The Man of Steel 1The trunks are back and The Man of Steel relaunches with a new number 1 and a creative team in writer Brian Michael Bendis with art by Joe Prado and Ivan Reis. This is Bendis’ first big project with DC since signing an exclusive deal with the publisher, and what a perfect series to pair with the writer. I’m excited to see where he will take my favorite superhero.

This issue continues from Action Comics #1000, and expands on the story of Superman’s newest villain, Rogol Zaar. Was he responsible for the destruction of Krypton? Is he more powerful than the Man of Steel?

With an arsonist loose in Metropolis, Superman’s powers are almost useless in finding the culprit. And back at the Daily Planet, everyone wants to know what’s going on with Lois Lane. How can Clark hold on to the secret of what happened to Lois and Jon much longer?

The Man of Steel #3
The merciless killer and zealot calling himself Rogol Zaar has searched the cosmos for Superman—and when he reaches the Fortress of Solitude, his actions will cut Superman to the core.
