Wow, that's a pretty badass Superman cover. Too bad they don't have that guy doing the art.
Helspont? Oh man, that brings back some memories.

Like memories of the Image Universe actually being coherent. I remember I thought it was way cool that Helspont had possessed the body of an Acurian, like Photon from Youngblood. That was the good kind of continuity and world-building.

The upshot is, I'm eagerly waiting the issue of Red Hood and the Outlaws where Chapel shows up and gives Starfire AIDS.

And looks like some minor tweaks to the costume as well.

And it suddenly becomes clear why Cornell and Perez were removed from their positions.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

The plot threads in Stormwatch and Superman were connected. I think the horn in Stormwatch had some connection to the story in Superman by Perez. Now there is a Daemonite in Superman. I think there is probably some Wildstorm oriented crossover in the works by DC that was being built up slowly in those two books. And when the writers weren't doing it fast enough they got new writers to do the job.

That's a bit back to front, if the scripts they turned in didn't make the connection quickly enough, they would have simply been told to change them by editorial - DC don't publish those things unread.

Yes I would agree that moving the story along fast enough would hardly be a reason to replace people.

In other news I am quite enjoying Blue Beetle now that I can understand the armor and ok we get it Ronnie Raymond and Jason Rusch dont like each other, can we advance the story now please.
Captain Atom is just boring even with an appearance by Flash, and well at least they didnt fight in that issue.
Dont like the new costume on the new Ray.
Catwoman better than expected, Superboy not so much.
Supergirl, Superman and Action all pretty good.
Swamp Thing, Animal Man, Aquaman all near the top
Justice League Dark, Blackhawks, Birds of Prey near the bottom.
Enjoy LSH but not Legion Lost.

The belt is different. less "chunky". Also, the red piping on the wrists is either new or more prominent. Like I said, minor. The belt definitely looks better there. What we can see of it.

I'm thinking every artist is gonna slightly change things up and do his own take, but the costume would officially stay the same.

No two artists have drawn it the same way yet - why would this cover be any different?

Every time I see it...the suit grows on me. Even with the high collar which isn't really that big a deal. I think the belt buckle is the thing that most bugs me. It looks ugly. That being said I'm probably going to be picking up a New 52 Superman when the first wave of toys comes out next year. Along with a Batman and Wonder Woman.

Only thing I still don't like is the piping. It was cool on the TNG uniforms, but just seems like one design element too much on this costume.
