One of the big events to happen in the Man of Steel weekly series was Superman’s father, Jor-El, taking Lois Lane and Jonathan Kent out to the far reaches of outer space. Jor-El’s reasoning was for Jonathan to experience life outside of Earth, thereby connecting more to his Kryptonian roots.
According to DC Comics’ October 2018 solicitations, Lois and Superman’s time apart will come to a head in Action Comics #1004 when the couple meets back up, with the text teasing a redefining of their relationship.
What makes things dicier is Superman’s communicator that would have allowed him to keep in contact with Lois and Jon was destroyed in his battle against Rogol Zaar, leaving the Man of Steel unable to know if his family was in danger. Now, Action Comics #1004 reveals Lois is at least okay, though she’s returned to Earth without Jon, and didn’t immediately go back to Clark Kent after her return. The solicitation also goes on to ask whether Lois still loves Clark.
Check out the solicitation text for Action Comics #1004 and its cover below.
