Superman Becomes the God Of Steel


Darkseid is dead and you’d think this was a good thing. Unfortunately, his powers are being dispersed to the members of the Justice League. Our super heroes are not reacting well to their new godlike abilities. Writer Francis Manupal transports us into a grim world where the Man of Steel is transforming into a deity of doom. In the pages of Justice League: The Darkseid War: Superman #1. Artist Bong Davo brings Manupal’s vision to life through astonishingly illustrations that fill every panel of the issue.

Superman has evolved into a god of Strength. He has also become an angry, violent brute. What unlikely hero can save him in Justice League: The Darkseid War: Superman #1?

Justice League: The Darkseid War: Superman #1 is rated T for Teen. It contains violence, profanity, and frightening and intense scenes. Younger readers who are used to seeing the waving and smiling Man of Steel will be shocked by his potential turn to the Dark Side.

Hearkening back to the golden age of comic books, Justice League: The Darkseid War: Superman #1 references the strong relationship between Jimmy Olsen and the Man of Steel. We’re very much thrown into the dark world of the modern Post-New 52 DC Universe at the same time. It’s an interesting combination of two eras that most wouldn’t think should work. We’re left at the end of the issue with a sense that everything is going to get much worse before it gets any better.

Justice League: The Darkseid War: Superman #1 is available now in print and Kindle editions.
