Haven’t picked up Superman #700 yet? Well, not only are you missing out on the much-publicized prologue of “Grounded” (and a charming retro story by Dan Jurgens), but also text-heavy sneak previews of the future of the rest of the Superman family of books — Action Comics, Supergirl and the incoming Superboy.
The latter isn’t starting until November, but there’s plenty of lingering questions regarding how Conner Kent will fit into the DC Universe as a whole post-Adventure Comics, post-”New Krypton,” post-War of the Supermen and post, well, everything else. Jeff Lemire’s comments from #700 are reproduced today on official DC Universe blog The Source, with Lemire sharing a few enticing upcoming character guest spots: The Phantom Stranger, members of the Teen Titans, Batman villains and a potential Superboy/Supergirl team-up. Lemire reveals that he’s in close contact with new Teen Titans writer J.T. Krul, and, perhaps most intriguingly, hints that Superboy will be confronting his feelings for his “sort-of cousin,” Lori Luthor. Action Comics #892, shipping on Aug. 25 (exactly two months from today, for calendar-minded types), features a 10-page Superboy teaser story by Lemire and artist Pier Gallo.
