This July, a new but familiar Man of Steel will be entrusted to protect our planet.
On July 13, Superman: Son of Kal-El will debut to replace the current Superman monthly title. Written by Tom Taylor (Nightwing, DCeased, Suicide Squad) with art by John Timms (Young Justice, Harley Quinn), the new ongoing monthly series will feature Jonathan Kent, protecting the Earth as the new Man of Steel.
As Clark Kent continues his fight to liberate Warworld, both on the front lines and with a new team of covert operatives, the new series will follow the son of Superman as he begins his next chapter. Jonathan Kent is well suited for the task of wearing his father’s cape, having fought evil with Robin (Damian Wayne), traveled across galaxies with his Kryptonian grandfather, and lived in the future with the Legion of Super-Heroes, who were intent on training Jon for the day his father could no longer be Superman. There is a hole in the Legion’s history that prevents Jon from knowing exactly when that will happen, but all signs point to it being very soon.
