As everyone knows by now, DC is relaunching its entire universe with new titles on Sept. 1. That includes The Big Man himself, in Action Comics #1 and Superman #1. Some of the changes, according to Newsarama.com:
- Clark Kent and Lois Lane, married in the comics since 1996, are no longer a couple.
- Ma and Pa Kent are dead.
- A new costume.
- A villain more powerful than Superman.
- And maybe the biggest of all:
Additionally, Superman's alien origins will be emphasized in a big way, with the character described as "more Kal-El from the planet Krypton than Clark Kent from Kansas." Superman's deep connection to his Kryptonian heritage also explains his new costume, as seen on the cover of Superman #1. It's "ceremonial armor" from his home planet, with the traditional red trunks abandoned.Thanks to The Knights87 for the tip.
