The long, long journey into night begins HERE!
I know you mostly do DC, but is there any chance you can do ASM #1 tonight?
>>101617299I feel like I’m gonna throw up.
So I pretty much missed all of the Mini series Bendis did. Was it any good?
Actually, now thinking about it, I've pretty much haven't gotten to follow comics since I graduated college. What have I missed roughly the past month and a half, both the good and the bad.
>>101617362>DC: We need Superman to be single so that he can be hip and relatable like Spider-Man! Besides, it ruins the character!>Marvel: Here’s Spider-Man and Mary Jane
>>101617358Not really. It was better than maybe his last two years of Marvel work but not enough to really recommend.
>>101617358Jurgans level of quality meh with worse dialogue
>>101617337>the only communication device Clark had to keep in touch with his family is destroyed Wait, when did that happen? And why?
>>101617436That's what scanbro said. It's why I'm hoping someone storytimes it tonight instead of tomorrow morning.
>>101617436>>101617424>implying Renew your Vows has any bearing on canon>implying Slott is good
Thanks for reading.Support the official release at your local comic shop!Detective Comics: >>101617481
>>101617470You realize that Slott's last issue was like, 3 weeks ago, and Spencer's first issue is out today, right?
>YOU NEED TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD CLARK!Why is Martian Manhunter being a dick?
>>101617358It had like 3 good issues 1 half good half terrible 1 terrible and one meh issueAlso Adam Hugues had like a fucking anuryism on the issue he drew half way because WOW the art decline in that one is bad..
>>101617477He has to be aware of his bullshit by this point. Is he just doing self parody ?
>>101617477>the phantom zone...>the earths in the phantom zone>phantom zone...Oh my god he's already starting with this fucking cliche of his and it's only issue one.
>>101617338You faggots don't even know what a truly shit comic looks like, you're sheltered which leads to pedestrian mediocrity.
>>101617402Was the alien zoo not destroyed in the other Fortress or does Superman have random zoos saved at other places?
>>101617440>>101617447>>101617453Wait did he seriously have J'onn go "YOU SHOULD TAKE OVER THE WORLD!"
>>101617424You deserve it for not blowing super sons.
Snyder: Yo, can I bring back MM into the fold?Bendis: lol
>>101617382>>101617395>>101617402>Bendis purposely destroyed the Fortess of Solitude just so he can replace it with his own OC Fortess in the Bermuda TriangleJesus, Bendis really does have to break everything about a character just to replace it with his OCs.
>>101617382What dimension was he gonna say?
>>101617423Wait did a war end Mars now, I can't keep up with J'onn's never ending origin retcons.
>>101617600Congrats, you're driving OC to be a buzzword.
I'm reading through this and all I'm getting are future visions of Bendis leading up to something that'll just cause outrage
>>101617581I bought every issue, what else was I suppose to do?
>>101617618Get other people to buy the issues, discuss it on social media, communicate to writers and DC that Jon is a welcomed addition.>be a shill
>>101617617He’s already poochied Lous and Jon, killed everyone in Kandor, and destroyed the Fortress just to make his own original fortress, and retconned Krypton’s destruction by his OC.We’re just getting started.
This was a decent issue aside from one major thing. Martian Manhunter basically going "lol the world sucks YOU SHOULD TAKE OVER EVERYTHING!" What the fuck?
>>101617613Go to bed, Bendis.
>>101617440"hey so you all made me the leader of the League but the world needs YOU to lead even though you all apparently think im the best leader possible".
>>101617447Did this J'onn come from the Injustice Universe or some horse shit?Pros:>Superman flashing in and out to help people>Reis' Art in generalCons:>J'onn's Characterization>The obvious fucking Bendis Speak>Bermuda Triangle Fortress... because Bendis needs something clickbait articles can feed off
>>101617645>This was decent
>>101617645It's probably not Martian Manhunter.
>>101617680Also, another con the slow ass fucking pacing. While I love the Single Page / Half Page Glamour Shots.... they basically just exist to pad it out. I feel this is another 3-4 Issue Story-Arc that Bendis is gonna stretch out by 6
>>101617402a beautiful page ruined by pointless text explains to the readers what we already know
>>101617702I feel like barely anything fucking happened other than the stinger in the last page
>>101617362I want Shirtless Clark to cuddle me.
Where is superman's black girlfreind
>>101617702I am not surprised. That retard can't tell a story without stretching the hell out of it.
Okay so I feel Bendis can write Clark, but what the fuck was that J'onn?
>>101617645It makes sense in context.
>>101617714and I guess J'onn telling Superman to fucking take over the world.
Why is the art so shit?
>>101617358I think the only thing he really did was randomly get rid of Superman's supporting cast so Superman could go back to being "pure". Like OMD but with less teeth.
>>101617461>And why?Because it allows for forced drama. Now Clark is sad/brooding like Batman. It also makes it so Clark can’t talk to Lois. This is makes it easier for Bendis to push him to his shitty original character romances since he doesn’t know if she’s still alive or not.
>>101617736hey look, it's Mark's gay friend and Atom Eve!>>101617734Yeah, Clark's voice isn't in the negative here sans when Bendis makes him use his signature BendisSpeak>>101617332>>101617325>>101617315Reminder that Bendis managed to make DC do Tiered Variants again but his fans are just jerking off how he's making them waste a page for recaps.
>>101617571Yes, Bendis just made a survivor of genocide say that Superman should consider totalitarianism...
>>101617299Great issue!I'm very excited to read the rest.
>>101617736when's the break up?
STOP READING CAPESHIT
>>101617736Really this is more of an insult than anything else, a completely blatant fan pandering piece.
>>101617769>Great issue!>I'm very excited to read the rest
>>101617702>>101617714I think in the last five years or so Bendis comics aren't really worth the $3.99 cover price. Even when collected there's too many stories not worth the high cover price, since his pacing is padded out. People defending his comics always like pointing to the art, but I look at this and I compare to Geoff Johns' work with Ivan Reis and at least Johns knew how to keep the reader's interest in a single comic. Similarly Bryan Hitch's art was better with Millar or Ellis but does nothing for me on Bendis' Age of Ultron. John Romita Jr was better with Millar, JMS, and others but Bendis' Avengers was a waste of his talents.
>>101617763>Reminder that Bendis managed to make DC do Tiered Variants again but his fans are just jerking off how he's making them waste a page for recaps.I may not like Bendis' stuff much but he isn't the one responsible for the tiered variants. He's the one who specifically requested not to have variants on Man of Steel #1, and because of the low orders DC decided to put variants on his Superman #1.
>>101617795The insult is people actually believing this is a sincere plot point and not simply a setup for the inevitable “GOTEM” moment where MJ leaves Peter again.
>>101617299What a boring issue.Why is DC trying to make Superman so brooding and angsty? When has that ever worked out?
>>101617818except MoS did below expectations DC had to make it returnable so LCS would want to order more. The tiered variants is them padding Bendis like Marvel did and I don't like it.
>>101617362>Superman and Lois are now broken up >>101617736>Peter and Mary Jane are backDammit, I wanted Peter/MJ back but not at the expense of Lois and Jon being shot into space.
>>101617843Right but he isn't the one who asked for variants. I do think they're going all out because Didio worked out a huge deal with Bendis and they want to get their investment's worth. I just think it was a severely flawed miscalculation to put him on Superman since his Marvel work in the last few years was getting pilloried.
