In fact, the mystery on the fate of Lois Lane and Jonathan Kent is one of the most interesting issues raised in the miniseries Man of Steel. But, little by little, the mystery is revealing itself. In the last issue, in fact, seen the father, kryptonian, Superman, Jor-El, to accompany his nephew Jon in a tour around the universe, followed by the same Lois.
And the words made and leaked by Bendis make sense that the two characters are ready to return to the protagonists on the heads of the Man of Steel.
Meanwhile, debuts today in the USA, Superman #1, the relaunch of the series on the Man of Steel signed by Brian Michael Bendis, with art by Ivan Reis.
For the occasion the same Bendis was interviewed by Newsarama.
At the u.s. site the writer said: “The two heads of Superman, on which I will work to have the storyline completely different, but they will cross and will expose each other. On Superman, there will be great adventures with the big villain, while on Action Comics, we'll see what revolves around the world of Clark Kent: from what happens at the Daily Planet, until you get to what happens on the streets of Metropolis”.
And going back on the removal of Lois and Jon Superman Bendis said: “What has happened to these two characters is something very great for the entire DC universe. But the answers to all of these things you will find on Action Comics“.
At the center of the two heads of Superman there will be several elements had already been introduced by Bendis on Man of Steel and that will play a more central role, starting from the Phantom Zone.
“There will be kryptonian, and various monsters of all kinds - said - I also spoilerato the presence of the Nuclear Man, the villain of the fourth film about the Man of Steel. And then there will be all of planet Earth, and all the superheroes existing. Superman will not be able to trace his family, and he will feel alone without having the answers, but all this will not last for the entire series. People think that Lois will never return back. But it is not so. He returns with a bunch of new stories. And also Jor-El will play a central role”.
But Bendis, through the site Comicbook.com would have also made some statements about the large number of new characters introduced in Man of Steel:”it takes time before the new character reveal his complexity-he said - all of this requires pages and pages, albi whole sometimes. In short, if you go to see all of the characters to whom you are related more neither one of them is revealed fully in the first story in which he appeared”.
The words of Bendis fit like a glove with one of the character introduced in Man of Steel, among the most discussed of the miniseries. We are talking about the foreman of the fire brigade Melody Moore, whose special relationship with Superman would have worried some fans, scared of a possible crisis of the marriage between the man of steel and Lois Lane.
But Bendis has also shown his satisfaction for “the interest that the readers are having in respect of the new villain and the new characters of the Daily Planet. All of this pushes the story forward, and makes us see different situations than in the past. Especially inside the Daily Planet - has closed - we are seeing things that, if you were inside of an editorial board, we would have interest to follow.”
In short, many irons in the fire there is a lot of really. All we can do is continue to read the new adventures of the Man of Steel written by Brian Michael Bendis, starting from Superman #1.
