DC’s The Source blog has the cover of Adventure Comics #4 up on the site currently and it seems like most of the fans are thinking the same thing I am: Why? Just…why?
Superboy/man Prime is a character who would have been a great one-off character in Infinite Crisis, I think, and whose continued use has diminished him with each go-’round. At the end of Final Crisis: Legion of Three Worlds, only a couple of weeks ago, I thought to myself, “Why in hell do we need a cliffhanger here? Why do we need to be told that, yep, he’ll be back soon?” And now, seeing that they can’t keep in their pants for six months? That they can’t keep him out of a single big crossover event?
This character has become the Sylar of DC Comics. Ugh.
