This is what you have to love about the DC Universe. We're in the middle of the H'el on Earth storyline in SUPERMAN, SUPERBOY and SUPERGIRL. H'el has already proven to be a major threat so Superman does the smart thing, he calls in the Justice League to help out. That's why they formed. H'el wants to go back in time and bring back Krypton but that will result in the destruction of Earth. Sounds like a Justice League level threat to me.

We also get to see that because Batman is prepared for everything, he can even handle the harsh temperatures of the North Pole.

DC Comics has given us an exclusive preview for SUPERBOY #16, on sale January 16.

Cyborg looks less cyborgy than his previous look in the other comics.

This crossover better end well. It's been kind of lackluster, thusfar.

Cyborg: Batman we're going to the Arctic

Batman: and?

Cyborg: Well temperatures can get as low as -58 degrees

Batman: I've got that covered

Cyborg: You mean that piece of fur around your neck?

Batman: I'm Batman

@danhimself: Hey, that fur is also lining the back of his cape (even though it keeps fluttering behind him. I'd bet he even has like car seat warmer technology throughout his entire costume.

@G-Man: I don't see the point in adding the fur to the outside of the of the costume either...it's more decoration than anything

Fur is murder Batman. Quick throw some red paint on him.

It kinda looks like Han Solo's hoth outfit.

Wow that cape looks stupid. Batman would have some hyper insulated thermo suit or something, not a fur cape.

@G-Man: I honestly would have expected him to not wear so obvious winter protection. Thermal insulated layer of his suit? Whatever he's in when fighting Mr. Freeze?

@SneakyBawls: A one piece swim suit is just a one piece swim suit, a two piece is called a bikini.

dc chose not to use a recap page.

No matter who's the writer this always has to sound like "Dear dairy I'm Superboy a clone from NOWWHERE and I'm in problems" My only complain about this series >:P

Oh my..... that cape looks so pretty and cute... and knowing I'm talking about Batman sounds just so wrong

Awesome. I find this the only logical explanation. Otherwise, Batman would have used some thermal gear or something even better than wool(?).

Anyway, WW can definitely still wear whatever she wants lol. She's (apparently) impervious to cold. I, for one, have never seen her shiver (unlike the Flash... I wonder what his anti-frozen-tundra suit would look like...).

I think they should have went with a variation of The Arctic Suit from the The Batman. I wish these writers and artist get more creative with the Batsuits in the new 52, it makes no sense for him not to have an abundance of suit tech with all that Wayne Corp money, tech, and intelligence.

Also, i like what DC did to sell this book. How do you sell a Superboy book? You add the Bat on the cover

I hope Superboy keeps Superman's costume, or gets a version of it for himself. He looks better in it than Superman does.

They need to stop putting Superman in and out of his Suit and going backand forth with his Tshirt and jeans. It worked before he got the suit, now it just causes confusion. In one issue of Action cComics he is saving the day in jeans, the next he is in Watchtower with the Justice League with his suit. I know everyone liked the look so Instead dont have Superboy in the suit, let him use the Tshirt look.

@sentryman555 well now he can only use his TTK only by direct touch,so that might be just for dramatic effect,cause now it seems he has 90's kesel TTK ,hopefully they will explain it in the issue.

Batman wearing a different costume for the north pole makes sense but he really shoul wear an oxygen mask type thing. It's the NORTH POLE!! It's freezing, and the oxygen has got to be thin and he's in intense fights, he needs something, or he'll pass out dangerously fast.

Is it weird that I like Superman's costume when Superboy is wearing it, but not when Superman is wearing it?

It's better than Superboy's own costume at the very least, and I really like the jeans and t-shirt look for Superman.
