Superman may shedding his nice guy image.
The latest issue of Justice League features a storyline that takes a page from the recently released Man of Steel.
In the film, Superman kills someone. The move has sparked some controversy among fans and even was one that DC heads were initially against says screenwriter David Goyer.
But it appears that some of the creative team at DC are getting more on board with the idea of Superman killing someone. In the latest issue, which hits stands today, Superman kills a new hero, Dr. Light.
Superman does indeed take a life. It is in the next issue of Justice League. It is not of his own volition. Apparently the Man of Steel is being controlled by someone else and it’s part of a plot to frame Superman.
Not exactly a new plotline, but the fact that Superman is killing someone twice in one summer could raise a few eyebrows.
Could this be opening up future plotlines in which the Man of Steel breaks his code of not killing his foes?
