    I'm not so sure.

    The Hank Henshaw from N52 timeline is getting pretty close to some Kryptonian technology.

    A couple of points:

    Zod still has his New 52 look. That makes an argument for the "90s/2000s history is back with the Morrison Krypton/origin" scenario.

    Superman Black. Manchester Black is probably the villain. He's been running around the New 52. If his memories return, he might go back to his old MO of trying to make Superman kill.

    My thought is that if the timeline changes to reincorporate more of Superman's history, we'll see a "time wave" transform Henshaw into his old self.

    So, is the mysterious force in the swamp Manchester Black? Seems a dead giveaway mentioning the title for Action #775.

    That's what I'm hoping for as well. Cyborg Superman was one of my favorites until John's stole him as a Green Lantern villain..

    Which actually would raise an interesting question, if the timeline changes are purely to Superman, and radiate outward from there only as Superman's personal history being "restored" would dictate, which is: Does that mean that the Post-Crisis Superman was always responsible for Hank Henshaw turning out the way he did? Does anyone who's life turns out badly "again" after turning out well in the new52, who morphs from a hero or neutral character "back" into a villain, or transforms from a small-time villain into a super-villain; owe those negative life changes to Superman? There's always been that question as to whether Superman sort of creates his own enemies inadvertently- the old "Gee, it didn't seem like shadow monsters and tentacle creatures were released every other day here in Metropolis until Superman got here." thing. Here it'd be redoubled because it may be a direct result of his own timeline- they weren't bad or as bad with New52 Superman, but now he's been backported into Reborn Superman, and suddenly they're all really evil, just as a result of that port. Maybe New52 Superman was better in the context of the safety of the average DC fictional universe citizen than SuperDad is.
