    Default Would You Be Open To Tomasi Returning to Superman Right After Bendis' Run Ends?

    I've just reread the final arc of Tomasi's Superman run, and I was reminded of how brilliant in places it was. By god it's not perfect, but it's exceptionally good. With it's introduction of the fan favorite Jon Kent to the Superman mythos, it might as well go down as the defining Superman runs of the 2010s, a probability much more lucky than Bendis or even Morrison talking that honor.

    I wouldn't be opposed, but not really thrilled. The monthly pace would probably help but I've already had much of his work and would prefer a fresh perspective if not the return of a writer whose run I enjoyed more

    I don't know if Tomasi would want to. Going by what's been said, Bendis really diverged from the path Tomasi wanted to go.

    rather have someone else take a turn honestly, Tomasi had his turn.

    Honestly, as much as I liked it by the time they left I was ready for a change. It was basically a four year run compressed. I'd much rather Tom Taylor get a crack at writing the real Superman books. I used to want Tom King, but his Walmart book shows he'd write it like everything else, so no thanks. Tom Taylor on Action Comics would be awesome.

    Gleason was cowriting it as well and he's exclusive to Marvel for the foreseeable future. It wouldn't be the same without him back.

    No way. I wasn't excited with the Superdad direction or the focus on that kid, and I believe Tomasi would just go back to that full on. Besides, Tomasi is a middling writer, in my opinion. Superman needs someone better than him.

    Not at all. Not like I think he's the worst Superman writer of all time by any stretch of the imagination, but all the same his Rebirth run was half decent, half god-awful, making the whole thing even out at blah. And I don't want a return to the wholesome family stuff. I love wholesome familes IRL. I AM part of what would probably classify as a wholesome family and I wouldn't trade it for the world. But its not what I've ever read Superman for. The art was the best thing about the run overall.

    Read the first two volumes and found them really unremarkable, so definitely no.

    I loved his run when he was actually writing it, but no I wouldnít put him back on after Bendis, nor do I think Tomasi would come back if offered. Thereís other writers I would like to see take a stab at Superman: Orlando, Seeley, Fraction, Hickman, Priest, Hill, maybe even Simone or KSD. Tomasiís bread and butter is the family relationships, specifically father-son relationships. I wouldnít mind him getting another Super Sons series, but I want an epic run on Superman and I donít know if Tomasi is interested in that kind of story.

    And towards the end of his run it felt like he was running out of steam. Tons of incredibly boring filler ended up killing his run. Tomasi has said Batman is his favorite character, and Iím enjoying his Tec run right now. Let him play around with the Bruce-Damian relationship, and maybe someday get a Spectre run. He was an editor on Spectre for Ostrander and I enjoyed his House of Penance book.

    I would love for him to return.But, i don't think that is happening.
    All i really want is, for someone to retcon unnecessary age up of jon and Clois being shitty parents out of existence. Bendis's run is ok, but nothing special. I would also like someone to actually give the superfamily some real Stakes. Tom taylor seems to be good.

    Sold.

    All good humor aside, if Tomasi was instructed to write it a little edgier, he would. His 'Tec stuff certainly is a lot sharper in that regard.

    Y'know, you say this an awful lot, but from what Bendis has done so far with Lois and Jon, you're kind of still getting the wholesome family stuff, just handled a little differently. The whole point of Bendis' run is to said to be how the Super Family copes with very dramatic turns together, that's pretty wholesome.

    I think we've been getting that with Bendis, and it'll ramp up significantly with Year of the Villain if Lois accepts Lex's offer