>>101617299Welp this issue wasn't good.7 issues of Supes Bendis total and it's shit. Lovely.Looking forward to Bendis slowly making his way through every DC franchise while DC higher ups pretend he was a worthy investment.
>>101617613Not in this case. He is a 100% right.
>>101617382Why is that Hal is the GL in everything else with the JL even when he's not on the main JL roaster? Like it was like this with Simon and Jessica and now it's like that with John.
>>101617600does this mean Kal will find a new bottles city of Kryptonians with a new name so Bendis will try and get royalties?
>>101618005Bendis does not give a flying fuck about someone else's continuity, even with his "research" in the form of reading older TPBs.
>>101617974Is OC bad? Should writers only repeat elements ad nauseam, never deviating?
>>101618024It's not just him though in this regard, it's the same in most every book.
>>101617618Get ready to Pre-order that omnibus my guy
>>101617299>>101617362>>101617736>Bendis leaves Marvel>peace and prosperity >Peter and MJ even get back together >Bendis goes to DC>everything in disarray >Clark’s family is sent away from himIt’s official, Bendis is a bad omen. He’s like a plague that ruins comics around him.
>>101618005He’s part Jewish so Bendis likes him.
>>101617362I haven't been reading Superman lately. Is the repeated panel top and bottom here part of the Bendis incursion, or were they already doing that sometimes?
>Mars now died in a warIm sure that's been the way before but god can DC decide on a "how Mars died" for more than like 2 years for once?
>>101617440>>101617447>>101617453I've defended Bendis many of times, I liked most of his Avengers work. I even liked the few arcs of his Guardians & All New X I have read.But fuck this mother fucker for making J'onn into this.
while this issue was pretty w/e, I thought the bit with Superman flashing in and out of his conversation with John was pretty funpretty much the only redeeming part, though
>>101618110One of Bendis’s biggest signatures is having the artists who work with him copypaste panels often. Many artists do this from time to time, but with Bendis, it happens ALL the time.
>>101617415I'm assuming this copyboy knows his secret identity. Heck, maybe we'll get a whole Clark Oppenheimer thing.
>>101618110Some writers do it. Bendis just does it a lot. Its effectiveness depends on what the panel focuses on.
>>101618131No anon, fuck you for pretending you actually give a shit.
>>101618131Worst thing is, I actually thought Bendis with his record of quality Noir books would be a great fit for Martian Manhunter.
>>101617440>>101617447>>101617453Being a J'onn fan is suffering
>>101617424For a single hero we have BATMAN.. Why a single Superman?
>>101618166Considering J'onn is my 3rd favorite comic character FUCK YOU piece of trash.
>>101618174Maybe for something like American Detective but he's just writing him as "that Justice Leaguer" here with a bunch of misunderstanding about who he is.
>>101618174Bendis is a street level writer. He was built for writing police detective procedurals. You can’t put him on space books or writing aliens because he can NOT write that type of material at all. Everyone just sounds like a New York cop. Look at J’onn’s speech patterns and syntax in this issue. He actually says “garbage” at one point,
>>101618213No fuck you anon, you're a just a fucking tourist.
I will say a major positive is Superman being in space not needing an oxygen tank. Bugged me forever since the guy can hold his breath for like literally days. Superman saving people was nice, MM way out of character. Bendis is so shit...
>>101618227the thing is.. his Superman seems fine to me and he's very much a cosmic character. But his Martian Manhunter is just what the fuck?
>>101617477I really don't understand the dialogue. Do you really have to repeat ITS THE PHANTOM ZONE. For fucks sakes it's like he's writing a childrens book where he has to constantly remind people what shit is
>>101618241Clark was raised in Kansas so it makes sense that he has a rural drawl no matter where you put him...
>>101617299>>101617315This is kind of a lackluster cover. Action Comics #1000 also had a cover where he was just standing there doing nothing.
>>101617325This is an OK cover.
>>101618230What does that even mean?I've been buying comics since 2008, I bought J'onn's entire last series floppy by floppy.
>>101617545you clearly don't understand what quality is if you defend this garbage
>>101617447I LOVE YOU? Now I understand the gay superman topic.TAKE THE WORLD? This Superman in Anti-Injustice, because take the world is a bad idea.
>>101617332This one's alright.
>>101617600>My beating came around Avengers #500. That was where I thought it would be oh-so clever to blow everything up. Some fans liked it, and some hated it. There were a lot of arguments online, and a fan said to me, “We’re Avengers fans. All we buy is Avengers. And we have no idea who you are, but you came over and kicked all our toys over. You said, ‘Haha! This is fun, right?’ And we said, ‘No! We were enjoying that, and you kicked everything over!'” [Laughs]https://www.cbr.com/brian-bendis-superman-clark-kent-new-villains-interview/
>>101618297He thinks you're from /tv/ or twitterI believe you AnonI feel you
>>101618241>the thing is.. his Superman seems fine to meWell then you and Bendis both lack understanding of the character. Clark’s voice is completely off, and he is absolutely spineless when it comes to dealing with his father and his enemies. Clark doesn’t call his son “kid”. He doesn’t sacrifice his family because of some baseless claims from an old man who constantly insults him. On top of that, Supergirl beats the bad guy in a book named after Superman. What the fuck?Anyone can write scenes of Superman rescuing people from disasters. But the character is more than that.
>>101618378He also doesn't show emotion to seeing his dead father again after he busts into the house. And doesn't even care about Jon wanting to leave with his uncle into space (even though he tried to destroy earth last time).This Clark is just a robot.
>>101618378>>101618402Who the fuck made you the authority?
>>101617370>A GIRL??!!Not if Bendis has anything to say about that.
>>101617736It was also a more fun issue than this Superman.
>>101617395this is embarrassing to readI genuinely can't believe how bad this is
>>101617370To all of those Super Sons gay shota loversYou're getting what you wantedFUCKYOU
>>101618410I’m not an authority, I just know when my drink tastes like shit.
>>101617370>Bendis is going to make Jon gay I hate Bendis so much.
>>101617469>OH NO NO NO
>>101618442But anon, what if you don't actually know shit and is just reactionary cunt who says this is bad because it's written by Bendis?
>>101617370>Bendis pulls an Iceman on JonNO! NNNOOOOOOO! STOP IT BENDIS!!
>>101617440aaaaaaaaand it's political propaganda
>>101617429>>101617434>>101617440this is literally the worst thing I have ever read
How is it physically possible for something to suck this much? How is it even physically possible.
>>101617600he's an egomaniac in the most extreme way humanly possible
>>101618472>what ifIf ifs and buts were candies and nuts we'd all have a merry Christmas, shitposter-kun. Now go to bed. It’s a school night.
>>101617299Bendis should have died in the hospital.
>>101617402If the Bermuda Triangle wasn't hazardous enough for ships, now with superman's extra spikey fort we have a garanteed no float zone.Now, for every lost ship or plane we can blame superman.
This could be the worst single issue of any DC comic this year (not counting the upcoming Vertigo faggotry).
>>101617645that was literally one of the worst scenes I have ever seen in a comic
>>101618423it's depressing how true this is
>1 issue in>arguably already the worst run in DC history
>>101618559Dude it's not even the worst currently ongoing run for one of the big three if we count Man of Steel go read Robinson's Wonder Woman AKA the jerking off of "WONDY's LONG LOST BROTHER JASON"
>>101617337>SagaWell fuck, this is going to go nowhere fast
>>101618596THANK THE GODS that it's coming to an end today...Still can't believe they gave it the landmark of the 50th issue
>>101618600We have at least fives years of this shit.
