Eclipsed By Forever Evil Spoilers: How A Classic DC Comics Character Became The New 52’s NEW Cyborg Superman In Action Comics #23.1 (Villains Month)

Last week we brought your attention to Supergirl #23 and its stunning reveal of the identity of the New 52’s Cyborg Superman. Well, it is NOT Hank Henshaw.

Action Comics #23.1: Cyborg Superman explains how that character became the current foil of the Superman Family. It may be a bit eclipsed by this week’s Forever Evil #1 and its 5 big spoilers.

However, we’re still interested in Cyborg Superman and how he / it came to be the DC New 52.

Spoilers below.

Supergirl’s father, and Superman’s uncle, Zor-El is Cyborg Superman. And here’s how it happened.

Such revealing images in the preview:

I was surprised DC gave away that origin in its preview pages since many readers wanted to know how Zor-el became Cyborg Superman.

The rest of the issue was contrasting between Zor-el’s “life” and his Cyborg Superman persona’s “life”. One was compassionate the other ruthless. Will that compassion bleed into Cyborg Superman?

Overall, the issue was entertaining.

Thanks for reading. All feedback welcome. 🙂
