A Marvel writer is coming to DC to write a brand new Superman story at the publishing house Action Comics Title that will reportedly feature a “darker and scarier” version of long-standing villain Bizarro.
As reported by Popverse, Thor And war of stars Comic book writer Jason Aaron takes on the Man of Steel in his upcoming appearance on DC’s Action Comics with a story that pits Clark Kent’s Superman against some of his most famous villains. While he has a lot planned for the story, Aaron spoke at the Thought Bubble comic festival in England about his plans for a darker, more serious version of Bizarro, the infamous “reverse Superman” that Clark has fought for decades underestimated by many comic readers. “I want to tell a story that showcases what I love about these characters but hopefully does something you’ve never seen before,” Aaron said. “When you look back and read these Bizarro stories from the 1950s, you feel sorry for Bizarro. It just says, ‘Look how stupid Bizarro is.'”
Bizarro first appeared in a 1958 edition of Superboy before becoming a long-time adversary of Superman when he took on the role of a twisted version of Superman who lacked the sense of responsibility and justice that Clark Kent embodies, making him a villain. Bizarro is essentially a failed clone of Superman. He only speaks the opposite of what he actually means and is unhindered by Superman’s greatest weakness, kryptonite, which strengthens and heals him.
According to Aaron, fans’ perception that Bizarro is a bumbling villain who lacks intelligence is largely taken from 1950s comics featuring the villain, in which he was frequently portrayed as such. However, with his interpretation he hopes to shed new light on the character and make him appear much darker in the hope that readers will take him more seriously than in his previous appearances.
Despite his big plans, however Action Comics will be Aaron’s first attempt at writing a successful Superman story Doctor Strange The author feels nervous at the idea of adapting such a beloved character. To calm his nerves, Aaron is said to have sought out someone else Superman Writer Mark Waid to give him some security so he could create something that fans of the character would respect and enjoy.
Action Comics #1061 will be available from DC Comics on January 9, 2024.
