    You're a week behind. 32 came out today. I think Supernova is Booster from the future.

    SuperNova is Batman. Thats my prediction anyway, Im probably wrong. At one time, I thought it was lex luthor, then I thought it was clark..

    So. I'm hoping Im right with Batman.

    52 has in my opinion been pretty damn good. Well... Its been more good then Bad.

    I still think it's Booster.

    And at this point, Ralph Dibny's storyline is the one that interests me most. Steel is starting to not suck, though.

    I'm very curious to see how World War 3 will come about.

    Didn't keep up with it mostly for wallet's sake, but I try to see scanned excerpts where I can. :D  Waiting for a TPB or summat.

    I have no idea who Supernova is, though Future Booster's the theory I like the most.

    did anyone read the thing they do with the editor last week? They implied supernova could be more then one person. So that got me thinking, what happened to booster's relative from the present? And could it be booster and his relative are both supernova? I know it's bit out there and all but given some of the things going on in this book almost anything is possible.

    "Future Booster" seems a little too obvious for Supernova and I'm not sure how that lines up with "Superman being out of the picture...key". Some of the speculation I've seen for Supernova's identity:

    - He's a Superman robot with an embedded Phantom Zone projector, explaining the teleportation. But Supernova seems to have too much personality to be a robot.
    - He's the Eradicator. The Eradicator was a 'device' and might be more comfortable without Superman around, but his powers don't seem to fit.

    My completely off-the-wall speculation: Supernova is Ray Palmer. He's experienced (noted by Clark Kent) and he knows Ralph Dibny (Supernova and Ralph were, not exactly chummy, but spoke like they had previous long-standing knowledge of each other). The powers could theoretically be explained by Palmer's white dwarf star matter shrinking lens. As the Atom, Ray could adjust his mass/density to allow him to glide on air currents (taking that from the Atom's wikipedia article), so that would explain the flight power...and the 'white dwarf star matter' could explain the light Supernova emits. As for Supernova's teleportation abilities, when the Atom shrinks down, he's been shown to be able to ride light or electron streams. Suppose Ray Palmer found a way to remove the original (explosive) side effect of the lens; he could send out a flash of light, shrink himself and other people down, ride the photons to another location and re-enlarge. Supernova's "disintegration" power could be explained by just using the lens to shrink something down to a subatomic level. In addition, Ray Palmer is still missing-in-action One Year Later. I know this theory probably has a lot of holes though (why did Superman need to be out of the picture, why the Luthor fixation, etc), but just speculation.

    thats a good possibility...but i dunno. i wonder when we will find out...my guess is issue 47....and isnt ray palmer in the all new atom? i havent read it in a few months, but im pretty sure he was in at least one issue, kinda seeming like a badguy...talking about the new atom stealing his work...maybe i should flip through those while im at work tonight...

    and twin twist..im not smoking, its just a random side effect of being me

    I kinda missed like 4-8 issues, but I did pick up issue #31. I like Ralph's quest, Supernova's mysterious identity, but I'm not too keen on the Question being ill and out of action.

    Though, looking at the previews, I'm defnitely going to look forward to the return of blood thirsty Black Adam.:D
