DC Announces H’el on Earth
Since the New 52 reboot, DC has had two major crossover events. The first was The Culling, which spanned Teen Titans, Legion Lost and Superboy. The second was Night of the Owls, which spanned every single series connected to Batman. Now, DC is preparing for their third crossover which will revolve around the Super family.
The arc, called H’el on Earth, will span the 14th issues of Superman, Superboy and Supergirl. In it, H’el will be tracking down and taking out the members of the Super family one by one. Presumably this will also be the first time Superboy and Superman meet, so that will be a thing.
I am looking forward to this arc. It’s only three issues so it will be fairly easy to get through and since they are released week after week I probably won’t forget as much as I usually do. Also, any chance I get to see Superman get beat the fuck up makes me happy, but from the covers DC released it looks like Superboy may be getting the brunt of the beating. Here, see for yourselves.
