I read the Sideways annual and it's not that much of a "farewell" to N52 Superman, it leaves the door open to him returning if someone chooses to use him. He'll just be crusading around the multiverse righting wrongs.

Ok, I'm going to try to detail this as best I can...

Jon was born in the 2015 Convergence event, then he and the family spent ten years or so trapped on N52 Earth in secret, then came the mess where Mxy broke out of one of Manhattan and Jor-El's prisons and got angry at the Kents for abandoning him. He captured Jon and played a sick reality-bending game with the Kents which resulted in them merging with the N52 versions to rewrite all of reality. In that reality, Jon was born naturally on Earth and the Kents spent ten years together raising him.

What about Chris who was General Zod and Ursa's son adopted by Clark and Lois?
Chris' history with the Kents was wiped out.

See, when they wiped out Matrix Supergirl, the explanation given was, "It takes far too long to explain her origin and it's far too complicated for a character who should be simple."

You could now literally apply that to everything they've done for the past several years. And people wonder why fewer people read comics, and particularly, DC comics.

It reminds me on a smaller scale how Lucius Fox had a rebellious son named Timothy and a younger daughter Tanya. Now they dont exist and now he has a wannabe vigilante son Lucas and a daughter Tamara.

Commissioner Gordon had a son named Tony, a secret government agent who died then does not exist, but James Jr, a psychopath is in his place.

I suppose Chris and whatever the boy's name is who is now Zod's son is the latest example.

Another new interview with Bendis

https://www.cbr.com/brian-michael-be...ics-interview/

On Lois and Clark


Quote:
CBR: Well, so much ink has been spilled over the Lois and Clark marriage and how Superman works in that context. You've been able to play with their relationship and add tension and drama to it without it being a question of marital strife. Was it hard to crack that story open?

Bendis: It's actually one of those things where I was able to draw so much from the work of other Superman writers like Pete [Tomasi] and Dan [Jurgens], who had established the family and what they wanted and also what problems were forming. I come in almost like a family therapist and say, "Here's where we are. What do we need to get to the next step?" And people who read #1004 saw Lois literally look at the camera and say "We're not breaking up," but they still are asking if they're breaking up. And it just goes to show how fragile a relationships like this can be. I'm so grateful that people have passion about this, but my goal isn't to break them up. I think they're one of the most passionate, loving couples ever. I just want to get back to that.

On the return of Jon

Quote:
CBR: Shifting to the other side of the Superman coin, Jon is coming back from space in January's issue of Superman. It seems odd to say this because you've really been on the books less than a year, but you've been able to have so many issues out that his return does feel like an event and not just something that happened after the snap of a finger.

Bendis: And we're parents, so the idea of missing your kid for an hour is enormous. I really think we did a good job reflecting how much Superman misses him. Even though it's only been a few issues, he never stops thinking about him. So when Jon comes back and I did promise in Action #1000 that he'd be back soon he's coming back with a lot of story. A lot of story.

CBR: You also get to play with this fun concept of a superhero kid because you don't have to let them age in real time or at all, but you can ramp it up as well if you want. It reminds me of some of the stories that have been done with Franklin Richards over the years.

Bendis: My inspiration was how devastating it would be to lose those formative years. I mean, I hate it when my kids go to summer camp. They love it there, but they go away for a few weeks and I don't get to experience anything they experience. They come back and they look older! You have this experience when you drop your kid off for camp, and you pick them back up three weeks later, and they have a mustache. This is the superhero version of that. Clark's going to have missed out on something really important to Jon, and it's going to hurt. It's going to hurt bad. Hurting Superman has to be a big deal.

It involves Superman a lot more, and it all goes to hell for him by the end, so at least things are starting to escalate now.

Fair point. Let me rephrase:

Do I get more Marionette and Mime goodness?

I was a little thrown with Doomsday Clock#8. When did Jason Rusch bow out of the Firestorm matrix? He was one of four B-list heroes replaced for sake of diversity 2005/2006, but like the others the previous incarnation returned in some form. Brightest Day made classic fans happy reviving Ronnie Raymond, but kept diversity with Jason, who was the subconscious advisor. When did Martin Stein reform Firestorm with Ronnie?

I wouldn't be shocked if it was just a goof, or something they're aware of but don't think warrants a great big explanation.

I don't have the answer to your question, but I know in past cases of things like this, the writer is told "Just wing it" and not worry too much about continuity. Especially if it's Johns or Morrison; if Johns wants to use "Classic Firestorm" in his Big Story that's gonna sell a ton of books, then what he's doing trumps whatever else has happened with the character recently, and they can explain it or not bother.

A similar case was when "Classic Aquaman" showed up during Final Crisis, despite Arthur being dead around that time, and someone else taking up the mantle briefly in "Sword of Atlantis" or whatever. But Morrison wanted to use Classic Aquaman for a scene, so they told him "Go ahead, we don't need to explain it", and there it was. They DID later just hand-wave it and say, "It was Aquaman from another Earth", but the truth is it was implicitly supposed to be the "real" one, and they simply didn't want to have to go into details about bringing him back from the dead or why he was wearing his Super Friends outfit.

Same deal here. Casuals more likely know Ronnie and Stein as Firestorm, so they just shrug the rest off rather than explain it. A little bit annoying but eh.
