Action Comics 988

This was so much better than Superman 31 last week. "Jor-El" tells a mighty convincing post-Krypton origin story. On the one hand, his retroactively revealed new post-Rebirth canon, here, would make for an important issue - and interesting one. On the other hand, as Kal says, he has been conned quite convincingly in the past most recently by that completely shamworthy other Clark Kent courtesy Mr. Myx. It will be interesting to see which way DC goes with Superman's alleged father and even moreso what new details he will reveal about his cosmic abductor that allegedly saved him from Krypton exploding.

Great cover. Curious variant cover image inference. Servicable inside art.

Because at the end of the day, they can say all they want that this is the real Jor-El, but all it'll take is another writer or editor to wipe it all away. They'll say it's an alternate reality Jor, mental manipulation on Superman's part, or whatever other excuse they want to go back to the status quo.

Remember Return to Krypton, where supposedly the MOS Byrne Krypton never existed and it was always a Krypton that resembled the Silver Age that he came from? I recall quite strongly that Jeph Loeb, Eddie Bergenza and others arguing that this was the Real Krypton, there was no way they were faking and trust them 100%.

We all know how that turned out.

So I'll be surprised if this remains the 'truth' in 5 years, let alone 20.
