What this secret is is anyone’s guess. Taylor has commented in his social media posts that while there have been many guesses, no one has come close yet, which makes this all the more intriguing. As for what we do know about Adventures of Superman: Jon Kent, the series comes after Taylor’s Superman: Son of Kal-El with Taylor telling earlier Newsarama that the upcoming six-issue limited series was being rebranded “for a specific reason we can’t talk about just yet”.
“Something very exciting is happening Adventures of Superman: Jon Kent we won’t reveal that until there are a few issues,” Taylor said. ‘It’s very exciting; sorry for being so mysterious.”
The series, which comes from Taylor and Clayton Henry, will pit young Superman against Ultraman. The Superman of Earth-2, Val-Zod, will also play a major role in the series.
“I couldn’t be happier that Jon Kent is headlining the iconic Adventures of Supermansaid Taylor. “It’s a real testament to the fantastic fan response to Jon as Superman. This series will be one of the most action-packed books I’ve ever written, and Jon will be tested more than ever.
