- Lex Luthor
- Steel (classic looking John Henry Irons)
- Ultrawoman (the shadowed character?)
- Strange Visitor (the fiery character in the white electric Superman/woman suit; see pre-Flashpoint iteration on the right)
- Traci Thirteen / Girl 13
- New Power Girl or Steel’s sister? (the female beside Traci Thirteen, but this is my least confident identity pick)

The big spoiler here, that seems to reveal the end of the current Superman family comic books spanning event “The Final Days of Superman” aka “Super League” involves who I identify as Strange Vistor; the fiery character in the white Superman/woman costume.
The character sure looks like it gained its powers from the fiery Superman fraud tormenting DC Comics’ New 52 Trinity during the arc. I had assumed the fiery Superman would transfer his powers to imbue the New 52’s Lois Lane ti become Superwoman, but it looks she gets her powers differently.
