What do you get when you combine Twilight and a classic superhero?

The new Superman.

DC comics unveiled its made over Superman in Monday's New York Post. The 72-year-old iconic comic still has his six-pack, but features a brooding, new look that's more reminiscent of Robert Pattinson than Christopher Reeve.

Superman's new look will be featured in DC Comics' "Earth One" graphic novels (to be sold for $19.95), which portrays classic comic book characters in the present day. [pullquote]

"We wanted to tell a story that's hip, sexy and moody," DC Comics' co-publisher Dan DiDio told the Post. "We wanted to show a younger Superman at the early stages of his career, struggling with his identity and his place. He realizes he doesn't belong anywhere and doesn't fit in."
