Looks interesting... I always liked Parasite and felt he was underused

Parasite rules

Parasite would be a great movie villain. He's very underutilized in the comics though.

However I don't think Parasite should be a main villain and neither should Metallo. They should work under Lex Luthor.

Looks pretty good. I think I liked Parasite best in the Justice mini-series. And his short appearance in All-Star Superman was pretty good too.
The team up between him and Livewire in the animated series was another good one.

Parasite for a movie villain. He could depower Supes and give him a run for his money. I agree he should be a lexCorp experiment gone wrong.

Kuder's art is boss btw. Dude draws epic action scenes

Oh no! It's the Stay Puff Marshmallowsite!!!

Is Parasite a villain who's only a villain because society [frick]ed him over like most of New 52's villains? "Woe is me. I'm a kill people now".

Parasite would be intresting on film but as a henchman... I would like to see Brainiac, Doomsday or Darkseid over Parasite, But it would be nice to see Parasite, Metallo or Bizzaro as henchmen to Lex Luthor...

Parasite would be great in a MoS sequel. Lexcorp tries to duplicate supermans cells that absorb the suns radiation and end up absorbing any for of energy. Boom, done, cash the check lol

I'd love to see Mongul or Darkseid in a MoS sequel.

THIS IS STILL A BETTER REPRESENTATION OF HIM

You're right, of course.
But someone will have a "better" idea that they KNOW will make more "sense."
And FORGET about him being puple. Purple is not a color they allow in the movies.

Anyone else notice the small mention of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster through special arrangement of The Jerry Siegel Family....I hate to be like this but why does "The Jerry Siegel Family" have to be mentioned they had nothing to do with creating superman...ooooh I'm related to someone who created superman I deserve my credit!!!! Bollocks man that just rubs me the wrong way (not the way Gusto is thinking lol) but whatever nothing I can do


/end rant

This isn't his debut he was in the Andy Diggle Action Comics arc in June.

I like the redesign, it grosses me out. Bearing in mind I saw a dead cat being eaten by flies walking down the road today.

parasite looks mean

I just noticed the messed up Supes on the cover. Also Parasite looks freaky in the 4th page.
Volthoom - 9/20/2013, 6:19 PM
On the fence about this one. Maybe I might get it because I haven't gotten a Superman issue this month.
breakUbatman - 9/22/2013, 1:24 PM
Is this not almost the same design as the Earth One: Vol version?
