A missing chapter in Superman’s long history will finally be told. This April, when DC publishes the landmark 1,000th issue of Action Comics, a separate 384-page hardcover tome will contain a previously unpublished Superman comic from the Man of Steel’s original creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.

On Tuesday, DC announced Action Comics 1000: 80 Years of Superman, a new collection set for an April 19 release, that will celebrate the magazine’s eight decades (including the years it was renumbered and retitled Superman: Action Comics). The book will be stacked with material, including essays from writers like Tom DeHaven (It’s Superman!) and Gene Luen Yang, and some of the best Action Comics issues ever from writers like Otto Binder, John Byrne, and Grant Morrison.

But the biggest attraction will be a never before seen Siegel and Shuster comic, “Too Many Heroes,” a 12-page Superman story unpublished for almost 80 years. And it was only by chance the comic is now seeing the light of day, thanks to legendary writer Marv Wolfman (Crisis on Infinite Earths).

In a statement, former DC editor Paul Levitz said DC used to give out unused, one-of-a-kind material as souvenirs on public tours of its New York City offices. It was a different time, before such items could sell for thousands at Comic-Con. “Back when DC did regular tours of the New York office, it was common for fans to get original art that would have been otherwise disposed of as a tour souvenir,” Levitz said.

It was fate that the Siegel and Shuster comic would be given to a young Marv Wolfman when he attended a tour. “It’s incredible to think that Marv not only rescued this unpublished story, he then went on to become one of DC’s most prolific writers, and shared the story with DC to publish as part of this special new collection.”

“Too Many Heroes” will be illustrated by the Joe Shuster Studio, so rest assured the tale will be seen the way it’s meant to be seen.

Besides “Too Many Heroes,” the book will also contain a number of published Action Comics issues. Highlights include:

  • Action Comics #1 and #2 by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster
  • Action Comics #242 by Otto Binder and Al Plastino (features the debut of Brainiac, “The Super-Duel in Space”)
  • Action Comics #252 by Otto Binder and Al Plastino (features the debut of Supergirl, “The Supergirl from Krypton!”)
  • Action Comics #554 by Marv Wolfman and Gil Kane (“If Superman Didn’t Exist…”)
  • Action Comics #584 by John Byrne and Dick Giordano (“Squatter”)
  • Action Comics #662 by Roger Stern and Bob McLeod (“Secrets in the Night”)
  • Action Comics #0 by Grant Morrison and Ben Oliver (“The Boy Who Stole Superman’s Cape”)

Action Comics 1000: 80 Years of Superman will be released on April 19.

Thor’s electrifying arrival to Infinity War’s climactic battle in Wakanda might’ve just been the most thrilling moment in a movie full of thrilling moments, but it left some fans puzzled. How did Thor, Groot, and Rocket know where to go? Over the weekend, Infinity War’s directors revealed the answer, tying up a small plot hole that, to be honest, didn’t really need to be tied up.

A prevailing theory about time travel being used in Avengers 4 to defeat Thanos was just deemed a “possibility” by one Marvel director, and yes it totally involves the Quantum Realm.

In an interview published by Huffington Post with Peyton Reed, the Ant-Man and the Wasp director confirmed that the film’s post-credits scene left Scott Lang totally trapped in the Quantum Realm. He doesn’t even have an enlarging Pym Particle disc with him like in the first movie. So with the rest of Team Ant-Man turned to ash by Thanos’ snap, Scott’s only option might be to plunge right into a time vortex.

It’s not fair to blame the mustache Henry Cavill had for Mission: Impossible — Fallout for ruining Justice League, mostly because Superman’s weird CGI lip honestly didn’t even crack the top ten of that movie’s problems. But, it turns out that Fallout’s director Chris McQuarrie tried to help Justice League out.

A new superhero in the Arrowverse just suited up for the first time, and while we all really hope it’s Ruby Rose’s Batwoman, there’s really no way to know for sure. Here’s what you need to know about the latest Arrow Season 7 spoilers.

Late on Monday night, Arrow lead actor Stephen Amell — who plays Oliver Queen, aka the Green Arrow, on the show — teased over Twitter that someone just suited up for the first time. “Watching someone try on a superhero suit for the first time never gets old,” he wrote. Considering Ruby Rose’s casting as Kate Kane/Batwoman was only just announced earlier this month, it’s possible that Amell is talking about her.
