The Warworld Saga ends in August, bringing Clark back to Earth

Big Daddy Superman will finish up in space, then return home for a crossover with his son.

The Warworld Saga, which took Clark Kent off planet while his son Jon Kent took over as Superman on Earth, will wrap up this August in Superman: Warworld Apocalypse #1.

Phillip Kennedy Johnson, Brandon Peterson and Will Conrad will present the final battle between the forces of Superman and Mongul’s Unmade Champions.

Superman: Warworld Apocalypse is everything we’ve been building to with the Warworld Saga, with the final battle between Superman and Mongul, between the Authority and the Unmade, and the long-awaited reveal of the real mastermind in the shadows,” said Johnson. “There are some frankly shocking moments in this issue, and some huge reveals that will have long-lasting repercussions in the DC Universe.”

Action Comics #1047: Kal-El Returns is nothing less than the beginning of a new era for Superman,” Johnson said. “After the events of the Warworld Saga, Superman has returned to Earth with new allies but Lex Luthor has his own plans for Metropolis after he sees a great opportunity in the fall of Warworld.  Plans that involve the return of one of Superman’s most classic villains, Metallo.”

And the variants by Szerdy, Parrillo and Leirix:

“What we did for Mongul with the Warworld Saga, we’re doing for Metallo in Kal-El Returns,” Johnson said. “Metallo might be my favorite Superman villain, and I think he’s often overlooked in lieu of the more god-like characters like Mongul or Darkseid. There’s a really scary, complex, interesting version of him I’ve been wanting to show readers for a long time. His origins, his motivations, and his power set are all overdue for a deep-dive refresh, and we’re ready to give readers a Metallo worthy of Superman. Stay tuned for the strongest and scariest Metallo you’ve ever seen.”
