Exactly how many Supermen are there?

#1 Posted by Eradicator (306 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't mean the different Earths as seen in Infinite Crisis, I mean there is Superman, Superboy Prime, (Connor is dead), Steel, Cyborg,....I saw the poster for the new Crisis story arc at my comis shop today and there were three men who were wearing the Supe's costume. One was Cyborg, one had the red and black S on the chest, and the other was wearing the Black and silver Superman costume with long hair. Who are these other two guys?

one is cyborg superman, one is kingdome come superman and the other has the suit that superman had when he returned with a cape, so he may be from a diferent earth (but I hope that it becomes superman's new suit)

In his defense, it was Superman crying last time in Diana's lap. Maybe he had other motives.

mm well this is supposed to give us clues about what is gonna happen in countdown, like in the first we see that Jason todd will become the new red robin or the death of the new gods

the part of mary marvel probably means that both eclipso and granny grandma will train her, the things that belong to the big three will probably mean that something bad is gonna happen for them, the broken face of darkside talks by itself, the broken green arrow may mean the fake death of olliver queen or the real death of connor hawke and the atom simbol in kingdome come superman may mean that he was seant by atom to this universe

for the thing of luthor, it may be because he'll be sent to another planet in salvation run

it's because she's had about 20 different origins when they were first trying to introduce her...

she's been brought in at least 8 times with over 10 issues per 'character'
