New 52 Superman Meets Old Superman in DC’s ‘Super League’ Crossover

  

DC has released new covers and preview art shedding light on the upcoming “Super League” crossover. This crossover will see writer Pete Tomasi take over all four main Superman titles (Action Comics, Superman, Superman/Wonder Woman and Batman/Superman) in April and May and explore what happens when a re-powered Man of Steel attempts to build a bigger, better team of heroes.

Check out covers and some preview art for all eight chapters of Super League:

The biggest selling point of this crossover might be the fact that Superman will cross paths with his pre-New 52 counterpart in May’s Action Comics #52. That Superman was given a second lease on life thanks to last year’s Convergence crossover, and the mini-series Superman: Lois and Clark has been following the character as he makes a new life for himself and his family in the New 52 universe.

Interestingly, the cover for Action Comics #52 was previously attached to Superman #50 in DC’s March 2016 solicitations. It seems that whatever plans DC had for this meeting of Supermen changed and became more ambitious.

Check back later this week as DC’s full solicitations for May 2016 are revealed.
