I sure hope this won’t start a death of Superboy story arc.

I just think that a death of a character story, is something that they do a lot of. And then a few months to a year later they find a way to bring back the character.

Of coarse it’s still to early to tell what will happen in this issue. Maybe it’s not what I think it is.

That second cover might be a major spoiler for Oz’s Identity tho…

I was thinking the same thing. Interesting if true.

Wait, could it be that Oz might be Superman’s father? Are they doing the Star Wars “Luke, I am your father” thing only with Oz as Vader and Superman as Luke?

These look pretty cool. I only have one minor nitpick that’s not directly attributed to the covers; I hate Lara being blond. It essentially means Kal looks nothing like his mother. I mean it can happen, I’m just not a fan of the idea.
