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.

It wasn't just Bendis. It was Millar too, and Fraction, and JMS, and Austen, and Loeb, and Slott - the list goes on and includes most of the 21st century superstars.
They specialized in "WTF" moments. Daredevil's secret identity gets outed. "WTF?" This couldn't possibly be allowed to stand and anyone reasonable knew it. Daredevil cannot be Daredevil without a secret identity. Foggy and everyone else he cared about would be dead within days if not hours. Matt doesn't have nearly the power needed to protect his loved ones from random attacks. No superhero does. You would have to be pretty darn close to all-knowing and all-powerful. Even Superman couldn't protect Lois 24/7. Secret identities are not optional unless all of your loved ones are super-powered highly trained warriors like yourself. But secret identities are "old school" so they had to go. Except they only went away until the writers got tired of the endless gymnastics necessary to somehow tell stories where Foggy isn't dead yet.
I don't like "WTF" moments. I want the writers who specialize in them to go away.
