    I think that's a young Clark.

    On second thought, that makes a lot more sense. Also the interview says the 6th issue of man of steel will bring some of the biggest status quo changes to the characters since crisis..I find that hard to believe after everything that happened since 2011 lol, but we shall see!

    Wow, two books + a mini series sounds like a lot. But I don’t hate Bendis as much as people on this forum do, so I will just wait and see. I have Supersons so I don’t have to worry about Jon

    So, as always, top artists to carry Bendis dead weight while he "shocks" us with nonsensical, ridiculous reveals that "no one saw comming" (basically because it makes no sense at all), all filled with juvenile and unfunny jokes and pleanty of annoying "bendisspeak". I forsee a divorce (or, at the very least, a break up) in the future. And someone else will take over for Superman. (did I miss any of his troupes?) I wonder who Lex Luthor will call a "fat cow".

    Peace

    He said he was going to build on what Tomasi was doing on Superman, but also would focus more on Superman. That sounds like he's going to put Jon and Lois on the back burner, only appearing once in a while just to show that he's a family man.

    Other than the mini and Action #1,000 I didn't see any artists mentioned to headline the two main books. Or did I miss something?

    Normally I'd be annoyed at a single writer getting both books, and I was hoping Bendis would bring someone new to handle whichever book he wasn't going to be on, but this is still an improvement over what both books have going on right now.

    So I'll take it.

    Bendis also has a major miniseries coming to shake up the status quo for the Kryptonian hero.


    And here's the cover art for the mini, which at first glance looks like it'll be something of an origin story.





    "The Man of Steel story will debut a huge new villain, a blockbuster villain who connects deeply to Superman’s origin story and to his birthright," Bendis revealed. "We’re going to dig in very hard, this is one of my goals, to be a additive to Superman as possible. The characters we debut right away, including this new villain, will send ripples of horror across the entire Superman family and beyond!"
    So something to do with Superman's origin.

    Wow. How freaking stupid. I was loving Superman, with Tomasi's writing. Why give him basically control of everything Superman? Why not just Action? I'm ticked.

    Further evidence this MOS may be the new official origin:

    Now listen to me, Clark! This great strength of yours--you've got to hide it from people or they'll be scared of you!

    Also more hints that Krypton was deliberately destroyed.
