Superman is Clark Kent? Please. You want to tell me that the bumbling mild-mannered newshound at the Daily Planet is actually the Man of Steel, saviour of Metropolis several times over? While the world may not believe that the two are one and the same, the idea of Superman’s secret identity being exposed to the masses is an idea that has been touched on several times over the years.
In fact, it already has happened several times, with 2015 being the most recent example, resulting in Lois Lane exposing Superman to the whole world like a flasher during the moon landing. That was back in Action Comics #41 (The New 52 era yo!), but fast forward a few more years and Superman is about to reveal who he really is, yet again. Only this time, the story by Brian Michael Bendis and Greg Rucka will give the last son of Krypton a bit more agency in the decision.
Here’s the plot synopsis for Lois Lane #7 and Superman #18, where the saga will unfold:
LOIS LANE #7
- Written by GREG RUCKA
- Art and cover by MIKE PERKINS
- Variant cover by YASMINE PUTRI
Someone wanting to kill Lois Lane is nothing new for the famed reporter, but is it because of something she knows or something she’s about to uncover? Plus, this issue ties to the events of December’s Superman #18 and the gigantic status quo shift for both Lois and her husband, Superman, when the Man of Steel decides to reveal his identity to the world.
- Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS
- Art and cover by IVAN REIS and JOE PRADO
- Variant cover by SKAN
With Superman’s family scattered across the galaxy, our hero must confront some of his greatest concerns about himself and his place in the galaxy. Legendary artist Ivan Reis joins writer Brian Michael Bendis as they introduce the biggest change in the Man of Steel’s life ever!
Should be interesting! Both issues will be out in December. Now, onto the best comic book covers of the week!
