Dublin’s GPO is dramatically saved from a falling tower in a new comic starring Superman.

In the dramatic action, a flooded Liffey causes Dublin’s landmark to collapse, which then collapses towards the General Post Office on O’Connell Street.

However, the Man of Steel rushes in just in time.

Issue #10 of Superman: Son Of Kal-El is illustrated by Dublin artist Cian Tormey, the first Irishman to draw a continuous Superman book in the character’s 84 years, according to The Irish Times.

In the comic, written by Tom Taylor, the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane dons the cloak of Superman and confronts Henry Bendix, president of the fictional nation of Gammora.

“Henry Bendix’s plans are now clear,” the problem description reads. “Gamorra’s president will not stop until he is in complete control. He has now sold his strategy to other dangerous regimes.

“Only Superman and his allies stand in the way of Bendix’s dark vision for the world…a world where superheroes will be substituted, discredited, and even destroyed.

“A world where heroes are replaced by agents of those ruthless enough to seize power. The uprising has begun!”

As the story progresses we learn that a weather bomb struck Ireland, causing the Liffey to flood and the tower to collapse.

Superman rushes in to get little girl Cara and her father who are about to be crushed under the collapsing roof.

In an Instagram post, Cian wrote: “Just an Irish artist taking Superman places he’s never been before – thank you @tomtaylormade for making this possible.

The series recently caused controversy when Jon Kent (son of Clark) came out as bisexual after kissing reporter Jay Nakamura.

“It’s come to me,” Tormey told the Irish Times in January, “and I feel like a lot of people never realize it – some comics just aren’t made for me.

“They are not aimed at us. Back when I was younger it seemed like all comics were for me and I read everything. Now there is so much variety in the stories being told, even within these archetypal characters, that we take for granted.

“So, Superman is gay or bisexual now, maybe that’s not for you. We had our Superman and that Superman isn’t going to change, this is a new story for newer, younger readers and it needs to reflect the diversity of that audience.”
