This week in Superman #16 by Brian Michael Bendis and David Lafuente, the now aged-up Jonathan Kent and Damian Wayne had the long-awaited reunion of the Super Sons. With Jon facing a huge decision (whether or not to leave for the 31st Century with the Legion of Super-Heroes, as seen in Superman #15), he strapped in for another night of adventuring with his best pal. As we saw at issue’s end, Jon did opt to leave (shades of going to college basically), but not before Damian urged him to bring him along sometime.
Well, DC has been kind enough to send over a new preview of the first issue, which gives you a look at Jonathan’s first days in the far-off future, they also sent over the first look at the cover for Issue #3 by Ryan Sook, which teases Damian’s arrival a whole lot sooner than we had any reason to expect.
“This HEARKENS back to the original ideals and concepts of The Legion, but The Legion has not existed in continuity of the DC universe as it stands today. This is a brand-new Legion of Super-Heroes.”–Brian Michael Bendis
