    Default Action Comics Issue #1022 preview





    "Mark my words! This drill will open a hole in the universe. And that hole will become a path for those that follow after us. The dreams of those who have fallen. The hopes of those who will follow. Those two sets of dreams weave together into a double helix, drilling a path towards tomorrow. THAT's Tengen Toppa! THAT'S Gurren Lagann! MY DRILL IS THE DRILL THAT CREATES THE HEAVENS!"

    We walk on the path to Secher Nbiw. Though hard fought, we walk the Golden Path.

    I wanted jon to meet conner,that's my disappointment too. This feels like a reboot with many talking heads. None of whom seem to have a continuity. What a mess.

    Exactly, I thought Conner was explicitly from pre-Flashpoint. That means he should remember Cadmus, Guardian, Dubbilex, all of it. Instead it's like the Hawaii era has been completely retconned out despite the fact he's now wearing a similar costume to that era's.

    I think the problem with Conner is that this comes out before Benids’ big reveal in issue 15, the whole why no one remembers Conner, Bart, and Young Justice, which I think is out June 16th so I think he’s being intentionally vague so not to spoil his own story.

    I like Jon and Brainy just having a laugh, something just genuinely nice about it.

    This weird rebirth/post reborn cotninuity never makes sense because writers keep choosing to use their own rules in reagrds to it. And with how flash forward ended, they can just chalk it up to saying the multiverse is broken as a reason for any continuity errors.

    Yes I am also disappointed...
    I dont understand what is in continuity and what not..


    But thats absolutely disappointing:
    If you compare the TT Conner who was able to fight against Superboy, Doomsday Clone,Brainiac, Gog etc. and now he sounds like a fanboy...

    I am also sure that he was at least once in the Fortress as he got his name Kon El...

    Correct. Bendis is clearly not familiar with the entire original solo run. I bet he only read Peter David's Young Justice, which didn't feature Superboy's and Impulse's solo casts and only rarely used Robin's.

    I kind of love it.

    Really like that we're getting Jon in there as fast as possible in the first issue of this arc. Love that Clark is being so warm and accommodating because he gets that, before anything else, this kid in front of him is going through some stuff and needs help. I really dig how Conner is totally befuddled with the meeting, but Jon-- without even an second of hesitation-- introduces himself and goes in for a handshake.

    All that is just nice to see. Like, you'd assume they'd drag the meeting out more, Clark would be all Young Justice style put off by the idea of this clone (as opposed to being, well, *Superman* who deals with sh!t like this all the time), and Jon and Conner would find some half baked reason to fight. But no. It's chill. The real story is what it should be, and that's "how do they all function past this initial point."

    ________

    And when Jon and Brainy show up that's totally a homage to Bill and Ted, right? It's even got one being dark haired and the other blond, and they're both obviously time traveling like Bill and Ted.
