Definately not the Last Son of Krypton...

Postby BubbaKanoosh » Sat Jul 26, 2008 9:35 am

The upcoming storyline "New Kryton" bring 100,000 Kryptonians to Earth.

Some interesting tidbits from the article..

"You've got 100,000 people with the powers of Superman," Idelson said, "but they weren't raised the way he was. They don't have human values. They don't know what's important to us. And it's going to get messy."


"And there's hundreds of Zod's soldiers in there from when Brainiac attacked Kandor. It's not like, 'Hey! Cool! We're back! Alright!,'" Johns said.


Johns said that Superman, Supergirl, 100,000 Kryptonians and Zod's soldiers are just the start -- the entire Superman universe will be involved in the story.

"It's going to involve the entire cast and a lot of the villains. It's going to redefine a lot of villains, like Reactron and Metallo," Johns said.

It's not like this hasn't been part of his history for a really long time. It's Kandor being released. It'll be temporary and then they'll be stuck back in the bottle again.

I'm hoping it's not temporary. I don't know how they could work it out, but leaving them in another of the 52 universes might work. I think the "Last Son of Krypton" tag hurts the Superman mythos more than it helps.

I always like the Last Son thing, but the droppin them off in one of the 52 could be cool.

I've always liked the "parents sacrificing themselves to save child from dying planet" part more than the "lone survivor of his planet" part. Plus, it's not as if DC will ever truly adhere to it anyway, so what's the point in even pretending?

I'm very glad that I still have no idea what you are talking about. That sounds awful. Jeff Loeb really is a terrible writer sometimes.

It sounds like an awesome story.

I wonder if they'll end up in the Phantom Zone with Zod and his army. That's a whole lot more Kryptonians also.

Superman Wiki wrote:The story revolved around an amnesiac Superman living with his wife, Lyla, in Kandor. The story updated Kandor and gave Superman a variant costume, as well as introducing a new Kryptonian villain, Preus.

Lyla was actually an alien empath controlling Superman's mind. The new costume was the uniform of the Kandorian police, of which Kal-El thought he was a member. Preus was a fellow officer who worshipped Superman but was racist against all non-Kryptonians.

Wikipedia wrote:Eventually shattering the illusion, Superman escaped Kandor and confronted Lyla back in Metropolis. Preus followed them, but exposure to Earth's air and yellow sun drastically affected him, giving him strange, new powers equal to Superman's while amplifying his already-unbalanced racist views.

Convinced that Kal-El defiled the legacy of "The Superman," Preus swore to assume that responsibility himself, and that all of the impure would die by his hand. His xenophobia led him to a group of white supremacists in the American desert, who he forced into worshipping him and his views. However, in time, the people of "God's Peake" (as the camp was called) came to worship Preus as their cult leader. His increasing prominence eventually led both Martian Manhunter and Jimmy Olsen to investigate, only to have both of them captured by Preus and his men.

This forced a confrontation with Superman, who, at the time, was dealing with the effects of Gog's synthetic Yellow Kryptonite, which had significantly aged and weakened Superman in a short period of time. So weakened, Superman was barely able to deal with Preus' legions alone, and quickly found himself outclassed by the (at the time) much more vital Preus.

A last-ditch gambit using Kryptonite to try and weaken Preus failed, as Preus revealed a previously unknown resistance to Kryptonite. However, he was finally defeated when Superman attacked and destroyed a key portion of Preus' armor, rendering him unconscious. Afterwards, Preus was injured from that attack and had to be hospitalized. His current whereabouts are unknown. He was last seen as a weakened Superman tried to fly him to S.T.A.R. labs for treatment. Preus disappeared after Superman was engaged by an army of Gogs.

They'll probably end up in the Last Son version of Roykin.

Action went back to the "read at the bookstore" list as soon as the "Legion" story ended. I have totally disliked Johns' total pu$$ification of Clark Kent.
