Newsarama has a breakdown of DC's announcements regarding the future of Superman. (newsarama.com)

Pulled quotes from the article from DC:

"Clark Kent and Lois Lane not only unmarried, but not even together. Lois will have a new, as-yet unrevealed, boyfriend, and Clark will be a bachelor."

"more Kal-El from the planet Krypton than Clark Kent from Kansas."

"the reason Superman's embracing his alien nature is the loss of his adopted parents. Jonathan and Martha Kent are both dead in DC's post-Flashpoint continuity"

"new costume, as seen on the cover of Superman #1..."ceremonial armor" from his home planet"

"younger, more brooding" Man of Steel, who "can leap tall buildings but can't fly in space."

"there's a price to pay for being Superman"

Also, Superman T-shirt, jeans, and a short red cape. Except for the cape, Superman upon his debut dresses like any real world nerdy Superman fan on the street.

This sounds like Smallville, but without the bizarre intangibles of the actors and the production of Smallville that made Smallville so very fun despite being so very stupid.

Eccch. I'm all for changes if they're good meaningful changes, but this sounds like revisionist for the sake of being revisionist crap.

It sounds like street-level Supermanhood, like they're giving him the young Marvel hero treatment. But it does make Superboy sound unnecessary.

Is this Morrison writing Marvel Boy as Superman?

I am sure no matter how Smallville it gets, a show almost universally laughed at by Superman fans, the cult of Morrison will love it. This makes Brand New Day look like Sandman.

The comparisons to One More Day wouldn't really fit here. No one at DC editorial is indicating that this is going to be a "forever" kind of change. I think Clark and Lois wind up together within five years and all will be well again. This isn't like Marvel, where the editorial brass are dead-set against Peter and Mary Jane. The Clark/Lois separation sounds like it'll be temporary.

In other DCnU news, just read the ending to War of the Green Lanterns, which has finally convinced my stubborn self that this reboot isn't a reboot at all, but another "Superboy Prime punches a wall" kind of thing.

Nothing says "accessible" like a super-powered alien with absolutely no connections to any living human beings. I won't lie; it's not like I've been buying Superman prior to this point. But there's absolutely nothing about this reboot that I like.

I kinda like it - I wonder if there's going to be some kind of disconnect between the Kryptonian in Clark/Kal in a human world.

I haven't bought a comic book in literally YEARS - with exception of the occasional Archie comics that are just to pass the time on the bus, which eventually end up in the Sunday school room at church...but I'm definately interested in seeing how this comes along.

The issue I have has Winick's name on the cover and Nocenti's is nowhere to be found. Weird.
