"Superman Unchained" Comic Book Index


  • Superman Unchained #1 (June 12)
    Scott Snyder, Jim Lee & Dustin Nguyen, Scott Williams
    When thirteen satellites fall from the sky in one day, the logical suspect is Lex Luthor - even though he's still locked up in prison! But a stranger question remains: If Superman didn't stop the last satellite from falling, who did? There's a mystery hidden where even Superman can't see it - Can The Man of Steel drag a decades-old secret into the light?

  • Superman Unchained #2 (July 10)
    Scott Snyder, Jim Lee & Dustin Nguyen, Scott Williams
    The technological terrorists called Ascension are growing bolder with every attack, creating problems only can solve - and that's with help from the world's greatest detective, Batman! But the mystery that's really got them both worried is the unknown figure that's been shadowing Superman! Also, Jimmy Olsen takes center stage as Metropolis reacts to an event that's shaken the city to its core!

  • Superman Unchained #3 (August 21)
    Scott Snyder, Jim Lee & Dustin Nguyen, Scott Williams
    Superman's found out the secret the U.S. Army tried desperately to keep from him - or more specifically, that secret's found him! But with hijacked drone aircraft tearing Tokyo apart, there's not much time for mystery... and with Lois Lane on the case as well, what's in the darkness will come to the light!

  • Superman Unchained #4 (November 6)
    Scott Snyder, Jim Lee & Dustin Nguyen, Scott Williams
    Jimmy Olsen is strapped into some kind of operating chair, with his hand pinned down on a side extension and a very unpleasant-looking contraption descending onto that hand. At the control of the contraption is Lex Luthor, brandishing paper puppets of various DC characters and asking Jimmy how he thinks his heroes will die. When he gets to Superman, Lex says the craziest thing about his death is how soon it will happen. Superman, meanwhile, is where we left him: in Tokyo with Wraith fighting off the Ascension-controlled Russian drones. Now we learn that the drones fire red solar bullets that weaken Superman, but not Wraith. As they fight and ultimately repel the attack, Wraith teaches Superman a few things about his powers and they talk about what Wraith meant when he said (end of last issue) he'd soon have to kill Superman. If the answer is really just that Wraith blindly follows orders (my charitable definition of duty in this kind of context), I'm disappointed. While all of this is happening, Lois discovers that the mysterious man who rescued her on the coast of Nova Scotia is in fact an Ascension defector, who begs her to take a crystal shard he says Ascension doesn't know he has and that means everything. He also tells her that Superman will soon be dead just before a group of Ascension agents arrive and take her into their custody. Eventually, Luthor tells Jimmy how Superman is going to die: Jimmy is going to kill him! And, finally, Lois Lane learns that her father the general is responsible for Ascension.