>>101618611I just want the next run to start with an entire issue dedicated to Jason dying painfully and slowly to never be mentioned again.
>>101618212Because Superman NEEDS to be more like Batman and Spider-Man. Because that never backfires.While they're at it they can have Supes fuck Wonder Woman again because that too never fails.
>>101618596Robinson's WW is better than King's Batman
>>101618634I like him on Unexpected at least even if his JLA was meh so he can't possibly be worse than the utter trainwreck modern Robinson is.And Im pretty sure he's a fill in till the next proper run anyway. regardless now Batman has to deal with Robinson's shit in Tec.
>>101617545Negro, /co/ has annually Story time of Pain threads, everyone here knows how bad comics can be. That doesn't mean this isn't a total train wreck as well.
>>101618673as bad as the lows in that have been there's at least been some occasional good issues and even half decent arcs, literally the best compliment I can give to Robinson WW is "well Darkseid had some cool moments"
>>101618684>That doesn't mean this isn't a total train wreck as well.It does though. When people are calling this the absolute worse then clearly they have no true frame of reference.
oh god why have they given him both fucking titles
>>101618619Depends on sales.
>>101618596>Big 3 OK Kirkman. Any day now.
>>101617645>Martian Manhunter basically going "lol the world sucks YOU SHOULD TAKE OVER EVERYTHING!"Based. He's absolutely right. Someone needs to fix up the world.
>>101618710This is supposed to be the fun space romp one. Action Comics will be about his relationships at the Daily Planet
>>101617477The phantom Zone?
>>101617736wait what? Is NIck getting them back togheter?
>>101618626We should be so lucky... No, he's clearly going to absorb all of the "Dark Gods" powers and heroically sacrifice himself like the Gary Sue he is so Diana can have a sad...
Superman was never good
>>101618820>>101618626Is a new run starting after Wonder Woman 50? Because I have a backlog of that going all the way back to #26 so I wouldn't mind skipping it all if it's as bad as you say
>>101618841Steve Orlando is doing what seems to be some filler issues before a new unanounced full run but yeah... Robinson is gone after 50 at least.
>>101617440>Who has seen other, better planetsLIKE WHICH ONES?Every single planet we have ever seen at DC has just as much if not even more war and shit. It's true that many planets don't have "borders", but that's because they're all ruled by a one-world government, which has its own set of problems that are rarely adressed, but they'll still go to war with each other or with other planets that "border" them.
>>101617299>Superman's suit is perfect again>at the cost of Lois, Jon, the fortress, and Bendis bullshit everywhere THIS THE WORST MONKEYS PAW, HOLY FUCK. All they had to do was keep up the current status quo and this could've been amazing, why the fuck are they pulling this bullshit?!
>>101618853Did anything even remotely note worthy happen?
>>101618839Shut up, Bendis.
>>101618931This. After reading Green Lantern for years Earth looks like a damn utopia
>>101618931Bendis isn't smart, anon.
>>101618931Yeah, like J'Onn talks about the "galactic community". What "galactic community"? There is no such thing, all of these planets either go to war with each other or just stick to their own world.
>>101618931>whichs ones?Read more comics.
>>101618931>>101617440Bendis pulled this exact same shit in his GotG run, having all of the aliens shit on Earth, while conveniently ignoring that pretty much every other planet we'd ever seen at Marvel was far worse.
>>101618938Robinson brought back the Vanessa Kapatelis iteration of Silver Swan, while completely retconning her history so that Julia died in a car crash off-panel, which she somehow blames Diana forShe's currently being held in a healing vat being watched over by a disguised Doctor Psycho
>>101618987OK Anon, name me 5 DC planets that are better than Earth.
>>101617477>Rogol Zaar returnes what the fuck is Rogol Zaar
>>101619012Returns? He saw him last week. This whole thing is a shit show
>>101618064He's not a bad omen, he's literally cancer. I tried to warn dc but nobody fucking listened to me. YOU COULD'VE STOPPED THIS.
>>101619012WHY HE'S BENDIS' GRAND ADDITION TO THE SUPERMAN MYTHOS!(i.e. He's just another fucking Doomsday)
>>101617477>What kid?>This kid?>Me kid?
>>101619009Graxos IVRannBolovax VixMogoNew Genesis
>>101619042Isn't Rann at constant war with Thanagar?
>>101617346Seriously, Invasion! was a thing and invalidates this so hard.
>>101619068Why does it invalidate it.
>>101617370Ugly as shit kitchen.
>>101619065No, Rann was a scientific utopia where people lived with every need and want taken care of.
>>101619065Thanagar is at constant war with everyone.
>>101617415Wait... Is that supposed to be Jimmy?
>>101619042>Graxos IVAarisa's planet? I'll take your word for it.>RannThe planet that keeps going to war with Thanaggar?>Bolovax VixThey're a buncha commies.>MogoThat feels like cheating. It's easy to be a planet with no war when nobody lives there.>New GenesisYou mean the planet with elitist asshole gods who lare racict against the "bug people" on their planet? And who are also constantly at war?
>>101619106No you fucking retard. You guys are actively looking to be outraged and will straight make shit up to be outraged about.
>>101619113>The planet that keeps going to war with Thanaggar?No, the planet that achieved scientific paradise.
>>101619127And keeps going to war with Thanagar
>>101617434>I can help with some of these-->This one had fire.>Oh.Got a mild chuckle out of me, gg Bendis, you accidentally slipped a good line into this trash
>>101619137But that's entirely wrong.
>>101617409>EgoI get that the fire story is important, but that doesn't mean he can't write about the New Fortress of Solitude too. It's not egotistical to write about things people care about and that affect the whole world given how important Superman is.
>>101617477>Me phantom zone
>>101617477>more Royal ZaarWe just had a six-issue arc with him. Why?
>>101619174>>101619024Bendis is going to explain how Jor-El helped him in destroying Krypton.
>>101617299>>101617310Wait what the fuck, Bendis is writing all three Supes titles? I thought he was just doing Man of Steel.
>>101619158Look man just because you don't like it doesn't mean it didn't happen. Last time we saw Rann Strange's wife was looking to start a war with them
>>101619189Man of Steel was just a prologue to let Bendis set in.Bendis has BOTH Action Comics AND Superman. He has full control of the line and character.
>>101619189>All threeDid he get Supergirl?
>>101619204To say there are constantly at war with thanagar is a bullshit qualifier. Rann is nor constantly at war with Thanagar and is characterized as a highly advanced scientific society.
>>101617445Slightly better than Tomasi, though.
>>101619255Keep dreaming, Bendis.
>>101619083Because the Dominators tried to invade/destroy Earth during Invasion! and allied with 7-8 other planets to do so because they knew that Earth is filled with heroes and is dangerous as shit. They wouldn't try to invade on their own.
>>101617299>DC hires Bendis after he almost destroyed MarvelDo they want to go Bankrupt?
>>101618232I believe the reason for the tanks is that he still needs air so that he can talk in space, but not to breathe.
>>101619255>Slightly betterJurgens tier thinking there, friend-o.
>>101618045None of bendis oc do any of this. They just either exist until they get removed by other writers or they try to steal a place in canon through retcon like he is doing right now. Why are you even trying to defend this, unless you really are benis.
>>101619231He was thinking Man of Steel was an ongoing. Supergirl is someone new, I forget who, but it's not Orlando and she's going to be in SPACE - IIRCTomasi is doing Adventures of the Super Sons but it all takes place prior to Bendis Man of Steel, and at the moment, is only 12 issues, but presumably if it sells well, they'll either do another run or continue it or some such.
