Understand the lore and impactful story behind Reign Of The Superman the Official Synopsis

Reign Of The Superman the sequel of Death of Superman

“Reign of the Supermen!” was a multi-part storyline published in alternating Superman titles from June-October of 1993. The story followed events that first took place during the “Death of Superman” storyline, as well as the follow-up story-arc “Funeral for a Friend”.

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 culminated in the three-part Green Lantern story-arc “Emerald Twilight”.

  3. Superboy: If Superman was raised by The Kardashians 
  4. Steel (John Henry Irons): Humanity and Heart that Superman brings to the show

 

In addition, “Reign of the Supermen!” introduced two long-standing super-hero characters, John Henry Irons, who would goes by 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.

Bustle via the original source stated that, Okorafor said, “[Shuri is] an African young woman of genius level intelligence who is obsessed with technology and has traveled spiritually so far into the past that she’s seen Wakanda before it was Wakanda. The Ancestors call her Ancient Future. And she’s super ambitious. What do I love about her? Alllll that and more. She’s a character in the Marvel Universe who really sings to me.”

The official synopsis for the series from Marvel is: “Shuri is happiest in a lab, surrounded by gadgets of her own creation. She’d rather be testing gauntlets than throwing them. But a nation without a leader is a vulnerable one — and Shuri may have to choose between Wakanda’s welfare and her own.”

Will you be picking up Shuri when it hits stores? Be sure to let us know in the comment section below. This Shuri comic will be relased this October.

Chinese internet conglomerate NetEase has debuted the first two Marvel superhero comics aimed at the Chinese market. According to a report from Technode, the two comics, Warriors of Three Sovereigns by artist Gunji and Cyclone by artist Keng, were developed under the supervision of Marvel.

“The editor of Marvel Comics participated in the creation of the two heroes, so it’s fair to say they are Marvel’s first two official Chinese superheroes,” said a NetEase spokesperson, presumably referring to Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski, though they may know him by his Chinese name, 吉田明. “These characters will have various connections with the Marvel Universe, including the infrastructure of cities they live in, like Stark Industries advertisements.”

The comics, geared toward modern Chinese culture, star young protagonists. In Warriors of Three Sovereigns, a college student faces off against an ancient tyrant, while in Cyclone stars a female architect with wind-based powers.

To me fictional stories are a deep message that are an expression of the writers, illustrator’s and everyone involved in the whole process of creating a comic book. Comic book writers and illustrators such as Stan Lee and Jack Kirby who work for Marvel Comics have created amazing characters and stories such as Spider-Man, Iron-Man, Thor, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Hulk and many more have led a legacy in all forms of entertainment and now their iconic characters that were once on paper are now in all types of media such as cartoons, television shows, anime and of course movies. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is amazing and this is just the start.  (Iron-Man) 

Also on the DC Comics side amazing Jim Lee a Korean-American comic book artist, writer, editor and publisher who has collaborated with a number of amazing people in the comic book industry to write and draw about the iconic superheroes and super villains such as: Batman, Robin, Bat Girl, Bat Wing, Superman, Supergirl, The Joker, Sinestro and Nightwing. (Nightwing is my favourite hero of all time)

Black Panther (2018) has become one of the highest grossing films, the movie has made approximately $704,000,422 Shuri created this version of the Panther Habit along with the one later used by her brother. While T’Challa opted not to use this suit, deeming its gold color and design as being too conspicuous for his taste, Erik Killmonger would come to claim it after his duel with T’Challa, for his reign as the new Black Panther, believing T’Challa to have perished in their fight. Upon his second fight with T’Challa, the two combatants would utilize their respective suits.

The suit is used by the main antagonising character Erik Killmonger, he obtained his suit from Shuri the Princess of Wakanda who initially created the suit for T’Challa but he didn’t want to use it. Erik Killmonger obtained this Golden Jaguar Habit which was based on the comic book’s character’s connection to leopards in the comics. The suit is known as The Golden Jaguar and has similar powers to Black Panther’s Vibranium suit such as Wakandan technology, suit manifestation, suit regeneration, energy absorption and kinetic energy plus.
