Reign of the Supermen #454: Jonathan Morris' Space Cop Superman
Source: Courtesy Jonathan Morris (2008) Type: Fan-made
As promised, here is the third (of 3) designs by good-friend-of-this-blog Calamity Jon, a Superman that would have grown up in the 30th century DCU, ergo a costume more in line with those of the original Legion of Super-Heroes. Those ceremonial ropes at the left shoulder are slightly militaristic, not to say fascist (the high collar and epaulets too), while retaining the circus strongman aesthetic of Siegel & Shuster's original. Did he join the Science Police? Without a Superboy way in the past to inspire the Legion, is he instead the first superhuman to join the SP, inspiring others to do the same? Would this be a "Space Precinct" comic with various super-powered rookie cops (Gim Allon, Colossal Boy, eventually joined in the actual books). Perhaps not as evocative as yesterday's Phantom Zone Superman perhaps, but I do love that popping chain. Nice work, Jon!
