All I can say is ''That Ass''

Anyway, Superman unchained looks good.

WTF is up with Batman/ Superman? Is this even canon?

Yeah, do they mean Earth 2 James Robinson's title? I thought that crossover was still 2 years away!

Sweet, I'm looking forward to these. Except for anything by Lobdell. I'm really annoyed with him.

@akindoodle: It seems so. This pretty much recons anything that has happened in JL.

Earth 2 is getting a replacement Batman. It seems that earth 2 is also getting the expected replacement Superman. Maybe they are bruce wayne junior and clark kent junior who used to appear in imaginary stories in World's Finest. Altho the cover suggests, the earth 2 batman shown is the original earth 2 batman who is now dead so the story probably is set in the past before the death of the earth 2 batman.

@colonyofcells: You think there will be a replacement Superman? There should be. Since there is a WW and Bats one.

I see a lot to be excited about. Superman Unchained, a seeming return of Brainiac, and the fact that Lobdell will have more total control of Superman.

AGREED. I never thought anybody would usurp Lee as my favorite current artist (as Alex Ross hasnt been doing a lot lately, I saw his "The Shadow" covers), but Rocafort totally has.

And what I like about Lobdell is, he doesnt seem to be afraid of Superman's campy elements, or afraid to just let Superman be powerful. He is writing huge scale stories and putting Superman first, and I think thats great.

@sandman_: Geez, can DC not get their NEW continuity straight? But I guess it's for the best. Clark should never be fists first, words later like he was in that JL issue (JL's been a mediocre mess IMO)

Not exactly thrilled about Lobdell now in control of both Action Comics and the namesake title.

@akindoodle: It seems like a retcon. It doesn't really make sense. It would if it was the 5 years timeline.

@sandman_: And again with that stupid "let's-shoot-ourselves-in-the-frigging-foot" 5 year gap. It's messed up so many things for them... maybe the solicit refers to their first mission together outside the JL?

The earth 2 story seems to be set in the past before the death of the earth 2 batman and death of earth 2 superman, so it is probably set before the first Justice League meeting. In the older continuities, Superman and Batman have already met before the Justice League was formed.

BRAINIAC!

Wasn't a fan of the caterpillar version by Morrison. Hopefully this version will be more similar to Johns'
