Johns on "New Krypton"

I talked this morning with Geoff Johns, writer of "Action Comics," about the upcoming New Krypton story line that will encompass "Action," "Superman" and "Supergirl." The story, feature the sudden appearance of 100,000 Kryptonians on Earth, spins largely out of the current Braniac story line in "Action."

So Superman will no longer be the last son of Krypton. Far from it, in fact. So does that make less notable, less distinctive?

"If anything, it's going to make him more distinctive," Johns said. Just because you're from Krypton, just because you can fly, doesn't make you Superman, he said. The story will contrast Superman, and his Earth upbringing, against all these other Kryptonians.

Look for more on New Krypton in a future Comics Fan.

I like this idea, it sounds kind of cool.

It certainly can create some interesting twists and turns.
