This is a big surprise. Not a fan of most of his more recent stuff. His civil war 2 event was a hot mess

Wonder what books he will get

Well since DC loves ignoring huge chunks of continuity this is perfect for Bendis.

I wonder if he will resolve the time displaced X-Men story or not.

Title: Micheal Bendis signs an excluysive deal with DC
Post by: shadowknight on November 07, 2017, 11:27:35 AM
I don't know what to think overall. While he's had hits, he also had plenty of stinkers. Nevertheless I'm exited given he's hinted  pretty strongly that he always wanted to do the LSH once his Marvel exclusive expired. To tell the truth the LSH has been a perfect storm of less than inspired ideal for the last 12 odd yrs hopefully he can resurrect a  once great franchise.

Here's the story.

Outside of a few things, Bendis just tends to suck on every book he's in charge of. This is great news for any future of Marvel Comics.

Get ready for 2 or 3 kickass stories to get the hype going and then everybody starts sounding exactly the same for a few years of what I'm assuming some will call an "amazing" JLA run.

Everybody pick 3.

LOSH
Batman
Green Lantern

Maybe his shittiness will cancel out the shittiness Johns injected into the franchise and it will turn out positive.

There are a few characters I think he might be able to do something with but he's got to stay away from a lot like Superman and Batman. I can see him doing some good work with Nightwing, Green Arrow, and Impulse. In fact he handles young characters well enough I wouldn't mind him bring back classic Young Justice.

It makes me wonder what's going on behind the scenes.  Bendis has been Marvel's golden boy for over a decade now and he even has some sort of role in Marvel Studios as a consultant or whatever.  It's weird that he'd jump ship like this.

This is terrible news to me.  I've always been more of a Marvel than a DC guy growing up, but I've enjoyed DC stuff more for years now as Marvel has (imo) declined.  I really hope Bendis doesn't get the influence to drag DC down.
Title: Re: So...Bendis just jumped ship to DC
Post by: XerxesTWD on November 07, 2017, 08:04:47 PM
Through the 80's-90's, I liked both fairly equally. I liked a bunch of stupid Silver Age stuff, too.

When Bendis took over in the early 00's, I was pretty excited. He'd done some great work elsewhere.

Then he started getting control over more and more books. He stopped writing different characters. It got to the point where you could put nearly any character in their place and it wouldn't actually matter.

Johns definitely has lots of flaws, but his characters aren't all pretty much the same person.

Fuck both of those guys, anyway.

right now I'm liking marvel more than DC. the post Flashpoint universe basically killed, wrote off, or drastically changed all my favorite DC characters. Luckily Rebirth seems to be restoring some of the stuff.

At least he was for, I think, the first Iron Man movie and the first Avengers movie.  I remember seeing a pic with him, Quesada, maybe Breevort, and Feige.

I think I saw his name on the Ultimate Spidey toon. He even wrote an even worse episode of the Spidey-Wolverine body swap he did.

My thoughts on Bendis. I think you can get maybe twenty at the most good issues before he runs out of steam and they start to go down. And that's if the character fits his strength.

He should not do team books. AT ALL. I'm sorry, but he's just not good at them. Like everyone has pointed out, you can just swap word balloons and pretty much nothing would change.

And alot of his big events ended pretty lackluster or didn't make much sense. His decompressed style can really be a hindrance when he tells an eight part story that could be told in four or five parts.

I think he could do good on street level characters like Batman. I thought he improved on his Tony Stark, so you have that with the Bruce Wayne aspect of the character.

The really weird thing about his compressed storytelling is that a lot of his stories still seem to have rushed climaxes.  Like his Secret War mini with Cage, Spidey, Wolverine, etc.  It was, what, four issues long?  The first three issues involve vague flashbacks to the team's time in Lateveria while they sort of meander around in the present.  Then there's one issue where we get a big supervillain brawl and the chick who replaced Dr Doom shows up, then explodes.  The end.  His first arc in New Avengers was similar.  The break out in the Raft gets drawn out far too long with this huge build up for Sentry, only for Sentry to basically do nothing aside from rip Carnage in half, then everything is tied up 2-3 pages later.

His dialogue is horrible.  Again, he started off great, but when people reacted positively to the realistic manner of speaking (repeating, pausing, etc) then he started turning everyone into a stuttering fool.  There were lines I had to read over and over again because I couldn’t what was being said.

Yeah. Alot of his storylines just have really boring conclusions. Worse is how many issues they are.

And Bendis dialogue.

"I'm doing fine."

"Fine?"

"Fine."

"So am I."

"Fine?"

"Better than fine."

"That's good."

"Better than good."

ARRGGGHHHH

And I will go to my grave proclaiming Ultimate Spider-Man issue 13 is the most overrated single comic ever!

First two issues have been okay* albeit precursors to an actual challenge for Superman, so basically two set-up issues.

*Although I hated both covers so far.

Slightly decompressed, although thankfully not to the usual Bendis lengths (AFAIR).

