The Identity Of Mr Oz Revealed In Action Comics #987- But Do You Believe It? (SPOILERS)

This article contains spoilers for Action Comics #987 by Dan Jurgens, Viktor Bogdanovic, Jonathan Glapion, Jay Leisten and Mike Spicer, Supergirl #13 by Steve Orlando, Robson Rocha, Daniel Henriques and Michael Atiyeh and Detective Comics #964 by James Tynion IV, Christopher Sebela, Carmen Carnero and Ulises Arreola.

The word starts to spread in Detective Comics about the status of Tim Drake, believed slaughtered, instead kidnapped by Mr Oz…

Something that also occurs in Supergirl, with her father Zor-El kidnapped by Mr Oz, and joining the rest of the captured team. Or not…

And revealing himself as someone who may be known to Supergirl’s father, with his new name. ¬†But yes, after a series of trials that Superman undergoes in Action Comics, intended to show him the pointlessness of his life against a humanity that shows no sign of changing, and remaining on the edge of self-destruction, we get the reveal we may have been expecting from previous¬†images and teasers released by DC Comics,

“Clark, I Am Your Father…”

With the details of his survival to be revealed in issues to come, with the involvement of Dr Manhattan being strongly suspected ahead of the release of Doomsday Clock. The only thing is, is it actually Jor-El? Or Roz-Em masquerading as Jor-El, as he masqueraded as Superman all those years ago in Adventure Comics, donning the garb and technology of technowizard Amos Amoswell who rescued him from the Phantom Zone? And now taking his revenge?

Yes, yes, I am still banging on about it… what do you reckon?
