The Superman 75th Anniversary panel had two notable quotes from it, which I thought I should draw notice towards. The first is from Scott Lobdell, apparently announcing a big change for Superboy. The second is from Dan DiDio, and suggests… a Lois Lane series might be starting in 2014.
So, spoilers below.
The first quote comes courtesy of Matt Dodge from Multiversity, who quotes writer Scott Lobdell as announcing that the current Superboy is set to be killed off during the new Superman crossover ‘Escape from Krypton’:
Superboy makes the ultimate sacrifice, giving his life in order to stop the universe from falling apart
Although apparently this does not mean the ongoing Superboy series is cancelled, as he will be replaced by a clone version of the character who was previously established, called John Kent – who was created by mixing together genetic material from Clark Kent and Lois Lane. Ohboy.
But speaking of Lois Lane, the more interesting news is that there appears to be a hint that Lois Lane will be getting her own solo series next year. Lucas Siegel from Newarama reported that DiDio said:
It’s her 75th Anniversary, too. We have big plans for Lois Lane in 2014, and who knows, her name can look just as good on the title of a comic as Supermans, can’t it?
