Not sure on this, but I remember reading that eventually, the events of Kingdom Come would take place on New Earth. This true?

It was sort of prophecised that it would happen. Maxwell Lord's whole mission from the White Lantern Entity during Brightest Day was to stop it from happening, which is what he did in the pages of Justice League: Generation Lost, by killing Magog.

@The_Tree: You don't think it'd happen anyway?

@comicdude23: No, I don't think the pre-Flashpoint continuity would've fit into Kingdom Come, and DC would never let the characters age to the point that it could happen. Now with the post-Flashpoint continuity, I definitely don't think it'd happen, especially since key members from the JSA that were in Kingdom Come are over on Earth-2.

@comicdude23: i think for an event similer to kingdom cme to happen in the New 52 would happen later in the futre once the DCnU is more grounded but yea it would be cool to see.

Did you read the first and third arcs of Superman/Batman? He has a pretty sweet appearance in it
