    That's about what I expect too. I mean, that's the whole damn point after all; history is broken and the heroes know this and have been trying to fix it since 2016. We're getting a continuity overhaul after Metal 2, but in most cases I doubt we're getting a fresh start.

    But that can still be considered a "reboot." It's changing continuity, some of those changes might be fairly big (like Diana being a Golden Age hero) and maybe some people would call it a "retcon" but the words don't really have hard definitions.

    If I've learned anything talking comics with various people throughout the years its that reboot means different things to different people. In comics lexicon its definitely a relative term.

    The new interview from Bendis inspired me to go back through the past 7 issue of Legion, and I noticed two things about Ultra Boy

    - Ultra Boy's tag in issue 2 says "invulnerability except to radiation"

    - In issue 3 you can see Ultra Boy seems to display another power in the form of a green barrier that seems to cover his weakness against energy/radiation attacks.

    This actually reminded me of the 90s version of Superboy back when he had TTK as opposed to real Kryptonian powers. Back then energy based attacks could harm him.

    How? Superman X wasn't harmed specifically by radiation. Ultra Boy *seems* to be powered by some kind of "ultra energy" that he can shift to one power at a time and then also use creatively as a barrier. He's even shown being hurt by energy weapons.

    So that's why it seems like it's inspired by 90s Superboy. To me at least

    Yeah the energy weakness I agree with you totally, but the green shields are what superman x did. So like a mix of kesel SB and superman x, jist one power at a time

    Honestly it was more of a dome or bubble, so somewhat similar to 90s Superboy's TTK bubbles, but a bit more expanded.

    If Brian Cunningham is indeed out, that could herald a shakeup to the Superman line.

    Harras too, but apparently the mid line has been hit hard and sadly that's Superman's home, albeit at the top of the middle generally.

    It's a strange time.

    Glad Harras is out, though.

    Me too. The Superbooks are said to be safe, but Bendis is almost certainly going to be off the Superbooks soon, given his soft sales. Wonder Comics is probably dead as well with Khouri and Cunningham gone. Least we’ll always have Wonder Twins, Dial H, and Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen, all time great books.

    Cunningham isn't the editor of the Super books from months, ex-Bat editor Jamie Rich is currently editing Supes.

    he said in a that recent interview he is safely under a good contract, guessing he'll be off the superbooks when he's already planning on leaving. That interview was still before all this unfortunte news hit, though, he also talked about future wonder comics plans, like Jinny Hex, Naomi etc which are likely less safe.

    Thank you for the correction. Rich seems to have survived the current layoffs, although there’s more coming, so maybe the Superbooks will avoid suffering major repercussions.
