The Justice League take on a new member, the mysterious Tomorrow Woman. She seems like a great addition to the team but who is she? Where does she come from and what dark secret lurks in her past?
Superman once again proves himself incorruptible. He could enslave humanity with his power but instead seeks to protect it and even serve it. Superman’s power never gets to his head and that’s what makes him so special. The Ultimate Man is wrong in his assessment that we need more Supermen because as Wayland and Ultimate Man prove, power corrupts.
John Henry Irons was trapped under a building during the Doomsday Massacre. Upon realizing that Superman is dead, he seeks to carry on his legacy in a suit of literal steel and protects Suicide Slum, a neglected neighborhood in Metropolis. Suicide Slum is overrun with gangs brandishing highly power “Toastmasters,” guns that Irons himself help develop. Now he’s committed to taking them off the streets!
The 1980s and 90’s were a rough time for Supergirl and her fans. For starters, she was killed in Crisis on Infinite Earths wiped her from existence. The editorial mandate was with each super-powered cousin, dog, cat etc. Superman loses a bit of his uniqueness. He is no longer the last survivor of a dead world, but one of many and so, the Superman family was shrunk to one.
However, this didn’t stop writers from trying to bring back many of the Super-Family adjusted so that they were not also survivors of Krypton, Superboy was a clone of the Man of Steel, Krypto was a puppy rescued by “Sooperman’s number 1 fan” Bibbo and Supergirl was a shape-shifting alien called the Matrix who dated Lex Luthor Jr. (who was actually the original Lex posing as his own son.)
