By Jeff Trexler– In March 2008, Grant Morrison’s homage to Siegel and Shuster appeared in comic shops on the very same day that the Siegel heirs recaptured half the original Superman copyright. Now Morrison is set to work his shaman’s magic once again in the September relaunch of Action #1–and this time, the Siegels could lose everything.
Morrison’s upcoming Supergods holds the key to understanding why. For an explanation and a sneak preview of Morrison’s new book, click below. A mysterious appeal, Joe Shuster’s super-swastika and the final crisis of the legal multiverse–this one has it all.
The final pieces of the DC relaunch are revealed over at Hero Complex, and #52 is revealed as the Grant Morrison/Rags Morales ACTION COMICS #1. A whole new backstory for Superman is teased — probably to be spelled out at tomorrow’s Jim Lee/Geoff Johns event for the LA Times. Dan DiDio also gives a new big picture statement.

Previously, teased, the full length video for My Chemical Romance’s “Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)” has just been released, featuring band members in a post-apocalyptic desert chase with a villain portrayed by Grant Morrison. There’s apparently more adventure to come as the band members all have new fantasy personas (think Gorillaz) and a new album called Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. The clip was co-directed by frontman/writer Gerard Way and Roboshobo, and definitely seems to have been storyboarded by a mutant combination of Paul Pope and George Miller, featuring a storyline filled with ray guns, roller skating and vampires.
This morning’s DC news reveal is the return of Bruce Wayne, who was Lost-ed into the time-flux during a big battle with Darkseid at the end of Final Crisis.
