    To be fair, after Black Dawn, a lot of the run is filler. The pure Tomasi stuff is really only a few stories, one of them being the Super Sons crossover, which is more a Super Sons arc than a...

    The name Future State does kind of sound like something where Superman might team up with The Authority. So it could very well have something to do with that Jon as Superman and Clark with the...

    I don't know. When someone ends a book on their terms, they usually say something like I told the story I wanted to tell. Or I felt it was time to move on. Here he said that he had to clear the decks...

    Yeah, as much as I loved the Tomasi run and wish we had gotten the 50 issues we never did, I feel like it's time for a new voice. That said, I'd very much like to see a relaunched Super Sons with...

    Thank Rao, it's over. It's finally over. Hopefully, this will allow kid Jon Kent back.



    Personally, I'd be okay with a Dallas-style Clark and Lois waking up to find 10-year-old Jon there and...

    To be fair, do you have an interest in any writer writing the Superdad version?

    The cast has been in quarantine for a bit now in preparation of filming. If they start filming in the next week or so, in theory, they could have some footage to show by September 12th. That's likely...

    I'd love if it got relaunched with Kelly Sue still at the helm. She's been great.

    That said, as much as I've been loving this run, the cancelation is not that surprising. The book's numbers have...

    Actually, I think Conner at Smallville High actually helped distinguish him from Superman in some cool ways. Clark grew up in Smallville, but left it behind for a faster paced life in Metropolis....

    And Rebirth was more of a sales success than Bendis's run, so that advertising paid off better. The fact that they were hyping Bendis the man rather than a publishing initiative is pretty clear...

    He didn't debunk so much as say that it wasn't for a while, which frankly could still be true if the run ended in February or March of next year when Death Metal wraps up. Anyway, in this scenario,...

    I think the scenario that seems to be happening is that the Bendis's Superman run ends about when Death Metal does. Basically, when 5G was supposed to start. At that point, the narrative Bendis had...

    I saw Jones on a panel at a con once, and, to be frank, she came off as really disinterested in writing. I just came away with the impression that it’s not something she’s generally wanting to do.

    Yeah, it's pretty stupid and boring, which pretty much describes everything Bendis has done with the character, soooooooo par for the course.

    There are lots of ways to humanize characters. Bendis goes to the specific well of the bathroom a lot. He chooses that to be a focus and uses it with multiple characters, so that says more about him...

    The bathroom humor is a well Bendis seems to go to...a lot. There really probably isn't a deeper meaning than he finds that sort of thing funny.
