What's New In The New 52: Introducing Parasite

By Bob Harras Thursday, June 20th, 2013

During September’s Villains Month event, discover the all-new origin of Parasite in The New 52!

ACTION COMICS readers are familiar with the Hybrid Monster that terrorized the Man of Steel in recent issues. But what happens when someone other than Superman comes into contact with this creature? Hint: it ain’t pretty.

In Parasite’s one-shot, you’ll be introduced to a new character – a down-on-his-luck delivery man who gets through life by just living off of other people (crashing in other people’s homes, using his girlfriend for work, etc.). But after a freak accident, Parasite is born – and his first interaction with Superman will leave your jaw on the floor. Trust me.

To hold you over, check out Aaron Kuder’s awesome character designs in the gallery above!

Until next time,
