DC Comics Announces Creative Team For ‘Steelworks’
‘Steelworks’ will see actor, Michael Dorn, who originally voiced Steel in Superman: The Animated Series’, return to the role in a rather unexpected way…
Earlier today, DC Comics announced the creative team for the newly announced series ‘Steelworks’. The series was teased when the first wave of ‘Dawn Of DC‘ titles were announced, though no creative team were said to be attached to the title… until now.
‘Steelworks’ will see actor, Michael Dorn, who originally voiced Steel in Superman: The Animated Series’, return to the role in a rather unexpected way… Dorn will write the highly anticipated ‘Steelworks’, which will feature artwork by Sami Basri. Here’s a look at the cover for #1 by Clay Mann:
Here’s the official synopsis from DC Comics:
The Metropolis of the future is here today, but can it survive a terrorist who’s out for revenge against its builder, John Henry Irons—a.k.a. Steel—and his company, Steelworks…and who possesses secrets that could undo everything John has worked so hard to build?
While John’s professional life is firing on all cylinders, his personal life is even better, as his on-again, off-again relationship with Lana Lang might be back on, permanently. Now he must decide whether it’s time to give up being Steel once and for all. But does John even know who he would be without his superhero identity? How does the other Steel—John’s niece, Natasha Irons—feel about his momentous decision? And does any of that matter if Steelworks crumbles around him when he lacks the superpowers to fight back?
Basri is a fantastic artist and is best known for his recent work on the Harley Quinn series. Though Dorn is not specifically a comic book writer, it’s clear that he has a passion for the character and history with him. With that said I am excited to see Steel in a solo comic series.
‘Steelworks’ is expected to release June 2023, which is seemingly close to the 30th anniversary of the character.
