DC has released a first look at an inked page from artist Gene Ha for Action Comics #9.

Grant Morrison brings us an alternate universe stand alone story featuring an African-American Superman who has to take on the likes of -- Superdoom!

We previously saw an Africa-American version of Big Blue in Superman/Batman #25 as well.

Parallel worlds come to the forefront of DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 “Second Wave,” with titles such as EARTH 2 and WORLDS’ FINEST exploring the adventures of heroes on alternate Earths. ACTION COMICS #9 sets up the multiverse with a standalone story of a Superman from another Earth, who must fight a monster from yet another parallel world. But this isn’t just any monster; it’s a Superman surrogate known as Superdoom, twisted into an unstoppable agent of evil.

Regular artist, Rags Morales, returns for Action Comics #10 in June.
