Now for the fun part! The story is interrupted by an interlude that takes us to Boston where an argument is in progress. Are Superman and Wonder Woman really in a relationship? Whether it’s true or not, The Boston Reporter is going to cover it.

The back of the newspaper features a fun little easter egg. “Mike Carlin revealed as Potts Clone” referring to Mike Carlin and Carl Potts and “Karen B: I had Swamp Thing’s baby!” I’m assuming Karen B is Karen Berger.

Action Comics #600 was released almost 4 months before Swamp Thing #76 L’Adoration de la Terre, which tells the tale of Tefé Holland’s conception. I don’t recall reading anything about it but, I wouldn’t be surprised if the news headline acted as a sneak peek for the upcoming Swamp Thing issue/plot line.

That is not a happy looking swamp baby.
