Any new info on the Superman summer crossover event?

#1 Posted by TurianAgent (60 posts) - - Show Bio

A while back I heard info about a crossover between Superman, Supergirl and Superboy that would happen in the summer but since then I have heard nothing. Anything new about this?

I think they are going to fight those wildstorm villains.

All I know is that it will involve Superman's first meeting with Superboy and that things won't go as smoothly as their first meeting with during the Reign of The Supermen. Sorry if that last part made no sense. In fact, the relationship between the Superman family could be a bit more rocky this time round. They're probably leaving this crossover till after the Night of the Owls one so that the Batman crossover doesn't clash with the Superman one.

@Primmaster64: Superman's only fighting Helspont in Superman 7 and 8 by himself. I don't think that the Wildstorm villains or the Daemonites will be the main threat for this crossover.

@RyuHayabusa: Is that image from Grifter #7?

@Lvenger: Yes

@RyuHayabusa: Ah I thought so. Was Helspont inside the ship that crash landed from the Stormwatch headquarters?

This is the solicits for Action Comics action comics #10

• CLARK KENT is DEAD!

• The three-part ACTION COMICS summer event storyline begins here!

• New villain NIMROD THE HUNTER is on SUPERMAN’S trail! He’s killed every living thing he’s ever tracked – but he’s never killed an ALIEN!

I think it has got to do with the Anti-Superman Army.

@sethysquare: That's just the story that will be running in Action Comics in June. It makes no mention of a crossover with Superboy or Supergirl so I don't think this is the Superman family crossover. That's just my interpretation though so we'll have to wait and see.

LOL but its written

The three-part ACTION COMICS summer event storyline begins here!

Which I am assuming the summer event would crossover into all the other books, if not it wont be called a summer event. So the crossover would probably be in issue 11 or 12.

So if Nimrod the Hunter which is part of anti superman army is in it, then I think we can get to see the rest of the anti superman army in here.

@sethysquare: Whilst I agree that the Anti Superman Army is the best candidate for a foe that unites the Superman family, the other Superman family solicits for that month don't mention that there will be a crossover next month. Superboy #10 involves Superboy lost in an ancient world with Wonder Girl whilst Supergirl #10 has Supergirl trapped in the nightmarish world of the Black Banshee. Both these stories look set to continue into next month, thus the Action Comics story should be self contained to that one title with no crossover with Superboy or Supergirl.

Uhm, well agree to disagree then. Because like Batman was the comic that led the whole batman line for a crossover and the story was set from Batman #1 all the way to #10. #9 is the crossover while issue 8 started the crossover with Nightwing.

So I think something similar would happen here.

Issue 10 is Action comics setting the plot.

Issue 11 might involve another book

Issue 12 involving all 4 books, as of such, no other books need to be involved in the cross over at issue 10.

Also, even if it doesnt involve the anti superman army, I dun think it'll involve Hellspawn or other wildstorm characters because Action Comics would be the comic that leads all the other comic in the superman line, so it wouldn't be from a plotline in Superman but rather in Action comics.

Thats my 2 cents.

@sethysquare: Very well. I suppose we'll know more when DC's July solicitations are released. That at least will confirm whether the storyline in Action Comics will set up the crossover. And whilst I expected Action Comics to run its own story and let the Superman title deal with any crossovers, I can see the point that since like Batman, Action Comics is the leading Superman comic that it would be the title to begin the Superman crossover with. I take it you read both Action Comics and Batman? Same here. They're two of my favourites and it's difficult to pick between them though I do have to that Batman is just ahead at the moment. Which one do you prefer?

Well, I love Superman with a passion, so I'm definitely going to say Action Comics. I don't feel such loyalty towards Batman, but I pick it up because its good. However, I'm intrigued enough with the Night of owls crossover that I'm picking up every single one of crossover except ASW. I'll decide which books to cut from there.

Action Comics will probably be the one that sets up this crossover, why else would they call Action Comics #10 the start of a summer event storyline? Unless there is something else planned.

@sethysquare: @TurianAgent: Just to let the both of you know in case you haven't already seen, the Superman solicits for August don't involve a Superman family crossover. Action Comics has something else planned and the other Superman family titles aren't connected in any way. Here's the link: http://www.dccomics.com/blog/2012/04/09/superman-group-solicits

I realised that as well, perhaps its in issue 12 or 13.

@sethysquare: Perhaps. But then again Superman's getting a fricking new secret identity in Action Comics! I wonder what that's about. In any case it's Grant Morrison, he knows how to surprise his readers and take characters in completely new directions that you never see coming.

@Lvenger: Any new new on a superman family cross over?

#21 Posted by supermanfan1234 (206 posts) - - Show Bio

apparently its gonna start in issue 13 of ac sm sb sg

#22 Posted by Lvenger (21835 posts) - - Show Bio

@Z3RO180: None I'm afraid. Though Lobdell did say at SDCC Superman panel that with his taking over the title in issue 13 and Action Comics being set in present day from issue 13 that it would mark the fact that the Superman family books are becoming more tightly knit. Once Superboy finishes whatever current storyline he's on, theoretically he would be available. But nothing's been confirmed yet. We'll have to wait and see.

@Lvenger:DC need too hurry up and do a crossover wih superman and the rest of the super family cuase a cross over was like the first thing they did with batman.

#24 Posted by Lvenger (21835 posts) - - Show Bio

@Z3RO180: Well Batman is DC's focus at the moment unfortunately. And I do agree. Even Green Lantern's getting a family crossover before Superman. Pretty unfair in my book. Though I am looking forward to it.
