DC will instead release the #0 comics - set before the first issues of its ongoing titles - to mark the year anniversary of the New 52 relaunch.

The publisher is expected to use the issues to expand on pieces of its characters' pasts that are yet to be revealed in the ongoing series.

The #13 issues will instead arrive in October.

Last year's launch has presided over a period of increased comics sales, with DC only recently relinquishing its stranglehold of Diamond Comic Distributors' top ten following the launch of Marvel Comics Avengers vs. X-Men event miniseries.

DC parent company Warner Bros recently won a victory in the ongoing struggle for the rights to Superman with the estates of the character's creators.
