I hope that someday soon there will be a follow to the Superman 78 series. It could be a run that could go up to five years of great story telling. There are so many villains that Reeve’s Superman could face for the first time. Darkside, Metallo, Parasite, Bizarro, Doomsday, Conduit to name a few. Each adventure could be twelve issues long. One issue released a month. I hope it happens. The way that Superman 78 concluded leaves the door open for more adventures of Christopher Reeve’s Superman
