Clark Kent makes a major life change in new ‘Superman’

The Daily Planet has a new job opening.

In Superman issue 13, the Man of Steel’s alter ego, mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent, quits the Metropolis newspaper that has been his employer since the superhero’s earliest days in 1940.

But that’s just one of many plot points of note in the new issue, available digitally and in comic shops Wednesday. Superman pushes the limits of his powers, Clark sees a disturbing text message regarding Lois Lane and her new boyfriend, and a new Kryptonian threat is also introduced that will begin a crossover story involving the stars of Superboy and Supergirl.

“I wasn’t going to test the waters. I was just going to do a cannonball in the Super-verse,” new Superman writer Scott Lobdell said.
