    Yeah, that. Already seeing the fun facts about corn fields at the start of each issue. Boring as sh....
    Snyder should write Flash, come to think of it.

    Nice. Funny that H'el is all hugs and little brother until Superman points out the flaw in his story, then H'el gets pissed. Lies I say. I still dub him Kon 1.0.

    Now I'm actually hoping that snyder doesn't steal the 'flagship' position once he joins. Lobdell is doing just fine.

    This is a fun event, I don't want it followed up with some ULTRA SERIOUS ones.

    Makes me wonder if his mind isn't messed up, rather than him being completely nefarious.

    Barry would probably meet someone who could run faster then him, and then cries about how he thought he was the fastest man alive all these years.

    Nah, it's just that apprently, turning your back on someone is very rude on Krypton.
    "I need your help to save our home planet, little brothe......hey, are you turning your back on me? Are you fucking turning your back on me, you son of a clone? I'm talking to you dammit!"

    Its possible, though this issue actually has me leaning more toward deliberate deception now. I think he knows his story is bullcrap, hence why he gets so defensive then goes out of his way to manufacture a wedge between him and Kara. Now Kara won't ask questions because she'll be mad that "Superman" attacked and insulted her.

    If I were to take a guess, based on the backwards S, which he somehow purposely hides from Kara, I'd say he actually has a massive grudge against the House of El, and is only using Supergirl because at this stage he needs an ally.

    Yeah, but at least it would be in character for him to think of random facts with little connections to the plot.....unless I'm mistaken. Barry did have this whole "flash fact" thing, right?

    Oh right I missed the context there. That would actually work really well as long as it's not with the "biggest baddest story i could possibly tell" stuff.

    Nah, it would just be a nice little story that will "shake Barry to his core".
    For Snyder, it would be Tuesday.

    Lol. I dunno, I think having Lobdell and Snyder on Superman books at the same time is a good decision. Would be great to read the contrast between the serious/dark of Snyder and the carefree/fun of Lobdel. I think having widely different tones will make things interesting. Versatility ftw.

    Wonder which angle Diggle will be going for, then.

    Well I read from Tony Daniel's interview, that they are trying to make Action aesthetically different from the other Superman book. So I dunno what, but my guess is that it will probably have a slightly different tone to it. To be honest I'm not at all familiar with Andy Diggle's writing.

    Edit: I read on Andy's twitter today that as much as he really likes a calm and humble Supes, he is having a blast writing an "Angry and badass" Supes. That's cool.

    I don't think he actually had super-superspeed in this issue, though. I think he was just doing the same turning things invisible again... but then again maybe Supes would've seen through that.
