Promoting their schedule of events at New York Comic Con, DC Comics has revealed a new look at the Superman family, and everyone is getting new costumes. Though Clark Kent is getting old costumes, dropping some of the changes made to him last by Jim Lee for Action Comics #1000. And while he gets to keep the cape, everyone else from Jon Kent to Supergirl will be without one. And it also looks like we have a couple of new faces to the Superman family to join Supergirl, Conner Kent and Jon Kent, the Phaelosian refugees from Warworld who were so inspired by Superman, that they adopted his symbol, for the House Of El – and since they are of Kryptonite stock, his powers and costume as well. I wonder what they will call themselves? Phaeperboy and Phaepergirl? UPDATE: Graham Funke gets in touch to point out that they look more like Kenan Kong and Natasha Irons, and he does have a point. Thanks Graham. We'll find out for sure on… Saturday I guess.
Here's the run down for the rest…
