    It looks like Paul Ryan and Brett Breeding reused George Perez and Jerry Ordway's cover to ACTION COMICS ANNUAL #2 (1989).

    SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL is reprinted and repackaged in Mattel's Superman Action Figure Toy Series.

    ACTION COMICS ANNUAL #2 (1989)
    DC Comics


    I mentioned the basics of the following observations on the CBR Message Boards.... I noticed that Perez’s cover for AVENGERS/JLA #4 (comics.toonzone.net) is similar to the Perez/Ordway cover for ACTION COMICS ANNUAL # 2 (image.milehighcomics.com) .

    Each cover shows an angry Superman, wearing the remains of his costume. His stance on the one cover approaches being a mirror image of his stance on the other cover. (Supes is of course leaning a bit more sideways on the earlier cover, and the position of the knuckles of the lower hand in each picture is different.) Both covers have Superman on an alien terrain, with a starry background. Lightning is emanating from Thor’s hammer on the cover of AVENGERS/JLA # 4, and energy is emanating from the weapon on the cover of ACTION COMICS ANNUAL # 2.

    I also see similarities between the cover of AVENGERS/JLA #4 and the Curt Swan/George Klein cover of ACTION COMICS # 329 (image.milehighcomics.com).

    Each of the two shows an angry Superman, headed for a major showdown, with a shield on his left arm, and an ancient-type weapon in his right hand. (I’m not saying Perez had ACTION # 329 in mind, and I know a sword isn’t a hammer. I just thought it’s worth mentioning because I’m not sure how many other covers have shown an angry Superman standing in the center of the scene, brandishing a weapon and a shield, with the villain hidden from view.)

    Thanks for reading this!
