Superman Trailer Arrives
A foul-mouthed struggling screenwriter who moonlights as a car thief. An obscenely wealthy rapper completely disconnected from the real world. A dying cosmonaut on his way back to Earth.
Los Angeles is being toyed with by destructive forces that repeatedly find the city through time and swallow it whole, and those three are the only people able to save it – if they survive the fanatics who live in the hills, National Security Agency agents, and the horrors that lurk in the Pacific Ocean.
America’s Got Powers #4

With the most insane scheme ever devised, the fate of the world is at stake. Can Orange annoy the bad guys into submission?
Number 13 #1 The young bionic amnesiac known as Number 13 searches for answers and his creator, in a future world that’s been brought to its knees by the vicious Monstrum Morbus plague.

They dub him “Thirteen” and invite him to join their group—and one of them knows exactly what horrible purpose he was built for!
