What's in store for Superman this fall?

DC Comics has some adventures lined up for its superheroes

Superman meets the toughest felines in the universe, and Superboy rejoins The Legion in DC Comics this fall.

Lion-O and the rest of the Thundercats are hurled into the Man of Steel's Metropolis in a one-shot, 48-page comic available Nov. 19.

The 'Cats will be trying to stop their archenemy, Mumm-Ra, from getting another Eye of Thundera in an alternate dimension.

As is usually the case with such meetings, the Thundercats will initially believe Superman is their enemy. Can the Man of Steel survive a blow from one of the universe's most powerful swords? We'll find out.

The comic will also feature two covers from which to choose.

This is the latest in a long line of matchups featuring Superman, ranging from the Incredible Hulk to Bugs Bunny to the X-Men.

Superboy was written out of the Legion, a 30th-century group of teenage superheroes, in the mid-'80s. To many, the Legion has been lame ever since he left, and the heavy sales of "Superboy's Legion" last year proves there's a continuing interest in the character.

A six-part biweekly story line, beginning with Oct. 29 Legion No. 25 ($3.95), will highlight Superboy's return.

Parts two and three will include Darkseid, one of DC's most intriguing and powerful villains.

Two more fall DC highlights include "JLA: Liberty and Justice," an oversize, 96-page graphic novel, and "Superman: The Kansas Sighting," a two-issue prestige format series." Both will be released Nov. 19.
