This July, a new but familiar Man of Steel will be entrusted to protect our planet.
On July 13, Superman: Son of Kal-El will debut to replace the current Superman monthly title. Written by Tom Taylor (Nightwing, DCeased, Suicide Squad) with art by John Timms (Young Justice, Harley Quinn), the new ongoing monthly series will feature Jonathan Kent, protecting the Earth as the new Man of Steel.
And Comic Book Resources…
DC is replacing its main Superman title with a new series headlined by Jonathan Kent titled Superman: Son of Kal-El from Tom Taylor and John Timms.
Superboy will headline his very own DC ongoing series in the publisher’s Infinite Frontier era in Superman: Son of Kal-El from writer Tom Taylor (Nightwing, DCeased, Suicide Squad) and artist John Timms (Young Justice, Harley Quinn). Superman: Son of Kal-El will replace DC’s Superman title, currently written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Sean Lewis, with art by Scott Godlewski and Sami Basri.
As the son of Superman, Jonathan Kent will see to the protection of Earth. The former Superboy replaced his father as Superman in DC Future State series such as Future State: Superman of Metropolis, Future State: Superman/Wonder Woman and Future State: Justice League. Jonathan is also currently appearing in Superman and Action Comics.
And it’s kind of what I wanted.
And I believe I called this one…
Also, maybe a relaunch of SUPERMAN with a new #1 after SUPERMAN #32. And have Jonathan Kent take over being Superman at that point, which seems to be the larger plan.
So maybe the “5G” plan, just done a bit differently.
I could go for that if that’s the plan. Get onboard SUPERMAN with yet another new #1, and with a new Superman in Jonathan Kent. And a possible July launch for this.
If any of this is to come to pass I suppose we’ll know more in the next couple of months.
And called it to the month.
I guess you get lucky sometimes when you guess all the time.
Either way, I got a new Superman comic to read. And I like John Timms’ art.

On sale July 13
Jonathan Kent has experienced a lot in his young life. He’s fought evil with Robin (Damian Wayne), traveled across galaxies with his Kryptonian grandfather, and lived in the future with the Legion of Super-Heroes, who were intent on training him for the day his father could no longer be Superman. There is a hole in the Legion’s history that prevents Jon from knowing exactly when that will happen, but all signs point to it being very soon. It’s time for the son to wear the cape of his father and continue the never-ending battle as a symbol of hope for his home planet.
Oh, and I guess I now have Joëlle Jones’ WONDER GIRL to look forward to, and now Tom Taylor’s SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL too.
And July is going to be a super-good Superman month for me.
SUPERMAN '78 starts on July 27th.
ICON AND ROCKET launches on July 27th… so a Superman-like character.
And now SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL on July 13th.
And countdown until the inevitable Jonathan Kent Superman movie.
And I kid… maybe.
