Despite the more generally optimistic tone that has characterized DC’s Rebirth titles, Superman has not had an easy year. He’s been attacked by some of his greatest enemies, had to deal with a brashly empowered Lex Luthor, seen his secret identity duplicated, almost had his son wiped from existence, and even had to deal with a mysterious new force from beyond this world.

That new force, Dr. Oz, has been plotting and scheming for the past year. He’s ripped heroes such as Tim Drake from the world and has taken a particularly keen interest in the Man of Steel. Next month, DC will reveal what Dr. Oz has been building to in an Action Comics event called “The Oz Effect,” but his motivations begin to become a little clearer in this Wednesday’s Action Comics #985. Check out Comics Beat’s exclusive preview of the issue after the jump.

As world events point to something dark on the horizon, the mysterious Mr. Oz makes his final move against the Man of Tomorrow.
