Villains Month Previews: Darkseid And Cyborg Superman Take Over


evil bannerThe Trinity War has ended and the heroes of the DC universe are about to face a threat greater than they could have ever imagined. The Crime Syndicate has found their way out of Earth Three and into the New 52. Before evil reigns supreme in Geoff JohnsForever Evil event, we get treated to Villains Month and the reintroduction of some of the meanest and nastiest baddies DC has to offer. We’ve talked a lot about Lobo the past few days, but other characters get a chance to shine as well. Two bad guys getting the spotlight this coming Wednesday is Darkseid and Cyborg Superman.

Darkseid was the first villain the Justice League had to go up against when the DC Universe was relaunched. He seemingly appeared out of nowhere to terrorize the fresh faced heroes. Justice League #23.1 will see the origins of Darkseid explored in an issue written by Greg Pak with art by Paulo Siqueria. MTV had the first look at a few of the interior pages.

Cyborg Superman will have a different identity when he gets his origin story revealed in the pages of Action Comics #23.1 by Michael Alan Nelson with art by Mike Hawthorne. Hank Henshaw will no longer be the mechanical Superman doppelganger. This Cyborg Superman will have a more sinister origin relating to Krypton and Brainiac.

What do you think about our first extended look at Villains Month? Will you be picking these issues up?

For Darkseid, Lord of Apokolips, you conform or die. Now born into his realm is an anomaly who looks to challenge that. A trickster, who will go to any length to survive even if it means sacrificing worlds to do it—leading to an Earth shattering confrontation between The Man of Steel and a Dark Lord.
