Superman & Lois Lane

DUNZO!!!!

7/18/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Maria and Arnold ... J.Lo and Marc Anthony ... and now Superman and Lois Lane are officially KAPUT ... TMZ has learned. Seriously.

0715_superman_ex

Sources at DC Comics tell us ... the company is rebooting the Superman comic book series in September -- with a brand new Superman #1 -- in the hopes of creating a new starting point for fans with more modern, relevant story lines.

And there are some HUGE developments ... including the fact that Lois and Clark are NOT together. In fact, we're told Lois has a new boyfriend.

But perhaps even more shocking -- NO MORE RED UNDERWEAR!!!!  Instead, new Superman (see above photo) will sport an all blue bodysuit with his trademark red cape.

Still, we gotta ask ... Is that Kryptonite in his pocket ... or is he just happy to see us?

Lame. EPIC fail. Whomever at DC is making these crack-addled decisions, need to be fired.

Reset the history to pre-1985, when it actually worked. THAT was the "re-set" that they were patching ever since.

Is DC even still relevant? Seems to me they wrote themselves into a hole, and now expect readers to jump onboard with an all-new Superman (with knee-pads!) and a new bf for LL (that's Lois Lane, not Lana Lang).

Doesn't the fact that DC is desperate enough to reboot Superman answer that question for you? How desperate do the charts in the boardroom need to be before they're sitting around brainstorming how they are going to salvage the Superman franchise.

Only the comic book nerds are going to appreciate this, normal people don't care and if they do, they know Clark as being with Lois Lane. Breaking them up isn't going to attract new readers, its going to repel them. The people running DC Comics are so out of touch with real people, they are like a pestilence, otally staining the brand. These are the same people who brought you Green Lantern and made it so bad, it was unwatchable because of how they redesigned and changed everything, the same people who screwed up the Wonder Woman pilot and the same people who designed that hideous Wonder Woman costume, redesigned costumes for all the characters yet Warner Brothers keeps promoting them after failure upon failure. No normal people will support this, only the geeky comic book people who everyone makes fun of -- even DC Comics staff makes fun of their readers so anyone who buys any of these will get exactly what they deserve: a fool and his money are soon parted.

DC or it's owners have sailed the ship of Political Correctness and current political landscape and come up with a Superman that is worthy of being ignored...

Anything that happens in a comic book is subject to change some months later. Remember the headlines years ago about Superman's death? Wait, there he is on the cover, he's not dead.

No red shorts? Big mistake. People will just call him "Blue Buns" from now on.
