Dan Didio, Co-Publisher of DC Comics, began MegaCon's Saturday panel about the New 52 by thanking all of the fans who came to the panel, which began at 10:30am. He then introduced the panel guests: Executive Editor Eddie Berganza, writer of All-Star Western and The Ray Jimmy Palmiotti, Batman artist Greg Capulo, writer of New Guardians Tony Bedard and writer and artist of Green Arrow and Superman Dan Jurgens.

Didio then asked Jurgens about his return to Superman. Jurgens began by saying that when he had talked with George Pérez, he was surprised when George said, "I can't believe I need reference to draw Superman." After beginning his run on the title, Jurgens said, "I can't believe I need reference to draw Superman." His first issue will be issue seven, with Keith Giffen as co-writer and Jesus Merino as inker, who Dan said was doing a knockout job on the art. The creative team's goal is to tell some wide open Superman stories that are fitting for the character, while doing some interesting for Clark and Jimmy. As for what's in store for Clark and Jimmy, Dan gave one word, "bedbugs."
