DC REBIRTH: The Cover For ACTION COMICS #988 May Spoil Mr. Oz's Identity

Fans of DC Rebirth have been fervently speculating about Mr. Oz's true identity for months. Is he Ozymandias, another character from the Watchmen universe or someone who hails from the DC universe?

Th two-part Action Comics miniseries from Dan Jurgens, Ryan Sook and Viktor Bogdanovic promises to reveal the identity of Mr. Oz to DC Rebirth fans but advance solicitations for the series may spoil the mystery before the issues are released this September.

Mr. Oz, the mysterious figure who has abducted Tim Drake, Doomsday and more has at times helped various DC heroes and at others, proved a deadly adversary.  Just how is he connected to Doctor Manhattan and what is his role in the current fractured state of the DC universe? 

Many fans assumed that Oz was short for Ozymandias, Doctor Manhattan's fellow Watchmen, but a lenticular cover for Action Comics #988 [via Bleeding Cool] appears to reveal that he's Superman's biological father, Jor-El- abducted by Doctor Manhattan just seconds before Krypton's destruction.

If you've been keeping up with the mystery of "The Button" and the ever advancing DC Universe showdown with Doctor Manhattan, what do you think about this development? 



Previously at last month's SDCC, Geoff Johns teased that his Doomsday Clock event series would be about Superman, so Oz turning out to be Jor-El lines up.  The question now is from what continuity was this Jor-El abducted?
