In a new preview for Superman: Son of Kal-El # 2, Jonathan Kent wears a blonde wig and sunglasses to try and hide his identity as Superman.
In Superman: Son of Kal-El # 2, DC’s new Superman, Jonathan kent, sports a terrible blonde wig to try to disguise herself. In the first issue, Jonathan spoke to Damien Wayne about creating a new identity for himself. It looks like Jonathan will be knocking on Damien’s door in due course, thanks to what happens in the preview for issue two. Having a secret identity is something that most heroes struggle with. In Superman’s case, he ended up revealing himself to the world, which clearly isn’t what’s best for his son.
With Jonathan Kent donning Superman’s cape, will he be able to sustain both sides of his life? Not only does Jonathan become Superman, he also has to enter college. They are two incredibly important stepping stones in Jonathan’s life. According to DC, Jonathan will be forced to step out of the shadows and be in the spotlight as the world’s New Man of Steel. The identity of the ex-Superboy is not as certain as he thinks it is.
AIPT Comics has exclusively released new preview pages for Superman: Son of Kal-El # 2 by Tom Taylor, John Timms and Gabe Eltaeb. The preview features the new Superman wearing a blonde wig and sunglasses. Her disguise is absolutely terrible and painfully obvious. Anyone on the street would look at her hair and realize it’s a wig. It’s no surprise that his identity as Superman was discovered even before he got to college. It looks like Jonathan is being attacked by a mugger, because in the second preview page his white hoodie is ripped to shreds.
Plus, it really doesn’t help that Jonathan is wearing his superhero costume under his clothes. The new Superman should take a page from Spider-Man’s notebook and keep his costume in his backpack. The students standing behind Jonathan don’t seem to be the ones who find out his identity, but are witnesses to the attack that tears his disguise apart. Surprisingly, Jonathan’s secret disguise is even worse than Superman’s original glasses disguise, which is still referred to by fans as a particularly slim way to hide his identity. But Jonathan takes it a step further with the insanely faux blonde wig.
After all this, it looks like Jonathan gives in and flies off with his truck out of embarrassment. He still has a lot to learn and he is realizing it. Jonathan meets his father on the moon and explains what just happened to him. Clark consoles him and apparently hands him some wisdom before descending back to Earth to give Jonathan a surprise. This surprise is none other than a new Superman costume, which marks the start of a new era for the new Superman. Regarding his costumes, but also how he behaves as Superman and Jonathan kent. Superman: Son of Kal-El # 2 will be available August 24 in comic bookstores and digital platforms.
