Superman to Get New Comic Book Costume

DC Comics is giving Superman a slight costume upgrade.

This April, with the events of “Superman Reborn” shaking up Superman’s world, the Man of Steel will come out with a costume upgrade… namely the return of the red boots.

ComicBook.com has the first details…

The cover for Action Comics #977, by Andy Kubert, presents a tableau of Superman’s history – including the iconic Neal Adams cover to Superman #233, the opening salvo of the fan-favorite “Kryptonite Nevermore!” storyline. It’s perhaps worth noting that shortly after the death of the New 52 Superman, ComicBook.com speculated that “Kryptonite Nevermore!” could provide some insight as to the nature of his death, and possibly even the nature of his very being.

Also represented on the cover: Lois and Clark’s wedding from Superman: The Wedding Album, and the birth of Jonathan Kent from Convergence: Superman #2, indicating that following whatever changes are made to the character and/or his backstory in “Superman Reborn,” he still experienced those events. His first appearance at the Daily Planet in his Rebirth duds appears to be one of the other images.
