First Look: SUPERMAN #18

What could Orion's appearance here mean for Superman?

H'el on Earth may have ended but Superman's problems have just begun. It turns out Superman will have to answer to the United Nations over the fact that he has a Fortress of Solitude. It seems they see it as a possible threat to international security.

From the preview DC has released, the UN just might be the least of his concerns as we see someone else making an appearance.


• The new H.I.V.E. makes its stunning first appearance in The New 52 by trying to take over Metropolis!

• More on Clark Kent’s life as a reporter away from The Daily Planet!

"He's a New God. Obviously" What obviously?! If this is the first time that New Gods have shown up, then how can the narrator tell it's a New God? I know I'm being picky, but I hate it when dramatic dialogue does stuff like that and I'm like: How do you know?

Also, if they're hinting at Wonder Woman and Orion pairing up, then ewwww.

Gosh, Orion's look here is one of the few exceptions in which a character in New 52 has IMPROVED. Digging it.
