New York Comic Con '08: day 1

Friday was the DC Nation panel at the New York Comic Con.

Via Newsarama:

DiDio then said they've decided to do something "just for this group" in the panel room. He then asked the crowd who read 52 and was familiar with Rip Hunter and the Time Lords, leading him to say he's going to debut the "DC Nation Time Lords." A board, like Rip Hunter's in 52, came on the screen for 15 seconds with several cryptic sayings like "I am Batman?"

A fan asked if, in current DC continuity, Clark Kent wore a suit flying around Smallville, as Superboy - Johns said it'll be addressed and wait and see.

Over at Legion World, they point out that one of the things on the board is "1,000 / 3 = 1", suggesting that a single Legion will form out of the Legion of Three Worlds.

Newsarama also has some video interviews with Dan DiDio. In this one, he talks about Final Crisis, Legion of Three Worlds, & DCU #0.

CBR doesn't really have that much to add:
How big a part will Superman-Prime play in Final Crisis? "He goes into the 31st century in Legion of Three Worlds... and he kind of does his thing," Johns remarked.

Here's what's going on at the rest of the convention:
