Ok... so why am I not surprised Kid Amazo, whom I assume is the one looming over the others on the cover, appears to be a kid with freckles and high probability of red hair? I mean... the two Super Sons are going to grow up to be heart-throbs like the rest of their families... but Kid Amazo later on? This:

Grabbing that Supersons for sure! I dropped Cyborg as much as I didn't want to, but that storyline previewed makes me happy with my decision.

@laughingbatman: Count me in for Supersons! Can't wait man.

As for the other titles, I'm not a Cyborg/Aquaman fan so haven't read them. However, I've heard Aquaman has been solid so far?

@eto: It is amazing and extremely solid, even before rebirth Aquaman was one of the few things that shined in the new 52. His brawls with Superman, and the shaggy man in Rebirth, and Hercules in the New 52 were sweet and epic . Also Dan Abnett in general paints a very political/xenophobic atmosphere into Aquaman since rebirth. So if politics is your thing, you may not like it, if action is your thing, you will definitely like it. There are always a few issues in between that are more introspective and don't have much action, but they also let you appreciate how badass Black Manta actually is. As a point of reference Dan Abnett is in charge of Titans right now and those issues are amazing. You should definitely check Aquaman out, at least the issues where the action is if that is what you are looking for.

@eto: I actually haven't been following Aquaman. It's always one of those titles I've meant to look into more, but then I get distracted by something else. Cyborg has been fairly lackluster IMO. I dropped a month or so ago. Supersons however just keeps looking more and more promising!

How is this a thing. Superman and Superboy should kill these two before they even realized it.

@jlfan15: Damn, I didn't notice that. Pretty disappointing, hopefully there's a reason behind that besides for just raising the price.

Nope, plot twist - Kid Amazo is actually Colin Wilkes all from pre-New 52 Streets of Gotham who is mad that Damian doesn´t play with him anymore.

That he's unlikely to be the 'same' character from before, I mean this is a F-level villain that had something like 1 story to his name.

I'm guessing they've been asked to include them now so people don't distribute the images too early.

Probably because this isn't Zack Snyder's Superman.

The current Aquaman and Super Sons books have been pretty by the numbers and lack luster.

The Cyborg title has been surprisingly well written. DC's biggest sleeper hit after Deathstroke

@laughingbatman: @eto: Aquaman is my second favorite rebirth book (Behind Superman) and imo, the most consistent rebirth book. Black Manta's character progression kind of goes in a circle, but everything else about that book is top notch.

Cyborg has actually been pretty good and semper has stayed focused on building his rogues and supporting cast up. It's really needed. I find it entertaining

@scbetton: Now if he could only tell a story that isn't overdone. The Identity Crisis is a bore and covered in his last, solo which I thought was better.

@scouterv: that hasn't been a concern in awhile. It was done by issue 3. All this has been doing is challenging his humanity.
