Did anyone understand the message "GO" written on the wood pole? Did Midnight carve that? Interesting little hint at... something. Maybe I'm simply too tired right now to think critically enough to place it.

And did this issue make anyone else totally excited for the new Superman. He was being something in 1 issue of his arrival the current Superman hasn't done in years. Inspired. He tries to get back so he wont interfere with their lives because he knows he doesn't belong on a world where things were not ruined. What a stand up guy.

Obsidian is awesome. Nuff said.

Finally it might be possible that Superman's age does indeed make him more powerful. They hint he may be as fast or near to Wally. And Starman is surprised when he resists his powers so easily. In KC he was supposed to be stronger because of his extended exposer to the sun so looks like that may hold in this universe as well. Lets hope he stays around for a good long while and teaches current Superman how to inspire again. After all, the last time he inspired anyone was when he died \:\-P

Like Jason, I originally thought it meant "Goth", however by the end, it looks like someone is killing not only "New" Gods, but also false gods, so it might relate to that.

hmm. Not really. For one thing his presence and words make zero sense unless Kingdom Come ended about 6 pages earlier than it really did. Everyone didn't die. By the end of the mini, he looked to be in a good place and they were in the process of rebuilding the relationships between the normal and superhuman populaces. And there's nothing in the story to address that this little continuity error is a story point and not an error or willful ignoring/re-writing continuity to make it fit the story.
