The Curious Case of SUPERBOY & SUPERMAN's Armor
Readers might be tempted to write that off as simply your standard exaggerated cover tease (and for accuracy sakes, DC qualifies the image as a promo image and not the final cover art), but as it turns out, this is actually the second time this costume dynamic has been seen.
“With Superboy dying from the wounds H’el inflicted on him...” reads the solicitation copy to Superboy #15, part of the Superman Family “H’el of Earth” crossover event.
Could those machines be life-support? Could the armor be a means to help save Superboy?Andy Diggle and Tony Daniel’s Action Comics #18 (appearing in a seemingly Kryptonian background) and it again leads to the question – could Superboy be inheriting Superman’s armor in the coming months, perhaps long-term, necessitating Superman getting a new costume?
DC declined to comment on our speculation. But there is a Superman panel Thursday evening at 6:30pm ET at New York Comic Con so maybe the topic will be addressed then.
