About this item

Genre-defining author Brian Michael Bendis makes his triumphant debut at DC Comics, as an alien being comes to Earth to kill Superman and finish the mission he first started decades ago: destroying the planet Krypton and killing every last Kryptonian! One of the genre's greatest mythologies is turned on its head in Man of Steel! A new era begins for Superman as a threat name Rogol Zaar comes to Earth to put an end to Superman and his cousin, Supergirl. How will the Last Son and Daughter of Krypton survive a threat that destroyed almost all of their kind? As his world comes down around him, Clark Kent must also wonder: what happened to his wife and son, Lois Lane and Superboy? Brian Michael Bendis, the scribe behind some of the greatest comics of all time, including Ultimate Spider-Man, New Avengers and Daredevil, dives headlong into the DC Universe in this precursor to his debuts on both Superman and Action Comics.
