Reply Subj: I Think That Bendis Was Great For The Marvel Universe, Is Anyone Going To Miss Him? And This Does NOT Mean The End For Marvel.

This might be (Oh heck, I'm pretty sure that it is or will be.) an unpopular opinion on this board, but I'm kind of sad that Marvel will be Bendisless for at least a year. I think that the big problem with Bendis was that he was just overexposed and on too many darn books. That, and he works really well with certain characters and certain types of books. Daredevil, Alias, Scarlet, etc. I don't think that he's a good fit for team books or for writing characters like Thanos. He could still do good work. Overall though, he obviously brought a lot to the Marvel Universe, and they got quite a bit from him. He left a legacy (Although surprisingly, for a guy who's been there for nearly two decades, he really hasn't created THAT many new or long-term characters. Especially considering the fact that he killed off dozens and dozens of established characters.), and I would have liked to have seen his future plans for his books. I AM glad that he's moving on from Spider-man, as he's had more than his say at this point. So, if they kept Bendis to one or two books (And maybe keep him away from big events.), I really don't think that there would be any problem.

But I have read some articles that claim that this is another sign that Marvel is going downhill, and I just don't see it. I do think that this is certainly a loss for Marvel, but it's hardly an end sign, and Marvel will go on. Especially after all of these movies, which seem to be where the money is these days. And there's also Jason Aaron, who could very well be the new Bendis of the MU. I wish Bendis well, and part of me is disheartened by this. Bendis didn't always do good work, but he definitely contributed, and he definitely loved the characters. So, here's to Jason Aaron.

Bendis only cared about his characters and his favorites, pissed on everything that came before him, never gave a single thought to existing continuity, and poisoned decades worth of existing heroes for his own plots. He was horrible for Marvel and their willingness to let him jump from one corner to another of their universe just spread the bile and poison around. He is the chief reason that there is no more continuity in the 616. On top of it all, he spoke as if the comic medium never existed until he arrived.

Good riddance to bad things. My sympathy to DC.
