Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… Bizarro…?!?

Superman’s imperfect clone is returning to comics in the latest issue of Action Comics, as superstar writer Jason Aaron begins his three-issue run as Action writer alongside artist John Timms. It’s not just the first time Aaron has written the Man of Steel — something that he shares below made him more than a little cautious — but it’s the start of a year-long initiative at DC called Superman Superstars, wherein Action Comics has a rotating group of writers throughout 2024, each telling their own story featuring the Last Son of Krypton.

To mark the occasion(s), Popverse has the opportunity to speak to Aaron about writing the iconic character, his DC comic book past, and where his head is at as a writer at the start of 2024.
