    That’s the ending in my Absolute edition, but it could be a later addition to the story. Never read that JSA arc (or any of Johns JSA to be Frank) so I wouldn’t know.

    Oh he’s definitely going off to space, but Superman & the Authority takes place on Earth, so it’s not inconceivable that while Clark will be primarily off-world and Jon will be primarily Earth based, both of them could operate on Earth and in space concurrently. We’ll see how they divy up the responsibilities is what I meant.

    Well the preview pages we have seen so far are all on Earth, don’t know if it goes into space yet although with Warworld involved that wouldn’t be out of the question either.

    Its not like it is very difficult for Superman to get back to Earth or some other planet if he needs to so I can easily see him going back and forth.

    Is it not more likely that Superman & The Authority takes place on Earth first because it's about Clark putting together his team (whom are all from Earth) to go off world?

    Superman & The Authority is a 4 issue mini that's specifically made to (and advertised as) set up the new status quo for both Son of Kal-El and Action. Given that, is it not far more likely that he will be off world totally once this is done and Action catches up to Son of Kal-El?

    The timeline seems to either be:

    1) Warworld Rising, 2)September Superman Event, 3) Superman & The Authority/Son of Kal El, 4) PKJís Action run proper; Or

    1) Warworld Rising, 2) September Superman Event/Son of Kal El, 3) PKJís Action Run, 4) Superman & The Authority/Worlds at War

    I forget how they phrased it, but I think solicits are worded in the same vein as the Future State ones in that theyíve only implied Superman & The Authority is showing a new status quo but not if itís meant to be a present one.

    Not sure how the September Event fits in the larger scheme of things in DC's long game, but it looks like there could be a lot more shakeup type stuff on the horizon. Even more events spread over the next few years. I suppose these new events could be working towards going way big on changing status quo, or setting things back to how they were. All speculative of course.

    Seems like we’re still going to get some of 5G after all, just implemented much more slowly than Didio’s “all at once” approach. I like that rumor about a “Trinity” trilogy of books although it all seemed a bit confusing: https://bleedingcool.com/comics/batm...ogy-dc-comics/
    Bleeding Cool has learned from sources that DC Comics is to publish a trilogy of books based on the DC Trinity, with Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. And which will then spin off into a number of new comic book projects, setting up much of the central DC Comics universe going forward. Maybe this could be seen as something like the Earth One graphic novel line, but with an impact on the other titles? That's just speculation, however.

    Jon's heat vision looking Cyclops-esque.

    The way his hand is posed almost looks like he's doing the Cyclops hand-on the visor stance also.

    I wonder if jon could do this.

    Or do bend his heat vision like cyclops does his concussive blasts

    Now THAT would be something.

    The solicits keep talking about some new power he has so...

    In the recent issue

    spoilers:
    Jon could manipulate his heat beams on a molecular level to interact with water molecules and explode in midair. Felt similar to combustion bending. The Shadowbreed is also said to be unable to withstand a certain spectrum of light, so perhaps Jon has such fine-tuned control over his powers that he can manipulate his heat visionís wavelength too? Maybe heíll blast differently colored beams and detonate it to mimic the radiation bomb.

    IMO the Supers should have varied abilities (and Kon should never have lost his TTK) so Iím all for creative uses of the standard Kryptonian power set.
    end of spoilers

    Yeah I liked the development of Jon’s heat vision. Guess they’re finally starting to show how he’s “more powerful” than his dad. Story is fine but it definitely feels like filler now that we know it’s just laying the ground for Taylor’s Jon book and PKJ Action.
