Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here’s the archive of the moments posted so far!


At this point in the story, Superman has gathered all his closest friends to the Fortress of Solitude to protect them, because all of his villains have suddenly became sociopaths. Even the loser villains are killing people now, so now that Luthor, Brainiac and the Kryptonite Man are on the scene, Superman is scared spitless.

While he is hunkering down, getting ready for the impending siege, the Legion of Super-Heroes visit him one last time, and they have along with them a time-traveling Supergirl, who had just recently died in the comics.

So with that in mind, read the following and you can see why Superman is crying on the last page (which is the last page of Superman (Vol. 2) #423)…(click to enlarge)…
