I don't know if you are aware of this or not, but it's not just Superman and Action Comics that is rebooting. It's the entire DC Universe. So, that's where the real "controversy" comes in.

A lot of people feel DC is shaking things up just to shake things up, and there is no real thought going into how or why this is all happening. People are bent out of shape about new costumes and modified origins, and whether or not Obscure Comic Book Issue 247 is going to be included in this new continuity.

I admit I'm not much of a DC fan outside of the recent Green Lantern stuff and the highlights of Batman comics over the years. But, I don't have any problem whatsoever with this shake up. It's like Marvel's Ultimate line (which has put out some of my favorite comics ever), but for the whole universe. And, knowing DC's history of CRISIS EVENTS (~!!), things what were lost will eventually be brought back, New Superman will meet Old Superman, maybe they will swap Lois's or something, and comics will go on as always.
