Lena Luthor’s Floating Head Is Causing A Whole Lot Of Trouble In ‘Superwoman’ #5 [Exclusive]

Superwoman #5, DC Comics

Do supervillains know that they're supervillains? In Superwoman #5, by Phil Jimenez and Matt Santorelli, Lena Luthor is a floating head situated above a green-and-purple battlesuit. That's a pretty key indication that history will not view her kindly, but alas, it doesn't seem to be affecting her decision to blow up large chunks of Metropolis. Next week, we'll find out if Lana Lang can stop her, but you can check out the preview right now!

ICYMI: A Super Woman Was Revealed To Be Queer In ‘Superwoman’ #3

Superwoman-Feat

There's been a lot of talk in recent weeks about queer characters in superhero comics and how to appropriately convey the information that the character is queer while not having them scream it at the top of their lungs. While most attention has naturally gone to Wonder Woman, even though she has yet to be confirmed queer on the page, this week's Superwoman #3 by Phil Jimenez, Emanuela Lupacchino, Ray McCarthy and Hi-Fi tackled the revelation of a supporting character's sexuality in an effortless way.

Up, Up, And Away: Phil Jimenez’s ‘Superwoman’ #1 Shocks Fans With Controversial Ending

Superwoman

When DC Comics announced its slate of DC Rebirth titles, Superwoman was one of the books that really stood out as coming from left-field. For a time, we weren't sure who Superwoman would be, and when it was confirmed to be Lois Lane donning the costume, there were still more questions surrounding how she got her powers, and even which incarnation of Lois Lane it would be. (There have been two versions in the DC Universe since the reality-mashing events of Convergence.)

This week finally saw the release of Superwoman #1 by Phil Jimenez, Matt Santorelli and Jeromy Cox, which firmly establishes the new status quo for Lois Lane and Superwoman, while raising a lot more questions about the future of the comic and its lead than anyone was expecting. This article contains spoilers for the ending of Superwoman #1.

A Celebration Of Freedom: Miracle Monday Through The Years

Miracle-Monday-Featured

It’s the third Monday in May and you know what that means… Good Miracle Monday, everyone! Today of course marks the thirty-fifth anniversary of when Superman defeated the great and powerful C.W. Saturn, and the people of Metropolis learned the meaning of joy. Although our collective memory of that monumental day remains hazy, throughout the world humanity celebrates with a day dedicated to friends, family and recreation and --- if it brings happiness --- reflection.

The holiday first appeared in Superman: Miracle Monday, a novel by Elliot S. Maggin, published in 1981, which follows a time-traveler named Kristin Wells from the 29th century who journeys back to discover the origin of the holiday and accidentally becomes wrapped up in its very events. While Miracle Monday has become a holiday for Superman fans in the vein of April 27th for Alien fans or May 4th for Star Wars lovers, it remains a fairly obscure piece of the franchise's history that has only been referenced on a handful of occasions.

DC Rebirth: All The Teams and Announcements From WonderCon

dcrebirth-feat

DC Comics hosted a special livestream event at WonderCon in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon to unveil the creative teams behind its DC Rebirth event, which relaunches the entire DC Universe line with new issue #1s and multiple double-shipping titles. The relaunch will set the future course of DC Comics at a time when fans are wondering whether the company will embrace a new and diversifying audience or double down on serving a shrinking core audience.

The event was introduced by DC All Access host Tiffany Smith, with DC co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio and chief creative officer and Rebirth chief architect Geoff Johns introducing and interviewing the creative teams as they joined them on stage at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Super-Who?! The Stories Behind DC Rebirth’s Strange New Superman Titles

Super-Books-Header

When DC announced its slate for the upcoming Rebirth line of comics, it played a relatively safe hand with its announcements. The line seems to head in the opposite direction of the risk-taking DCYou initiative, with many of the publisher's most interesting books, such as Midnighter, Starfire and Martian Manhunter, no longer on the docket.

Yet there are three announced books that seem curiously out of place in their line-up: The Super-Man, Superwoman, and The Super Sons. They're all new titles, but they're also titles and concepts that have a long and rich history in the DC Universe. We’re diving back into DC’s archives to see what clues the past might offer us about the future of these books.
