when i came across al;hpa one at first i just heard he was the fastest man on earth which got me interested thinking "how could he be faster than the Flash when superman isnt even that fast.) 
 
Come to find out he is practically a near perfect superman replica (in terms of powersand Looks) for DC. with him getting his own series trying to give him more of a background do think this could be DC's version of Superman incase another deal doesnt go thru with the Seigels? 
 
Simply put,      IS THIS SUPERMAN'S REPLACEMENT?

no. He's in his own universe.  He is the fastest man on earth, because he's the only one with powers on earth.  He's just a "what if superman was psychotic and had a god complex?" character

I agree. The whole tone of the world he's in is depressed and jaded. There is no "truth, justice and the american way" - no higher ideals or values.. He's a media spin doctor and capitalist (in a bad way).

Superman has no replacements. Just re-told origins once in the while.

Alpha one is Psychotic and has a god complex? Sounds like Marvels Sentry
