    Wow...so the Bendis takeover really is happening.

    -6 issue Man of Steel weekly
    -Action Comics continues with issue 1001. Will cover Clark's daily planet life
    -Superman relaunching with a new #1, going monthly
    -All of this written by Bendis alone
    -Clark's adoptive parents are on one of the covers with Jon, are they back?

    Normally I'd be annoyed at a single writer getting both books, and I was hoping Bendis would bring someone new to handle whichever book he wasn't going to be on, but this is still an improvement over what both books have going on right now.

    So I'll take it.

    Bendis also has a major miniseries coming to shake up the status quo for the Kryptonian hero.


    And here's the cover art for the mini, which at first glance looks like it'll be something of an origin story.





    "The Man of Steel story will debut a huge new villain, a blockbuster villain who connects deeply to Superman’s origin story and to his birthright," Bendis revealed. "We’re going to dig in very hard, this is one of my goals, to be a additive to Superman as possible. The characters we debut right away, including this new villain, will send ripples of horror across the entire Superman family and beyond!"
    So something to do with Superman's origin.

    I think that's a young Clark.

    On second thought, that makes a lot more sense. Also the interview says the 6th issue of man of steel will bring some of the biggest status quo changes to the characters since crisis..I find that hard to believe after everything that happened since 2011 lol, but we shall see!

    So, as always, top artists to carry Bendis dead weight while he "shocks" us with nonsensical, ridiculous reveals that "no one saw comming" (basically because it makes no sense at all), all filled with juvenile and unfunny jokes and pleanty of annoying "bendisspeak". I forsee a divorce (or, at the very least, a break up) in the future. And someone else will take over for Superman. (did I miss any of his troupes?) I wonder who Lex Luthor will call a "fat cow".

    Peace

    Wow, two books + a mini series sounds like a lot. But I don’t hate Bendis as much as people on this forum do, so I will just wait and see. I have Supersons so I don’t have to worry about Jon

    Lame, if Bendis doesn't work then he'll gut the entire franchise. Giving this much power to one person is never a good thing.

    I can't lie, I'm kinda worried about no mention of Jon in this interview or the covers. Hopefully Jon is on the covers of the 5th or 6th issue of man of steel.

    Damn, this actually looks cool - him citing Superman #400 doesn't hurt, or Shaner getting involved. If nothing else, it's FANTASTIC to see this kind of force thrown behind Superman again.
    You can follow me on Twitter or Tumblr, if more of my opinions sounds like something you'd like.

    Bendis said he's not getting rid of anything from the Tomasi/Gleason and Jurgens runs.

    Jon isn't going anywhere.
