This new site layout sucks. Just in case it wasn't obvious.

@theincrediblesuperhulk8642: It sounds fine the way you describe it, Superman has been through a few major life changes and that's bound to have an effect on a person, even Superman. However, the way Bendis handles it in this issue feels out of character and insincere to how Clark should be feeling. Also, it would have felt more natural had Superman talked to Kent Nelson about his frustrations rather than the new Dr Fate who he hadn't met before.

Edit: Also sorry for not responding to your previous post, I did see it.

@zariusii So 5G goes from the new status quo to another possible alternative future. Quite a step down. Nor do I like the sound of Jon moving to Smallville and making it his Fortress of Solitude along with Metropolis the new Kandor. It sounds worse than what we've got now.

Boros wins comfortably. He has superior stats in Meteoric Burst, has the regen to recover from any damage received and if all else fails, King Piccolo can't take a CSRC attack.

@entropy_aegis: Agreed, Snyder's influence at DC is the only thing keeping Duke and Harper remotely relevant. Aside from Outsiders and the Batman Gotham Knights digital series, Duke has no presence in current comics. As much as I dislike TBWL and Punchline and find them overrated, there's at least something which gives these characters their fans. Hell Punchline has been around for less than a year and has more fans than Duke.

Speaking of Damian, what do you think of the rumours that Damian will give up the Robin mantle?

I vaguely recall some scenes from Tynion's Tec run where Harper may have talked to Cass so you're probably right that that's where she'll end up. Duke will be out of place in the Robins though.

If Steph eventually became Batgirl, Barbara becomes Oracle (which she doesn't have to be crippled to do so) and Cass assumes her Black Bat title, that would give everyone their own niche.

@entropy_aegis: I shouldn't be surprised that Tynion has more plans for Duke but Harper has been irrelevant in the Bat Family for years. I don't see how Harper can possibly fit into the current status quo when the Bat Family is already quite large as it is. There's not enough space for her to include her on top of more popular Bat family characters who are supposedly being folded back into the Batman line after Joker War like Damian, Tim, Dick and Jason.

Also I now realise why the Super Sons of Tomorrow crossover felt so forced and out of place in the Superman and Teen Titans comics. It was editorially mandated to get rid of adult future Tim as opposed to Tynion's original plans for that version of Tim. No wonder it's one of the weakest of Tomasi/Gleason's arcs.

Still, Tynion will win points with Cass fans who want her back as Batgirl.

@muhdsyarif: ENW is a Dragon level cadre so it's not exactly a bad showing to lose to that thing. CE doing better than Iaian is a good showing but Shigi's Decay coupled with the extra Quriks stored in All For One makes CE a bad match up for CE IMO. And Brave Giant in the redraws got significantly depowered so that doesn't give him the win either.

Metal Bat blows his head off. His output gets stronger the more damage he takes, while Midoriya takes damage the more output he delivers.

Metal Bat will be involved in the finale of the Monster Association arc so he may be getting more impressive feats as well in the fullness of time.

Team wins but not without taking several casualties. Several of them could be one shotted by Hulk's thunderclaps if he can use them. Overall, there are too many bodies with high enough stats to overwhelm Hulk through numbers.
