Everything you thought you knew about Superman’s origin may have just changed.



SPOILERS ahead. You’ve been warned.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Brian Michael Bendis joining forces with DC Comics was the biggest creator news in years. The guy has done so much and pushed the needle so far at Marvel Comics, seeing him leave the House of Ideas came as a shock.
