With everything in Superman's world so shaken up by the "Superman Reborn" storyline, it's no surprise that the effects would leak into a book like Superwoman. Superwoman, if you didn't know by now, is currently Lana Lang. That's specifically the Lana of the New 52 reality, although recent events imply that she might also be the previous Lana as well.

In any case, she's been Superwoman since Rebirth, but as of Superwoman #9, by writer K. Perkins and artists Stephen Segovia and Art Thibert, it looks like she might not be Superwoman anymore, as the new "Super Women" storyline begins.

Comics history tells us that when a story starts with the hero losing their powers, they'll have them back by the end (whereas if they lose them at the end of the story, you never know). So I think it's pretty likely that even though Lana is powerless as of these preview pages, she'll be Superwomaning around again soon enough. On the other hand, with a new creative team and all these reality shake-ups going on, it's possible that the plural in the title "Super Women" implies the introduction of a new Superwoman who might even take over the title. Personally, I'm not betting against Lana Lang, and I doubt Clark would either.

The synopsis tells us that Superwoman #9 also features the return of gay '80s assassins Cannon and Saber, but sadly they're not in the preview, so we'll have to wait until the book comes out on March 29 to see how they're doing.
