According to a report at DCComics.com on Thursday, February 21, 2013, Batman/Superman will tell the definitive story of how Superman and Batman met in the DC Comics – The New 52 universe. The last time the two superheroes were seen together was in Superman/Batman series, which premiered in August 2003.
“Working in comics, almost every project you do for DC or Marvel deals with these amazing characters that are so much fun to work with. But, wow, Superman and Batman? That kind of lifts your hat and spins it around in the air a bit.” Greg Pak told USA Today during the announcement.
“It is a real thrill, and it’s particularly a thrill because we’re being given some real leeway to do some really important storytelling with these characters. It really defines some great things and to depict some really key moments for them.” Pak added, who also wrote various stories for Marvel Comics, including X-Treme X-Men.
“We’ve been given the incredible opportunity to show these two icons meeting for the first time at this very early and raw stage in their careers. Neither one of them has ever heard of the other guy.” Pak explained further, noting that Batman/Superman is “an exciting place to discover who these guys are.”
The first 25 chapters of the earlier Superman/Batman DC Comics series was written by Joseph Loeb. Ed McGuinness was the illustrator of its #s 1-6, 20-25, and the Annual #1.
