ARE YOU REAAADDDDDYYY?????
Sunday, October 28th at 5pmET/4pmCT G2Factor will discuss SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 #21 by Bryan Q. Miller and Superman #13 by Scott Lobdell. Two very different Clark Kents and Supermen.
Smallville Season 11 should prove exciting as we’ll see what happens to a Kryptonite compromised Superman and how he survives with the help of Batman and the love of his life, Lois Lane.
Superman #13 gave us the first Clark Kent/Superman in Metropolis story by Scott Lobdell. He plotted Superman Annual #1. Is there a difference between the two Clarks in these two books, too?
Grant Morrison will be putting 5 years of story in Action #15 through #17. Morrison stated there would be a death of Superman story involved in his last arc.
While watching Andy Diggle interviews during NYCC, found out this information:
“I very much want to balance the extremely epic, massive-scale action heroics with the human side of Kal-El and Clark Kent too. I would like to see him explored a little bit more. And I would like to see his relationship with Lois Lane explored a little bit more in the New 52.”
”I think that he feels a bit like a fish out of water, and I think Diana feels the same way, so to a degree, they feel like kindred spirits, which is not quite the same as his relationship with Lois.”
Black suit in Superman #0 appears in Action #18 and the H’El on Earth storyline between the superbooks spins into another crossover involving Action also.
This last clue is interesting as we saw this symbol in Superman #7:
It’s also significant that Helspont had an arc in the Superman book and told Clark in the Superman Annual #1, he knew Jor-El. In Superman #0 we see Kal-El on Krypton (dressed in black) narrating the story of his parents and the discovery they were expecting him. We saw the black suit again in Action #18 on Tony Daniel’s cover. A Daemonite horn also appeared in Superman #0 as it did in Superman #1. Helspont could be creating an alternate reality for Superman to exist in.
Could Superman, Supergirl, Superboy, and Action be going from H’El to Helspont? Will this possible crossover lead to the bigger crossover in the Justice League, Justice League of America and possibly Justice League Dark known as the Trinity War?
Here’s the reason why we ask that question:
This appeared in the Justice League 6 backstory:
And more recently in the backstory of Justice League #13 the intro to Justice League of America:
