    Default The "New Age" of Superman?

    At today's DC panel at the 2017 Diamond Retailer Summit, they announced six new original titles for the fall,and proclaimed we were about to enter "The New Age of DC Heroes"

    Is this our post-Rebirth phase? And if so, what do you expect to see how it affects the Super-Books?

    I don't think that it will affect the Super-books at all.
    Educational town, Rolemodel city and Moralofthestory land are the places where good comics go to die.

    DC writers and editors looked up and shouted "Save us!"
    And Alan Moore looked down and whispered "No."

    I feel like Rebirth has already been "New Age of DC Heroes..."

    Well Jon and Kenan do fit a "New Age"-esque theme for the range

    I'm not really strongly attached to the current DCU status quo in any way so I'm down for anything at this point. I hope Jim Lee's has no or little role in the creative process in this.

    So from what I understand these are like events leading into one another? Dark Matter sounds pretty cool anyway, hopefully it actually opens up some opportunity to change things.

    From reading the article it sounds encouraging that creators want to be apart of it, hopefully a sign that DC editorial is loosening their stranglehold on things over there.

    Sounds like if anything this will affect Superboy more than it will Superman.
    They can be a great people Kal-El, they wish to be. They only lack the light to show the way. For this reason above all, their capacity for good, I have sent them you. My only son. - Jor-El.

    Clark would still kind of fit given his paternal and mentor responsibilities influencing Jon.

    I didn't see anything there that directly referenced Superman. So whatever this is, it must not involve him very much. What I'd like to see is more of his backstory. Fill in the blanks. I'd also love to see the multiverse used more. Superman seems like the perfect venue for that.

    Hence why I added a question mark, I was wondering if the New Age thing was either the name given to post-Rebirth, or just for this new hero initiative?

    So far we know it involves Batman and the Hawkmen

    The Power Couple, Lois and Clark, are already back.

    Oh...oh, you mean the one that even Diana said never mattered to her?

    Yeah, you still get a version of that in Miller's 'verse.

    I'm not getting anything concrete from the linked article beyond "JRJR, Kubert and Capullo are part of an artists initiative of some kind".

    All the rest strikes me similarly to using "edgy" and "dark" as buzzwords without bothering to explain what they mean.

    The "new age of heroes" are a bunch of new characters/series no one will care about: https://www.bleedingcool.com/2017/04...ogether-shall/

    Yeah, this clearly has nothing to do with Superman. I'll definitely check out Snyder/Kubert's Challengers relaunch though.
    You can follow me on Twitter or Tumblr, if more of my opinions sounds like something you'd like.

    Because "fans" refuse to allow themselves a chance to care about them.

    Sign me up for Challengers.

    I love super science and exploration. Hope to see a Superman and family guest appearance. Always thought they'd play well off each other.
