War of the Supermen Just Announced!
 
DC's major announcement week continues as they announced War of the Supermen starting with War of the Supermen#O on Free Comic Book Day. It looks like this is the 2010 major event that Geoff Johns and DiDido have been referring to and building up to since Johns took over Action Comics three or four years ago. It seems those posters were right over in the Superman 2010 event thread I started a few weeks ago that the major event would be some kind of war...here's the link to the annoucment. Also on a side note I was very surprised to learn that a major supporing character is about to die

That promo artwork looks terrible. Why does Superman look like a zombie?

And I bet that character will be back in some convoluted way later down the line (Re: Sam Lane).

I just wish that Geoff was still writing at least one of the Superman books so he could help finish what he started, though... :(

Uh Geoff will be returning to Action Comics once Blackest Night is completed.

Funny how a major character that always dies is actually kind of a minor one. Plus Im sure that character will be back when DC for the 3rd or 4th time decides to have another universe reset.:rolleyes:

Is this the expected New Krypton versus Earth storyline?

Oh lord...I hope not. Blackest Night is veering too close to that to begin with!

There's a new Krypton, when did that happen?

Re: War of the Supermen Just Announced!
 
I'm inclined to say that yes this is the New Krypton Vs Earth...but the war of the supermen title suggests that maybe a Kryptonian civil war erupts over the problems of earth.

Looking at the cover, I can't help but wonder who the guy to the left of Superman's right knee is.

Hmmm...

In the past couple years, Superman freed the bottled city of Kandor from Brainiac's clutches and re-embiggened it to full size. Suddenly 100,000 Kryptonians were living in the North Pole. When some of them started using their powers to capture/kill Superman's baddies, they were forced to evacuate the planet and created their own new planet I believe still in our solar system. That's the point where the existing trades stop but they've been spending a year showing Superman living on New Krypton trying to quell their hot blood I believe.

I just looked again and you're right about the slight costume change...I dunno how you could have a spoiler about a cover and have people pissed off when it's only speculation. It does look very much like a Bat symbol encased in the shield of the House of El without the S. I wonder how Dick...or Bruce(see the announcement about his return by the time War of the Supermen begins Bruce could be back home by then) influence Chris.

The dude who was interviewed about the project said don't be surprised if characters change allegiance during the course of the event and said characters be ones you don't expect too.

That was the first thing a friend of mine thought when he saw that.

I personally think they probably could have put a little more thought into the promo artwork. It certainly doesn't do much to get me all a-flutter over the upcoming series.
