TheRationalNerd - 6/27/2014, 8:33 PM
Ok, where's the guy who clowned the idea of a Black Superman when we had our discussion? lol
Snotzo - 6/27/2014, 8:39 PM

Duh duh duhhhhh

ColonelKilgore - 6/27/2014, 8:44 PM
A black Superman? People are gonna have the shitfits.
Enphlieuwince - 6/27/2014, 8:44 PM
Outstanding... I like the color scheme of that suit too.
Enphlieuwince - 6/27/2014, 8:46 PM
Colonel Let them shit away...
ColonelKilgore - 6/27/2014, 8:46 PM
Also @wallhead

We almost had Nick Cage play Superman. I'm sure you would be a better choice.
Mrsinister - 6/27/2014, 8:47 PM
This is such a good comic! I just got caught up and couldn't beeline all of twists
TheBrotherhood - 6/27/2014, 8:53 PM
New 52 - 5 = 2 + Earth = Earth 2
alamborn19 - 6/27/2014, 8:58 PM
wow an ultimate comics ripoff how original like how the plot of dark knight rises was stolen from a JLU episode
Enphlieuwince - 6/27/2014, 8:58 PM
This is going to drive the Forced Diversity Resistance insane though... Lmao!
typicalfanboy - 6/27/2014, 8:59 PM
i hope his secret identity is that of j'dinkalage morgoone
Mrsinister - 6/27/2014, 8:59 PM
@alam you clearly have no idea what you're talking about.

KINGPEN266 That's more like a job for '02 Dame Dash.
themidnightking - 6/27/2014, 9:10 PM
It's awesome to see more diversity in comic books!
TheOverlord - 6/27/2014, 9:13 PM
Love what they're doing w earth2 — Black Superman FTW
SidDaAstroSloth - 6/27/2014, 9:22 PM
Black Supes looks pretty Snazzy.

Earth 2 Flash needs a makeover though.
KINGPEN266 - 6/27/2014, 9:26 PM
ENPHLIEUWINCE, lmao he do look like him!
Enphlieuwince - 6/27/2014, 9:27 PM
Too bad this new guy will likely never be adapted anytime before Michael Ealy is old and decrepit (might as well had stopped this sentence at "adapted"). This role had his name written all over it. Dude got that wholesome heroic look and blue eyes. He's a little short but nothing a little movie magic couldn't fix. With some weight training, he would've been awesome. I would like to see him in a superhero role, but, until now, I couldn't think of anything suitable for him.

Enphlieuwince - 6/27/2014, 9:28 PM
KING Don't he though? Lol...
Enphlieuwince - 6/27/2014, 9:30 PM
Well good ppl, I bid you goodnight. You stay classy,
KINGPEN266 - 6/27/2014, 9:31 PM
i like the mike early choice perfect type casting
edge13 - 6/27/2014, 11:10 PM
the blue&white dominant suit remind me of Blue Marvel,which is also the 'black superman' of Marvel Universe :p
Braveandthebold - 6/27/2014, 11:22 PM
"A black Superman? People are gonna have the shitfits.

Why ? Superman of Earth 23 Calvin Ellis/Clark Kent(who is president of America as Calvin)is black. A there is Sunshine Superman who is also Black so many Supermen, I love them all except for Man of Steel Superman from the movie.
Braveandthebold - 6/27/2014, 11:23 PM

Actually in Earth 23, Superman is black but Lex isn't and everyone thinks Lex is a racist because he hates Superman, but that's notwhy he hates him.
WombRaider - 6/28/2014, 12:13 AM
i actually love that suit....for some reason, that suit makes me think it should be an aged old man superman kingdom come type suit....

anyone else agree?
WombRaider - 6/28/2014, 12:14 AM
although...he has no genitals..
HavocPrime - 6/28/2014, 12:38 AM
This series has been surprisingly good, but the only thing I hate is the long wait between issues.
Prime - 6/28/2014, 12:49 AM
Can't we just get an Asian or Latino Superman? I really would like to see that.
Kang - 6/28/2014, 1:31 AM
I [frick]ing love this series!
loki668 - 6/28/2014, 2:35 AM
This just in: Netman just spontaneously combusted.
jimoakley666 - 6/28/2014, 3:25 AM
That 'Earth 2' logo is terrible. Urgh. Emboss and gradient with an outer glow? Surely this was created by the work-experience kid (who's just started playing with photoshop) in all of a minute. And I'll bet he sat back in his chair, smiled and said "nailed it!)

Awful bit of design.
jimoakley666 - 6/28/2014, 3:30 AM
@Womb - Yeah. Not even a camel-toe. So he hasn't even got a vagina under there. Very bizarre 'grasp' of anatomy.
Floke - 6/28/2014, 4:04 AM
Shouldn't "the other" be Yango, the super ape? He was sent from Krypton too right? Or is that no longer canon?
ColonelKilgore - 6/28/2014, 4:28 AM

I figured people would freak out like they did over Human Torch.

I was wrong.
BATMANx - 6/28/2014, 4:50 AM
Great Job Dc Comics. This is a Great story. this would make a good movie
