Looks like Lucy became Superwoman because of the Amazons. Wonder how Supes will react when he finds out his siter-in-law was attacked by her people and that's what drove her to become Superwoman (which led to her death).

The rest of the Superman solicitations are here.

I loudly squeed when I saw that Adventure cover. I'm man enough to admit this. :D

Can't decide which is cuter: the above cover for ADVENTURE COMICS #2, or the Gary Frank cover for SUPERMAN: SECRET ORIGIN #1.

I think the Gary Frank cover has the edge. Wee little Clark is just adorable!

Oh Kon, you're adorkable. You have a thing for sky-dates, don't you? I hope he makes a cloud castle for Wonder-Cassie like he did for Bat-Cass.

Say, is that Babs on the cover of Superman/Batman #64? Are they going to revisit the "pregnant with Brainiac" thing?

Kara's "oh shit!" face on Supergirl #45 is hilarious. I want an icon.

The Adventure cover is beautiful.

The cover to Supergirl 45.

Oh scans_daily, how you have corrupted me when I see that cover image.

I can't help but think of two mottos:

"If it doesn't get all over the place, it doesn't belong on your face."


"It's ain't great if you don't have to wipe."

That's not aggression. That's love.

Mwhahahaha! Cassie shall never escape the curse of the contents of Conner's undies! Stand by for another potential three years of Wonder Girl bursting into tears once an appearence.

Ah, the Adventure Cover is so beautiful. And Kon and Cassie were/are my favorite DC-Couple. But I´m afraid they will not come together again. Because this could bring the teenage-angst level of DC down and we can´t have that.

-Krypto deserves better than holding up the table Kon! I hope Kon does the same for Krypto's dates.

-those legion back ups are such a waste. Who wants to bet its 8 pages of the Ranzz family tree? How they got their powers, how Mekt is a singular gone mad yadda yadda yadda

-I don't care about Lucy Lane, she's overshadowed Supergirl in her own book long enough

- as for the supergirl cover, how cute is that? Middleton is the man! In my mind all the Kara's of the multiverse have the same face. Peej, Supes, nazi supes, pre crisis supes..Ok maybe not superlad but that cover is the first I've looked at since she came back and I could see Pre Crisis Kara. Weird.

Okay. I love the cover for Adventure, but dear God Geoff Johns is writing Cassie again. Nooooooooooo!

Also, they don't need to be talking about a future together. They're seventeen. They should just be having fun.

superheroes can die at any time, and they also have more responsibilities than average. They should be more mature than average.

Wonder how Supes will react when he finds out his siter-in-law was killed as a result of what Diana's people did.

Right, let's blame the Amazons and not Sam Lane, who actually had Lucy transformed into Superwoman.

AGGHHHHH my thoughts exactly. Now I personally have not kept up with this storyline, but it seems like the Amazons have become like that Milli Vanilli song
"Blame it on the rain"
Why must they be written as villians O__O ..
I love my Themys and Banas. I am all for them having inner conflict, but geese, why must they be the enemy of the world they send there frikken ambassador to preach :x

My chicks are not getting break since Polly was killed in WOW ;_;

I don't think the issue is blaming the Amazons, just redorion.

Yes, Supergirl pulled open Lucy's supersuit because of the Amazons. It makes perfect sense, it absolutely does.

I don't think her book is considered part of the super-family right now. All these books either have superman or are connected to New Krypton

Aww. And soon after the Kent barn will be found destroyed once they reunite.

Thankfully they always have AMISH-LAD who uses his barn-building powers everytime the Kent barn gets blown to bits, which is like every other week.

you just know we'll get the standard superhero story where despite how much they'd missed each other they'll "give each other space"
