Super League Superman

When it comes to raw power, I’ve always believed that DC has had a massive edge over Marvel’s Avengers when it comes to the superpower arms race. Their heaviest hitter, a green steroid rage machine has already been knocked out cold by the man of steel, while Superman has proven himself capable of not only beating Thor in combat but has actually been worthy enough to wield his hammer Mjolnir.

Captain America? He’d be dismantled by Batman within seconds. And I haven’t even mentioned characters like Wonder Woman or Martian Manhunter yet, warriors who are almost in the same power category as the last son of Krypton. They’re not just a Justice League. They’re a Super League. And that’s the idea behind the upcoming April crossover between Superman, Batman/Superman, Superman/Wonder Woman and Action Comics.

Eight issues and several of Earth’s true mightiest mortals banding together to stop the unstoppable. Here’s a look at the covers and art of Super League from DC:

The “Super League” epic concludes in one explosive fight as the new master villain uses Superman’s own solar superflare power against everyone.
