The one true Superman has been reborn, and his greatest enemies have united to take him out within the pages of Action Comics! The Cyborg Superman has assembled the Eradicator, Mongul, Metallo, General Zod, and Blanque as the ultimate Revenge Squad. To achieve their mutual goals and kill Superman, they’ve tracked the Man of Steel to his Fortress of Solitude, where their presence has endangered Superman’s wife, Lois Lane, and their son, Jonathan.
The Revenge Squad hasn’t realized it yet, but Superman was blinded during their attempt to break Zod out of prison. Even Superman can’t defeat all six members alone and without his sight. But that’s the thing about Superman. His power to inspire means that he’s never truly alone. In his hour of need, the new Superman family has arrived to save him. Supergirl, Steel, Superwoman, New Super-Man, and even Lex Luthor have raced to Superman’s side. Now, in CraveOnline’s exclusive preview from Action Comics #983, the ultimate battle is about to begin!
This issue was written by Dan Jurgens, with pencils by Viktor Bogdanovic, inks by Jonathan Glapion, and colors by Mike Spicer. Clay Mann provided the primary cover while Mikel Janin drew the open order variant cover for this issue. Here’s the official description from DC Comics:
“REVENGE” part one! A beaten and battered Superman can barely hold his own against the revenge squad of his greatest foes—but hope rushes from the horizon as the Superman family arrives!
