Attention superhero aficionados: Here’s an update from ComicsAlliance.com.
Apparently DC Comics has scrapped the expected story for Superman #712, in which the Man of Steel, who is currently walking across America, winds up in Los Angeles and teams up with the Left Coast's newest super-hero, Sharif, a young Muslim. Sounds very cool. Why was it shelved? Officially here’s the statement:
DC Comics determined that the previously solicited story did not work within the 'Grounded' storyline. However, Chris Roberson, will be back for the final two issues of Superman's year long walk across America. As we near the conclusion, catch up with Superman next month as he makes stops in Portland and Newberg, OR."
Be that as it may: given the current geo-political state of the planet, could there be a better time for the ultimate American icon to join forces with a super crime fighter named Sharif?
OK, who’s got the kryptonite?
