Superman’s New Fortress of Solitude

The second issue of DC Entertainment’s “DC Nation” comic book/magazine (available at comic book retailers at a cover price of $0.25 and free via digital download) contains our first look at Superman’s New Fortress of Solitude as designed by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Ivan Reis.

With all the twists and turns so far in Brian Michael Bendis’ work on Superman, the writer’s most controversial move may just be where he’s placing the Fortress of Solitude. After the Kryptonian getaway in the Arctic was demolished by Rogol Zaar in the MAN OF STEEL miniseries, Bendis and series artist Ivan Reis decided to establish a new Fortress far away from its frigid, snow-covered origins and into an even more remote and mysterious locale – the Bermuda Triangle.

I really thought it was about time that they moved away from the crystal tech, but having read Superman #1, seeing it it play out, and it looks awesome.

I’m loving the Bermuda Triangle angle! It makes great sense. Kudos to Reis and Bendis!

I do like the shapes Reis gave the exterior design and how rather than just having criss-crossing crystals there is the appearance of an actual structure. I always liked that in the Donner movies the Fortress was something more mysterious and meditative rather than being kind of a Batcave in the snow. But in retrospect I wish the interior was something a bit closer to what we saw in Jor-El’s lab where there are floors and it looked more like the crytals were a component part for a form of actual tech rather than kind of being a snow palace.… Read more »
