    Meanwhile, as a parting gift to the DC Universe (and to Superman in particular), he'll restore the JSA (and, by extension, the Legion of Superheroes) as well as Jonathan and Martha Kent. That's Johns' style: he is himself an optimist, and tends to go with “the good guys triumph” endings. I'm not sold that there's going to be another Crisis; I think it's more likely that Doomsday Clock will end with a more extensive version of what Superman Reborn did.
    I do think the JSA (and Legion by extension) will be back at the end of Clock, and maybe the Kents (or at least one of them) unfortunately, but that leaves a number of other loose ends that need to be tied up.

    And no matter how this gets resolved, it's going to result in a new continuity. Even if it's heavily post-Crisis there's still a number of things that won't line up with that continuity that'll create substantial changes (Wallace/52 Wally, Jon Kent, etc). I can't picture DC adjusting their whole continuity without making a big deal out of it.

    Snyder's Perpetua storyline seems queued up to do the heavy-lifting in regards to the continuity reshuffling. My guess is that Doomsday Clock will content itself with resolving the Dr. Manhattan, Mr. Oz, Flashpoint Batman, Pandora, JSA & Legion subplots, which will explain the changes DCU continuity has already undergone, but the big reset will be reserved for Snyder's crossover. However, if Snyder's Justice League starts to lose steam and readers' interest, Didio may change course yet again.

    If there is any constant to DC Editorial, it's that Dan Didio changes his mind a lot. Given that DC now has a new head honcho who no doubt has her own ideas, that will play a factor as well.

    It would be somebody in D-Clock who has played a pivotal role. I'd guess Ronny Raymond or Martin Stein.

    Another possibility could be Joker himself.
    Yeah, I'm not suggesting Lex is their kid. That was two different thoughts about the series' developments.

    But, Mime and Marionette and the Three Jokers has been bouncing around my head. (I'm assuming one is from the Metalverse too, but we'll see.)

    Agreed. One of the best things about the story so far.

    I am grateful for Doomsday Clock.

    Yes, I am aware of the delays, but I look forward to each issue.

    Compared with DC's other event book where I can't help but just scratch my head after looking at the previews.

    I agree. At least TDC is a quality book.

    I said from the onset that I thought it would be revealed that Joker was Marionette's and Mime's child.

    That's my theory as well.
