DC Comics has announced that Batman scribe, Scott Snyder, and DC co-publisher, Jim Lee, are teaming for a new ongoing Superman series that kicks off in 2013.

According to Snyder, ” I’ve been developing this story, it’s epic in scale, and I’ll be setting Superman through challenges that will shake him to his core. Jim [Lee] is great at capturing those absolute moments of a character and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be working on this.”

Unlike Batman, where Scott Snyder got to build the New 52 Batman from the ground floor, this time the writer has over a year’s worth of Superman tales and world building that could cause some problems – especially with what Grant Morrison has done in Action Comics.  From the comments made at the panel, and from the various sites reporting on the event (some of them having the complete story posted the moment the panel began), it seems like the creative duo will not only examine Superman’s place in the New 52, but also a celebration of the 75 years the character has been around, which sounds a lot like what Grant Morrison has done with the character over the last several years.

The one thing that wasn’t announced was the title of the book, but with a big Superman movie getting ready to land into theaters next year, all money is on The Man of Steel.

    Here’s hoping one of the first things they do is get rid of his new ridiculous costume.

      I thought Jim Lee was the guy who gave us the new costume.

      I’d like to actually see Superman punch someone and it actually does something. It seems like everything Superman has done in the new 52 has been pretty much useless and that eevery villian he meets sees him as an ant.
