DC has put a lot of effort into their major relaunch of the entire DC comics Universe beginnning in September. One of the characters most affected is Superman--in this continuity, he will be single, Lois will be dating someone else, his parents will be dead, and he will be as much isolated alien as ethical human. For a lot of people, this will be a Superman so unlike the one they've known in the past that it'll seem like a totally different character.
I wish DC the very best of luck with this, but I find myself curious as to why they're embracing a concept of the Man of Steel that seems so different from the concept we saw in the most popular Superman project in the past couple of decades, Smallville. In fact, I wish they had used Smallville's alien-instilled-with-American-values-and-ethics concept as the model for the DCU. The series focused on the "nurture versus nature" argument, coming down strongly on the side of nurture--it was the Kents that made Clark a true superhero, not his alien background.
I had suggested at one point that DC should do a Smallville Season Eleven comic, continuing where the series left off. I still think it would be a great idea--and I have to admit that I find that vision of Clark Kent to be closer to the Clark that I've known than the version I've been reading about in news reports recently.
