    Looks like the parallel earths will be playing a large part.

    Points of interest:

    - Kingdom Come Superman with Eradicator's powers? Don't tell me Superman in Kingdom Come is actually the Eradicator?
    - Sinestro Corps' Cyborg Superman (really wish he'd get a new name)
    - Resurrection Suit Superman or Emperor Joker Fugitive Superman talking to the other two Supermen
    - Mary Marvel turns to the dark side courtesy of Granny Goodness and Eclipso
    - the broken skiis of The Black Racer
    - talk about an unholy alliance - The Penguin, Pied Piper and Desaad
    - Joker influencing Catwoman?
    - J'onn with a bloody knife
    - Darkseid's fallen statue
    - Lex with bloody hands and his Superfriends-era costume, complete with disco collar
    - Metropolis in flames
    - Is that the Crime Bible?
    - Superman's cape, Batman's cowl and Wonder Woman's sword from the cover of 52 #1
    - a broken green arrow (Connor's or Ollie's?)
    - an Amazon shield
    - I don't know what that is to the right of Lex (his left) or that box over by the skiis

    Countdown has been pretty 'bleh', minus the Mary Marvel stuff. I've really become interested in her character since Countdown started, where before I couldn't give two shits about her.

    That's gotta be Superman from Emperor Joker, cause the resurrection suit didn't have a cape, and he is sans mullet. But that never stopped anyone from changing things.

    EDIT: Looking again, he does have a bit of a mullet, so I could be wrong. But I still think it's the Emperor Joker Superman. The thing on theright of Lex looks like Barda's weapon and the box by the Black Racers skis could be a Father Box. I wonder if that is Dassad with the Penguin, kinda looks like Destiny. However I think they like to keep those characters in Vertigo territory. I wonder if Kingdom Come Superman has Atomic Knight powers cause of the atom symbol on his hand.

    Man, I just dropped Countdown...don't tell me the Cyborg's going to show up in it and I'll have to start buying it again.

    - The high-res image shows an "atomic" symbol on the back of KC Superman's hand; maybe some connection to Firestorm or Captain Atom?
    - As leader of the Manhunters, Henshaw was called 'Grandmaster' numerous times during the "Revenge of the Green Lanterns" arc. I was kind of hoping they'd start using that codename for him permanently, but it doesn't seem to have stuck.

    Destiny would have his book chained to one of his arms, though. I'm pretty sure it's Desaad...although it might be Time Trapper (I seem to remember him having a similar outfit and arm bandages way back in Zero Hour).

    You mean the Trickster, Piper's not in the picture at all. The Trickster is holding on to Piper's flute though. What that means, considering Piper's sexual orientation is anyone's guess. I definitely say that is Desaad, with the New gods angle Countdown seems to be going with, his appearance makes sense. Anyway, the person in the picture seems too happy to be either the Time trapper or Destiny.

    Dammit, the Countdown teaser images always seem so interesting. Sadly the same can't be said of the series so far. I am still trying to hang on to it though.

    Yeah, I forgot about the book. Your right htough it could be the Time Trapper. Dasaad is usually portrayed as much shorter and looks more whithered.
