At the end of the New 52, Superman died. Rebirth begins with multiple new Super*something*s.

Superman - Lex Luthor
Superwoman
Super-Man
Superman - DCU Kal-El

I won't go into spoiler territory (because I'm not up to date myself), but these are the four beings looking to take on the responsibilities of the now-deceased Superman.

Just like when Superman died in the DCU, there are four beings claiming the mantle. One wearing a suit of armour, one who clearly isn't him, a younger one and the one that might be him but could also not be.

I'm really curious how this will play out, and whether Coast City will be destroyed again...

I hadn't made that connection before, but you're right, they do fit the four that came before - and we've got a Superboy as well now.

Hmmmmm

And do not forget that:
There is the Eradicator on the pages of Superman & Action, the cyborg Superman on the pages of Supergirl, Steel on the pages of Superwoman.

Steel got a shout out in last weeks Batman which made me really happy for some reason. :)

Good pickup of the similarity to the four Supermen. We shall wait and see.

I don't think Eradicator was in the New 52, but Cyborg Superman and Steel were pre-existing at least.

Yes, there was no Eradicator in the New 52.
