Probably not the right time to rain on the parade and bring this up but couldn't they just let superman die and replace him with Kon-El.

The thing that DC has always had over marvel for me is the ability to move on and start the next generation. But then they muck it all up by keeping the same superman and batman on 'Marvel Time'*. Then everything gets whacked up and they try and fix it with mindf#@%s  like crisis on infinite earths.

This is what makes me respect Image/Todd McFarlane more. Much as I hate Jim Walker as Spawn, at least Todd had the maturity to kill off his character and leave the story intact.

Ok rant complete
For those who are curious, yes I am gone and I don't intend to be back soon. I never formally said goodbye to you all, because that always becomes a forum stink. However, to my friends here, I wish you the best. Perhaps I'll be back one day but for now this is goodbye.

-Fred

With the release of "Last Stand of New Krypton" #1 this week, DC Comics' two-year long "New Krypton" saga kicked into high gear as the story speeds towards its explosive conclusion. The three-issue miniseries, written by James Robinson and Sterling Gates, ships twice in April (April 7 and April 28) to make way for the final chapter, "War of the Supermen," a four-issue miniseries shipping weekly in May.

Robinson and Gates, who previously spoke with CBR about "Last Stand of New Krypton," will, once again, share writing duties on "War of the Supermen" and will also team for "War of the Supermen" #0, which arrives in stores across North America on Free Comic Day. Each issue of "War of the Supermen" will feature a different art team, with the solicited artists listed as Aaron Lopresti and Matt Ryan (#1), Jamal Igle and Son Sibal (#2), Eduardo Pansica (#3) and Eddy Barrows (#4).

CBR News spoke Robinson and Gates about the upcoming Superman event and the two shared details about the major players involved in New Krypton's 100-Minute War with Earth, including Zod, Superman, Superboy, Supergirl and General Zod. 

Robinson also shared his thoughts about leaving "Superman" as J. Michael Straczynski ("Brave and the Bold") becomes the new series writer with #701.
