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.

I’m surprised, I thought he was getting set for an executive position like Joe Q.

Micheal Bendis signs an excluysive deal with DC

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.

Should we start taking bets on which characters he will ruin first?

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.

Smart money says he starts with Batman before moving to a Justice League book.

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.

I  think he'll get Super Sons, for some reason.

Or maybe a Conner Kent ongoing.
