An all-ages comic book about Superman
, his cousins Superboy and Supergirl, and their pets Krypto and Streaky. Despite being published around the time of the New 52
, it's mostly Silver Age
Superman with a new belt. The comic lasted 12 issues.
This series contains examples of:
- Back from the Dead: Lara, though she wasn't dead in the first place; Jor-El managed to send her to the Phantom Zone before the destruction of Krypton.
- Canon Foreigner: Fuzzy the Supermouse.
- Composite Character: Instead of a cyborg, this version of Metallo is like the Kryptonite Man with an armor that looks like the second Pre-Crisis Metallo.
- Lighter and Softer: These comics are this for the Superman franchise.
- Expy: Streaky as shown in this comic is lazy and snarky like Garfield.
- The Mole: Parodied when Lex Luthor gets a job at the Daily Planet.
- Mythology Gag: Lois sometimes calls Clark by the nick "Smallville", like the Lois of the TV Series of the same name.
- Never Mess with Granny: Martha Kent can subdue anyone, even Doomsday, just by yelling at them, slapping them, and grabbing them by the ear.
- Secret Secret Keeper: While Lois doesn't know Superman's secret in the first few issues, later issues imply that she knows, but plays along.
- Shout-Out: Jor-El's costume as a hologram is similar to the Marlon Brando version.
- Spin-Off: To Tiny Titans.
