Action Comics will go on forever, but the protagonist and creators eventually change. Grant Morrison isn't leaving for the foreseeable future. Action takes place 6 years into the past and will eventually catch up to the present. Justice League is set 5 years into the past, and will eventually catch up too. Superman is in the present.

  1. Action Comics is an ongoing series, it will continue for ever more.
  2. Action Comics and Superman tell different storys from Kal's past and present 
  3. I'm not sure but I think it's about 3 years

Action Comics is an ongoing series. The time span between Action and Superman is said to be 5 years.

@The_Tree: So is action comics superman always going to be golden age level?

The span between Superman and the current Justice League arc is 5 years. The span between the current Justice League arc and action comics is most likely only one year.....2 at the most.

And no, after this arc concludes I think Action, like Justice League, will jump into current stories

@YoungThriller: No, once the story gets to present day, he'll be on the same power level as the Superman that appears in the Superman series.

@UltimateSMfan: Yeah I'm going to hang in there, March just needs to hurry the hell up. I know not all the titles in the New 52 were going to be good but this is Superman, I'm really supprised and dissapointed that they went in this direction for the titles first story arc. And thanks for that link mate that was a good read, it sounds like they have realy got some goods plans for the Superman titles :D I'm excited!

I don't remember it being mentioned how much further it is in the past, but it's a hell of a lot more than 6. The differences between Action and Justice League are pretty big.
