Superman’s got a problem. He killed Doomsday, which–right there, that’s not a very Superman thing to do. But the entire world told him they’d be okay with his murdering somebody this one time, since the Kryptonian hellbeast was sucking the life out of the Earth wherever he roamed, and growing more powerful.

Okay, so Superman does what needs doing. Perfectly understandable. But since then, he’s been having health problems. Superman, we know you’re more of a John Stuart Mill guy, but with your superspeed you could have found time to read Nietzsche and known to be careful of battling monsters, lest ye become a monster.

Alright, let’s gaze into Superman’s abyss and see what gazes also…

Hang on, check out this sweet double-page spread:

Super-Doomsday should know you don’t tug on Superman’s…uh, lapels?

We give your recovery a 6 on that little outburst.

It’s a metaphor for their relationship, right?

No, let’s not end the preview there! We have to know what the trick is!

Okay, so we got permission to preview a little bit more, but it’s not story. It’s a variant cover! Even more fun! Featuring artist Ant Lucia’s DC Bombshells:

This is what we’re fighting for.

Oh, but there’s more. There’s a recolored version of the direct sales cover for the combo pack (that’s the one that includes a digital copy of your comic).

Isn’t that neat? Let’s see it as a GIF!

Dig those crazy eye beams!

Externalize your inner conflict in Superman/Wonder Woman #9, out Wednesday!


Brendan McGinley is editor round these parts when not writing Cracked columns. You can say a neighborly hello to him on Twitter @BrendanMcGinley. But you should probably enjoy his comic, Heist, first .

Crime pays.

Crime pays.

Brendan recently interviewed the Batman Eternal creators about how much fun they’re having and picked Pete Tomasi’s brain about Gotham.

Batman does what Batman wants.

They’re here to make a kickass Batman, and “Everyone Else is Boned.”
