DC Comics Solicits Spoilers: Superman and Metroplis in the DCnU in Superman #5

We at Comics Nexus know that reading solicits can be hazardous to the avoiding of spoilers in comics, so in our continuing effort to endeavor to help make your comic reading as enjoyable as possible, we’ll be taking a look at Marvel and DC’s solicits each month, and posting those with spoilers separately for those with interest… and so those of you who don’t want to know can properly avoid these.

There is a malignancy in Metropolis that is ruining the city, and its name is Superman! The aliens who have been attacking The Man of Steel these past few issues unite to purge the Earth of Superman! The worst part? The people of Metropolis seem to agree with the aliens!

Well, we knew aliens were hated in the past in the DCnU thanks to Action Comics, but this is certainly news.  Metropolis seems entirely behind Superman in Action… and they’re supporting other aliens?  Mind control or propaganda?  We’ll find out in Superman #5!
