that earth 2 is also getting the expected replacement Superman. Maybe they are bruce wayne junior and clark kent junior who used to appear in imaginary stories in World's Finest. Altho the cover suggests, the earth 2 batman shown is the original earth 2 batman who is now dead so the story probably is set in the past before the death of the earth 2 batman.
@deaditegonzo:I gotta say Rocanforts art is stupendous.He should draw Superman forever ..or GL.
AGREED. I never thought anybody would usurp Lee as my favorite current artist (as Alex Ross hasnt been doing a lot lately, I saw his "The Shadow" covers), but Rocafort totally has.
And what I like about Lobdell is, he doesnt seem to be afraid of Superman's campy elements, or afraid to just let Superman be powerful. He is writing huge scale stories and putting Superman first, and I think thats great.
The earth 2 story seems to be set in the past before the death of the earth 2 batman and death of earth 2 superman, so it is probably set before the first Justice League meeting. In the older continuities, Superman and Batman have already met before the Justice League was formed.
