He was one of the greatest heroes of comics’ Golden Age—a square-jawed colossus with a child’s optimistic spirit. Then a great crisis came that destroyed his world and erased his adventures from history.
But even during the grim and gritty era that followed, this force of pure goodness continued to shine through the gloom like the bolt of lightning that strikes whenever young Billy Batson says the magic word…
Then, in 1987, the celebrated saga of the orphaned boy with godlike powers began anew. Under an all-new creative team, DC’s Captain Marvel was reimagined as a 15-year-old teenager—one who is fated to grow up much faster than he’d hoped.
Arrayed against him are some of the most menacing villains the world has ever seen: Dr. Sivana, a scientific genius as evil as he is intelligent; Captain Nazi, an Aryan übermensch bent on building a new American reich; and Black Adam, a 5,000-year-old tyrant with the same powers as Captain Marvel and the cold-hearted ambition to rule the world!

The smash-hit Rebirth of Superman continues, from classic Superman writer Dan Jurgens and artists Tyler Kirkham, Patrick Zircher and Stephen Segovia.
Lex Luthor says he’s a hero. He’s even taken to wearing the Superman “S” on his armor. And so far, though he’s unable to trust him, Superman can’t find any evidence that Lex is anything but what he claims to be.
But for the mysterious alien warrior who calls himself the God Killer, evidence isn’t necessary. He’s been granted a vision of the future where Lex ascends to Darkseid’s throne on Apokolips and crushes Earth beneath his heel. For the terrible crimes he is destined to commit, the only sentence can be death!
Now Superman finds himself in the unlikely position of having to defend his greatest enemy from certain death...even if it means enduring the wrath of the God Killer himself!
Can Superman possibly save Lex from overwhelming odds? Or would the universe be better off if he let the God Killer complete his mission? Collecting ACTION COMICS #967-972.

Vandal Savage can afford to be patient—he’s immortal, thanks to fragments from a comet he came into contact with more than 40,000 years ago…a comet that he has since spent eons and spilled blood trying to bring back to Earth. A comet that, should he reclaim it, will grant him untold might.
Savage’s patience is about to pay off. Through his operatives, he’s taken Superman’s powers—and, indirectly, his secret identity—to siphon the collective strength of the Justice League and generate the ultimate tractor beam. As the beam draws Savage’s long-lost comet all the way back to Earth, unsuspecting souls bearing the immortal’s genetic signature are suddenly infused with maddening might, while their “father’s” already-incredible power exponentially increases.
Only a handful of heroes, led by Wonder Woman and a depowered Superman, stand between Savage and his comet, and soon even they won’t be enough—that is, unless Superman taps into a deadly element from his past to deny his immortal adversary a future of eternal power.

Author Kami Garcia (Beautiful Creatures) and artist Gabriel Picolo, the creative duo behind the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller Teen Titans: Raven, take you on a journey of self-discovery and acceptance, while reminding us the value of true friendship--especially when life gets wild.
Garfield Logan has spent his entire life being overlooked. Even in a small town like Eden, Georgia, the seventeen-year-old with green streaks in his hair can't find a way to stand out--and the clock is ticking. Senior year is almost over. If Gar doesn't find a way to impress the social elite at Bull Creek High School, he will never know what it's like to matter. Gar's best friends, Stella and Tank, can't understand why he cares what other people think, and they miss their funny, pizza-loving, video game-obsessed best friend.
Then Gar accepts a wild dare out of the blue. It impresses the popular kids, and his social status soars. But other things are changing, too. Gar grows six inches overnight. His voice drops, and suddenly, he's stronger and faster. He's finally getting everything he wanted, but his newfound popularity comes at a price. Gar has to work harder to impress his new friends.

After Revelation and Relativity comes a grand Finale! Desperate times called for mad measures. Facing checkmate in his latest grand game of cosmic chess, Thanos took himself off the board - violently. Yet for the paramour of Death, oblivion is so often temporary. Now the Titan is back -- but the galaxy has been ravaged in his absence. Annihilus, lord of the Negative Zone, is stronger than ever and harnessing the godlike power of Adam Warlock to wage genocide across the posiverse. Only a handful of heroes, and one or two villains, still stand. Will those few that remain choose between two evils and ally themselves with Thanos?

There is an imbalance in the universe. And, since his latest return from oblivion, Thanos himself feels... incomplete. Now the so-called Mad Titan would put both wrongs right.
