Clark Kent quits from his job at The Daily Planet, which will be featured in Superman issue 13, the latest Superman comics issue by DC Comics, which will be out on Wednesday, October 24, 2012. Kent is Superman‘s alter ego, and has been working as news reporter in that company since his debut back in 1938.

As noted at USA Today on Monday, October 22, 2012, Clark Kent quits his daily newspaper job as part of the new twist created by new Superman DC Comics writer Scott Lobdell, who also wrote Red Hood and the Outlaws, the new DC Comics superhero team title which was launched as part of The New 52.

“This is really what happens when a 27-year-old guy is behind a desk and he has to take instruction from a larger conglomerate with concerns that aren’t really his own,” Scott Lobdell told the paper, who was also nominated for Favorite Writer award in the Comics Buyer’s Guide Award in 1997.

“Rather than Clark be this clownish suit that Superman puts on, we’re going to really see Clark come into his own in the next few years as far as being a guy who takes to the Internet and to the airwaves and starts speaking an unvarnished truth.” Lobdell added, noting that it is not the only twist in the Superman issue 13.

Superman is arguably the most powerful person on the planet, but how long can he sit at his desk with someone breathing down his neck and treating him like the least important person in the world?” Lobdell explains further, emphasizing that Kent is more likely to start the next Huffington Post or the next Drudge Report.

Meanwhile, Lobdell noted that Superman will be pushing his power to the limit in this Superman edition, along with a new Kryptonian threat that acts as a prelude to the “H’el on Earth” story line. The writer said that “H’el will be a pretty horribly tragic character” and will be worst than other villains including as Lex Luthor.
