WHY BENDIS PREFERS WRITING SUPERMAN TO BATMAN
“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.

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.”
