The DCYou was a deliberate departure in the soul interest of something new. For some of Marvel's titles that's for sure what they started out doing, but they seem to finding a really nice balance now.

    Whatever the case, I'm down for something that's not our current Superman stuff, and I'm basically hoping that it turns out good if not great. No real telling how Bendis will approach the character and what from his previous works will carry over, but I'm down see, and I wish him and his team the best of luck.

    Well, the current rumor is that his art team on Superman will be Reis and Prado, so Lee is just for this #1000 backup. Considering the former rumor is true of course. I think his grand debut being Action #1000 lends a lot of credence to the rumor though, for reasons Superlad and others have already pointed out.

    It definitely sounds like Bendis is poised to take over. You don't get a name that big and just stick him on Superman's anniversary issue just cuz, unless it's a prelude to him starting a run.

    Bring it on I say. We need a shakeup ASAP. As for Lee, I doubt he will stick around longer than the backup story.

    I mean, yeah you do. Even if Bendis wasn't doing Superman, I wouldn't have been surprised if this had still ended up his DC debut.

    Lee's an odd choice for Bendis, but he was inevitably gonna be somewhere in here, and I guess pairing him with the Big New Name makes sense.
    You can follow me on Twitter or Tumblr, if more of my opinions sounds like something you'd like.

    At the moment, we just have to take this on a "test the water" basis. Also Bendis may not yet be in any shape for a sustained run given his health scare, so a little easy traffic like this can be good for him in the long run. A short story won't expose him, it'll give readers a "feel" for what he can do...and there's actually no guarantee he will be writing a story set in the present either (which would be a big indicator he'd be taking over), especially given his Superman bucket list included wanting to write him "very back to basics"

    Amazon has Action Comics vol.6 available for pre-order stating:

    "Classic Superman scribe Dan Jurgens (THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN) continues his epic return to the Man of Steel in SUPERMAN: ACTION COMICS VOL. 6, collecting issues #1001-1006."

    Hopefully Jurgens does stay on as I've been really enjoying the books since rebirth.

    I thought the rumor was Bendis taking over Superman after his backup in Action 1000..

    Key word here being "rumor".

    I think Bendis probably has a great take on Superman. They key for him is to keep the stories smaller. Focus on the earth based villains and Clark Kent the reporter, and I think he'd churn out some good stories.

    I know this isn;t a popular opinion, but Bendis is easily one of my op 5 comic book writers. His Ultimate Spider-man run is what got me into comics and is probably one of the best runs on a major comic book character. His Daredevil run is, in my opinion, THE best run on a major comics character ever. There are others that come close, but that run is phenomenal. I am very, very excited by the prospect of Bendis on Superman.

    I mean this is a pretty good sign that he might be taking over after this backup. It's still a rumour at this point but I won't be surprised if we hear an announcement confirmation this month or in February.

    Remember all the buzz when DC landed the Kubert brothers years back, and they ended up doing, like, a handful of covers before quietly fading away?

    I hope this Bendis acquisition is kinda like that.

    Or it could be like with JMS, who had a hand in one of the more controversial runs of any comic book (which happened to be about Spider-Man also) only to wind up writing the most critically derided Superman story of the 21st century (thus far) and a couple of mediocre graphic novels about the character before he tired of the schedule and departed.

    There's a good idea! Give Bendis the "Earth One" line and let him be.

    It could happen, but I don't think in any way it is a "good sign" one way or another.
    Bendis is a huge name just coming over to DC. Why wouldn't DC want him on a single story in Action Comics #1000 whether he does inherit a Superman title or not?
