If you’re wondering where Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 is at? It appears that the issue is no longer releasing on November 9th as initially planned, when Jon Kent’s coming out was first announced. This could be to the overwhelming wave of controversy his coming out has caused, mostly from everyone and anyone who doesn’t read a comic book. But also the death threats the creators have been receiving in anticipation of the issue’s release. Superman: Son of Kal-El will most likely release the following week on November 16.
