Love is in the air – or is that just Swamp Thing funk? – for the Young Monsters of the DCU, Swampy makes a second appearance this week in a tribute to his creators, Superman and Son head off into space to save a planet that wants to die, the Man of Steel takes on different roles in a collection of Elseworld stories, Cave Carson no longer has a Cybernetic Eye, Mystik U makes a belated Weigh In appearance, and the Wicked + Divine team takes us back in time to 1923.
The Weigh In is here, but not for much longer, so be sure to vote while you have the chance! (Which, in this specific case, is before 12 AM Eastern on February 11th.)
