    I kinda figured both of these plotlines would be saved for Doomsday Clock, but I'm excited either way.

    This feels like the right timing, right amount of time, to get these back on the frontburner. Now that we know the scope of Black Dawn and the Revenge Squad in the superbooks in particular, getting to Oz in September (after a few short "family vacation" type stories) seems right for the Supers. As for Tim ... I could've handled a hint sooner, but obviously his capture hinges so much on the Superman books getting to the Oz revelations and it seems ... kind of obvious, maybe? Hopefully? ... that the thing that would unite Tim (and make him stay behind) and the big revelation for the Superbooks would be that Kon-El is in that prison - and that's almost the only sort of revelation that I feel would justify Tim's long absence at this point, though I've personally enjoyed the ramifications of his KIA/MIA status in the Bat-Books (Stephanie shifting gears ... Bruce dealing with that and other things that are making him want to be a better person and finally popping the question, yadda-yadda.)

    My big question then becomes ... whence Bart Allen, and will there be Flash/Legion fallout?

    I do feel like all roads are pointing toward Superboy Prime.

    I'm actually hoping it's Infinity, Inc. LOL. I know... long shot.

    Well, at least he's back. Its still Tynion writing and doesn't sound particularly interesting... but at least he's back.

    It's good to know we can finally expect the reveal of Oz's identity and what's going on with Tim in September. It's been a slow-burn, but it's good to see that coming to a head as we get closer to Doomsday Clock .

    It sounds like, whoever Oz is, they're someone who Superman would recognize.

    I hope Tynion doesn't go overboard with Tim's breakout, though I have a feeling he's going to discover the rest of Young Justice among Oz's prisoners.

    A welcome surprise, this should free up more room in the doomsday clock for the other plot points left dangling since rebirth #1, also must add I originally thought Oz was Ozymandias, but by the sounds of the solicits it's someone supes most definitely knows or atleast has history with. I still very much doubt it's pre crisis Lex or loool superboy prime, I wonder who it could be any thoughts?

    Which pretty much throws the Ozymandias theory out the window.

    About time really, Oz's identity has been dragged out for 3 years now and I cant help but laugh at the Tec solicits. Apparently some fans were convinced that we were going to get a Steph centric arc with Anarky where she would learn the error of her ways.

    But..... how would that work?

    He's met OZ in person. If he was someone he would recognize, wouldn't he have recognized him before now?
