Comic Books: New version of Composite Superman appears in DC


The new Batman/Superman saga features a new combo character similar to the original Composite Superman on the World’s Finest #142 inked in 1964. He was a supervillain who died a hero in WF #168.

 Batman/Superman: World’s Finest #3, is still available for pre-order from DC comics. But the cutoff is Sunday.

We can expect to see a character with high-level Batman detective skills paired with the man of steel physical prowess of Superman. And the newest addition to the DC world will be a “Badass” Batman/Superman combination. 

Illustrator Dan Mora brings the character to life with his variant cover for Batman/Superman: World’s Finest #4. 

Mora tweeted that “I had a blast drawing this guy.’ 

The artwork reveals a mash-up superhero that mixes the uniforms and logos of the Man of Steel and the Caped Crusader. More will be revealed in Batman/Superman #3 and #4.

Upcoming issue #4 is written by Mark Waid. It had variant covers contributed to by Riley Rossmo, Freddie Williams II, and Derrick Chew. And the issue goes on sale from DC on June 21st.
