DC Comics has taken a loop-di-loop in a bizarre little narrative arc which is set to be the genesis of the new Superman, where Superman looks to regain his power he lost in the only way he thinks plausible… Kryptonite Chemotherapy. Yep. You heard right. The thing that makes Kal-El his weakest may be his only saving grace? By extension we suspect being human is a cancerous state of existence. Ah, bit hurtful commentary there, Supes.
The event is happening in Superman #48, and Writer Gene Yang talked with DC All Access host Tiffany A. Smith about it.

That may be the case, as we learn in the just released Superman #48, which finds the Man of Steel taking extreme measures to regain his Kryptonian abilities. In this DC All Access comics clip, Superman writer Gene Yang explains where this unique idea came from, why a powerless Superman still matters, and what it’s like collaborating so closely with his fellow Superman writer Greg Pak.
