DC Comics is doing some exciting things with its Rebirth line, but one recent Superwoman twist has left fans pretty upset. So what does the writer have to say about it?

We caught up with Superwoman writer Phil Jimenez to talk about the decision to kill the New 52 version of Lois Lane (the pre-New 52 version of the character is still alive) in a shocking final scene in the relaunched Superwoman ‘book. The run was pitched as following Lois Lane and Lana Lang as they both serve as Superwoman, after absorbing some of Clark’s powers when he was killed (the New 52 version, not the pre-New 52 version still running around. Confused yet?) before Rebirth.

Jimenez promised that death is not the end of Lois’ story, and he said they took this route to both shock readers and play with expectations and the anxiety that Lana faces with this loss. If nothing else, it definitely got fans talking. We also bend Jimenez’s ear on the sexuality of Wonder Woman, a hot top in the comics world.
