CW’s The Dreamer Makes Her Comic Book Debut In ‘Superman: Son of Kal-El’ #13
by Olly MacNamee
It’s not too uncommon for DC Comics’ characters created beyond comics to eventually find their way into them. Take Harley Quinn for example. Or even Red X, both debuting in animated shows. And now we have our latest, with Dreamer debuting Superman: Son of Kal-El #13.
“It’s the dramatic DC Universe debut of Dreamer! When every hero on Earth is threatened by Henry Bendix’s machinations, it’s a race against time for Dreamer to warn Superman before it happens! But will this mysterious new ally’s premonition become a nightmare for Jonathan Kent?”
Originally a character on CW’s Supergirl, played by Nicole Maines, she will be ushered into the DCU by Maines who co-writes the issue with regular scribe Tom Taylor. With art by Clayton Henry, regular cover (and 1:25 variant cover) by Travis Moore and variant cover by A.L. Kaplan.
Taylor had this to say about working with Maines and Dreamer’s debut:
“I’m so excited to work with Nicole Maines to bring Dreamer from the screen to the pages of Superman: Son of Kal-El and to the DC Comics Universe. I want to thank all the people at DC who have championed Dreamer and who recognize the importance of this powerful trans superhero in this time.”
“Jon Kent and Nia Nal are two characters that have a lot in common, both as superheroes with the weight of the world on their shoulders, and as young people with impossibly big shoes to fill. Weaving their stories together for Superman: Son of Kal-El with Tom was a complete pleasure, and there is only a little pun intended when I say that Superman and Dreamer make for a brilliant new Dream-Team.”
Look out for Superman: Son of Kal-El #13, out Tuesday July 12th from DC Comics
