    Bendis: "Public service announcement! This is the cover to action comics 1017 on sale today. You will see in the left and right hand corners it says action comics and 1017. It is also part of @dccomics gigantic year of the villain! Brand new storyline!This brings Lex Luthor and the Legion of doom right to Superman’s front door. Guest starring the justice league and young justice. A lot will happen in this arc. Leviathan. Invisible mafia. And of course Superman’s truth. Metropolis will get a new mayor? And most importantly, I get The honor of once again working with actual comics legends"

    Metropolis seems to be getting a new mayor like I hoped, and given the the fact that Melody Moore just showed up again in 1017, I think she's the likely new mayor.

    I really want to see more development to local Metropolis politics, so I hope whoever the new mayor is, they’re going to play an important role going forward.

    Couldn’t you make it a past, present, and future line if you really wanted to?

    I noticed that in Young Justice issue #11 we finally got the confirmation that Conner Kent is not part of this timeline. Similar to Wally and Bart, he was simply somewhere else when the revisions in time happened.

    Now while it's more than possible Clark and some others may start to remember him like Tim did (but that's not a given). I feel fairly comfortable saying that it's very unlikely that Jon will 'remember' him, thus the idea of them functioning like 'brothers' right off the bat gets called into question.

    For Conner this seems like it'll be starting over to a degree, and I think that's intentional on Bendis' part. There's more reason for him to feel comfortable changing his super name and such. I imagine this will also play up his 'black sheep of the family role' and kind of make him like the new Power Girl what with the "you don't belong anywhere" comment.

    Now I'm wondering how Doctor Glory remembers him and how she "read up" on him, but also how she knew about the shifts in time. It feels like Bendis is building something of a conspiracy with the people who know about the shifts in time, and he's also now confirming that there's tangible evidence of past timelines. You have Glory's notes and Leone's Action Comics #1 car.

    Also this seems to confirm that the new DC timeline is based on the revisions of time. So even though Clark and Bruce are technically in their 80s, they've actually just been in their 30s for decades because of revisions in time.

    I'm now wondering, with there being people that know of these shifts in time and have evidence, will this make its way into public knowledge at least in the hero community? I mean, Legion Millennium issue 2 seems to confirm that by Booster Gold's time the revisions in time during the 20th and 21st centuries are public knowledge.

    Interesting stuff.

    Isn't this true of every character, though? They could set a Black Lightning book in the 1910s if they wanted to, right?

    Not according to this timeline, no. Wonder Woman came first in the 1930s.

    But they would likely be just fine for anything out of continuity.

    I mean the difference with Jon is that he’s never met Conner. I mean unless New 52 Teen Titans is cannon, which it could be I don’t know the whole timeline stuff at this point, the only version of Jon Conner has ever met is the evil version who replaced him from an alternate universe. It would actually make no sense if Jon suddenly remembered Conner who he has had no history with.

    It would make sense similar to reborn did. Jon was 'remembered' by everyone including perry who became his godfather after reborn. Perry and jon had no relationship before that.
