The Big Blue Boy Scout has been having a tough time in the DCU lately, what with recent issues of Superman seeing his new super friend Ulysses turning out to be way more of a super dick than anyone could of guessed. So, that begs the question: how does a Man of Steel get over such betrayals? Why with a new suit and superpower of course!
Ol’ Supes hasn’t always had the robust skill set we all know and love. Up until 1941 he could only jump wicked high, not actually fly and we’d have to wait until 1949 for him to develop the ability to roast wienies with his eyes! In a recent ad from DC, it show Superman will be obtaining a new ability called ‘Super Flare’, which writer Geoff Johns’ is calling “definitely the most destructive power Superman has” and that its might will have repercussions.
How destructive can it reall….oh.
So Superman is now a walking nuke. Uh. So how about that new costume? Well, by new costume DC and artists Klaus Janson and John Romita Jr mean adding ‘cool’ finger-less gloves to the suit already established by Kenneth Rocafort.
Superman #38 hits shelves this week and will be the conclusion to the Men of Tomorrow arc. What do you think of Supes’ new power and snazzy gloves? Does he need a pullover too, you know, to complete the look? Tell us in the comments and on Twitter.
