DC is Not Killing Superman Again!

Death of Superman

Recent speculation has lead many Superman comic book fans concerned that DC was planning to kill of the Man of Steel… again.

With Clark/Kal-El having left earth in the capable care of his son Jon, also now known as Superman, there were rumors circulating that DC was setting the stage to kill off the older Superman.

The speculation seemed plausible to many, as recent events saw the older Superman ageing, weakened by a recent battle in space, and leaving earth behind to head off to Warworld. Jon’s fears for his father further exacerbated the issue, with the young Superman telling his father that during his time in the 31st Century he’d learned that Superman’s existence seemed to fade from history at this point in his life… and he feared his father’s time was coming to an end.

“Action Comics” writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson took to Twitter to allay the fears of Superman fans saying, “I’ve been hearing from a lot of Superman fans who are scared by all the recent speculation that Warworld is part of some shady, backdoor corporate plan to ‘replace’ Clark as Superman.”

“I don’t know how to easy your worries without spoiling what’s coming, and I can’t do that. But I love Clark Kent as much as you do. Keep reading, and I promise we won’t betray you. Superman is forever.”

Superman is here to stay.

The latest issue of “Action Comics” (#1036) is out now.

Maybe because DC has spent so long squandering the trust of fans and the readership to the point where the idea that they would kick Clark to the curb or kill him off (again) actually seems plausible? Even if it was just to get back in the news cycle for 5 minutes?

@Superman2878, I know how you feel. I feel just as doubtful as you do. Until I see evidence of the contrary, I will not believe them (DC) either.

Allow me to echo what “Superman2878” said, “Why don’t I believe them.?”
I absolutely agree with his sentiment. And here are my thoughts. DC may not physically kill Superman again, but they’ve been “killing him” socially and pop culture-wise throughout the last 10-15years. The evidence exist’s and it’s disheartening. That’s why us Superman-fans have legitimate reasons to worry.

Its like that old saying goes,It’s not that I don’t trust them…. I don’t trust them.

I hear that the 30th anniversary of the Death of Superman story is comming up soon. And I just can’t help but think that they might kill off Superman again on that anniversary.
