H'el and his possible ties

Posted by knightofthechronicle (686 posts) - - Show Bio

Ever since I knew about the new Superman Storyline "H'el on Earth", something immediately clicked with me that I don't think a lot of people saw, the only thing I did see people take notice of was how H'el's name sounded like "hell" and how they thought that was a little bit redundant. I never was able to start off from the bat and say what I thought, but now I can.

Now then, H'el, H'el, H'.......EL!!! Thank you, I just really had to get that off of my chest

I still think he'll end up being the New 52 alteration of Bizzaro (even though they've publicly stated he isnt :P)

there is a strong possibility that one of Superman's ancestors had ties to the cloning project on Krypton

the name is still pretty dumb. I think that he was going to have something to do with the Eradicator since they kept mentioning him in the 0 issue

The House of El is responsible for just about everything we know about on Krypton. They were a royal family at one time... which kinda goes against the whole genius thing... and they ended the Clone War thing on Krypton... probably started it to. They also created the eradicator... probably designed the first space ships and such...and they were the ones to ultimately break from the Eradicator stopping Kryptonians from leaving Krypton.... Oh yeah they also created BRAINIAC in some incarnations.

I'm pretty sure H'el is what Scott Lobdell was talking about when he said something to the effect of, "We re-imagined a character in this really awesome way, but at what point does it stop being a re-imagined version of a character and become a completely new character instead?"

I believe he was supposed to be Bizarro, but became a character in his own right. Now I'm betting that he has to do with the whole clone thing that got brought up in great lengths during the Superboy #0 issue.

Thanks for all of the feed back guys, I know I didn't sound all that appealing in this post but that idea I had was just jumping around in my head like a jack rabbit, I had to get it out.

Stick around, I have more coming up.

@Durakken: Thanks, I was going more for Sherlock and not Mr. Obvious, but I'll except the prize either way. Let's already get this out of the way, I'm a smart Alec. :-\

I took me longer then i care to admit to reognize the "el' in H'el.

I don't think he's a clone though given Kara's rather loud anti-clone stance and the fact that she joins with him, though I guess it being discovered he's a clone would stop that.

If anything, I think he was supposed to be the eradicator or possibly a revamped "Match", I'm still waiting for the first superboy clone to show up...
