DC has been teasing new character designs in a recent segment called, "What's New in The New 52," and today they released a rather neat sketch of Hank Henshaw. Illustrated by Kenneth Rocafort, DC has definitely made some drastic visual alterations to the dude. Apparently, Cable won't be the only one with a ridiculous arm anymore.
"Some of you might remember the last time a Cyborg Superman showed up. Would we dare revisit such a classic storyline? Hmmm. Well, never say never, right? As I've been telling you, all bets are off. Everything's on the table.
Sorry to make your head explode on a Friday, but enjoy Kenneth Rocafort's lovely sketch in the meantime. We'll be in the conference room discussing … oh, never mind."
When it comes to The New 52, Hank Henshaw last appeared in TEAM SEVEN... and as a human. This is a bit confusing seeing as Green Lantern's history is considered in continuity and that included Cyborg Superman (Sinestro Corps War, for example). But, I think it's probably best to just realize DC's continuity is all over the place at the moment and just move on, yes? Regardless, it looks like his upgraded return will be part of a new take on his last pre-New 52 appearance, and, correct me if I'm wrong, it's my understanding that was 'Reign of Doomsday.'
