I finally found out about H’el in the new Superman comics for the nu52. Now, I remember hearing that someone (maybe George Perez) wanted to do a Bizarro story, but got a choke order done on it thanks to the weird “If Grant Morrison says you can’t use somebody, you can’t; don’t ask questions” so I assumed that H’el was suppose to be Bizarro without being Bizarro in the (poorly named) “H’el on Earth” storyline. Especially since he’s pale white, has a fucked up face, and his attacking the House of El (aka, Superman, Supergirl, and Superboy). Hell (no pun intended), I even thought this was suppose to be the continuation of the plot point where Supergirl stated that all Kryptonian clones got murder crazy.
But I was so wrong.
H’el is fucking Raditz. That’s right; Raditz from DragonBall Z.
