Spoilers below for this week’s issue of Superman Action Comics #48.
If you havent been following the events of Superman of late, he has been pretty powerless mostly because Vandal Savage has stolen his power. So in the latest issue of Action Comics #48, Superman comes up with the idea to use Kryptonite to burn away his top layer of skin cells that are preventing him from soaking up the yellow sun energy. As you may expect, things don’t go exactly as Superman planned and instead Superman gains a new power.
Instead of his skin cells dieing off, they absorbed the kryptonite, which now gives him the ability to “feel transmissions… energy waves… from all over the world… including signals…”
So what the heck does that really mean? You’ll have to check Action Comics #48 to find out…..
Supposedly Superman may be soon returning to his “normal self” with the upcoming DC relaunch, “Rebirth.”
Nothing ever changes or stays changed in comics…. #FACT
