Bendis finally flees the sinking ship

Michael Miller
Michael Miller

Brian Michael Bendis has jumped from Marvel to DC in a "multiyear, multi-faceted" exclusive deal. DC made the announcement this morning via Twitter, with the author retweeting the statement.
"We are beyond thrilled to welcome Bian Michael Bendis exclusively to the DC family with a multiyear, multi-faceted deal," reads DC's tweet. "He's one of the premier writers in the industry having created so many unforgettable stories wherever he's been and we cant' wait to see what he has planned for the DC Universe."
The DC projects Bendis will be working on have not been disclosed, nor have details of when the author's Marvel projects would conclude or how it would impact his numerous creator-owned project published under Marvel's Icon imprint.
wew lad. are you boys ready for pajeet Power Girl? Or perhaps Bruce Wayne will enter a gay interracial relationship?

What is DC thinking? They were gaining some goodwill and fucked it up like that. Bendis doesn't have the same draw he used to ten years ago. All this will accomplish is angering readers of whatever book he takes over. If DC is smart, they will put him on some Wildstorm book or let him create new characters.

are you boys ready for pajeet Power Girl? Or perhaps Bruce Wayne will enter a gay interracial relationship?
If Bendis will write them, Power Girl will get blacked and Wayne and Gordon families will turn out to be Jewish.
I suspect that Bendis will be given Wonder Woman title, Batwoman/Batgirl, Cyborg, Static Shock, or Black Lightning. Get ready for Diana and Cyborg to become DC's Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. Especially if he gets his hands on a team book.

Michael Barnes

We can dream, but considering it's an "exclusive multiyear, multi-faceted deal" it's safe to say they're gonna give him free reign on some premier books.

This meme always cracked me up. Marvel became so insanely leftist over the past few years that the "moderately SJW" DC somehow became regarded as anti-sjw to people just because it wasn't quite as cancerous as Marvel.

William Reed

DC anti-sjw publisher
Only idiots with no memory thought that. Hopes were that DC will stop shoe-horning that crap into everything and will become a place that isn't filled exclusively with SJW creators. So far things were fairly alright with most SJW crap being put on the back burner and DC still hiring people who are not far left trust fund kiddies and hipsters.

To be honest, giving Bendis one of the nigger characters that no one likes much anymore would be a good move. As much as we hate that fat fuck, he'd definitely CARE about making a good comic with the unloved black characters and might do something good. As long as he maintains the position of "writer" and not "cuckold-in-charge" we might get some good shit out of Bendis again if there's editors that can tell him and his ideas to fuck off when they get out of hand.

So I've never really followed artists so much as comics I just found enjoyable and I'm pretty much unaware of Bendis and his apparently large impact on the world of comics. Can I get some examples of just how damn bad he is or some of the changes he's made to "diversify" Marvel?

You guys talking bout bendis?

Gabriel Cruz
Gabriel Cruz

The concept behind him of having the next Spider-man be spider-man from feeling guilty over Peter's death, and him learning to take the place of him was decent and fun for the first few comics, but then they didn't do anything special with his character other than running through the same lessons Peter learned, just with a paint job to change it up. If the Ultimate universe had gone on for a few more years, then maybe Miles could have turned into his own character, but they cancelled ultimate, shoved Miles into the main universe which completely undermines his whole fucking backstory because Peter is now alive, and wrote him into a corner where whatever place he was at when the Ultimate line shut down is now the same person he will be until the end of time. So now we just have a basically identical Spider-man running around, except he's black.

Wyatt Parker
Wyatt Parker

They already brought Peter back in the Ultimate line as well. Which was another problem with Miles. Everyone shits on Peter Parker but with Miles pretty much all the heroes, including Peter, tell him how stunning and brave he is, because he's a black guy being Spider-Man

So yeah, Miles was always shit

Kayden Long
Kayden Long

There's a difference between "incredibly boring" and "shit." Miles only became "shit" when they they started shoehorning him into any role that needed a "diverse, black opinion." And made him bisexual because they needed some way to differentiate him from Peter now that they were standing side by side. While he was original boring, they ending up turning his only descriptor from, "Black Spiderman" to literally just "Black Man," and him being spiderman wasn't even a part of the equation in who he was supposed to be as a character.