>>101619356DCfags are really really really really really really desperate to defend Bendis and his shitty writing. It’s why you even have comments like >>101617430 trying to say “At l-l-l-l-least it’s not as bad as his Marvel work!”. DC has been a dumpster fire since Johns was fired by the senior staff and Dan Didio brought over Bendis. They have burned all their good will with the readers and even the retailers. At this point they better shape up or else.
>>101617453Well, at least the bottom of this page has a really beautiful piece of art.
>>101619391>really really really really really really hating Bendis on Superman
>>101617795>a completely blatant fan pandering pieceYou mean like Rebirth did and succeeded until Didio and Haras backtracked on it all and brought in Bendis?
>>101617582First the Flash says Caca Poopoo now this. I’m afraid the longer his grip is on other characters. Makes me afraid what he will do to Kenan Kong.
>>101617337>"I have to find my family"This arc ends with Clark at home around the dinner table with the redhead firefighter and a black kid who grows up to be Albert Einstein with the caption "I've found my family". Screencap this.
>>101617477The Phantom Zone!! The entire Earth is in the Phantom Zone!!The Phantom Zone...The Earth. Is inside. The Phantom Zone (!!)
>>101617440You know, this scene might actually work if instead of J'onn saying this, it was somebody from the Legion of Super-Heroes. Instead of saying "other planets are better", he'd say "in the future, this planet will be better, and you'll be the one that leads the way". Also, make it sound less fascist.
>>101617299Oh boy. I can't wait for my weekly dose of Bendis Cringe Therapy.
>>101619231Supergirl is going to be written by Marc Andreyko and drawn by Maguire. She'll have an early crossover with the Green Lanterns. Considering how her space adventures were the best part of her New52 run, I'm hopeful that her series can improve after the Rebirth arc which was bad. Has anyone read anything by Andreyko to comment on how he is as a writer?
>>101619778Thats the key though, J'onn could work too if it was less fascist-sounding. More "you will inspire this planet to become better than it is today" and less "rule the planet so that'll it become good".
>>101619477>Keenan getting dragged into thisHopefully he leaves him the hell alone. As much as I want Keenan to get more recognition, not at this cost
>>101617395>>101617402Oh good, he’s now neighbors with asshole Atlanteans...
>>101617440>>101617447>>101617453I mean... is it possible he's making J'onn mindcontrolled?M-maybe they'll reveal that something took him over and he's been responsible for all the fires
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE STOP THIS?! Don’t buy this book, go autist on Twitter, something
>>101619908I'm afraid the only way to stop it is to go to Burbank and make sure everyone in the DC building never leave
>>101619373Damn DC stealing Marvel's best writer. What's next? Gonna steal our best boy next?
>>101618707Are you fucking autistic by any chance?
>>101620022I sure hope they don't get Gabby, that would be a terrible loss for Marvel.
>>101617415>i see you are a fellow workplace masturbator
This is somehow WORSE than anybody expected.
>>101617424And that's why Based Marvel ALWAYS wins
>>101618440>>101618448>>101618477>>101618423Are you sure it's not just a little kid not liking girls?
>>101618005>>101618046It’s just their preferred version of JL. Hal is not a space mia anymore so they could use him
Man of Steel started out OK. Then it turned to shit. But this is so much worse than Man of Steel that there's no comparison.
>>101617440>>101617447>>101617453Well, I guess we know who's getting Scarlet Witched first, am I right fellas?
>>101617736Only good page in this whole storytime tbqh.
>>101617477Really, why would Clark talk like that? When did he ever talked like that?! This is so offputting, at this point i hope he'll make an OC to replace Clark, at least he won't keep butchering the original Superman that way.
>>101617403Batman didn't get married but Peter and MJ are back together.
>>101620120YeahNot liking girls cause the sjw bendis made him a faggot
>>101617477>>101619767>>101618768Where? Didn't catch it the first 3 times
>>101619803He's done some stuff I liked such as Wonder Woman '77 but I was just re-reading some things before I was paying attention to who wrote them, and whatever it was he did in Convergence (I think he did some Bat family related stuff) and he may have suffered from editorial mandate there - but I just thought misunderstood the time frame in question and characters. Never read his Batwoman but on line he's got a rep for 'getting' female characters, so maybe he'll do fine by Kara. He doesn't really have any experience writing space adventures and he's had more recent experience doing lighter, comedic stuff, so not sure whether that's going to be in this or not. Batwoman, even without having read it, definitely wasn't comedy or light, and neither was his Outsider arc, which I do remember reading ages ago and it didn't make an impression - good or bad.
>>101617429This is so fucking stupid>oh wait look I have to punch a mutated t-Rex no problemFuck Bendis
>>101619217>full control of the line and characterWanna hand him the key to the city too? Jesus, why would they put the fate of one of their most popular characters into the hands of one man with questionable credentials in recent years. Did no one learn from Slott?Monopolizing characters was a mistake.
>>101617332I really do not care much for Mack. Even when Bendis was alright during his Daredevil run, didn't care for him. It makes me cringe that wherever Bendis goes, his cronies like Mack and Maleev follow him everywhere.
>>101619803Manhunter was great, but I haven't read his other works.
>>101620214Wait till he is in charge of an event. Then he'll have multiple characters to ruin at the same time.
>>101620239A Bendis even in DC...Does Bendis get to do their next crisis?
>>101617605Didn't it always? I've always read his origin as White Martians fucking them all to death. Interested in other origins desu.
>>101620227Bendis is the ultimate example of cronyism in comics. He got all his sjw faggot friends working at Marvel despite none of them having any previous writing experience or comics industry experience of any kind. The entire sjw takeover of Marvel happened entirely because of him.
>>101620271Bendis IS their crisis.
>>101617477Y'know, apart from the final few pages, I had a decent time reading this comic.
>>101620307i'm sure you had a good time writing it, Bendis
>>101618045A writer is most certainly allowed to put their own spin on things. Sure.This isn't an alt-verse though. This isn't a Red Son where everything is different and there's no fallout or bleedover. This is a completely new writer on a character systematically dismantling all the iconic things about them and re contextualizing them within his own ideogram, with the only reason seeming to be "because he wanted to." You can have an original villain, but when you tie in a retcon of the ages on Krypton's demise to shoehorn some kind of emotional tied backstory, have that OC destroy Kandor to drive up sympathy, and then immediately take care of that villain and destroy and re-establish the Fortress of Solitude in a different location (for functionally no reason at all), then your "take" as a writer has mutated into changing things for the sake of leaving your mark.And we all know what happens when someone tries to "fix" art.
Miss me fucking cunts?
>>101619889Something something white martians
>>101620307Fuck you and kill yourself.
>>101620280>read his originThat's funny because you clearly just watched the JL cartoon
>>101620369>hear this was editorially messed with and made its original run a mess to follow >read the trades >it's just Morrison doing his thing
>>101620463Gross! I just watch the movies.
>>101619297>>101619355I'm right and you know it.
>>101620110At least used a different image
Bermuda Triangle Fortress is cool as fuck, you guys are bitter
>>101620758It's stupid as fuck you're just a fucking simp.
>>101620460Not him and not at all. Kill yourself.
>>101620786Imagine if your Mother read you saying this, Anon!
>>101620794Can't I'm too busy imagining a fat autist (that'd be (You)) hanging himself actually.
