Who is Supernova???[edit]

A fun thread to discuss the possible identity of the character. I believe that Devem, leader of the Superboy cult will be revealed as Supernova. This would reflect past behaviors of the character in his pre-crisis incarnations. -sharp962

Maybe...I'm hoping this will be a way for DC to bring back Kon-El, After all Nova was an alias Superman used.-Wakefencer

Maybe he is a future version of Booster Gold... a Booster Gold that went on to mature and obtained even more artifacts. I dunno if that goes against the DC rules of time travel or not. It is more like the Back to the Future rules of time travel, but it would be way cool if Supernova is actually him.

I say evidence is strong for Supernova being one of the Superman robots with a Phantom Zone projector built into his chest. Both are technologies readily available to Superman, who uses "we" a lot in refering to Supernova. A counter-argument against this theory asks why Superman wouldn't just use the robot just as Superman, instead of dressing him up. My speculation is that if Supes didn't know whether his powers would return, he'd rather not generate false hope. *shrugs* --El benito 17:39, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

"This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Supernova (comics) article." It's not a discussion thread to air your opinions about what might or might not happen in a future comic book storyline. 20:54, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
Yeah! What's the matter with you guys? Supernova is obviously the Eradicator. --Exvicious 18:40, 29 September 2006 (UTC)


Where are you getting the information that he has chronokinesis?--Wakefencer 02:53, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

HIs identity will be revealed in 52 #37. I've a guess as to who he is but this as stated isnt the place for that. I will say though that his powers appear to shrink things (as he says "send them away") Black arrow

It's really not a place for speculation of any kind. We should discuss ways to improve the article. Ace Class Shadow; My talk. 04:01, 14 January 2007 (UTC)


{{spoiler}} When Supernova's identity is revealed (Wed January 7), I think we should merge it to his true identity. In retrospect, it seems like a small part of this character's story.

Yes, I know who it is. No, I will not say. (But it's not the Atom.) --Exvicious (talk contribs) @ 03:10, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Great grammar; very civil ending. So, you're withholding information...or just bullshitting. That's nice...either way. Anyway, Supernova may not necessarily be one person or a pre-existing character. More importantly, let's not count our ducks before they're hatched.
I was just commenting on the people who keep asking who Supernova is on the talk page. But I'll edit my comment, since it offends you.
I wasn't "withholding information," I didn't want to post a spoiler before the comic was released. I guess that doesn't matter anymore because someone posted it below. And if you're wondering about the validity of it, it's true, subscribers get their comics today. So, all the ducks are hatched or whatever. When the comic comes out, I think it should be merged with Booster's article, considering the article length. --Exvicious (talk contribs) @ 07:19, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
If you plan on keeping this information out until Wednesday, you may want to remove it from the Booster Gold and Rip Hunter entries as well. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 19:25, 16 January 2007 (UTC).
Well, I edited my comment, but I'm not the one who first added it (see below). It's being added by anom IPs, so I'm pretty sure it's a revert war waiting to happen. Since it comes out tomorrow, I won't bother. --Exvicious (talk contribs) @ 20:00, 16 January 2007 (UTC)


I repeat, SPOILERS.

Supernova is Booster Gold, as revealed in 52 #37. Should this be added to the article or merged? — Preceding unsigned comment added by PhilShady (talkcontribs) 03:23, January 16, 2007

I don't even know what to say here... Gees... Ace Class Shadow; My talk. 06:15, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
I see this info (and the powers info) was added to the article and removed several times, why? It is correct. As of the issue available 1/15/07, it is revealed and a full explanation of both powers and reasons is monologued by the character of Booster Gold/Supernova.
Probably just because it's not officially out yet. Just wait one more day, no big. I guess they just want to make sure the info is accurate. --Semidelicious 23:01, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Recreating the page[edit]

Similiar to what happened with Ronin, I've recreated the page now that more than one person has used the Supernova identity. --DrBat 01:08, 11 July 2007 (UTC)


More spoilers


Is it me or does Supernova's logo look suspiciously like the Starbrand? Matthewbrownny (talk) 19:20, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

In All New Booster Gold 4, it's revealed that Supernova is Booster Gold's father. (Really.) He also has a support unit named Maximilion, which appears to be a more advanced version of Skeets. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:41, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Article needs a complete rewrite[edit]

This article needs a complete re-write, it fails to treat this character as an object of the narrative. I will have a go later --Allemandtando (talk) 10:21, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
