The famous Black Superman suit features a black design and silver “S” (No cape is included ) This suit is a very infamous part of Superman’s history. Similar like Spider-Man’s Venom costume, it’s the simplicity and change of colour as a “black” variant of something so colorful (blue, red and yellow) which is iconic resonates with comic book fans.
Superman supporters expected to witness Superman’s black costume in Justice League 2017 live action movie, not because “it was in the comics,” but because there was a significant Easter egg posted on Henry Cavill’s Instagram .Warner Bros and New Era released a licensed hat for Justice League based on this actual design, which was awesome merchandise for the movie.
The storyline is significant for not only resurrecting the DCU’s most famous super-hero, but also because it chronicled the destruction of Coast City at the hands of Mongul and the Cyborg Superman. While this event is only tangentially tied to the Superman mythos, its reverberations had lasting effects which culiminated in the three-part Green Lantern story-arc “Emerald Twilight“.
In addition, “Reign of the Supermen!” introduced two long-standing super-hero characters, John Henry Irons, who would adapt the code-name Steel, and a new Superboy, who was in fact a partial clone of both Superman and Lex Luthor. Both of these characters would go on to star in their own ongoing titles.
