I'm fine with KC being the future of DC as long as Lex keeps his damned hands off Capt. Marvel!

#9 Posted by Nighthunter (28582 posts) - - Show Bio

also the red tornado of KC appears as Cyclone in JSA

a new wildcat that looks like a beast

the introduction of Black Lightning's other daughter

the list goes on and on

I bloody well hope so...

if the Kingdom Come future holds true that means some very interesting things are going to happen with Green Lantern...

with Kyle, Hal, John and Guy off in space fighting the Blackest Night, that would leave Alan behind to take care of the planet from extraterrestrial threats, just like he did in Kingdom Come...

flicked through a few issues, haven't had the spare cash to add anything else to my pull list lately...

Have you guys been reading Justice Society of America? It's been interesting lately.

I just wonder what where they're going with the whole Future Superman in modern time. It was interesting when current Superman "caught" Future Superman looking at Lois. Gog is playing a big part too. Funny thing is it's not on my pull list but I've been buying every issue. Suppose I should add it.

I have always thought that KC is and would be the future of DCU it was great story and makes sense as the future. I have read 2 out the thy kingdom come JSA and its really going.

a bit...

i liked how Hercules managed to punch Normal Superman through a wall, but couldn't even move KC Superman :p

Could be, but would that be interesting? We've already read that story. I think it would be better if all that's going on is just misdirection. Maybe only some things (like some of the characters we've seen) end up the way they were in Kingdom Come but the world as a whole actually goes on a course that's very different. Even in the world of the comic, it's hard to believe that with a Superman there who lived through it all and knows what happens/is going to happen that makes the world what it is in KC, that it will happen anyway. I think he'd stop it if he had the chance, and he does.

Also, I'm liking how they're portraying KC Supes as tougher than normal Supes. (And is it just me or are the characters in JSA really big on some pages?)

Damn, I've been trying to get myself to reading JSA but kept being too lazy. Guess I should start asap.

#21 Posted by zero edge (3696 posts) - - Show Bio

Where's KC Supes appearing in? I've been out of the loop in DC for months, are these stuff tied in to the Countdown? could someone fill me in on what I should be reading?

#22 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

yeah, i only grabbed today's issue under G-Man's recommendation and love it :D

Yeah you should.

Methos, put up the fight with Hercules.

On another JSA note (I think we're jacking the thread) what do you guys think about Jakeem and Lightning?

no chance...

would you want to mess with her father? lol

not even Jakeem's that stupid, and thats saying something

I laugh every time I see Hercules hit KC Supes. (I've reread it a few times, lol)

I think Jakeem is going to try something. BL can't be watching all the time.

#28 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

he can try...

yeah, Jakeem's going to try something, and then get his ass handed to him lol

#29 Posted by Buckshot (18686 posts) - - Show Bio

They could be the start of a new dynasty. We have the Bats, Supers, Arrows, Flashes, why not the Lightnings? BL would be the original, then his daughters (and their attachments Grace and Jakeem) and the children that spring from those couplings (the lesbians can have clone babies or something) and then see where that goes.

I know, I'm an idiot. Leave me alone.

Issue 9 is where this started. I did a write up for that one explaining how KC Supes arrived: http://www.comicvine.com/comic/justice-society-of-america/18052/114434/&i=27589

Another thing that makes it different from the regular Kingdom Come is having Superman go back in time. Unless he forgets everything when he goes back.

Just a quick note on supermans superspeed and reaction time, technically, Herc shouldn't have even made contact with that elbow, and to make matters worse, he made superman bleed with his elbow??? while KC supes just stood there and didn't even twitch! I know KC is much older and more powerfull than current supes, but it's not that, it's just that it doesn't seem to be thought put into current/new earth supes in situations like this! Herc shouldn't have been able to even touch supes, let alon by making him bleed just by elbowing him in the face, which superman, being as smart as he is, would have been cautious enough to see that comming a mile away and be standing in front of him by the time Herc got his elbow up, and given Herc a good dose of heat vision to wake him up while he realised what was going on! just my opinion!
