Bendis arrival on the character does NOT warrant this kind of fanfare which is duplicating what happened when Byrne came on board in 86.

I'm sort of ok w/Bendis trying his hand at Superman. But there is NO NEED to make a separate 6 issue miniseries to "herald" it. I mean, just takes those six issues and make them part of the monthly comic.

Also, re-numbering SUPERMAN (again) is a pointless deal. This comic started in 1939 and should be given the respect back of it's original numbering.

Hence why they're doing it now. You'll grab the nostalgic Byrniacs and MOS film fans just with the title.

Bendis does better when he doesn't have to regard continuity from previous storylines i.e. he wants the freedom to do what he wants.

Agreed. Superman Vol. 4? 5? Uttterly needless. . .but it will sell. Comic lads can't resist a shiny No. 1.

Because if he blows his 3 chances I'm going to give him, I'll have to drop both titles instead of just one. *Sigh*





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?

Yep. Kind of hard to deny when every news source is reporting the same thing. ;\)
