    I mean hey I much rather Damian meets Jon during his fight tournament in his ongoing series by Williamson, just to meet as friends again, but Jace does exist and they are setting him up to be his own Batman.

    Also we actually get Jonís feelings on people potentially calling him Superman.
    Hmm well Damian is 14 now the gap between them isnít so bad aside from the physical size but that doesnít matter.

    Damian should still be the older one. The dynamic just works better and is more unique.

    Where are you getting this thing with Damian being upped to 14? I didn't see any mention of it in his recent back ups. He still looks 13 to me.
    And sorry, but the circumstances and amount Jon was aged up in those circumstances remain unacceptable to. It needs to be undone in order for me to be happy with the books again.

    I think Williamson confirmed that Damian is officially 14 when his book starts. Makes sense. He should have been 14 a long time ago. Jon aged up a year between Tomasi and Bendis' run.

    Here is the exact quote from this interview: "Like, he's 14 in the book. I just think a lot about what I was at as a 14-year-old and what this kid is going through. Like yeah, he's this master assassin, but he's still a kid and he still needs his parents. He's still able to do what he does and he has these people he surrounds himself with over time, but the story with Talia will get picked up again later."

    I like Tom Taylor and John Timms so I am completely okay with this, especially since he has always wanted to write an in-continuity good Superman.

    As somebody who feels very strongly about wanting Jon deaged, this doesn't change anything. I want Jon de-aged and that's final. So I'm not giving it a chance and hope others wil do the same so DC gets the message to de-age Jon.

    Well, the only thing here that I didn't see coming was Taylor writing the book. He's still one of my favorite authors at DC but and I have been absolutely loving his Nightwing so far, but....yeah. This is still gonna be a super (no pun intended) hard pass.

    I’m starting to think it’s to late. Time isn’t exactly moving forward but it is not slowing down. Damian is 14 now, he may just catch up to Jon. I don’t like forcing him into adulthood (it’s nice to have a male protagonist who is not worried about relationships)

    The only way deage can happen is if Jon-Superman is a big flop. Then they might do it.
    This will definitely not happen in the coming years, and I'm not sure if they should. Time has passed, they have their own plans, their own ideas, there are a bunch of authors who can do something interesting with the character. Taylor deserves his chance, just like Johnson and anyone else.

    Yeah I'm also like 90% sure it's too late. Unless these books somehow manage to do really poorly. In which case, they'd either fix Jon or put him on a bus like they've done to most of Young Justice. Hoping for the former but right now the latter wouldn't really upset me as much as it would have before. Neither of those things are very likely to happen though.

    This current state is just...something we're gonna be stuck with for a while.

    There really isn't any point of Jon now if you ask me.

    I hope it'll be close to the Superman of Metropolis in term of vibe for Jon. And if it means that we won't get another bout of him as a kid, bonus point for me.
