The Death of Superman was a 1992/1993 crossover event from DC Comics' that made mainstream media and got public attention more than any other comic book story before it – or after it Superman #75, which features his death, sold over six million copies over a number of printings and became the top-selling comic of 1992. The story has been adapted into various forms of media, including two novelizations in 1993, a video game, animated adaptations and it formed the basis of Zack Snyder's Batman Vs Superman and Justice League.
Does DC Comics want to do it again? I only ask – and Spoilers ahead – because this week sees the publication of Superman #29, which sees Clark Kent/Superman and Jonathan Kent/Superboy deal with stuff. Superboy has been off in the 31st century with the Legion Of Super-Heroes. And so he has spoilers of his own to share.
Superboy knows when his father will die. It's a part of history. And it's coming soon. Might it also tie in with the dangers and tyranny that Superboy will bring, as seen by The Spectre in Infinite Frontier #0?
Superman #29 is published by DC Comics on Tuesday.

Writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson jumps from DC Future State back to the present for a two-part story that spans Superman and Action Comics this month! In "The Golden Age," Jonathan Kent steps back to examine his father's legacy. When a monstrous foe from outer space attacks Clark—and nearly kills him!—this young hero must consider the fact that his father died once before, and the Legion of Super-Heroes told him he could die again. Any threat could be the one—including this one! And in the new backup "Tales of Metropolis" story, writer Sean Lewis (DC Future State: Superman of Metropolis) and artist Sami Basri (Harley Quinn) follow Jimmy Olsen on a quest to meet of some of the city's more colorful denizens, beginning with Bibbo Bibbowski!
