September means more than the end of Summer and the turning of the leaves, particularly for Superman as he faces challenges in Superman #25 and Action Comics #1025.
A colossal new threat to Superman, the planet Earth, and the DC Universe arrives on the scene in this extra-sized anniversary issue! This unique warrior called the Synmar was created to represent an entire alien race. He’s trained his entire life—but for what purpose? As the antithesis of everything Superman stands for, Synmar launches his aggression toward Earth—to destroy the Man of Steel and every being on the planet! This is what Superman was born to protect us from!
“I can’t wait for fans to check out this issue,” said writer Brian Michael Bendis. “Ivan Reis returns for this issue and this is some of his best work I’ve seen yet. Along with that, we’re introducing a new surprise or two and a new threat, Synamar.”
“Synamar comes from a part of the galaxy so alien and so remote that his connection to Superman would seem impossible at first. But it’s very real and bad news for the planet Earth. Synmar is something superman has never faced before; it’ll take all the experience and lessons Superman’s learned throughout his entire life to stop Synamar from destroying everything he’s sworn to protect.”
Meanwhile, Action Comics #1025 welcomes readers to the “House of Kent.” Superman’s truth is out there—and now it’s time to rewrite the rules! The Invisible Mafia has taken advantage of the chaos that’s descended on Metropolis, so the House of Kent is going to talk to them in a language they’ll understand. It’s a new adventure featuring Superman like you’ve never seen him—or them—before, in a story guest-starring Supergirl and two—yes, two!—Superboys!
Superman #25 and Action Comics #1025 will be available in comic book stores and digital retailers, including ComiXology using our affiliate link on September 8, 2020.
