*DC's Rebirth JLA/Watchmen event, #6 of 7, last pages:

Doctor Manhattan disintegrates a downed Superman...but nothing happens. When the blue light clears, someone stands between them, chowing a carrot.

And then Batman's secret-weapon, final-plan savior turns out to be Bugs Bunny. Cliffhanger.

Also, in another separate idea that also reads like fever dream babbling, this fun little mini. Check it!

Final page, splash panel: "What's Up, Doc?" )

"It's one thing to stand up for the right thing, and it's another thing to teach your kid to stand up for the right thing. It's harder. They see through, they know the truth, they're there all the time. They ask hard questions. And it makes you examine your own self. I know as a father, I think about that all the time, about what our kids will think of us, and how we always have this little person watching.

For Superman, you would think that would come easily or naturally, but part of what we're exploring is that although he's not technically human, he actually is human like us. Being a dad isn't a superpower. He's a dad just like everybody else. He's trying to figure this out, just like anybody else.

Whether you've had a dad or been a father, you can probably understand or relate.

"What Pat and I loved doing on Batman and Robin, we want to do it here, with Superman and Jonathan, but explore the father-son dynamic from a whole different angle, because Bruce and Clark are very different people. And Damian and Jonathan are incredibly different characters.

So we've got a story that's right in our wheelhouse now, to explore the father-son relationship for this first arc.

And as Pat said, we're really playing with it from the eyes of a child, looking up at a father, who is someone he loves, but at the same time is a superhero, is an incredibly powerful being. And we'll be showing how Jonathan deals with that.

WORLD'S FINEST was a ten issue miniseries that covered Batman and Superman's friendship over ten years in the post-Crisis post-Zero Hour DC Universe. For most of that decade, they thought their refusal to work together resulted in an innocent man dying. They find out they were wrong.

In 1940 Jerry Siegel produced a script for a Superman story that would have totally changed the character's status-quo not only would it introduce is first real weakness (K-metal), but it would have changed his relationship with Lois Lane forever. The story was drawn up but canned, possibly due to pressure from the producer of the Radio Drama (but no one is sure for certain). Only bits and pieces survived until Mark Waid found the original script in the DC Archives, he re-typed the script and eventually a version was produced online using the script and as much of the 1940s art that has survived.

Now let us take a look at a few pages of "The K-Metal from Krypton,"
