Convergence: Superman #2
This time we put the spotlight on Nathan Aaron, a reader of the site, with some interesting information:
Rumors have it that the Pre-Flashpoint Superman will once again take over the official Superman role in the DC universe after Rebirth (with the New 52 Superman going away in some manner.) He is currently starring in the Lois & Clark mini-series, but their first official return was in Convergence: Superman #1. And in #2, Lois gave birth to Jonathan Kent, Superman’s son. DC is also debuting a Super Sons series later this year (one of two books with no creative teams announced at WonderCon.) And this book is (rumored? Or factual? Not sure) to star Batman’s son, Damian, and Superman’s son, Jonathan, in the starring roles of the book. So it looks like Jonathan might be built up as a big character in the DC universe. Just something to think about, as this issue can be found in dollar bins at the moment!
- Cheap spec … check
- Superman without collar on the Super Sons art … check
- First Jonathan Kent (as opposed to Clark Jr or Joel) … check
- Evidence that someone actually read Convergence … inconclusive
What do you all think? Worth it? Considering the price tag, I would have to go with a resounding yes! Thanks a bunch, Nathan!
