    Didio banned him from DC’s offices, he found out when he tried to go visit a friend there iirc. Waid and Didio/Harras hated each other. Only reason he’s back is all those old guard guys are gone

    The more I hear about Didio's decisions, the more I wonder how he got the job in the first place.

    Pretty great interview.

    BL Superman book with Hitch:

    Heh, like how he says it got approved the very afternoon of “the event,” i.e. regime change.
    “Best Superman idea I’ve ever had.”
    Hitch, “I was born to draw this project.”
    Talk about hype, love it!

    Batman Superman book with Mora:

    Regime change… phone rang off the hook all day,” ha. Sensing a theme here.
    “Batman and Superman more interesting as friends… the world is a better place when they are friends.” Take that Miller.

    Cool convo about Silver Age, Morrison more of Silver Age writer than Waid.

    On the marriage: can’t/shouldn’t undo it at this point, and wouldn’t want to. Just doesn’t feel connected to it.

    Another forthcoming interview once Superman stuff is “officially” announced. Awesome!!

    Another one surrenders to the Supermarriage. Yes, YES!

    2. He was talked into trying anyway and so he sent in his dream Superman pitch
    3. Everyone loved it and it got sent up to the top for final approval. Didio gave Waid the middle finger out of spite and rejected it.
    4. Didio gets fired and Waid’s pitch is immediately approved

    He doesn’t say it was specifically Didio but thats clearly who it is. Happy ending for Waid and now I’m curious to see what this pitch is. Hopefully Waid’s dream Superman pitch isn’t something basic lol
    Ah, Didio...

    Not quite lol. He’s not a fan and never will be but he doesn’t want to OMD it and he doesn’t have to. Waid is living the dream, he gets to write mainline Superman in a team up book with Batman (another character he’s wanted to write outside of JLA) and he gets his BL book where I’m sure Clark won’t be married to Lois. Best of both worlds.

    I really hope if he’s going to be hyping up the BL pitch as his best ever that he’s basically going balls to the wall in terms of Rogues. I want to see as many of them as he can fit into one story not just Lex (PLEASE God let Lex not be the main bad guy much as I love Waid’s Lex).

    Accepting it's the law of the land and not trying to undo it is submission, ergo victory for the Supermarriage. :P

    When will they learn the modern "Worlds Finest" doesn't work because the World's Finest doesn't work with them as this juvenile "diametric opposites" junk.

    They're going to be friends in this run. A lot of writers (like Yang, seemingly) enjoy them as friends.

    But you are correct, it's not really the World's Finest... Because there's no Robin!

    100%. But then since Dick Grayson is now Nightwing, it should probably be Nightwing as part of the
    troika. Superman was after all a very important mentor for Dick.

    Kinda curious how Waid will write the relationship. Doubt it will be as simplistic as the Loeb take given Waid of all people doesn’t see Clark as “just” the light to Bruce’s darkness. How will he contrast the two I wonder?
