Looks like there's a lot of changes coming down the pipeline post-Convergence. Nerdist had the solicit for ACTION COMICS #41, which goes on sale on June 3rd, and the cover shows Superman with a completely new look.

ACTION COMICS #41

Written by GREG PAK and AARON KUDER / Art and cover by AARON KUDER

THE JOKER Variant cover by DARWYN COOKE

On sale JUNE 3 • 32 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T

The epic new storyline “TRUTH” begins! For Superman, there’s no more holding back!

Looks like Superman is getting really casual. At first, this almost looks like it has to deal with just the story line going on in ACTION COMICS. However, the cover for SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN #18, released by Uproxx, shows that this new costume is DC-wide

No Caption Provided

As we mentioned earlier, Wonder Woman also has a new costume as well. As for Superman, aside from the t-shirt and jeans, he's also getting his hair trimmed up and sporting some stubble, and during Greg Pak and Aaron Kuder's run on ACTION COMICS, Superman is no stranger to facial hair.

As most fans probably realize, the chances of Superman eventually going back to the old costume is pretty high, but as of right now, what do you think about the costume change? Does it work for you or does he come off as just a dude in a Superman shirt?

Not really much to say, he looks like how he is in Future's End just without the beard.

Looks like just some dude in a Superman shirt. I think I hate the hair more than the outfit.

I don't like either of them. Superman looks to plain and WW has too much going on in her design.

Specifically the Young Justice version. That being said I kinda like this look.

Nope. Don't like this one at all. He's just some random dude in a t-shirt. Not a symbol of hope anymore. Not a fan of the short hair either. I'm ok with stubble or beard Superman but this is outfit just doesn't indicate superhero.

I hope this doesn't last long. It take away from the "awe" he's suppose to project.

I prefer my Superman with his red cape and blue clothing. I guess we won't know why he changes to this until the story hits, but right now I feel like they could have done more.

Wonder Woman on the other hand; I love the new outfit. Wrist blades are dumb, but everything else looks pretty sweet.

Ι am all for T-Shirt and Jeans.

But the gloomy face, the black symbol and the shreaded cape wrapped in his fists are what actually make me scarred.

@saint_wildcard will love it though.

I hope these costumes are not permanent. I hate Superman costume because he is basically superboy. I would actually like Wonder Woman's costume if they would get rid of the blue that is covering her skin. I really think DC is playing with us. I think the characters are not Clark, Bruce, and Diana. I they are actually Kurt, Damian, and Donna. Something happens to Bruce, Diana, and Clark during convergence. This could be another world.

This is literally such a disgrace. I understood him having the t-shirt and jeans in the beginning of his career but now this? Seriously, DC, you're beyond being a bunch of f*cking morons at this point.

THEY EVEN CHANGED THE COLOR OF THE INSIGNIA. IS THERE NO RESPECT FOR TRADITION ANYMORE?

Of course this is a side story or a temporary costume clothes. The logo is all sort of wrong and hair. Kinda feels like im back in the 90s. This is on the same level as the black costume in reign of supermen.

I know who it is. Its Superboy. Why does he took Superman's title?

Man and the first story is a crossover as it seems. I may drop Superman. My wallet can't handle constant crossovers.

Thanks for tagging me, both in a good and bad sense. I'm not a big fan of Superman going back to the T-Shirt and Jeans look, especially since it basically looks like an older Superboy and it takes away from the awe Superman is supposed to project. No cape, no costume, nothing. The new Wonder Woman costume looks pretty angsty too, completely shedding any pretense of Wonder Woman being an ambassador of peace.

I'm just waiting for Saint Wildcard's pants to explode at this news and then my day will be complete.

To play devils advocate. That symbol is pretty traditional. Its classic Golden age symbol.

And Superman has used black font before.

What scares me though is the "dark", "angry" tone the pic has.

What? No! There was a reason he had the suit! There's no reason to wear jeans!

How is he gonna respond to stuff?

"Clark, we need you. Amazo has escaped"

"Gotcha Batman, just lemme change into some jeans real quick. I'm wearing slacks at the moment"

I mean, I know he could do it quickly, but its not gonna cool to see him change into Super Jeans everytime a villain pops up. Also, these jeans are 1) kinda snug, and 2) gonna get ripped apart by any real battle, so...

WWs new suit is awesome though
