What a load of BS DC. Justice League Dark is no longer its own comic but a back up story to Justice League. so now i gotta buy Justice League to get Justice League Dark?

First you cancel my Hellblazer now you pull this BS with JLD

but god forbid we need Batman Detective Comics Manbat Batman Superman Batman Catwoman Batman Vs Ra's al Ghul

So Phillip K Johnson has confirmed in interviews that Future State will deal with the Superman lineage in a very "Fall of Camelot" sort of fashion, and also interpret Clark as a cosmic caligula who has his way with several women after Lois passes away.

...Yeah, this character is just f*cked with or without Didio. They just don't get it.

So the storyarc purpose after Joker War is Batman gains untrustworthy allies in Clown Hunter, Harley Quinn, and Ghost-maker? That was a little too easy of an ending with Bruce getting him to agree not to murder inside Gotham and that is is buying dinner. The Bat-Family is already too large and needs some trimming and Bruce allowing people with blood on their hands while keeping Jason Todd around is hypocritical? I don't get this direction. This is why we need Peter Tomasi!

It's like I keep saying about everything going on for the last few years - dumbest f'n generation to ever walk the Earth. These creators and "idea people" are so far gone that they aren't even putting together that they are digging their own grave as far as livelihood goes as sales keep slipping away, slipping away, slipping away.

Too dumb to know the market. Too dumb to recognize their audience. Too dumb to stop what they are doing. Too dumb to see the market for their BS doesn't exist.

Advance spoilers for Death Metal#7

Spoiler:
Diana kills The Batman Who Laughs after he offers her and the universe the chance to start again as a paradise. This impresses The Hands, who were coming to destroy the multiverse themselves, and they offer to rebuild...but there will be a price. Diana vanishes, and everyone has a big 'yub nub' party

We then see how the multiverse is healing, Future State exists as a potential timeline, there is another Earth simply called 'The Elseworld', some people are said to have been resurrected, and the Justice League and Legion of Doom have merged to form a super group housed in a Black Hand Fortress.

The Hands were who imprisoned Perpetua within the source wall to begin with, they're also entities that have occasionally popped up in many cosmic DC titles and stories over the decades in both minor and slightly major ways.

That was a head spinning read and I have read most of the issues referenced too. I just assumed The Hand was God's that Korna observed. So God, The Anti-Monitor, Volthoom, Perpetua are The Hands? I am getting dizzy.

So I finished reading Death Metal's finale just now. Sometimes it felt like a really big lump of sugar candy.

So BC were right in we now have to call it the DC Omniverse from here on out.

I have zero interest in the Future State books



Geoff Thorne kicks off this interview talking about how BC gathered up his various tweets and comments lambasting Hal Jordan to stir up s*it on the internet.

To save me 56 minutes having to watch it, is Hal Jordan without a title for the first time since Green Lantern: Rebirth?

How does the DC Omniverse differ from the ending of Doomsday Clock? Wasn't that an omniverse of some sort?

I am taking January and February off of DC as well. Hopefully there will be something for me aside from Justice League#59.

He briefly dropped the Robin mantle after he fell out with Bruce and the Teen Titans, and didn't have an identity for a while during his appearances towards the end of Tomasi's Detective.

Well, that's that. Bendis may have a few projects left to do at DC, but he is no longer exclusive to them. He can go back to Marvel if he wants to.

So what's the consensus on The Bendis Experiment?

I gave the first couple issue a try when he came on but it didn't entice me to stick around. Didn't hate it, but didn't love it enough to make regular hour-long roundtrips to the comic book store. And his dialog suuuuuucks.

On Superman I actually liked the first Man of Steel issue a lot. The rest of that mini series was okay but not enough to hook me in enough to read the main series. I dipped back in with the public identity reveal to see what it would be like, again I thought it was okay but not enough to keep my interest.

Didn't read his Legion of Superheroes. I know some like it but most Legion fans seem to hate it but they are pretty finicky bunch when it comes to their favourite franchise.

Bendis was very up and down for me. I think he put his best effort into Superman all things considered, the United Planets concept is a really interesting one, Clark being put in charge of that can inform cosmic tier stories for a while and it seems they'll be getting to that sometime this year.

The public identity reveal was handled rather well and it's a great feel-good issue...not much else was made of Clark outing himself afterwards though, but then, Bendis' run was cut short not long after once it became apparent his sales weren't improving.

But if Superman was his best work on the character, his simultaneous Action Comics run was attrocious. It was this series that gave us some of the more unlikeable Lois moments (she's much warmer and lovable in Superman) and characters that didn't pose much of a threat at all in Leone and Red Cloud. The Melody Moore mayor plot, along with her bonding more with Clark and being taken into his confidence, also ultimately didn't lead to much other than a brutish demise for her character.

Just a lot of directions that led nowhere, and perhaps there was too much of an awkward sort of cheese piled on top of some serious subject matter?

Ultimately Bendis' biggest failing was the 'trauma', or lack thereof, inflicted on the Super Family. Lois abandons her son to space with genocidal Jor-El and he winds up tortured in an alternate earth for years...and comes back to Earth relatively level headed? Clark punches a few glaciers out of frustation with this but cools down, and Lois seems to get over it i too....I get Bendis wanted to show the family could rise above anything, but you can do that if spread a little more across months and years, not right freaking away!

Never bothered with his Legion series.
