Also, the series has been apparently been upgraded from mini-series to ongoing status. Huh.

Just from these pages, it seemed more like he was condemning Night Fox for having an affair with his partner behind his wife's back, which of course is totally hypocritical (oh, superdickery!) if he's hiding a relationship with an ex-archenemy from the public.

I don't know if you're stating your opinion, or explaining Night Fox's, but it's really not hypocritical at all. If Night Fox's strategy for staying in the closet was just to remain publicly single (or Sovereign was married to one woman, but carrying on a relationship with Helen behind her back), then there'd be a similarity between the two situations, and Sovereign'd be a hypocrite - but, he's just not publicly admitting to his wife's former identity, not hurting someone else to do so.

Might depend on if she's reformed and/or has paid for the crimes she did commit in her villainous days.

That would be morally dubious but I still don't think it'd make him a hypocrite for him to consider Fox's adultery a moral failing, and not his own tolerance of his wife's goings on. Also, if I'm remembering the bits posted from the first issue correctly, she complains about not being able to associate with her old friends because that would violate her parole, so I'm assuming she's reformed. So, whatever complaints Night Fox might have against Sovereign, I'm not seeing a valid one concerning the wife.

I think it also depends on what kind of nemesis she was and how they've covered it up. If we're talking someone akin to Catwoman, then I'd say that's a different order of problem from someone akin to, say, Doomsday or Parasite.
