"Saving the damn day!"

Is "killing" your best superheroes the thing you do when you're out of ideas and you want to get the "new and improved" heroes over with the readers?

Josh Williamson for the most part is a solid writer but I'm sorry to say he can't get a win with a premise like that.
Even Rafa Sandoval's art, which usually is nice to look at, seems rushed and just more

Brandon Petersen's art is soooooo bad.

Williamson's no Morrison, but he does a pretty decent job nonetheless. No high concepts like in Multiversity, but some great callbacks and entertaining moments. The discount Thanos getting merked by Darkseid while having a giant "snap" effect is hilarious. The return of the Grandmother Box (now grandfather) and Sturmer got me so hyped. Excited for more

Superman: Son of Kal-El Annual: 2021

Jon Kent’s first days as Earth’s new Superman have been a trial by fire. His actions have already put those he loves in harm’s way. He has stood strong in the path of constant attacks, but the immovable object is about to meet an unstoppable force. Lex Luthor-the man, the myth, the menace-returns to Metropolis.

Dude, a copy means you've replicated something. Conner ISN'T a copy, he's a COMBINATION of Clark and Lex. Search the dictionary for what "copy" means. Match is a copy, yes, he's Conner's copy. Conner is no one's copy. Ergo, he is the first half-human, half-kryptonian, not Jon. I am not wrong so yeah, I'm not going to admit I'm wrong when I'm not. You know when I was wrong on Black Manta I admitted as much. Seems like you're not man enough to do the same. No surprise there, honestly.
