ComicsAlliance's Official 'Superman Reborn' Betting Odds
ComicsAlliance's Official 'Superman Reborn' Betting Odds
So here's the short version if you haven't been keeping up: As The New 52 era came to a close and DC Rebirth began, the version of Superman that we'd been following for the past 5 years was apparently killed, leaving a void that would be filled by his predecessor from the previous DC continuity. See, the pre-52 Superman -- you know, the one who come to Earth from Krypton in John Byrne's Man of Steel and fought Doomsday back in 1994 -- managed to survive the destruction of his universe due to the events of Convergence, spending a year in the Bottle City of Metropolis, having a kid with Lois Lane, and then somehow winding up in the current DC Continuity where he lived a quiet life on a farm until he was needed. If it sounds complicated, that's because it is, but that also makes it one of the most compelling mysteries in superhero comics right now. And there's one additional wrench in the works: Clark Kent, a mild mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper who exists completely separately from Superman. Now, as "Superman Reborn" is set to kick off in this week's Superman #18, we're about to get the answer to one of DC's most compelling questions: Who the heck is Clark Kent?!
'Supergirl' Boss on Lex Luthor Debut After Flashback Cameo
'Supergirl' Boss on Lex Luthor Debut After Flashback Cameo
Supergirl’s ability to call on the full Superman cast has been difficult to chart; whether introducing its own Man of Steel after a season spent teasing him, or recent references to Lex Luthor. We’ve now officially met the latter in flashback, but might Supergirl follow suit with a full-fledged appearance, or are some characters still off-limits?

Superman Confronts Clark Kent In 'Superman Reborn'
The "Superman Reborn" arc that launches this Wednesday in Superman #18 is shaping up to be the culmination of a lot of plot threads that have been building since Rebirth, both in the Superman books and elsewhere. As we saw in an earlier preview, someone who appears to be obsessed with Superman has escaped from the mysterious Mr. Oz. And now, in these new unlettered preview pages shared exclusively with ComicsAlliance by DC, we learn that the apparent antagonist of the story is none other than... Clark Kent. Specifically the non-Superman Clark Kent who mysteriously appeared after Rebirth.

NECA Pits Aliens Against Batman And More [Toy Fair 2017]
You can always count on a number of surprises from NECA at Toy Fair, but this year, I don't think very many collectors could have expected the announcements the company unveiled. While new Predator and Alien toys are as expected, you never know what the mad geniuses at NECA might have in store for the likes of Evil Dead, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the other dozens of gaming and movie licenses it holds. All you can be sure about is that you will come away from the NECA booth ready to find a new source of income to pay for all the things you're going to need. Like the new Batman vs Aliens and Predator sets.

Ev-furry-body's Got One: Nine Furry Comics Crushes
If comics has taught us anything, it’s that anything can be illustrated, and if the internet has taught us anything, it’s that anything can be someone’s turn-on. Comics and furries go hand in hand, dating back farther than living memory, with modern furry fandom a direct multigenerational outgrowth of funny animal comics and cartoons. It’s Love and Sex Week here at ComicsAlliance, so we've decided to do our part to destigmatize furries, because we believe that everyone has at least one furry crush, whether it's the stars of Disney's Robin Hood, a Thundercat, or the stars of Disney's Zootopia. (We see you, Disney.) To that end, here are nine of our most animalistic passions from the world of comics.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics. While Valentine's Day maybe behind us for another year, love is still in the air and to celebrate the seasons, we're counting down the best couples in all of comics.

'Superman' #18 Launches 'Reborn', Builds On 'Rebirth'
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: Is Lex Luthor In Love With Superman?
Ask Chris #327: Is Lex Luthor In Love With Superman?
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.
