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.

> 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.

I understand this problem but KC was written before all the IC mumbo jumbo. Which means that it may not have finished the same way in the new multiverse. Im a pretty big continuity stickler but any chance to have a Superman that I don't hate gets me going. When Kal-L died I just about burned the issue, im a golden age fan. And the current Superman needs to learn a thing or two about being a real hero and since Billy Batson is now the wizard looks like KC Superman is the next best choice.

Indeed. Kingdom Come led into The Kingdom, which used to be part of the main DCU timeline. Those events now apparently never happened. Gog's appearance in present-day DCU in 1998 was retconned when he showed up in '02 or '03 and present-day Superman had never met him before. If they can void The Kingdom who's to say they can't void any or all parts of KC that they don't want to follow? The original version still happened, somewhere in Hypertime, but it's this modified Earth-22 version that's tying into New Earth mythos.
