Popverse's top stories of the day


This summer, get ready for a city under attack by not just one Lobo, but multiple Lobos — some so bad, in fact, that even DC’s self-proclaimed “Main Man” might find himself having to admit that he’s just a little bit nervous about what’s about to happen. How can this happen? Don’t ask the Man of Steel, because he’s wondering that himself as part of the summer crossover inside the Superman comic books, titled ‘House of Brainiac.’

As unlikely as it may seem, there’s even more happening beyond an invasion of Czarnians this May, as General Zod and his off-spring continue to get up to no good in their individual titles, the Fifth Dimension gets overrun by an impossible bad guy in World’s Finest, and some truly classic material gets listed for collection this summer. Set your sights on Metropolis this May, and keep reading to find out what’s happening in DC’s Superman family of titles that month.
