John Henry Irons – the DC superhero known as Steel – is enjoying a resurgence, thanks to both the Dawn of DC, and the “Steel: Engineer of Tomorrow” story arc currently in Action Comics, and next month, just in time for the characters 30th anniversary (first appearance: Adventures of Superman #500), actor and science fiction icon Michael Dorn, picks up the reins in his comic book writing debut in Steelworks, a six-issue limited series featuring art by Sami Basri (Catwoman, Harley Quinn).

CHAPTER ONE: CITY OF TOMORROW – FORGING THE FUTURE!
The Metropolis of the future is here today, but can it survive a terrorist who’s out for revenge against its builder—John Henry Irons, a.k.a. Steel—and his company, Steelworks…and who possesses secrets that could undo everything John has worked so hard to build?
While John’s professional life is firing on all cylinders, his personal life is even better, as his on-again, off-again relationship with Lana Lang might be back on, permanently. Now he must decide whether it’s time to give up being Steel once and for all. But does John even know who he would be without his superhero identity? How does the other Steel—John’s niece, Natasha Irons—feel about his momentous decision? And does any of that matter if Steelworks crumbles around him when he lacks the superpowers to fight back?
