    Uh, DC.

    Hey, Superman Prime is one way around the Superboy thing. Better than just calling him Prime anyway. And it fits that he'd just upgrade himself cause he's such a whiny puss anyway.

    So the title is just changing for the book then? I read it wrong the first time and thought it meant there'd be two books. But I'm dumb a lot too. Maybe we'll see a cover soon then, the solicit just showed the big Anti-Monitor and Prime reveal page from the first special.
