‘Superman’ #18 Launches ‘Reborn’, Builds On ‘Rebirth’ [Preview]

Featured

The threads left dangling in DC Rebirth are being picked up in Superman #18, written by Peter Tomasi with art by Patrick Gleason and Mick Gray. It's the first part of "Superman Reborn," a crossover running through Superman and Action Comics, and it sees the return of Mr. Oz, the mysterious figure who's been meddling in the DC Universe and kidnapping people who seem to have something to do with the pre-Flashpoint timeline.

Ask Chris #327: The Thin Line Between Love And Hate

Ask Chris #327, background art by Curt Swan

Q: Is it possible that Lex Luthor is actually in love with Superman? Is it the reason for his obsession and jealousy? — @RedEarth18

A: No.

Don't get me wrong: As much as it's been overused and misapplied over the years, the trope of a villain who's lashing out at a hero through some twisted kind of love isn't exactly one that I'm opposed to. It can be the source of some genuinely great storytelling, like Noelle Stevenson's Nimona, and it adds a lot of layers to villains that you don't often see in straightforward adventure stories where someone wants to punch someone else because they robbed the Crossword Puzzle Museum. I just don't think it works for Lex.

hqdefault6

Have you ever seen those movie ads on TV filled with gushing quotes from critics and thought to yourself, “I saw that movie; it was terrible. Where did they find these positive reviews?” If you have, you’re not alone — and you’re going to love ScreenCrush’s newest series, Critics Are Raving!, which balances the cinematic scales with trailers full of slightly more accurate (and slightly more negative) lines from reviews.

Good Thing: Here’s Superman Beating Up Cybernetic White Supremacists

DC Comics
DC Comics

The best idea from the New 52 relaunch of Superman continues to endure, in fan consciousness if not in continuity; Superman as social crusader, taking on the ills of our world that have been elevated to human-plus levels, including one of the most virulent evils of our world: white supremacists.

The CW

Supergirl had already promised the return of one metallic baddie in February’s “Luthors,” but might an armored Lex be far behind? That’s at least partly the insinuation in next weeks’ trailer, as the famous Luthor power armor is teased among other weapons.

New ‘Justice League’ Image Features More Superheroes Glaring at Things

Justice League
Warner Bros.

Based on the images we’ve seen so far (and just the images), it’s fair to assume that Justice League is a movie about A. a long-haired metal-head who starts a rock cover band with a group of people in unnecessarily elaborate costumes, or B. a team of superheroes who spend their time aggressively posing and staring at things offscreen. Either way, it seems like it could be a good time.

Ask Chris #325: Operation Justice Incarnate

Ask Chris #325, background art by Ivan Reis,

Q: Superman just reintroduced Justice Incarnate. Can this team make sense outside of The Multiversity? — @EfremOshinsky

A: One of the great things about superhero comics is that over the past eight decades, it's been twisted into so many different forms that there aren't a lot of concepts that don't at least do something interesting when you remove them from their original contexts. That's half the fun of the genre, right? The idea that you can take a character like Batman and make him work in gritty street-level crime stories or cosmic Justice League sagas and have it all work with the same core ideas.

That said, I'll agree that Justice Incarnate --- aka Operation Justice Incarnate, aka Justice League Incarnate, a pretty confusing string of names for a team that's only ever appeared in three issues --- is a bit of a special case.
