    I'm really looking forward to this run. Hopefully Pak doesn't tweet that he's off the book next week! Anyway, one question I would have liked to have been asked was how often Wonder Woman will show up. Obviously, it won't be that often; they have their own book and JL to play in. I imagine she'd have to be somewhat present, even if it's more Diana then WW.

    Yeah he did Superman's debut to Metropolis in #0(how he got the job at th Daily Star, t-shirt/jeans costume, his first outing as Superman and how he got the name) and I guess #1-4/7-8 can be seen as his zero year/year one of sorts.

    If this means what I think it means, ie the "old Superman," with gravitas and a recognizable (rather than in-development) moral compass, then I agree. I'm so tired of the modern take on the character that I barely look over the new issues anymore. I call it the "Kyle Rayner-ing" of Superman. He's been taken back to ground zero, being a neophyte, and now we'll have to watch his development into maturity for the next 5-10 years. Ugh. Who has time or patience. Is it SO bad to have "Uncle" Superman, with a clear sense of direction and values? Not boring to me at all! The excitement is in the creation of good villains, and in the moral dillemmas he faces, not in his own moral self-questioning.

    Looking forward to start picking up Action again. I'm just unsure about picking it up at Zero Year or just waiting for the main, non tie-in, run to start.

    Still wondering what exactly has Superman done recently that would justify the idea he doesn't have a recognisable moral compass.
    And the only moral self questionning so far may have been on Unchained, and even then I haven't checked it colesly enough to make any kind of valuable statemen on that one. Hell, the old Superman so far was much more into the whole "self questionning" thing.

    Why does she have to be present?

    I'm a little hesitant about diving into the run just yet given the pricing/content changes.

    Greg Pak's a good writer as well but I'll most likely give it a read off the shelf to see if I really want to continue buying it.

    Well, it would be strange it she wasn't there at all, with her being his girlfriend and stuff, but I guess she could be not that present, and let the whole thing to Superman and Superman/Wonder Woman.

    Yup, that book was created for her presence. We don't get Superman in her book now do we?

    I believe one day this WW thing would be broken so its good to keep her isolated from most Superman stories. Otherwise we will have too many WW connection with Superman characters/mythologies. We do not want to be thinking of Lex and Brainiac as a common Rogues of both Superman and WW, do we?

    The WW book is a special case. You can bet that if someone else was writing, he would be in it, wether the writer would want it or not.
    And saying she shouldn't be around because one day it will end doesn't really make sense. It would actually be an arguement for the opposite. Since we know it's going to end at some point, better to make "the most" of it. Plus, from a storytelling standpoint, it would be downright strange that Superman's own girlfriend wouldn't even get a mention.
    And finally, if you think that just because Lex or Brainiac face Diana once will make her a shared rogue between her and Sups, you underestimate the kind of connection being in one's Rogue Gallery for more than 50 years create.
    But let's not make this yet another Superman/WW romance discussion.
