    Hey guys..I really recommend reading Legion of superheroes issue 5. Straight up confirms a big thing about Jon Kent and his future role in the DC Universe.

    There's been hints before. Jon was described as the 21st century Superman, in contrast to Clark's 20th century version.

    Yes, but this is the first direct confirmation in the book. And also the double page before gives it even more clues about what's coming up with generation 5.

    I think Infinity Inc might actually be generation 2 actually. Which would make them older than we've usually seen; peers to the League instead of the New Titans generation.

    But I don't recall anyone saying anything about Infinity being on that timeline at all, so who knows?

    I'd be happy to have those characters back, at any rate.

    Bumping because in James Tynion's newsletter this week he mentions his batman plans are now going into 2021, so it seems like 5G isn't happening as originally intended as far as rumors go. He also says he has some projects spinning out of death metal and a lot of stuff comes out of joker war as well in the newsletter.

    Sounds interesting. Would feel slightly better if things didn't look like they're on hold indefinitely because of the shutdown. I would hope that they have some kind plan to get comics coming out again before late this year or even next, with or without diamond.

    Not sure what to make of the Death Metal spinoff thing. I was getting the impression it would end up being an "Age of Apocalypse" thing. Not really wanting to see much more BWL.

    As morbid as it is Covid19 might've given them the perfect excuse they were looking for.

    Hey someone else reads that newsletter! Yeah it sure doesn’t seem like Bruce is getting replaced as Batman anymore.

    That’s what I’ve been saying. They’ve delayed everything and the pandemic has bought them time to redraw and edit stuff.

    Either that or he has more time to set up Luke as the next Batman.

    If they’re not aging Bruce up, they’d likely need a different means of writing him out.

    Retiring so he can be a full-time parent? Because the others weren't worth that, but the new kid is. But eventually, he just can't take being out of the action (probably, alas, when there's something Luke can't handle)...pretty much a worse-case scenario for me. A reboot to put him back the role could happen. Not that I want another reboot, really, or think it's a good idea. But I could see it happening.

    Unless it's King writing it I don't see Bruce retiring just to be a full-time parent. I mean, most Superheroes don't retire to be parents these days so I don't see it happening to Batman.

    This seems like the perfect opportunity to drop this whole "5G" thing altogether and come up with something else. WW has already been established as the first hero. That can't really be undone now. But nothing else is carved in stone.
    Now listen to me, Clark! This great strength of yours--you've got to hide it from people or they'll be scared of you!

    Well, you just triggered my Crisis-Sense. Somewhere, someway, some how, someone at DC will create another crisis to reboot things. Again.
