If you've read the new Action Comics issue, you'll understand why it's important that Superman makes his climactic return to take on Lex Luthor in the lead story for next month's milestone ACTION #900.
Spoiler after the jump...
New episodes of BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD return to Cartoon Network tonight, with Batman facing up against another of the world's greatest superheroes: Superman! The Man of Steel is turned evil when infected by red kryptonite, and it's up to Batman to find a way to turn him back to his old self if they want to thwart Lex Luthor's latest scheme against Metropolis.
Catch “The Battle of the Superheroes!” when it premiers on Cartoon Network tonight at 6:30 PM!
SUPERMAN #709 provides an exhilarating new twist on the classic question of who’s faster: Superman or Flash? Who will outrun the other and what the heck is that thing on Flash’s head that’s making him speak Kryptonian and recite the planet’s history?
Written by J. Michael Straczynski and Chris Roberson, with artwork by Eddy Barrows & J.P. Mayer and a cover by John Cassaday, SUPERMAN #709 continues the Man of Steel’s “Grounded” storyline -- this time bringing Superman to the vast landscapes of Boulder, Colorado.
On the grand scale of things, dinosaurs are far from the most formidable enemies that Superman or Power Girl have fought. Honestly, what's a T-Rex compared to a Darkseid? Show me a velociraptor and I'll show you Doomsday.
So then why are a few overgrown reptiles rampaging through Manhattan giving them so much trouble? Shouldn't this be an easy day's work for those two?
Find out in POWER GIRL #22, on sale Wednesday.
