I think he is New 52 Superman. Without superpowers, appeared in Action Comics in the same clothes in which he was in Batman\Superman Annual 2, with chronic amnesia and with inattention. The fact that always diplomatic Superman became diametrically opposed, already hinted at, something is not right. Besides, DC after Convergence has not returned to the events of Batman\Superman Annual 2. It already seemed strange. Also, apparently he escaped from prison M. OZ. A tower with no access to sunlight and escaped was shown in comic about the Superman.

My money is on either PF Hank or a Clone created by Mr. Oz.

Based on the recent issue with Lois stalking Clark-2 and watching him walk into his apartment building but then the teller saying no one ever walked in, I'd say he's some kind of psychic projection from some enemy, probably Oz. I never considered it being Post-Crisis Hank Henshaw, that would be freaking incredible. But then how would they solve the New 52 Cyborg Superman and Henshaw? Hmm..this is exciting. I think theres a greater chance of Clark-2 being revealed to be Grant Morrison than it is to be New 52 Superman.

I'm hoping for Superboy Prime, though I don't think it's happening.

He seems crazy like Prime, but I not so sure it's him.

This guy proposed to Lois Lane while Prime NEVER cared about her in the past.

I'll just vote that it's Mr. Mxysptlyk and wait to see what happens.

I forgot to add a New 52 Superman choice, it probably is going to be him if it's not Prime now.

I think it is New52 Superman. They'll probably kill him off (again) in an inglorious manner to drive home how much DC hates him now. (Really DC, WW doesn't even have an issue to mourn the man that supposedly loved?)

@rdclip: Doubt it's new 52 superman. He died on good terms with everybody.

What would really be crazy? If either mystery Clark or the person who just escaped Mr. Oz was Pre-Flashpoint Jimmy Olsen!

DC have solidified with Rebirth that Diana did'nt love N52 Clark as much as we were led to beleive.

Diana addressed her relationship with N52 Superman in Wonder Woman Issue 9. She told Steve she only thought of their romance as an "easier" means of coping with the belief she had'nt been a good romantic in the past, which she was trying to set right by being commited to Steve.

Also it was implied the romance with N52 Superman was one of the many "lies" influencing the character at the time.

@zariusii: I'm not reading WW because I literally cannot stand Steve Trevor. But hearing that, I feel even more sorry for New52 Superman (I still like the rebirth Superman more). Way to further crap on the character, DC. First you depower him, kill him off then sweep him under the run and now the woman he loved and wanted to marry didn't even reciprocate those feelings, ouch. Maybe mystery Clark shouldn't be new52 Superman because he would go Superboy Prime crazy with how crappy people treated him.

Because of the human DNA, I'm saying it's Pre-52 Hank. He only needs a small amount of tech to survive.

After reading the issue. Everything swings to new 52 Superman.Krypto would know the New 52 Clark plus we all know he is not dead.

The Suspects they have at the end. Only Mxy an MM could be pulling something like this off but why would Jonn do that?

Mxy has the power to do this.

New 52 has been mentioned quite a few times in different comics he is not dead. The Album of Pre Crsis Clark now why would New 52 Superman if that is him have it or is the other half of Superman.

Bizzaro Makes no Sense .He is nothing like Clark

Eradicatior does not look like Superman at all an would not care about Lois.

Magog does not fit in at all.

Who broke out of the prison from OZ now that is another thing. That would be something more like Prime than anything else. Doubt who broke out has anything to do with the other doppelganger.

Still I feel Dr Manhattan hand is at play hear with the blue energy.

@tensor: Unless something weird happened that I missed, I agree that the mystery Clark is Mxy. He's completely vanished multiple times and had that limo driving with NO DRIVER! Maybe something rebirth related happened and it screwed him up?

As for the prisoner, I doubt it's a Superman since the person was asking for Superman to save him/her. Having said that, would it be crazy if the prisoner was Pre-Flashpoint Jimmy Olsen??? That album was full of photos and I remember him having powers, kind of.

@masterofevil: At the end of the comic they gave a list of who it could be. Only three stick out in my mind. Mxy ,New 52 an Jonn.

The rest makes no sense an is just trying to throw us off.

Either way I am dying to see this end. I really like what DC did with this Story.

Hope the end is even better than the build .

@tensor: Agreed. But Mxy is the only one who can blink people out of existence.

Plus it's hard to imagine New 52 Superman or Jonn doing that to a kid. And Jonn doesn't even have a motive!

On top of that, neither of them would have access to an album of Pre-Flashpoint Superman's life.

Money is on Pre-Flashpoint Mxy.

That guy lived to screw around with Superman.

@costy21: If you read the comic at the end they show you couple characters who is behind the doppelganger Clark Kent.

One is only right. The rest is to throw you off.

But when they put in Jonn yeah he could have pulled it off but it does not make sense at all. That is not like him an why would he be in loved with Lois.

I honestly think it's either the pre-Flashpoint Eradicator or the Martian Manhunter.

A true unexpected twist would be a deranged pre-Flashpoint Manchester Black who's alive somehow and believes himself to be Clark/Superman.

And if it's either of the telepaths then Jon is not erased, he is just psychically hidden.

Yeah I never saw a deep, real love between Superman and Wonder Woman on any single page of that series. And I read most of it unfortunately.

So would I, I hate Prime too. But there are strong clues indicating it's him e.g creepy behaviour, a child like diet of Belly Burgers and his breakdown when he found out Lois was married to someone that looked like him with a son. And if it's New 52 Superman his fans will be riled up that New 52 Superman is the antagonist to Pre New 52 Supes.

Hopefully if it is Prime he will be redesigned from the ground up and written much better. Also cut out the over the top power. Still when you already have characters like evil clone Bizzaro, Eradicator, and even Henshaw it makes him more than a bit redundant.

To be honest it doesn't bother me if they get riled up considering them turning N52 into a slap to the face of the concept of Superman character and them thinking that was fine. Probably childish of me but they had a get over it attitude that makes me want to reciprocate.

It's probably been suggested already but anyone think that SMP and N52 Superman are the same person? Maybe unknowingly at first.

I can't really guess all that much since I'm still on my break from comics after the New 52 and Marvel Now soured me to them.

Prime does need to be more than a caricature of a comic fanboy, that's why I don't want it to be Prime. He might just turn into that again and we don't need to see that any time soon. I might prefer it to be New 52 Superman actually, at least then they can say he was mindwiped and depowered.

I never liked New 52 Superman very much but there were those who did and for him to be the villain in this arc would be obviously frustrating. We were pretty frustrated when New 52 Superman replaced him after all.

It has been mentioned on a couple other forums as a possible theory, but you might be onto something. Definitely unknowingly.

Yeah I recall seeing you post that you were done with DC and Marvel after the New 52 and Marvel Now. Can't blame you at all, Marvel are still as bad as ever, if not worse.

I hope mystery Clark won't be Prime. Based on past portrayals of Prime, I just don't think Superdad can win a battle with him unaided. If it was Prime, he would have tried to 'kill everyone to death' at the very moment he realized who he is. He has got the power to do so.

Considering I never took the garbage S/WW relationship at face value, damn right I beleive ir. N52 Supes was too clingy and seeked loving approval, and Diana was way too try-hard. She never convinced me she loved him, and now my beleifs have been validated.
