Default Brian Michael Bendis exclusive to DC

https://www.newsarama.com/37241-bria...exclusive.html

truly not sure how I feel about this. I did not like his Avengers and how he reworked an incredible amount of continuity to suit his stories but I do have to say I am enjoying his Defenders run. I truly hope that DC will not give him the carte blanche that Marvel appeared to when it comes to his stories and his treatment of their characters.


Hoping for a Phase 6 with FS Statues of the following

  • Moondragon
  • Mantis
  • Wonder Man (in the Perez Designed costume)
  • Havok (need a new one in his classic costume because the existing one is too expensive on Ebay)
  • The Red Guardian (The Defenders member-this one is a longshot)
  • and a REALLY GOOD Phoenix Museum pose

Darn. I am really liking his work on Spider-Men 2. Too bad for me, and Marvel....

To play devil's advocate though, anything I ever read online or heard from people at my LCBS is that Bendis's forte is more solo characters. I definitely see him doing Batman but I do agree, do not give him any group book.

You beat me to posting this, but for me: cheers and celebration. While I think he has some talent as a writer, he doesn't write superheroes very well. Agreed he writes solo characters better and to me his best work at Marvel is the original Alias series which is a solo book, and while she has powers, it really isn't a "classic" superhero story.

I also consider him to be one of the people responsible for Marvel being in the position that they are in now. When he first started with Marvel, he brought in new ideas which helped revive the company, BUT he (along with others) went so far that they destroyed what made the Marvel Universe/Comics special.

Although we will never know, I wonder if the recent realization of the drop in sales caused this from upper management, or he sees it all falling apart and wants to bail now.
