I do not believe Snyder has any real sci-fi work under his name, barring the Flashpoint: Superman, so I remain sceptical of him delivering a solid Superman story, but under his pen the title should at least be mildy interesting.

Though this may only be a rumor and could turn out to be entirely false.

Sounds like it'd be cool and interesting. But then again, it makes me wonder how Scott will juggle work on so many titles. Batman, Swamp Thing, American Vampire, plotting on Talon, and now this? It sounds like it'd be a bit much, he might have to leave something.

He may be off of Talon by the time this book goes into production, provided of course that this isn't just a rumor.

I would buy this in a heartbeat. Superman is my favorite superhero and I've been waiting for a good story with him. Obviously, the normal Superman title hasn't been very good and I'm not a fan of what Grant is doing. I'm excited about Lobdell taking over Superman, but if this is true It'll be the best news I've heard in a while.

Yeah, but even then balancing Batman, Swamp Thing, American Vampire, and Man of Steel is still a bit much.

@SandMan_: I know. I can't describe how excited I would be if this happened. The only problem is that it would be a correct piece to the rumor that Johns and Reis are leaving Aquaman. I don't want that to happen. Aquaman is my favorite series.

The sad part is, DC isn't really in the "making sense" business at the moment. I hope that changes in a hurry.

I completely agree. Superman has been an abortion at best, this title definitely needs to happen if they want readers to buy something that isn't Supergirl or Superboy because both of those books have been great. Action Comics has been decent, but I'm more excited for what's to come with Diggle.

We don't need another Superman comic. They should try focusing on improving the existing one.

I hope not. Not out of dislike or dis respect for Superman, but out of aching many other characters to get their chance at a title.

Also American Vampire is coming to an end

Exactly. We have a Superman book. Now make it good. They're either wasting resources, or being greedy by deliberately making a third book because they know fans will buy it.

Yes, it would be. I may just be being cynical, but I'll believe it when I see it. Though, truth be told, I'm very interested in the H'el story has to bring.

@Z3RO180: It's been making me think he's Supes' clone from back on Krypton and that he's related to the Kryptonian clone wars. Idk though. I'm just pumped for an exciting Superman story for once.

@Kal'smahboi: @SandMan_: I think he is a clone from the kryton clone wars but he creator is not Jor-El may be Zor-El or Supes grand father cuase kara knew about the war but from what she said implys that she was not there.

@Z3RO180: Ah, gotcha. I haven't been reading Supergirl, so I didn't know the details. Another possibility: maybe some villain has discovered the Kryptonian cloning technology and messed it up?

one of the best comic book writers today and one of the best comic book artists on a superman book. its to good to be true. But, if this is true it might be DC's attempt at milking superman and building up his popularity since the movie is coming out next year

Why can't they just put Lee and Snyder on the main Superman title?

i really hope this is true. We don't know which books will be phased out for the 5th wave though, so it is possible that Man of Steel replaces one of Snyder's other books or one of the two current Superman series. I think it would be amazing to let Snyder have his shot DC's flagship hero, he's been rocking Batman so well that he certainly deserves the chance
