Equal parts Superman and folk legend John Henry (to whom the name of his alter ego, John Henry Irons, is an homage), Steel will appear in ACTION COMICS #4 – written by critically acclaimed, bestselling author Grant Morrison and illustrated by Rags Morales.”
Is it just me or does this new version of Steel look a bit like the old Hardware? Well maybe not. I do miss the mask covering the whole face thing. At first glance, this version of John Henry is not so much inspired by Superman but seems to stand along side him. Time will tell.
