|Official cover of Action Comics #1|
As reported yesterday from The Source and New York Times, here are 5 facts you need to know about the new Action Comics #1 - asides from Superman wearing a tee, jeans, boots, and a short red cape:
- Story is set 4 years in the past, and will tell readers how the became the world's first superhero.
- Superman will be a "street-level defender who defends the ordinary man and woman."
- The character has more angst... and is more brooding (Earth-One reference?)
- He doesn't have the ability to fly yet, and he will be seen leaping tall buildings in a single bound.
- Superman is single and never married.
Sounds good to me.
Action Comics #1 is written by Grant Morrison with art by Rags Morales.