>>101620822Just google Danny Devito hanging in IASIP.
>>101620839I'd rather you stream your suicide.
>>101620776It's actually awesome as fuck and you're too salty to see it.Really though, I like the mystery and allure of the ocean + Bermuda Triangle. We all know it will go back to the North Pole eventually.
>>101617477so the earth is in the phantom zone?
>>101620915The Phantom Zone? Where Krypton's greatest criminals are sent? That Phantom Zone?
>>101617370>Bendis is gonna make Jon gayI love Bendis. The only good thing he would have done so far.> Bendis is gonna Iceman JonJon doesn't have a canon sexuality yet. He's like 10, if anything he's now starting. Iceman was bullshit however.
>>101619889Funnily enough that's literally exactly the plot of Kelly's last JLA arc
>>101619339You are still in that mistaken mindset that Bendis gives a shit what has happened before he started writing the character. HE DOES NOT.
>>101621209This Billy is the taker?
>>101620893It's actually stupid as fuck you're just false flagging.
Wonder when the next Superman #1 will be ? Next summer I imagine.
>>101617362wait, whay are they broken up? where are louis and his son?
>>101617395>>101617402I mean he did have that fortress in the middle of the jungle that one time and that wasn't even Bendis
>>101617604I believe that's just it. Dimension "M". Maybe it's Dimension Marvel!
>>101617402the arctic was secluded noone traveled there, millions of people fly over the Bermuda triangle everyday how is this going to work.
Reminder that Superman did the most Superman thing ever and sacrificed himself to Bendis to Marvel can thrive again.
>>101617402That's straight out of 'Superman Returns'.
>>101621508On a trip in to space with Jor-El, they haven't broken up
>>101617477>the phantom zone>phantom zone>zone>THE PHANTOM ZONE!
>>101621629Geez, do you think maybe it involves the idea that the bermuda triangle is mysterious?
>>101617447is this how j'onn becomes R. J. Brande
>>101617299Bendis with another great issue. A worthy successor to Tomasi's and Jurgens' timeless runs. And they said Rebirth magic isn't real.
>>101621753Brande is a good man who would never concur Earth and also a Durlan.
>>101620363>This is a completely new writer on a character systematically dismantling all the iconic things about them and re contextualizing them within his own ideogram, with the only reason seeming to be "because he wanted to."
>>101617477wait where is the earth? I wish they said
>>101621785Did they bring back Oa?
>>101617423They both come across as assholes in that unique Bendis-style. So smug and edgy.I don't think his narrative style is a good fit for these characters.
>>101618232It’s not that he can hold his breath, but that he doesn’t need to breath as long as he has his powers.
>>101620120Ironically that is exactly what they used to justify making Iceman gay: One panel where he was too young to be into Jean Grey in x-men #1.
>>101621886Don't you think you're leaping to conclusions?
>>101621964we were told the same when we made the superman bingo and when we speculated what bendis will do.
>>101621645godspeed Supermanif X-men and Guardians could survive Bendis, then so can you
>>101621973The only thing more certain than where Bendis is going is the fact that he'll take a long time to get there.
>>101617469>>101617477oh wow I wonder where the Earth wentI hope we find out soon
>>101622203i guess that they might be in the phantom zone
>>101621973Yeah that's called confirmation bias. You vaguely predict something and then you only notice the hits and ignore the misses.
>>101617545>it's bad>but there are worse>therefore it's not bad
>>101622393>>101622393When you're saying it's the worst issue ever, When you're saying Bendis has ruined Superman, when it's all nothing but a circle jerk, that's when I have to point out the obvious.
>>101618820annndd this is pretty much what happened.
Im super confused what their doing with J'onn in JL he's basically classic old empathetic stoic but friendly heart of the JL J'onn. But here he's "THE EARTH IS GARBAGE YOU SHOULD TAKE OVER IT" and in Titans he's like "M'GANN WE HAVE SOME SUPER SEKRET AGENDA FOCUS ON YOUR MISSION"
>>101620915>>101620925Yeah, the Earth is inside the Phantom Zone. The same Phantom Zone that has all of Krypton's greatest villains and criminals inside it.That Phantom Zone.
>>101617477What Phantom Zone?This Phantom Zone?Me Phantom Zone?
>>101621395How am I false flagging? I'm being serious, I like the idea of the Fortress being in this mysterious-to-most-people-place that's inaccessible.
>>101622155>if X-men and Guardians could survive BendisBut they weren't the same when they came back...
>>101619477What's wrong with caca poopoo, anon? That's how the flash acts, didn't you see Justice League, the greatest movie ever?
>>101618932>Superman's suit is perfect againFuck you.
>>101619477>>101622925>that's how the flash acts/co/ will bitch that Barry never had a real character or personality, and then they'll bitch that a writer does something out of the norm. Make up your minds.
>>101617477> MUH EDITORS WILL KEEP BENDIS UNDER CONTROLhe's your problem now superfags
>>101620925Bendis speak always reminds of this scene from Shrek.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UovCFYhuWcI
>>101620289>The entire sjw takeover of Marvel happened entirely because of him.Eh don’t give Bendis all the credit. Alonso was, and Brevoort still is, firmly in support of the SJW takeover.
>>101620758>Bermuda Triangle Fortress is cool as fuck, you guys are bitterI preferred Superman’s Mayan fortress tbqh. The Bermuda Triangle has connotations of death and loss. That’s not what Superman’s presence should connect to.
>>101617434>Oh. Okay. I like ideasBendis kid of held back with the miniseries besides the me boy, he's letting it loose here.
>>101623159What the fuck do you think Mayans have connotations of
>>101617346I'm glad is just the galaxy and not "the universe".I can suspend my disbelief with the GLC about that because they can wormhole their way around. But still, space is fucking big and comic writers seem hilariously unaware of that.
>>101618110comics are just movie storyboards to Bendis and people like him, it's why we get redundant talking head scenes throughout and alot of the page compositions/panels are just widescreen shots on top of one another
>>101623361So he's just another type of 'I couldn't hack it in the movie business, so I settled for the next best thing?"
>>101623287Mayans are dead, dude. The Bermuda Triangle is still a thing.
>>101623398>The Bermuda Triangle is still a thing.Was it ever a thing? It's an old and tired meme. The "Bermuda Triangle" is like half the North Atlantic.
>>101618423>>101618440>>101618448>>101618477>>101620942you paranoid anons, it´s probably a girl that likes him is bulling him like Helga from hey Arnold I actually would like him being gay but it´s just him acting like a kid
>>101623383My impression is that it started naturally and when the comic to movie boom happened he began to exploit it
>>101617462>i can raise my boy, father,>to do what? put out fires in his baby clothes?at least Jon can save more than one person you cunt
>>101620307HAHA FUCKING KILL YOURSELF AND SLIT YOUR THROAT AND STREAM IT XD I'M SO EDGY BECAUSE REDDIT TOLD ME 4CHAN IS WHERE PEOPLE GO TO BE EDGY, LOL!!This issue was rife with Bendis-isms and I hated it like I'm supposed to but the thread is full of people bandwagoning and criticizing the book for all the wrong reasons.It's like how when Ready Player One came out, people disliked the movie because muh fictional setting wasn't realistic, not because it was a shit movie to begin with.
>>101617440>>101617434>>101617429I kinda like this idea, not a fan of the dialogue but superman having to interrupt a conversation to solve problems it´s kinda cool
>>101617636Probably Rogar Zaal pulled them in so he can destroy the earth or some shit.But man, this writing. He doesn't need to remind us what this shit is. It's like he's reminding himself.
