I'm sure he will be "cancelled" for believing something different than the Twitter mob.

I’ve been reading it the whole time and, honestly, regardless and independent of the subject matter, the writing’s just not that good.

It doesn't sell, huh, as expected.


When Bendis made Jon artificially grow up, i should have known there was something pc, woke ,sjw behind it... They don't do anything else anymore.

I was very sad when Jon grow up, suddenly. I was expecting to read Clark, Lois, Jon family for years and years... Especially Father and Son relationship of Clark and Jon... may be even Conner coming to picture as a big brother later... :/ All these ruined, missed opportunites for what... sjw, woke, pc agenda or whatever you call it... Don't get me started about Super Sons... That title was so adorable and fun... :/

But, we show what we feel about what they do with our money, i believe. The only language, a greedy company like DC would understand.

I agree, I did not like him aging like that either. Even though I have enjoyed a lot of what Bendis has done while writing for DC, that decision I did not like. (Personally I think that Dan Didio was thrilled about getting Bendis from Marvel that he was just letting him do anything)

I almost wish that we would see a story where the real Jonathan Kent is still a 10 year old being held captive somewhere in the Earth 3 universe and that the current Jonathan Kent is an artificially aged clone.

Though the one piece of work that Bendis did I avoided was the Legion. He took the easy way out by rebooting them instead of honoring past continuity and working from there.

Just checked newsarama, seeing your post.

Yeah, another big event that is claimed as the biggest event ever by DC. Some deity called The Great Darkness who pulls the strings of everything from Anti-Monitor to Barbatos etc. is coming... xD The Great Darkness was created by Alan Moore in his Swamp Thing run, as a not very significant villain.


Eh, ok, i will get the omnibus... (:

Ah, the newest ultimate being in DC. Reminds me of a line from a song by The Who: “meet the new boss, same as the old boss”
