Superman: "Then we need to shine brighter."

Aaand back to form. They really should stick this book to arcs like these where moments like this can thrive.

Batman's really acting the jerk. "Your son should be way stronger, something's wrong," is sufficient. Calling a kid a threat in front of the kid (or, at all, really, but especially there)... c'mon, Bruce, you're better than that.

More like a potential threat, especially if whatever is holding him back suddenly stops. I think Batman's just trying to show there's an aspect of urgency to this that needs to be figured out before we have another dead cat on our hands.

Even so, "Your kid is a potential threat," is not cool. That's 'give the kid a neurosis about his powers' type talk.

"This is something we need to look into," would be more reasonable.

Yeah. Even leaving aside the still ambiguous nature of how Clark has/hasn't got more history with the nu52 peoples...

Bruce is way more a jerk here that is justified. "I found something troubling in your son's results. I thought you should know, and I want to help," would go a lot farther. ESPECIALLY since Bruce went through something VERY similar when Damian suddenly developed super-powers after his resurrection.

I understand some people like the two antagonistic with each other, but there's still good and bad ways to handle it, and this is a good example of a bad way. I'd even forgotten about the Damian thing!

I've always thought the decision to make Batman more antagonistic towards other heroes after decades of being on friendly terms (even well into the Bronze Age when his 66-ness was being shed) was a terrible one.

Quite. I think it's worked on occasion, but too often it's devolved into the characters just acting out of character for the sake of conflict, or the whole "Power = bad," thing from Batman's side.... which is dumb. It's dumb when there's only one Superman level being (in which case it's an equation to try and poke Superman into being bad), and it's far more dumb in a world with multiple (CM/Shazam, Martian Manhunter, Apollo, and Wonder Woman... of which Wonder Woman is probably the worst threat by this logic because she lacks weaknesses unlike Superman, but on the whole they all counterbalance each other).

IF anything, it vastly undermines Batman's status as the World's Greatest Detective. Because if he was half as good as he said he was, he'd recognize these were good, well-meaning people who aren't going to suddenly declare themselves Emperor of Earth.

'Xactly. And "But he *could* declare himself Emperor of Earth!" is child's logic. Just makes him look bad.

Compare all the times they've fought alien invasions, godlike aliens, and such and deduced the hostile force really has a different motive they can fulfill removing the name for the invasion and such.

Why would a human-kryptonian hybrid be stronger than a kryptonian or a human? One would think his power would be more in the middle, and he'd be more resistent to Kryptonite.


But hey, this is Batman, which means he knows everything, even potential alien-human hybrid genetics, which even a human geneticist would hesitate to comment on.

Fun fact: I've read a DBZ theory that states that half-saiyans are more powerful because of the adrenal glands that inherit from their human parents...or something like that.

Same thing with Aquaman, apparently.

I think the assumption is that the powers are part of the dominant Kryptonian genes, while Jon's human genes potentially contain a dormant metagene that might give him even more power.

Otherwise, it's the same logic as to why Gohan has greater potential then his father Goku.

You know, the revelation about Jon really isn't all that different from what they did when Kara first came back. It didn't amount to anything in the long run then, so I don't see it really mattering now.

I thinks its to explain his "power curve".

IIRC Superman didn't come into his full abilities until well into his 20's. This way the writer can give Jon as many or as few powers as they want, when they want, and have their power be the extent they want.

The hybrid's are more powerful thing also opens the door for Jon to develop new or different power and plants the seed of him having the potential to surpass his father. Also means other hybrids(maybe potential villains) have an excuse to be stupid strong even if they only recently are created.

I like the idea.

It does make Jon seem similar to Gohan. Since Gohan had crazy potential because he was a human/Saiyan hybrid.

Sigh. Just like I feared: there's just not enough info in this title's last 3 issues to make them stand on their own without reading Action Comics. That's why I have a much bigger problem with small crossovers than events. And DC makes them even harder to follow due to the lack of recap pages.
