    It might be. But this also might have been his opportunity to write a black teenager with electric powers and he took the ideas he had for Static and applied them here. It might not be the case at all, but it just caught my eye.

    Don’t know if we’ll get many details, but I do want to at least get an idea of what Bendis’ long term gameplan for the franchise is.

    So it sounds like Kevin McGuire will be handling the art on the purported “President Superman” story, maybe? And he didn’t deny that Lois isn’t the one going to the future. I still think it’s probably Melody Moore, but Lois would be my second guess with her weird dream from LL #1.

    And I really really want Nicola Scott to take an arc of Lois Lane or Action Comics.

    She’s doing part of the Millenium arc, so maybe she’ll do more? I love her art too, and her partnership with Rucka always puts out solid work.

    I think she’s mostly busy with Black Magick. The only reason she did Wonder Woman: Year One was it was a dream project for her.

    Yeah, Bendis says he was really excited for her to take the Booster Gold portion of Millenium and how her and Rucka have their partnership going. Basically, he badly wanted to work with her and the Millenium thing was the best he could do at the time. Though her and Rucka did just wrap up I think another arc of Black Magick and she does take other projects between that. Wonder Woman: Year One was fantastic. I'm just greedy.

    Can't wait to see McGuire back on Superman. Really loved his work in Man of Steel. And apparently it's supposed to be an adventure of the rip-roaring sort, so that in and of itself will be great to have. I believe that's gonna be the missing Fortress of Solitude story. So, likely either a good ol' fashion two or three parter with a pretty classic crazy premise. Thankfully it seems like we'll be getting a few quicker stories with McGuire before Reis comes back. Really looking forward to all of this.

    reading that last point I guess my only downside for Jon in legion is him probably not getting to have a lot of screen time with so many characters on the team. Hopefully he can get a spinoff book if the series sells well.

    As usual, Bendis says all the things I want to hear.

    I'm still not sold on giving the Legion to Jon at the expense of Clark's origin (his reasoning is sound enough but I still dont like it!) but everything else is very much in-line with what I want out of Superman. Been years since I enjoyed a run this much, or was so excited for where the property was heading. It feels like, for once, we're actually moving the mythos forward instead of constantly re-working the past (more or less, that Legion thing still burns my ass). And since I'm not one for nostalgia or retreading old ground this is a breathe of fresh air.

    Yeah, this is why I'm torn. I like so much that he's done, but the few things I hate I hate bad, lol.
