The Super Sons are back! In December, DC Comics launches a new series, Challenge of the Super Sons, that will be a digital-first series from Peter J. Tomasi, and Jorge Jimenez.
Damian and Jon—the assassin-trained son of Batman and the boy-next-door son of Superman—tackle their greatest threat ever: the deadly DOOM SCROLL. Whoever (whomever? We can never tell) has their name inscribed on this ancient and magical parchment will be killed post-haste. Now, the evil powers-that-be have written the names of the Justice League on the deadly doc, and Superboy and Robin are the only ones who can save their dads from certain doom! The catch? No one can know it was the boys that saved them.
“Stories about Jon and Damian at this time in their lives allows me to tap back into those early years of my own life of being a crazy kid, while also allowing me to mine the fertile ground of my own son’s current adventures,” said Tomasi in a press release from DC Comics, “which in turn helps keep me tapped into the general zeitgeist of today’s youth and what they’re going through and thinking about. Jon and Damian are so different—the angel and the devil on your shoulder so to speak—with each one having such a distinctive backstory and perspective that the drama between them is organic and damn easy to bring to life on the page. Best of all, it’s a helluva lotta fun!”
Challenge of the Super Sons debuts digitally on December 14, 2020.
