Exclusive Preview: ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #9

Superman has been captured in a prison unlike any he's been in before. Plus Lois continues questioning Lex.

Are you ready for more Superman? DC Entertainment releases digital comics pretty much every day. Each week you can get a new chapter of THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN. Last week we saw a preview for the second part of Matt Kindt's story. Next week the final chapter is out and DC has given us another exclusive look at the comic.

ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #9

"Faster than a Bullet" Part 3 of 3.

Written by Matt Kindt

The situation is dire! With Superman trapped in a kryptonite prison and Lois on the cusp of falling into Luthor's trap, is there any hope for the Man of Steel and the woman he loves??

Wow,this is such a Superman fanboy site.Four Freakin articles about him on the front page.

@beserkerfury: They have previews of all the popular/new comics based around any character, not just Superman. The third article you are referencing is about General Zod as a new DLC character in Injustice: Gods Among Us, but they've had that for all the DLC characters, including Batgirl and Scorpion (both of which have nothing to do with Superman). As for the fourth article, in case you haven't heard, Superman just had a movie, which is sort of a big deal.

Ya especially on a comic website no one would care.

@beserkerfury: He is a comic book character. If you look closely there are articles featuring other characters aswell. Superman may not be my favourite character, but he is still enjoyable and besides, there is a lot of Superman news lately anyway.

@beserkerfury: he is THE superhero, if you like him or not. There would be no superhero comics today without him.

Supes articles are being pushed to the front of the line the past couple weeks since the best superhero movie of the year just came out. Bet the same thing happened with Batman, Iron Man, Avengers, etc... And when Kick Ass 2 is in theatres I expect to see a few extra Kick Ass articles. I believe its called being topical.

So...what exactly is this series. He's in his old costume (aka the good costume), so is it the continuing adventures of pre-flashpoint superman? Or like a parallel earth title? Is it worth checking out?

Is that Darkseid at the end?

@docluthorvondoom: Yeah, it just extra stories being told in the Pre-Flashpoint universe

@shallbecomeabattoo: That age is over,he is no longer needed in the modern age of comics.

Yeah you obviously haven't watched Man of Steel which modernizes him and makes him relevant again, just because you don't like the character (I wasn't a fan of his either before the MoS version) doesn't make him irrelevant.

@dondave: Hmmm, this may be worth checking out then. I can read it and pretend that all this New 52 shit never happened; maybe it'll hold me over until this new universe gets interesting...if ever.

I'm not even a Superman fan and even I know you can't say that. Especially not on a COMIC BOOK website

@ultrastarkiller: totally, what the heck you talking comic book characters on a site called comicvine man? you must be cray cray

call me crazy but i think superman looks better with the red trunks

you say superman no longer needed YOU ARE WRONG ...popular opinion seems to disagree with your unpopular assement of whats needed and no longer needed in the modern age of comics.

Superman will always be the greatest superhero regardless if you like it. Get used to it.

@beserkerfury: go watch Man Of Steel, or read All Star Superman and say that again with a straight face and an IQ above 80.

Looks good, story's been quite enjoyable so far.

@mk111 said:

Yup.

Posted by Onemoreposter

This looks FANTASTIC. Classic Superman, classic Darkseid, and the Infinity Man (which means the possibility of my favorite group of New Gods, the Forever People!) I don't know why I'm not reading this, but I'm going to start.

Okay, if you are stating that as fact (since you didn't type 'I Think') you're going to have to explain why you think so. That's a pretty big arguement to make considering that Superman is one of the most popular and beloved superhero today and throughout the history of comics.

Oh that's awesome :) Can't wait to eventually get to that story!
