When Byrne came on Superman in 86, there is no doubt that Supes was the undisputed top dog in movies, media, recognition, etc.

But that was a long time ago.

Since the 90s, certainly Batman has been more successful in media and merchandising. So why isn't the "grand" Bendis treatment and hoopla therefore going to Batman, the big kahuna?

Certainly, Batman is somewhat more in Bendis' wheelhouse considering his street level runs w/Daredevil and Jessica Jones.

I know Bendis chose to do Superman, but I wonder if he or DC ever considered him doing the bip hoopla treatment there. And if not, why not?


“I said to Dan, if Superman is available sometime in my contract, I want to take a shot at it. I think he thought I was going to ask for Batman… but I think Batman is well taken care of. Not that Superman isn’t, as well — the Mr. Oz story is phenomenal — but one was pulling to me more. Dan said, ‘We’re gonna start a new direction with Action #1000. What a great place to land you and say, this is part of the legacy and how much we believe in it.’ I would literally have to start writing for DC the day after I finished writing for Marvel, but we could do it.”
