DC Comics newest high-flying hero, Kenan Kong, is a Chinese teenager from Shanghai who finds himself infused with the powers of the Man of Steel. Written by acclaimed graphic novelist Gene Luen Yang, with art by Viktor Bodganovich, the new monthly title New Super-Man is part of DC's "Rebirth" initiative.
Ahead of this month's debut, here's an official preview of the first four pages of New Super-Man #1, which introduces our hero Kenan Kong and the DC Universe's version of metropolitan Shanghai, which appears to have its own super-problems. It also seems that when we first encounter Kenan, he is... well, a bit of a jerk.
Take a look:
