Many are speculating that this could be either Aquaman or Martian Manhunter.

"Lantern" - Part 2

Reviewed by: Matt Schorr
Clark's first reaction to the ring as a nuisance makes perfect sense. This version of our hero has no prior experience with a Green Lantern ring. He's not aware that it was created to be a force for good, and his lack of understanding on how to use it gets in the way of his responsibilities as Superman. In the past, Green Lantern rings were incapable of causing fatal injury. We have no way of knowing if that's the case here, nor does Superman. So his horror at seeing green missiles aimed at a group of men on the ground is understandable.
Toward the end of the story, it seems Clark/Superman has accepted that he can't rid himself of this ring, at least for now. So he's hoping to learn how the thing works in order to, at the very least, not hurt anyone with it. Smart thinking. And it fits with Superman's mentality.

Pak: We're all telling the story, so you want to jump on and get 'em all, because it's going to be awesome! [Laughs]
It's a big story, and different parts of the story will be covered in different books; each book will lead to the next. We're also writing so people who are reading only our books can pick that up and have a great story, but I would highly recommend getting them all because the sum impact of all of these together is going to be something special. The other thing I'll say is that each one of us is writing his own book, so we're going to continue to imbue them with the special, loveable quirks that make them our books! [Laughter] But at the same time we're working together to tell a big story, so it's the best of both worlds.
Soule: I think a good example of that - just to add to what Greg has said - one book that you can definitely pick up that will help you, even if you're only going to follow one thread in the Superman line during the event, you should pick up the big "Superman: Doomed" one-shot that I think comes out beginning of May. It's a big, annual-sized issue that gets everything going with a bang, so to speak. Get that for sure, and then follow your heart! But as Greg pointed out, it's going to be a lot more fun if you read them all.
Lobdell: Reading Greg's "Action" book, there's a lot of emphasis on the Tower and the Ghost Soldier and Lana's connection with Clark and Smallville, and Charles is keeping focus on where Superman and Wonder Woman are dealing with the impact of "Doomed" #1. And in "Superman" #31, I've been telling and building this Lois/Brainiac fallout story for the last several months, so each of our books are still reflective of the storylines we've been working towards. But in the bigger scheme, they all tie into this week-to-week story. Greg has put his stamp on "Action," and Charles' "Superman/Wonder Woman" has its own flavor as well, so people who have been buying these books all along are, I think, going to be happy with the fact that its not a crossover where there's no room for the existing stories. What we've done is make sure these books still read as the books the fans have been enjoying.
Pak: There's a fun thing when the crossover starts, too, where you'll see characters that have mostly been in one book pop up in other books. I got to write fun Wonder Woman stuff, and you'll see that sort of crossover happening, which is a lot of fun.
Soule: There is a big character from the Superman world that has yet to make an appearance in "Superman/Wonder Woman." She shows up in issue #8, which is the one where we're sort of dealing with what happens in the "Doomed" one-shot - and that is Lois Lane. We will finally get to see Lois Lane in "Superman/Wonder Woman," which hasn't happened before. I think it's a pretty fun scene people will like. She has a pretty big role in the crossover in general, so she'll start to show up more.
Look for this story to begin in "Superman: Doomed #1" available on May 7.
