Strange things are happening to Superman in DC’s comics. The current Superman is dying, and not only will he be replaced by the Superman of DC’s old continuity, but his powers will be diffused into many other people: including a Chinese man named Kenan Kong. But Kenan’s not going to be alone in his fight for justice. DC has released solicitation text for the second issue of Gene Luen Yang, Viktor Bogdanovic and Richard Friend’s The New Super-Man #2 through Comic Book Resources, and it reveals that just as Kenan is coming into his new set of amazing powers, he has to be put in check by the Justice League of China — a group which includes New Bat-man and New Wonder-Woman.
They won’t be enemies, though — the other heroes just want to bring Kenan back down to Earth so he can help them take on a new threat in the form of a villain named Sunbeam. Superheroes? Working together? Why I never!
New Super-Man begins in July, while New Bat-Man and New Wonder-Woman will make their debut in New Super-Man #2 on August 10.