I like Rogol Zaar's design (based on an Orc Warlord according to the design page in both issues) although not his name.

Hopefully Ro-Zarr (much better name I think) makes it to Earth before the final page of issue #3.

His costume/character designs over the years. He’s great at pre-established looks, pretty crappy/generic on original stuff imo.
I mean come on man, a skull belt buckle? Really?

As for the character itself, which is Bendis, yet -another- villain w. ties to Krypton. Meh. 
Another hulking brute w. ties to Krypton to boot.

Not very original.
Title: Re: So...Bendis just jumped ship to DC
Post by: HalloweenJack on June 12, 2018, 07:20:46 PM
yeah but we don't actually know if he did anything to Krypton yet. He doesn't like Kryptonians and wanted to wipe them out and even the big powers of the universe who told him no are unsure of whether he did or not, because he's apparently not a "BLARGH! I AM EVIL! HEAR MY EVIL LAUGH!" type.

Seems to be a well respected and feared warrior. I mean the next time we see him, he's coming into his favorite watering hole and seems to be on friendly terms with the owner. No "OH NO! HE'S COMING!" and more like "Oh hey dude, been a while. Your regular?"


So I'll see where it's going first. Now we can guess there will be some fuck ups here and there, but I'm really hoping this run turns out to be more Daredevil and less New Avengers

That is a bit cliche' but the weapon was pretty cool (maybe a touch of Terrax in there).

Bendis creates very few characters (for Marvel at least) but I don't see the big fuss with Rogol Zaar having ties to Krypton - if anything it just gives a a quick explanation of why he wants to fight Superman.

Quote

I can only think of one other myself so its not a big turn off for me. I want to find out more about those characters Rogol Zaar was talking to though.

Quote
Not very original.

You could sort of say that about 99.9% of characters/villains created in comics today. Most are derivative of something else.

Overall for me the villain LOOKS cool. His name is poor. Whether he'll be a good/great villain only time will tell.

But then how many great new villains has Superman faced since Doomsday?

TBF, DD wasnt great, he was a one dimensional monster that served a purpose, but i see your point.

And to that point, i have to say, characters like this Rogol Zaar arent great, just more of the same.
We all know Superman’s going to win pretty much any physical fight he gets into, so, why invent character after character that are just an excuse for him to brawl?
Supes has other qualities that have just been woefully ignored for going on a decade now, ever since the New 52 stripped him of all the things that made him superMAN.

But thats just me, no sarcasm intended, hope you enjoy the new villain and stories. I was hoping for something different, which i know Bendis is capable of, or used to be.

I'm an occasional Superman fan (I pick up trades here and there) and I don't recall any great new villains in the past 25 years. I really liked Atlas but that was an old character updated.

Maybe he'll defeat Superman? That's how it looked from the previews.

Part of the big problem as regards Superman (for me) is the fact that he's as powerful as he needs to be approach rather than well he's 'this powerful'.

Quote
so, why invent character after character that are just an excuse for him to brawl?

Well its very simple, Superman is an action (super)hero. If you take the action out of the story then it loses the majority of its appeal.

Superman needs to be challenged, otherwise the stories become boring. Now that challenge might not always be physical, BUT from a visual standpoint (in a comic or movie) it nearly always needs to have an action component.

That said, while you can't necessarily kill off the main character (I guess you can get away with that once) you then need to find other ways to hurt him; such as via his friends and family; or weakening him; or imprisoning him etc.

Quote

Curious what you think they took away from him? I wasn't following every issue back then.

So far its been average but I like the potential of Rogol Zaar and maybe Bendis will surprise us somewhere along the line.

So why did they start trending Luthor back to a villain? Over the last few years I felt Jurgens had done a great job of developing him away, and now it seems it's been switched back. He hasn't gone full villain like before, but whatever little trust the two had built seems to be gone. And Superman just writing Lex off as evil and not capable of change in the Superman Special seems very un Superman of him.

He'll be back to pure villain in no time. Happened to Zemo, too, and that was under a more talented writer than Bendis.

If you think action is only defined by brawling, and thats all Supes has to offer, i guess we havent got anything left to discuss.

True but if you already have numerous great villains that fill pretty much every niche, its easy for writers at the big 2 to simply fall back onto older more established great characters.

Quote

No one said action is only brawling. In fact I'd say among the more powerful heroes (Hulk, Thor, Wonder Woman etc.) Superman is the least reliant on getting into fights because he's not necessarily a warrior (or a 'beast' as in Hulk's case) per se.

But that said there are only so many times (or so often) you can save x, y and z before it gets a bit stale. Whereas a brawl can stay fresh if you mix up the villains (and their power sets) enough.

Yeah, I knew it wasn't in a Bendis comic that it started happening. I brought it up here because I thought of it as a general Superman topic. It was in the Action Comics 1000 issue that introduced Bendis' Man of Steel series. And since that issue was kind of a mark for a jumping on point for a new direction, and Man of Steel is supposed to be kind of setting the new focus, I kind of associated Bendis with the cause of it.
