Fans of Superman will be both pleased and relieved with the news that he's returning to Action Comics in April. For the last I-don't-know-how-many issues of Action Comics, the publication that launched Superman back in 1938, Superman hasn't graced the pages at all. Instead, Nightwing and Flamebird have taken the lead and for issues #890-900, Lex Luthor is the main character. Superman has of course still featured in his other comics, like "Superman" and "Superman/Batman". To mark the milestone issue #900, there will be two fantastic covers.
The first, by David Finch, perfectly represents Superman's return to eclipse Luthor:
The second, by Alex Ross, looks eerily familiar. It's like Action Comics #1 on overdrive.
This isn't the first time the iconic Action Comics #1 cover has received a nod from a later issue. 2003's Action Comics #800 had a cover from the prolific David Struzan (who you may know from his Star Wars and Indiana Jones film posters to name a couple). I think that might even be the man himself in the bottom right corner. Cheeky.
It's not just Superman that can do an impression of himself (there's also Michael Caine) as seen by Spider-Man, Supergirl, Superboy and Mr. Majestic:
You can't touch a classic. In fact, the cover for Action Comics #1 was close to not featuring Superman at all because publishers believed people would think a man lifting a car over his head too incredible!
