It's sure to be a best seller

DC Comics "Rebirth" is supposed "to reaffirm to fans the companyís commitment to readers," according to publisher Dan Didio.

An ... interesting way to show that commitment is the book New Superman, "a comic that is set in Shanghai and whose main character is a 17-year old Chinese teen who finds himself with Supermanís powers."

Wow. I can't think of a more interesting superhero comic than one whose setting is on the other side of the planet in one of the few remaining authoritarian regimes, and whose protagonist represents a whopping 1.2% of the total US population.

But hey, what do I know. This is the industry which could care less if its creators treat those who sustain it like what your dog just excreted in the backyard.

But at least their SJW bonafides aren't in any danger.
