Death waits for no man—not even a Superman.
“The Final Days of Superman” saga sets the stage for the DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH launch beginning on May 25, which will result in new identities, new costumes and…even more Supermen?!
Part 3 continued in ACTION COMICS #51 “Dazed and Confused”, where with the help of Batman, Superman finds Supergirl at a D.E.O. facility, only to find out that she had been working with them to regain her abilities, as her powers had been leeched by the actions of Vandal Savage. Superman reveals to Kara the responsibility she must take on when he is gone, and gives her the key to the Fortress of Solitude. Meanwhile, the new “Clark Kent” made a deadly appearance at the Daily Planet and Dr. Omen receives a gift for her experiments—the Man of Steel’s blood!
Part 4 continues with SUPERMAN/ WONDER WOMAN #28 “Last Kiss” available Wednesday, April 27th. Wonder Woman confronts Superman about the news that he is dying, and with no barriers left, they confess what they could never say before. But all too soon they are called to aid in the dilemma that is the new and unstable “Superman”. But who is this newcomer? And what part does Ulysses play in this?
Where it began:
The devastating effects of Apokolips’ fire pits in JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARKSEID WAR, the A.R.G.U.S. Kryptonite chamber from “Savage Dawn” in SUPERMAN, and his battle with the would-be god Rao in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA all combine in a perfect storm of death for the Man of Steel. Determined to protect humanity, despite his impending death, Superman embarks on a quest to seek heroes from across the DC Universe to continue his role as humanity’s protector.
DC Entertainment proudly presents “The Final Days of Superman.” Writer Peter J. Tomasi architects this epic saga, encompassing all four Super-titles in April and May.