>>101617440LUTHOR PREDICTED THIS
>>101619255Not much of an achievement. Anyone can be better than Tomasi.
>>101623688>>101623688So Far it has been distinctly Bendis. The question now is does that make it bad? I think the archetypical nature of DC is gonna work in his favor in terms of story execution.
>>101624164The dialogue has been distinctly Bendis, in this annoying manner where no adult sounds distinct. Everyone talks the same way and sounds the same. But I'm willing to overlook that. I'm more worried about whether Bendis is going to split the superfam, which was unironically one of the best bits of Tomasi's run.
>>101618186being a Jon fan is suffering too. Lets suffer together.
>>101618252>he stole 40 cakes>he>stole>40>cakes
>>101619803all I know about Andreyko is that he appeared on a panel to discuss Man of Steel the movie with Screenjunkies and he loved *every* part of it
>>101617461>Wait, when did that happen?when Rogol Zaar went on a rampage in the fortress of solitudethey mentioned this like 4 times
>>101624164>archetypical nature of DCThat’s a meme. Even if Suerpan is an archetype, he’s still a character in his own right, with his own motivations and his own desires. Bendis corrupts that and warps it to his own selfish purposes, as we can see with this issue.
Why the fuck is Martian Manhunter a communist nowOf all the dumb shit Bendis could have done
>>101624876>that's a memeIs Grant Morrison a meme?
Critic and User reviews for Superman #1 so far:https://comicbookroundup.com/comic-books/reviews/dc-comics/superman-(2018)/1
>>101624776And that's a bad thing.
>>101617545>You faggots don't even know what a truly shit comic looks likeWell gee, sorry that not all of us are Marvelcucks. Some of us actually have standards.
>>101618931Most major planets seem to be run by some evil alien despot, warlord, evil computer, or just a plain old supervillain that was unchallenged. The rest seem to be medieval worlds that happen to have spaceships, or Mad Max junk post-apocalyptic nightmares that happen to have spaceships.

>>101617395wtf, this is a supervillain page
>>101621744That's retarded, people still travel through it constantly
>>101617447ah. so J'on is Bendis' Injustice Wonder Woman
>>101617477>Rogol Zaar returnsFUCKING DAMN IT- Not even a fucking issue after they got rid of him. Fuck Bendis and his OCs, the only thing than I hope is live long enough to hear his death in the news in 40 years or less.
>>101625926Why do so many people think that shit was permanent? He was hyped up so much and you can see him in the Nuclear Man art Bendis posted. It's like you guys never read a comic book before.
>>101617402>Bendis doing narrations in Superman>Snyder doing narrations in JLfor why?It feels like such an old form of story telling for comics. I don't mind it, it just feels very foreign
>>101617402Looks cool but he put the Fortress right over Xebel? That’s going to cause problems.
>>101617409>>101617402>>101626203nvm, this narration being Clark's story makes more sense now. Still pretty odd narration going on in JL that doesn't seem to be attached to any character besides the Superfriends announcer
>>101617358Decent. Bendis actually utilized recent continuity. There was some terrible dialogue but he did a good job with Kal and Kara.
>>101617362>>101617370Pretty good depiction of how lonely Clark must be feeling but of course /co/ is just memeing hard like retards.
>>101618024God you’re retarded. Snyder did the same thing with Metal.
>>101618005Hal is the “iconic” Lantern so he’s the one everyone uses. That’s the real reason. Of course everyone here will act like Bendis started this trend, even though Johns used Hal for Darkseid War and Snyder used him for Metal.
>>101626239>Bendis actually utilized recent continuity.>he did a good job with Kal and Kara.Oh god no, he didn’t. Why lie?
>>101617424He’s not single you retards. Christ it’s like you niggers can’t even read.
>>101617429L O N D O NONDON
>>101626387>Of course everyone here will act like Bendis started this trendHow does it feel to be a constant victim against attacks on Bendis?
>>101617447>>101617453Now THIS was bad. Seriously the fuck is J’onn saying?
>>101626523That he'd be totally cool with Emperor Superman.And if Superman would need a trusted advisor while he transitions the world to his BENEVOLENT rule, well J'onn and him really have this common link...
>>101620307You have consistently shown to have terrible taste and cursory knowledge of the medium so it doesn’t surprise anyone
>>101617509>>101617571>>101617645Johns had Superman responsible for the 30th Century United Planets, as in he directly founded it. Bendis has been referencing the Legion a lot in interviews, and this is probably his clumsy way of introducing the idea. It’s still fucking dumb to have J’onn suggest Clark seize power though.
>>101625969because we had to see him for 6 straight issues. Bendis could have at least waited 6 issues to bring him up again. Or not rid of him so we dont have to hope of easily forgetting him
>>101617825He’s neither brooding nor angsty though dumbass. He misses his family but is still shown to be able to smile and enjoy himself without them.
>>101626591To be fair, there are aliens from how many different advanced planets on Earth, causing trouble or fixing it?At this point it's rather moronic for Earthmen to be living in a quarrelsome backwater necking each other over local customs and quaint religious anamolies. One day some ambitious Space Alexander will see Earth, and the corps will shrug and say "Hey, it might be an improvement, shape up the place."And people like J'onn and Superman are literally about the only impediment to that happening at that point. Superman might be fed up with the brightest humans on the planet using their intellect to rob banks and steal 40 cakes by that point.
Comic Earth's perpetual, unchanging, reflection of our own Earth, in the face of decades of Alien attacks, supernatural calamities, super-science disasters and interdimensional incursions is the absolute worst status-quo in big 2 comics. It's like one of those video games where nothing you accomplish makes any real difference to how the story evolves.Superman or Spider-Man saving the day is essentially just a setpiece battle that sets up the next battle and the next battle, with zero effect on the wider world they live in. Macy's has a giant Galactus footprint in it, but it really doesn't bother anyone overmuch. Hey, remember that time we were all slaves to Darskseid's anti-life? Nah, I have to get this report filed by Tuesday, I can't allow that to affect my routine or habits or outlook on things.
The corporate nature of these licensed characters, all long past their expiration date, written by people disconnected from any real ownership of them or their stories, dictates that they be cyclical, comfortable and predictable.Like the eternal Mark Trail or Heathcliff comic strip, pretty much the same stuff going on day in and day out. A pair of scowling white guys are poking about in the woods, could be they are poacher or bank robbers on the lamb! And look, Mark's son has been abducted by these fellows for the 3,456th time!If you keep pulling these shallow company product books, you cannot express amazement when, 2 years later, you are back where you started again. That's the very nature of their existence, they are hens that regularly lay sales-eggs.
>>101617299I had actually forgotten that MoS had ended. Sasuga Bendis
>>101626828I don’t have a problem with Supes trying to do more than punch the bad guy. But I fucking hate when hack writers go>Supes can’t do anything other than punch people because otherwise HE’LL BECOME SPACE HITLER AND ENSLAVE US ALLThat shit is retarded. J’onn saying “Y’know maybe you should take over” is retarded. I’m glad Supes basically says nah and left though.
>>101617337>that popping outline on the letter y
>>101617299You know what, this was an OK issue. You guys make drama for everything. Perhaps, it is not a "NEW #1" material, but it isnt as bad as some of you say. Don't get me wrong, I know Bendis and i'm pretty sure he will fuck this up eventually, but for now it's ok. Also, the Bermuda Fortress is cool, fuck you (although Supes had another fortress in rebirth, but it's Bendis, he doesnt gave a fuck).>J'ohn is a bad influence.Alright, that was shit.
