    1. Hahahaah it’s always delightful to hear your thoughts on these kinds of things as someone who has known “prime” Superman mythos.. What do you think about the recent and official reveal that Superman’s slogan will be changed to “Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow”? 😀

  1. This had me thinking about whether writers are sometimes given the opportunity to write for such an iconic character, one they’ve perhaps long had lots of ideas about, but this is their only opportunity so they have to somehow pack in all those ideas because they may not get another chance, and as a result they fumble their opportunity. It also had me wondering if some are given the opportunity but then see the state the character and world has been left in by the previous writer and think to themselves, “why did run have to fall to me?!?!”

    1. Right? I do tend to think that when these writers are big names in the business, they won’t dare fumble and do all in their power to deliver something to be remembered by. When these big names are announced and they’re active on social media nowadays, you can tell that some of them really want to do something good that will have new and old fans super happy. But man… It’s rough when you notice that these writers are putting forth risky ideas or rushing through the gazillion ideas they’ve had for a while!


  2. Ugh. Looks like fingers in too many pies, and an acute attack of scatterbrain finally got Bendis good. This whole run doesn’t seem to be worth the time. I actually feel sad for Bendis – he worked his ass off for years, and when he finally gets the flagship in recognition of his past work, he goes down with it.

    1. Meh… It has its highs and lows. I wouldn’t really think of recommending his run anymore but he handled things quite originally at first. Then.. it was just a downward slope into oblivion. I assumed fan retroaction, the numerous titles he’s been working on parallel (Wonder Comics and whatnot), and publisher deadlines didn’t help…
