And yes, yes, it's obviously meant to be Jor-El as the revealed Mister Oz, unless you still buy into some cockamamie theory from Bleeding Cool that is in the Kryptonian super-criminal Roz-Em who received facial surgery to resemble Jor-El's twin brother and who has posed as Jor-El in the past, somehow tied in with the garb and background of the technomage Amos Amoswell who freed him. But you know Bleeding Cool, they'll say anything.

Because there is another conspiracy theory growing about the identity of Mister Oz that is not Osymandias, Jor-El or Roz-Em, and a little evidence that may support it. Needs a bit more research but I'll try and present it today.

But is it relevant to the following covers of Action Comics #990, the first by Nick Bradshaw and the second by Neil Edwards and Jay Leisten again.