>>101627019Superman couldn't so much as build a dam or repair a bridge without a box full of waivers and studies and legal paperwork.And that would be preferable to a lot of the world, where his interference in the commoner's lot would be seen as undermining (or even propping up) the Junta.J'onn is saying that it's far past time that Earth realizes they are just a small town on the edge of the civilized galaxy, not the center of existence where everyone is entitled to their own national Petoria.
>>101626930>Like the eternal Mark Trail or Heathcliff comic strip, pretty much the same stuff going on day in and day out. A pair of scowling white guys are poking about in the woods, could be they are poacher or bank robbers on the lamb! And look, Mark's son has been abducted by these fellows for the 3,456th time!But Heathcliff is more interesting to read than most comics.
In a world where the Justice League can create an orbital defense satellite base and use it as their "no blacks allowed" club-house, it's rather ludicrous for the rest of the world to dicking around with rickety space shuttles, as is shown in this very comic issues.Earth is worse off than the Aztecs against the Conquistadors. All they have is Superguy and friends.
>>101627170Because it's brief and free.You aren't buying Heathcliff magazines for 4 bucks.
>>101626523He's telling Superman to take over the world.
>>101627215Honestly, the idea that their has to be a toothless UN Human Rights council, and that its membership includes repressive and brutal regimes, probably causes J'onn to scream into his pillow.
>>101617492You should really just say “Support your LCS”. Fuck this comic, no one should support Bendis
Having the Justice League inhabit OUR world, with it's nuclear detente, child soldiers and systemic genital mutilations, is problematic for anything but juvenile "Toyman is robbing the 1st National Bank!" stories.It's Doom weeping over 9/11 writ large across the entire narrative.
To wit:>Are their starving nations in DC Earth?>If so, why aren't DC's cosmically powerful heroes helping>This is usually a problem of national conflict pushing one group into a corner and then misfortune sets in>Do the League intervene in the conflict?>Should people only have access to food if they have sufficient petro-dollars?>Could the League create a cheaper food supply?>What are the ramifications of that to world farmers?Instead we are going to do a "Will they or won't they fuck" plotline with what would be Superman's 5th redheaded girlfriend.With occasional fights with one of Superman's dopiest enemies. Seriously, a child could have designed Rogal Zarr.
>>1016173581-2 were good3-4 were mediocre5-6 were rancid shit
>>101617447>>101617440Reminds me of Son of Superman
>>101627537See that's what I was wondering about, Bendis loves Chaykin's work and he'd probably be aware of Son of Superman, especially since the Kents' son is named Jon in it.
>>101617477I don't get it, in what zone is the earth
If any of you want to hug it out, I just want to let you know.I'm hear for you.
>>101621629planes have been flying over the north pole for a while nowquicker to go straight up on the map in some cases
>>101620369Just because this run wasn't AS bad doesn't mean it wasn't awful. I just wanted DC to continue the fucking status quo they had before bendis.
>>101627724This is the DC fanbase we are talking about. Give it another two months, and everyone will accept it as good and keep pulling them at the LCS.
>>101625015Reviews for comic books have always been the most worthless thing ever. It's so fucking obvious that they get paid to shill and damn near any comic gets a high score no matter how bad it is. I mean fuck, Civil War II got great reviews for most of it's run.
>>101627936This, it's Gameinformer-tier.
>>101627558You think he'll go whole hog and turn J'onn into an antagonist? Neither DC nor WB seem keen on him so I doubt they'd protest.
>>101617440>Globalist propagandaIs this what comics are now?
>>101621744>>101622906How is it mysterious or inaccessible let alone more so in either respect than a polar fortress?
>>101621416If that. MoS shit the bed. 60-something K for issue one I'm guess sub-60 for #6. Superman #1 will get a bump but I don't think it'll even be over 100.
>>101628005I don't know who he's fooling. You aren't going to solve real-world issues in a comic book, of all mediums.
>>101622928Nah. Fuck you. Enjoy Bendis newfag.
>>101627114Isn't Earth literally the center of the DC multiverse and where life began in the DCU though?
>>101628087Nah you kys yourself and stream it newfag.
>>101627993Kinda hard to do that while also having him be the leader of basically the entire superhero community and more or less focus of the main JL book.
>>101624703Yes, anon, suffer with me.
>>101628047It's difficult to say at the point. It sounds like readers are still buying MOS and #1 of Superman and Action will get a bump, but give it about six months to see where things go.
>>101628290You underestimate Bendis' power
>>101618477did bendis right this? is there a chance for "kathy" to be jon's love interest?
>>101628537That was Tomasi, not Bendis.
>>101619355Jurgens > Tomasi any day
>>101628555Was this in supersons? I don't remember it at all.
>>101628344What do you mean still buy MoS? It ended. And issue 5 of 6 was at 60 something. If that bump isn't massive for issue one he could be below where Superman was before the relaunch.
>>101628829I mean going by the retailer comments on the BC Bestseller list and the Comixology charts in the weeks that MoS were out. MoS on new release somehow still keeps beating most Marvel titles on Comixology, and I have no idea why.The bump for Superman and Action #1s isn't what you need to worry about. Bendis' Iron Man had a massive bump during its launch and then it slid fast before Civil War II.
This is a real issue now. How do we correct it?
>>101617354>Superman traveling through space, wow this is so refreshing, finally! >"I know where I'm needed">
>>101629205remove all writing, text boxes, and repeat panels
>>101617395>>101617402What about his fortress in the Andes?!Fuck this is stupid. Just rebuild it in the arctic.
>>101617354So how many Dominators did Superman kill here?
>>101617299>Superman #1How many of these are there at this point?
>>101617477>>101617424Thank god for Nick Spencer. I wasn't a fan of Hydra Cap, but today's ASM was the tallest Spidey glass of water that I've needed for about 10 years now.>>101617477Welp, seems like a whole lot of what I feared. Guess I'm just gonna need to fall back to the previous issue of Superman for solace.
>>101617402This is actually really cool. As for making Clark and Lois break up, Bendis can go fuck himself.
>>101617409Damn, Clark's desk is terribly placed. He can't watch porn from that position.
>>101627724Thanks m8. It was fun enjoying Superman. Guess I'll need to wait a few more years until I can read the issues of his with any sincere excitement again.
>>101630240Aliens aren’t people.
>>101627993They might be, he seemed shifty in todays Titans too, with him apparently having some SUPER SEKRET MISSION for M'gann which is why she's on the team and apparently knows some stuff J'onn wants to make sure no one else does.
>>101617453I know it's Bendis and he's notorious for getting characters wrong, but this J'onn is such a misstep that it has to be a fakeout.
>>101617453This is likely a fake trying to fuck with Clark's mind. It would make sense.If it turns out it's actually real then.... I don't know. There are no words for that level of fuckery.
>>101628992Comixology doesn't matter. They don't release numbers. How new are you?
>>101617370Remember when Jon literally said "I like going to school"
>>101628992>MoS on new release somehow still keeps beating most Marvel titles on Comixology, and I have no idea why.Because even though Bendis Superman is already a flop, 2018 Marvel as a whole is even more of a flop, so it makes Bendis Superman seem like a financial success.
>>101631168Brainlet, if I said "Bendis' Superman was selling badly at comic shops but it charts high on Comixology" then your response would mean something.I said retailers are saying it's selling well (which means sell-through and not just Diamond pre-orders) and it charts high on the Comixology chart, which means it's doing okay on two fronts.
