Beginning in December, both titles will tell the story of how the Batman of Tomorrow is determined to change the future by seemingly eliminating Jonathan Kent before he can do something unspeakable.
The solicitation for Superman #38, by writers Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason and artist Ed Benes, seems to indicate Batman will bring in reinforcements in the form of his friends from the future:
With no other choice left, the Batman of Tomorrow brings in the Titans of Tomorrow to take on today’s Teen Titans—as the life of Superman’s son hangs in the balance! See the return of future Superman Conner Kent, Wonder Woman Cassie Sandsmark and Bart Allen Flash in the final battle of this epic crossover.
This story continues from current events unfolding in the Detective Comics storyline “A Lonely Place of Living.” Tim Drake escaped containment following his abduction by Mr. Oz, and he came face to face with a future version of himself who rules Gotham with an iron fist.
The Titans of Tomorrow were created more than a decade ago by Geoff Johns and Mike McKone during their run on Teen Titans. They’re the future versions of young heroes who killed their mentors to become a new kind of Justice League. This will be the official return of not just the Titans of Tomorrow, but also Conner Kent, Cassie Sandsmark and Bart Allen since the start of Rebirth.
The Batman of Tomorrow has already determined the timeline has been altered between the present and their future. Tim Drake doesn’t know Conner Kent, but we will have to see if this will signal the return of his friends.
Arriving Jan. 3 from DC Comics, Superman #38 is written by Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason, and illustrated by Ed Benes. It will feature a standard cover by Ivan Reis and Oclair Albert, and a variant cover by Jorge Jimenez
