Mon-el in January

Thanks to ajohns2012 on the Comicbloc boards for the tip. Look who's on the cover of Action Comics Annual #10, on sale in January. So now we have 21st and 31st century appearances of Mon-el. How many times does this guy have to get put into the Phantom Zone, anyway?

Newsarama's got the details on some of the books. In 52, it sounds like we see who Supernova really is in January. On the cover to Action Annual 10, we see what looks like Supernova and Mon-el. Any relation?

Written by Geoff Johns & Richard Donner
Art by Art Adams, Joe Kubert,
Pete Woods, Rags Morales, Kevin Maguire, Eric Wight and Tony Daniel
Cover by Adam Kubert & Joe Kubert
Variant cover by Gary Frank

Do you suppose they'll do something sensible like, say, have Superman mistake him for a relative, give him the name Mon-El, and toss him in the Zone?

If 'Supernova' turns out to be another uninspired non-Kryptonian-sounding alias for Lar Gand, I shall be annoyed.
