Superman: Heroes #1 hits stores from DC comics this week, celebrating the emotional moment of Superman revealing his secret identity to the world with the first of two six-dollar one-shots by all-star creative teams.
And in this preview, we begin with a scene from Superman's past, with Pa Kent being Pa Kent… well, one Pa Kent, anyway.
Superman's Earth dad is portrayed as compassionate, understanding, and filled with sage advice.
A stark contrast from another portrayal of Pa Kent, from Man of Steel. That Pa Kent advised his own son to let him die in order to protect his secret identity, and produced a Superman who snaps necks and makes out with Lois Lane in the wreckage of Metropolis. To some, that's the ideal version of Superman and his family, but not in the Bendis era at DC.
In the present, Superman and Lois Lane consider the effects of their marriage finally being out in the open.
And Lois is okay with it, but she does think Superman needs to do something first.
What's in the box? What's in the box?!
Superman: Heroes #1 costs twice what a comic should on Wednesday. Will it be worth it?
