Drawn by Irish artist Cian Tormey, we see Superman hearing about a “weather bomb” in the Atlantic Ocean.

Naturally, the first stopping point is Ireland, where destructive winds of over 100 miles per hour cause the Liffey to flood the streets – and the Spire to tumble downward, crashing into the GPO.

We won’t spoil it too much, but the illustrations are just fantastic.

Taking to his Instagram ahead of the comic’s release, Cian wrote: “Just an Irish artist taking Superman places he’s never been before – thank you @tomtaylormade for making this possible.”

Last year, Superman revealed he was attracted to both men and women.

Jon, the latest incarnation of the iconic superhero, made the announcement in the November issue of Superman: Son of Kal-El comics.

Writer Tom Taylor said of the news: “I’ve always said everyone needs heroes and everyone deserves to see themselves in their heroes and I’m so grateful to DC and Warner Bros.

“The symbol of Superman has always represented hope, truth and justice. Today, this symbol represents something more. Today, more people can see themselves in the most powerful superhero in the world. comic.”
