Will Superman Become A Yellow Lantern This August?

Since the dawn of the Rebirth era, the Superman family of books have absolutely been on fire, restoring the Man of Steel and his related to characters to their former glory that some readers thought the New 52 simply lacked. And, from what we can tell, they won’t cool off anytime in the foreseeable future. In fact, just this week, we found out that Big Blue and Lex Luthor are set to confront Mr. Oz over in Action Comics this August and, that very same month, his eponymous title will take full advantage of the crossover potential that comes with being a part of the DC Universe.

You see, this summer, Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason intend on calling back to their days of working on Green Lantern Corps by getting Superman mixed up with this guy named Sinestro. Perhaps you’ve heard of him. And while the creative team and publisher are holding their cards close to their vest, we can’t ignore the fact that Superman appears in full Sinestro Corps regalia on the cover art solicited.

Sure, this could be some stylized misdirection as is often the case with cover art, but let’s not rule out the possibility of Clark putting on a yellow ring at some point. In recent years, Supergirl became a Red Lantern and Superman himself became a Green Lantern over in the Smallville Season 11 comics, so it’s not out of the question for him to gain a new accessory in this continuity, albeit temporarily. Plus, you have to admit that you’re kind of wondering what the action figure would look like, aren’t you?

Anyway, here are the official solicitations for August’s issues:
