DC is pulling the originally solicited cover for June 8’s Action Comics #957 (the first issue of the title in the Rebirth era), in favor of a new cover by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado. This new cover features not only the obvious Superman and previously discussed “Super” Lex Luthor, but also Wonder Woman, Batman, Lois Lane, Doomsday, Superboy, and Clark Kent.
Comparing it with the originally solicited cover by Mikel Janin, this new group image puts Lex into the background with the the Man of Steel front-and-center for the title. Here is the original solicitation:
