There’s an “S” on his chest, a red cape on his back and bit of gray near his temples.
Has Kal-L, the Golden Age Superman who died in Infinite Crisis, returned?
The recently reformed Justice Society of America has a real conundrum on its hands when a rip in the multiverse delivers them a man claiming to be Superman. While the heroes don’t know where this older version of the Man of Steel came from, fans will instantly recognize him as the central character in Mark Waid and Alex Ross’ classic miniseries, Kingdom Come, in which a violent future played out that saw DC’s greatest heroes fight a civil war that apparently destroyed the planet (Earth 22).
The question he, and the Society, face is whether his appearance on our world (New Earth) is the harbinger of the dark future that his saw? When a series of mid-level DC villains start turning up with holes blown in their chests in a manner very similar to the M.O. of Kingdom Come big bad, Magog, it sure seems that way.
Writer Geoff Johns, along with Ross, Canadian artist Dale Eaglesham and inker Fernando Pasarin deliver an unsettling new chapter in JSA history.
