Superman IV: The Quest for Peace's big bad, Nuclear Man, is getting a new chance at life thanks to Brian Michael Bendis. The DC exclusive writer announced that the character will make his in-continuity comic book debut in August 8's Superman #2. Here's Bendis' announcement from the DC Comics' Instagram:
