SUPERMAN, SUPERBOY & SUPERGIRL Crossover this Fall

The Super Family will have to deal with H’el on Earth.

SUPERBOY #14 cover

Later this year, specifically in November, the majority of the Superman books will be pulled together for a good ol’ fashioned crossover event called “H’el on Earth.” The crossover will run through the #14 issues of SUPERBOY, SUPERGIRL and SUPERMAN.

The first chapter in SUPERBOY #14, written by Tom DeFalco with art by R.B. Silva and Rob Lean, will guest star Supergirl and the Teen Titans as it picks up from the events of SUPERMAN #13 with Superman’s latest deadly foe, H’el, coming after Kon-El.

SUPERGIRL will then have a run-in with this villainous Kryptonian in SUPERGIRL #14, written by Mike Johnson and drawn by Mahmud Asrar. However, the twist is that Kara might find herself agreeing with H’el’s pro-Krypton/anti-Earth sentiments.

Lastly, the storyline will conclude in SUPERMAN #14, written by Scott Lobdell and illustrated by Kenneth Rocafort, where Supes will come face to face with a creature of unknown Kryptonian origin that is both stronger and smarter than he is. Fisticuffs will surely be had.

Not surprisingly, ACTION COMICS will not be a part of this mini crossover event. I think we can all agree Grant Morrison has far too much on his plate to wrap up before he departs the series with issue #16. He has no time to dilly-dally with a crossover.

The release dates for the “H’el on Earth” crossover are as follows: SUPERBOY #14 releases on November 14. SUPERGIRL #14 hits shelves November 21. And, lastly, SUPERMAN #14 launches November 28.

What say you super fans? Is this a crossover event you’re looking forward to? What do you think of this new character H’el? To me, he kind of looks like a cross between Bizarro and 90’s mullet Superman. That’s just my two cents.

Sounds exciting. Though I agree that this new guy looks too much like Bizarro.

This is not cool. Why is DC doing all this crossover stuff right when the Marvel Now starts? I can't afford all these comics. It's not fair. :(

He probably is.

bizarro,90s mullet superman and prime

Posted by BushidoBlack

Yeah, this might be the new Bizarro. Looks way too much like him.

Posted by Dernman

It could be the Nowhere clone from that issue of Superboy or TT. I'm not sure which. He could have gotten Kryptonian memories some how.       I hope this is Bizzaro and not yet another character or villain wearing the S symbol.

lol That's what I first thought LOL

Superboy looks lifted. Is that that guy's power? Make you high out your brain? Aside from that, I am GLAD that Asrar will be back to Supergirl in November.

Also, does that have to be Bizarro? Could it be that other clone of Superman that was found in the CADMUS facility in YJ?

looking forward to it

Posted by Kesho_Ronin

I this is what the "S" comic book was looking for.I also think it's going to be some sort of bizarro but they do mentione that he is smarter then superman. i really hope that this is going to kick it for superman stories.

Posted by MetalSonic

His face kind of reminds me of (derp) bizarro but that bloody super man sign makes me think Super Boy/Man prime. I mean they'res not any othe kryptonian left right? And this guy is stronger then superman (which prime was) and smarter (I don't really know of blizzaro or prime were smarter but still). The crest is definitely a prime thing, and SBP would total rock a mullet.

Posted by Smart_Dork_Dude

Good to see Bizarro back, but I wonder if we'll get the classic backward talk?

Posted by Deranged Midget

Hey look, Prime made his way into the New 52 and took cues from Kal-El's romps through the 90's. Fantastic...

@cc1738: That's exactly why they are doing it! XD

Posted by Thorion88

@Smart_Dork_Dude: It's not exactly Bizarro though, it's a Kryptonian clone from krypton called H'el.

Posted by sethysquare

My theory is he is the "Kon El" that Supergirl was talking about. The clones gone wrong.

Posted by RedOwl_1

Interesting indeed.

All I know is that evil clone with Superman's powers + weird skin condition + backwards S = Bizarro no matter what they call him.

I thought the odd backwards logo fellow was named Match?

That's only in Young Justice and Match is acts more like Superboy-Prime.

This.

Posted by Smart_Dork_Dude

@Scheiner: That's in Young Justice, this is obviously the new Bizarro

Posted by hyperman

"90's Mullet Superman"

I've got the feeling that the New 52 outfits and looks have a 90's vibe XD

Posted by Master_Thief

A fight with Bizarro leading to an introducing of Doomsday

Posted by MetalSonic

@sethsquare: I forgot about that. Good point.

Posted by Dedpool

Hmmmm I like. A badass, real kryptonian Bizarro!

Posted by pspin

Interesting, I wonder if he is the last World Breaker from Supergirl? I cant wait.

Posted by sj_esposito

This has me very cautiously interested...

Posted by SandMan_
@Smart_Dork_Dude: it might be Bizarro.
Posted by cc1738

@Planewalker: Thanks for stating the obvious.

Posted by ectoborge

The problem with superman is that the only threat to him is an evil superman. I have enjoyed the characters of Zod Bizarro and Superboyprime so I hope H'el ( Love the name) will hold his own as a character. This could be a great opportunity to unleash a great new superman villain not unlike batman court of owls.

Posted by TheCrowbar

Kneel before H'el.... wait a sec!

Does another company own Zod or something?

Posted by sweetesttoaster

I hate all this crossover BS. I was going to pick up Superman because of the new creative team but I don't want to pick up 2 other mediocre titles just to get the full story. Batman does it right where you don't have to pick up all the titles to get the full story. Guess I'll just stick to Batman and his Joker story and just wait till this crossovers done to try Superman again.

Posted by TheCrowbar

@sweetesttoaster: I'm not picking up Supergirl even if it was 99 cents. I am not shocked she's agreeing with a psychopath. Though Superboy is really good if you're into cerebral heroes and watching them get humbled.

Posted by SupahForeigner

The Superboy and Supergirl covers look poor, for a crossover event linking the three Supes I was expecting better cover art at least. Superman's cover looks good but the other two are a turn off point, chances are I will still get it but only because I like the Supes. The story, on the other hand, sounds pretty interesting and the villain doesn't look to bad.

Zod will probably have a storyline next year.
Posted by TheCrowbar

@SandMan_: Which will have the same exact theme.

Most likely unfortunately. Zod trying to take over Earth.
Posted by Lvenger

Well it's about damn time! Batman and Green Lantern get one before Superman gets a family crossover. I'm more intrigued about what Superman's reaction to Superboy will be than H'el himself.

Posted by Lvenger

@SandMan_: Isn't Action Comics 13 a Zod story? The clawed hand on the cover looks a lot like Zod's New 52 clawed hand to me.

Would be cool if they did an Superman Event story. Just like Blackest Night was GL.

@Lvenger: Claw?
Posted by The Finality

Finally! H'el reminds of this: http://images.wikia.com/smallville/images/d/d8/Phoenix_kryptonian_s.jpg

Edited by yo_yo_fun

This actually sounds pretty good to me. I think all of the Supers together would be very interesting. I would definitely check it out.

And Supergirl agreeing with the villain? I'm intrigued, I had to cut Supergirl from my pull list cause of the lack of money in my wallet so I don't know whats been going with her.

So, Scott Lobdell is going to take over Superman for sure? I'm not sure how I feel about that...

Posted by Lvenger

@SandMan_: It's a metal hand. I don't know why I thought it was a claw. This is what I meant:

Posted by SandMan_
@Lvenger: You think That's Zod?
Edited by feargalr

Finally a superman cross over! This has been way too long coming. Hopefully it'll be a good villain
