‘Superman Reborn’ Aftermath Speculation

With Action Comics #976 being released, so ends the Superman Reborn arc. The adventures of Clark Kent and his family have undoubtedly been some of the strongest books to come out of DC Rebirth thus far. It seems now the Kent family can officially settle in thanks to the Superman Reborn aftermath.

**Major Spoilers Lie Ahead**

Mxyzptlk tore the Kent family apart and left it up to Jon to fix them. Through the sheer power of love, Jon helped his parents merge their Pre-52 selves with their New 52 selves and solidified the Rebirth Lois & Clark.

What does this mean for the Kents going forward? This could allow them to come out of hiding for the most part. Lois and Clark can both work for the Daily Planet without that pesky fake Clark roaming around. Does that mean their marriage is public?

Looking at the beautiful page above, it appears that not only is their marriage public, but Jon’s existence as well. At least Perry and Jimmy know about Jon Kent. Which is a pretty significant change for Superman comics given that the family’s secrecy was a major element thus far.

This also allows them to drop their fake name, going public as the Kents. It’ll be interesting to see how writers Dan Jurgens (Action Comics) and Peter J. Tomasi (Superman) put these puzzle pieces together moving forward.

With all these new questions, at least one thing is for certain. By merging the two Supermen together, and being reborn into the true Superman of DC Rebirth, we got a new costume. Clark’s new duds are more of a return to former glory. Ditching the blue boots and weird belt, Superman looks more traditional than ever. All he’s missing is the red underwear!
