Yara Flor, Future state Wonder Woman is in the Fortress of Solitude checking on Jon after a disastrous reunion. As the two talk, Jon suddenly runs off, Wonder Woman follows him and discovers his secret: while on a mission in 31S t century with the Legion of Superheroes, Jon discovered the planet Tsercalon. The planet was being sucked into a black hole’s event horizon, and to save them, Jon had Ryan Choi (the Atom) invent a weapon that overfills the black hole, causing it to eject matter, including the planet. Unfortunately, the planet is still unable to fully escape gravitational pull and is at risk of regressing every day. To prevent this from happening, Jon travels through an interdimensional portal to the planet and fires the gun every day before 10:30 a.m., saving the planet from destruction for one more day. Wonder Woman is in awe of this, and asks Jon when was the last time he took a day off.
While Wonder Woman’s comment was mostly frivolous, it points to a serious character trait in Jon: that he must save everyone, so much so that he takes a minute out of his day every day to prevent the planet itself from being destroyed. The question is: how much longer can Jon take this? The planet’s continued existence proves that Jon has managed to save it every day, but what happens if Jon is called and he is unable to access the teleportation device in the Fortress? With no one around to do what Jon does, the planet would face certain destruction, how could that affect it? Future state has hinted at a dark destiny for Jon, could these be the beginnings of his destiny?
Whatever the case, show the lengths Superman he will go to save as many people as possible, even if that could spell doom for him.
