Superman gets another New 52 makeover because…New 52
Is it Clark or Connor Kent running around in DC post-Convergence?
Nerdist posted the preview for ACTION COMICS #41 [street date June 3] featuring Superman with a new, but sadly, familiar look.
This look is a switch on Superman’s look in Grant Morrison’s initial new 52 take on the character before he got the goofy armored costume he’s worn for most of the new DC era.
I was never a fan of Superboy’s Hot Topic inspired costume of a T-shirt and jeans, but it was simple enough for a teen and all the cool kids like black.
For DC’s flagship character though, this simplistic costume is just wrong.
It’s a problem when the movie universe, which almost always actively works to make costumes needlessly complicated and “realistic” more closely resembles a comic book outfit.
Maybe this look is just to make longtime comic fans appreciate the new 52 armored look a bit more?

Boooooooo. They need to try again if that is the end product of any new costume attempt.
Seriously. Drawing Board Take 30!
I’ve completely avoided anything New 52 because I hate the idea of rebooting and wiping complete timelines. This doesn’t bring me back in at all!
You’re the smarter of the two of us. Besides Batman and the Earth 2 books, which actually embraced the new universe and not just making a few cosmetic changes, it’s been underwhelming.
