Jim Lee is among the masters of variant covers. Therefore, it wasn’t surprising to see his art for the Steelcase Blu-ray special version of Man of Steel turning out to be a stunner. Lee illustrated this special edition cover, and the coloring was done by fellow artist Alex Sinclair.
The cover displays a famous scene for the fans of Superman. Superman is standing and the planet Krypton is shown exploding in the background. We can also see an escape pod carrying a young Kal-El which is zipping through space towards its destined encounter with Ma and Pa Kent in Smallville, Kansas.
The 2013 movie Man of Steel launched the DCEU and happened to be Zack Snyder’s first film in the long-term cinematic universe. Snyder went on to become the chief architect of the DCEU and directed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as well as Justice League before exiting the latter owing to a personal tragedy.
Man of Steel is the saga of Clark Kent’s journey of self-discovery after leaving Smallville post the death of his adoptive father. Clark battles General Zod and his Kryptonian crew when they try to seed Earth with genetically manipulated Kryptonians. The film received mixed reviews from the audiences upon its release.