>>101617402>>101617395I feel like aquaman wouldn't be okay with this
>>101630406I don't think hydracap was as bad as everyone said it was. There were problems but most of the outrage sounded like complete fucking casuals who had never read a comic before to realize it was temporary. That caused last minute changes which probably made shit worse as an appeasement. Then retarded meddling like a hero that's slightly important but not too important must die because this is an EVENT now steps in. The actually retarded shit in there was the chitauri and shield plotline which I personally blame more on editors for being so shit at their fucking jobs that they refused to clamp down. Eg BIGGER THAN THE ANNIHILATION WAVE. THIS SHIELD CAN STOP GALACTUS. LET's ALLOW BENDIS TO KILL THE HULK WHEN HE'S FUCKING CURED. I notice that many of the more retarded aspects of when cosmic is involved is because the writers don't understand the stuff they should have learned from Worf at the planetarium.Hydracap stabbing everyone in the back was fucking priceless wherever it went.
>>101617477but how did it happen without anyone noticing?
>>101630462they haven't break up, Bendis literally took Jon and Lois and remove them from the world to an unknown place with Jor-el.He basically put them in a box so other writers can't use them until he decides how to bring them back.
>>101617605idk is the death of Mars still Ma'alefa'ak's fault?
>>101618477I miss Kathy and Jon just being pure together
>>101617299it was good but the whiny nuco babies are gonna pretend it was bad because its bendis
>>101631588that was in hamilton, he may just not like the metropolis school. we haven't really seen it yet desu. maybe he's getting bullied.
>>101617362okay i know for a fucking fact lois' shirt is a reference to a stupid silver age imaginary story but i can't remember which one, one of you tell me what it was before i got crazy. is it futuro?
>>101630462>>101617461>>101617424>>101617865>>101621508>>101618932remember, next time someone on co tells you you have a bad opinion, THIS is the level of reading comprehension on this sight.
>>10163296760k isn't good though what aren't you understanding
>>101634404It's the Wonder Twins logo, isn't it?
>>101617440>Martin Manhunter shilling for the EU fucking Bendis
>>101617440>Take over the world, KalWhat kind of fucking J'onn is this?
>>101634563>Lois and Clark are't broken up! They are just very very very far away!Bendis literally sent them away because he and DC editorial wanted a single childless Clark. The editor admitted he hated Lois married to Supes and said it ruins the character.Yeah, and Bendis is going to age them up so Clark is forced to be with his young OC. But keep shilling Bendis because he works for DC now. Maybe next you can shill for Zoe Quinn.
>>101617477>The Phantom Zone? It's the Phantom Zone, and the Earth is in it, inside the Phantom Zone. The Earth is inside the Phantom Zone, the horrible limbo for crime Phantom Zone. A phantasmal aura inside a the zone which is the Phantom Zone. And now the Earth, our planet is inside it. Inside the Phantom Zone it is. The Earth is in the Phantom Zone. Inside the Phantom Zone.
>>101620467the trades publish the issues in a different order. The two part with the Legion of Superheroes happened in the middle of the first arc because Rags fell behind on the art.
>>101620758I just hate that they keep using the Donner crystals for fucking everything. THANK YOU GEOFF JOHNS FOR BRINGING THAT SHIT BACK.
>>101617440I didn’t know Bendis was writing Injustice
>>101620168Nah professor lizard was better
>>101637168Got any source on the Superman editor?
>>101637168listen, you need to work on differentiating your schizophrenic visions and random bullshit on a vietnamese goat herding forum from reality or you're gonna have a hard time moving out of your moms basement. keep reeing about shit that hasn't actually happened tho :)
>>101617337>The American Way is backwell color me surprised. There's something I never thought I'd see come back
>>101617477Hahahahahahaha. Bendis is trolling at this point.
>>101620307This was literally Gabby-tier.What the fuck is wrong with you.
>>101618045When you destroy established canon, for the SOLE purpose of replacing it with your shitty OCs? Then absolutely it's bad. And that's pretty much all Bendis does. He doesn't even give a shit about writing stories, he just likes destroying everything to make room for his shitty OCs.He's like the fucking Professor Zoom of comics.>"Remember when I killed Spider-man? When I destroyed Kandor? Or when I ruined Clark's family? IT WAS ME, BARRY
>>101628024You never heard of the Bermuda Triangle?People just put on parkas and walk into the Fortress all the time. If it's surrounded by rocks jutting out of crashing waves you can't get in so easily.
>>101637419Yeah I actually agree, but as long as they're gonna continue the trend then it's fine if they do wild shit with it.
>>101638745No they don't. There's all kinds of bullshit ways that keep normal people out, from an invisibility cloak in the silver age to the New 52 version which only recognized Clark's DNA.
I am actually glad the Monkey Paw worked for once. Spiderman and MJ are back together, but at the cost of Superman and Lois
>>101638820>it takes a supernatural force to undo the shit Bendis fucks upChecks out.
>>101635557Because you're a brainlet and you have a hard time thinkingThe 60K you keep saying is preordersIf retailers are saying they're selling well that means they're talking about sell-through, not preorders.Which do you think is a success:A book people order 200K of but they report is just sitting there on the shelvesA book people order 60K of but they report have high salesI think Bendis' Man of Steel was okay start but ended terribly, but I'm not stupid enough to pretend that retailers weren't saying that it was selling well. I wish it wasn't selling well after seeing the quality of the last few issues, but that's not reality.
Why would you make a new fortress of solitude that anyone can access? Seriously?
>>101617453>>101617447>>101617440Why don't you just put the whole world in a bottle, Superman?
>>101639253Take a fucking look at that thing anon no way is anyone accessing that. And it’s not like his Arctic Fortress was impossible to get to either.>>101639854To be fair Clark seemed creeped out at the idea.
>>101637168>Shit that will never happen Where the fuck did you retards get the idea Bendis hates marriages? What marriages did he ever break up? He married Cage and Jones ffs.
>>101631588>Kids can’t ever change their opinionI realize I’m on 4chan but you DO remember being a kid right? You do remember sometimes not wanting to go to school?
I heavily disliked this. I know it's not godawful terrible but if you liked this, you're the fucking reason why Bendis gets away with his stupid decisions. It's not that his last few issues have been bad (Sans Man of Steel 4 and 5 which are actually legitimately bad) but with Bendis, it's just a fucking ticking time clock for him to screw it up and introduce something that'll just be a means for people to forever remember his run be it positive or negative and then make you the bad guy for hating it (Making Bobby a homo)
>>101633759>There were problems but most of the outrage sounded like complete fucking casuals who had never read a comic before to realize it was temporary. Anon, this is as fucking stupid as>HAHA CHARACTER DIED>HAHA CHARACTER NOT DIED ANYMOREYes, we all have read enough comics to know how nothing meaningful ever fucking happens, no one is ever really gone, everything returns to the status quo, and capeshit really needs to be put out of its misery, because it's complete and absolute garbage every time an author goes "HERE'S A THING THAT HAPPENED, BE EXCITED", followed by "WE'RE UNDOING THAT THING THAT HAPPENED, BE EXCITED".tl;dr go fuck yourself you dumb marvelcuck.
>>101627724anon, we only got TWO YEARS of Rebirth good times before they fucked with it AGAIN! after FIVE of Nu52 Garbage. TWO YEARS! And the Movies are Still AWFUL!
