DC Comics Rebirth Spoilers / Multiversity Sequel Spoilers follow for Superman #14.
The book opens with The Red Son Superman of…
The Prophecy has is Gatherers going across the multiverse collecting Supermen. The Red Son Superman traveled to Earth 0 as Kenan Kong, the New Super-Man is next on the Lyst (yes, that’s the spelling of it).
It appears that the Superman that anchors Action Comics and the Superman DC Rebirth series they’re after – as he’s some kind of anomaly – that may be finally explained after the Multiplicity arc in the Superman Reborn arc.
Anyhow, Kenan Kong is captured in the issue.
Despite the presence of the Justice League Incarnate…
…and its leader the black President Superman of…
BTW, in Multiversity they were just the Justice Incarnate whereas…
…in DC Rebirth the word League was added to the team name.
Anyhow, with the capture of Kenan Kong, the New Super-Man, it is revealed that the Justice League Incarnate cannot track where the captive Supermen are.
However, while the Justice League Incarnate don’t know where the captive Supermen are, readers get to see which Superman are captured and how they’re being held.
