Good afternoon, /co/.

To prepare for Wednesday's rebirth of the Man of Tomorrow, I'm gonna storytime stories leading up to it.

Today's Storytime will include
>The Last Days of Superman
>Justice League #52
>DC Universe Rebirth #1 (select pages)

Previous threads:
Part one: >>90220073

Now let's watch some Supercancer.

Back before this storyline was released, the solicits called this story "Super-League".

Skipping over all three of these Storylines, because this recap is enough and they were shit.

Holding off on Variants, as skipping them allows me to post DC Universe Rebirth #1 in it's entirety at the end of the thread

I hope Superbro fans get some closure with Reborn. He got pitched out the window really fast for a guy that was THE Superman for about five years of real time.

>>90252874
Honestly I like that Superbro died and we got pre-Flashpoint superman back. It makes Superbro feel like his own character rather than "replacing superman" like every other character in this universe has replaced their previous incarnations.

I kinda feel like it would have been better if they just ended things and had him and new 52 Lois start to show attraction as his story was ending, to show Clark and Lois would always be together.

I'm the opposite because I like how it shows that Superbro isn't just a younger Superdad

A couple writers hinted at it but New 52 Lois and Clark was never really a thing. If New 52 Superman had an OTP, it was with Wonder Woman.

I agree, one of the reasons that I like Superbro being his own character from this is because then he can do his own things (or rather you can look back on those things he did) without being affected by the preconceived notions of what Superman should be or do.

Indeed.

Considering storytiming New Super-Man sometime in the future, at least after the Multiplicity arc of Superman is posted.

I never thought of trying that before.

you should do the superman rebirth one shot today than tomorrow, since it's a epilogue to this arc

I was planning the Superlex issue of JL, but the Rebirth oneshot may fit better. Anybody have preference?

Superlex issue would probably be better right before you start the first arc of Action Comics.

Batman has been making a habit of hitting super people with his plane.

The Superlex issue is included with the first Rebirth AC trade, so I'll save it for tomorrow.

As touching as these moments are, this feels a little too...small for him to just pop and "he's dead." This was superman for god's sake.

And so, we get to where the Rebirth era begins.

It might be one of my favorite storytimes I've ever done.

and then one issue later...dead lol

I'm having fun with it, OP. I'd seen the death pages but never the lead up to them, so thanks a lot for this.

Included the whole issue as to better set up the Titans crossover issue.

there were like 5 different storytime threads because different pages got leaked and then DC posted like a 20 page preview and then there was the actual storytime, /co/ was a mess

Superbro deserved better.

Mr. Oz first appeared in the Superman arc "The Men of Tomorrow", watching over the actions of nu52 Clark.

Who could he be?
Oxymandias?
Mr. Myxlplyx?
Pre-Flashpoint Lex?
>>
>>90256768
I feel like he'd recognize Pre-FP Lex.
>>
>>90256703
Green Lanterns is one of my favorite Rebirth Titles. I still can't believe how much crow I'm eating.

This week Humphries is promising to clear up Volthoom's history.

Sound like maaaabye after the next arc. The one starting seems to be about the throne itself, so we might be getting the marriage story eventually
>>
>>90256902
Direct Currents said it's happening by year's end.
That, and him patching things up with Superdad from the end of the first arc.
>>
>>
Wally and Linda continue in Titans.
>>
Tom King Batman

Simon Oliver The Hellblazer
>>
>>90256957
Didn't that already happen when Superman vouched for aquaman to the president? At least I think that happened, it's been a while since I read that issue.

Suicide Squad
Cyborg
Nightwing

I'm glad Black!Wally got better after he got away from Vendetti.

It's like... it isn't right. I love Superdad, but he didnt earn that closeness with the Batfamily like Superbro. Not yet, at least.

right, i haven't followed dc in years, but this thread is very interesting. from what i gather, after flashpoint the dc universe was reset with younger heroes and new relationship. this continuity's superman is superbro, but after five years it turns out the reboot wasn't a reboot and the old heroes are still around, like superdad. how is superdad here? also, how old is this event, is it over with a new system in place?

thanks for the thread op
