Well, the other shoe has dropped.
According to Rich Johnston, when JMS takes over Superman in a couple of months:
Apparently, the Man Of Steel is going to drop his Superman identity in an attempt to be a better man and to better relate to humanity. The story will follow his journey as he walk from one side of the USA to other other, trying not use his powers.
Curse my prophetic soul.
Wow. So Superman, technically, won't even be in Superman...just Clark Kent walking across the U.S. of A, undoubtedly not even in costume.
As I said last week, DC/Warner is acting nutsy, trying to hide one of their most marketable assets. And the only thing that makes sense to me is that they're trying to minimize the royalties they're going to owe, and trying to wean the DC Universe off of Superman.
Enjoy these last few DC Superman stories while you can, kids...the clock to 2013 is ticking...
