Despite having many origin-related issues in The New 52, there's still a lot of questions regarding the earlier years with some of the characters and of course there's much we haven't seen. DC is aiming to address that with a new ongoing series called SECRET ORIGINS. According to CBR, the upcoming book will chime in on the beginnings of some of DC's biggest heroes. The first issue will revolve around Superman, Supergirl and Dick Grayson. The writing team for that issue will be Greg Pak, Tony Bedard and Kyle Higgins. The creative team will apparently change from issue to issue.
Also announced is a Batman vs. Bane one-shot by Peter J. Tomasi and Scot Eaton. Titled FOREVER EVIL AFTERMATH: BATMAN VS. BANE, this issue is all about Batman returning to Gotham and finding out someone has taken his place as the Dark Knight: Bane. It's safe to assume their conflict will be solved in a not-so-peaceful manner. Anyway, here's an early look at the solicits.