No, they weren't, the Bat-books have gone to shit, the Super-books are slowly going to shit again, Wonder Woman continues to be utterly irrelevant and lost for direction and there are only a few books that aren't utter shit.

I'm not at all surprised by this, DC always goes to shit eventually after every reboot. I'm just amused it happened this quickly.

Carson Perez
Carson Perez

He's gonna write the fucking Duke Thomas series. It's inevitable. As much as Holla Forums shits on him, he's still a big name creator and he wouldn't go over to DC unless they signed him onto their hot properties like Batman, Superman, Flash, etc.

Connor Mitchell
Connor Mitchell

As scared as I am for what is left of DC’s good name after hearing about this, I can at least take some delight in seeing Marvel being hung out to dry in this matter. Bendis is an objectively shit storyteller, but Marvel Comics invested every single coin they had into propping him up as king of their shit pile. With him ditching them, who do they have left that any notoriety or past archive of well-received works to fallback on? Nick Spencer? The man’s name is worth less than garbage after Secret Empire fell through. Who else is there that is A) a talentless College-SJW only good for shitslinging on Twitter, B) already been let go for flopping humiliatingly badly, or C) both?
Miles Morales is in legitimate danger of dying now. His increasing redundancy and the wildly flip-flopping tracts he stands for in regards to indentity politics have pissed off even SJW followers of comics. If he doesn’t get a genuinely good writer and storyline ASAP (like that’ll happen), he’s gonna be left in a ditch soon enough.
Jessica Jones is also gonna flounder too. The receptions for her comic and TV show are rapidly cooling off, without her main writer there to keep making a pet out of her, she’s damned to the dustbin.
And Rito Williams? Forget ever hearing that name again.
I’ll never understand why Marvel ever thought that enabling Bendis’ vicarious (((Black Excellence))) fantasies was a good idea, but the fact that they did is proof enough that they deserve to be abandoned on their hospital bed by the man that put them there with their life support cut off, like is about to happen. And that is joyous to see.

But at least DC is trying. They brought back Wildstorm, created Young Animal imprint, and are planning to introduce many new characters in Gray Matter. They also take risks with books like The Ragman, and unlike Marvel they do not shun creators who are not far left faggots.

With him ditching them, who do they have left that any notoriety or past archive of well-received works to fallback on?
Mark Waid and Dan Slott, of course. As far as young ones go, they also have Jason Aron.
Only semi decent writer left is King. Felipe Smith could be good, but he obviously stopped caring about Ghost Rider, and Spencer can write something interesting once in a while but he has to be supervised by someone competent to do so.

Sooner or later it will backfire. People can only take so much crap before they will start making their own stuff out of frustration or turn to foreign produced media.

American comics are already playing a second fiddle to manga, and European books become more and more prominent thanks to the digital distribution. Video games recently have witnessed a small indie Renaissance, Japanese games make a comeback, as do AA games.

I suspect that it might have all started with Storm.
It also might be down to the fact that producing thunder is a pretty generic power nowadays. Not as much as flying, super strength, regeneration, or bullet proof skin, but still pretty common. Another "power" popular among black heroes is having metal armor or body parts.

Connor Collins

"Black Bomber" was originally intended to be the first ever Black Superhero before they created Black Lightining. McDuffie just took the concept and made him into an actual character. He was original going to be a white bigot who transformed into a black man when under stress. My favorite quote ever comes from this. "[He] would later be described by comics historian Don Markstein as "an insult to practically everybody with any point of view at all.""

<cuck/co/ mods being that fucking lazy and casual in comic books to sticky the third thread about that there
Possible fates of his remaining books at Marvel:
Invincible Iron Man under either Rosenberg, Brisson, or Ewing; fuck Riri off back to MIT; Tony Stark's return in or and #600 should be hyped
Jessica Jones to be either cancelled or given to new female writer and new artist unless Netflix S2 premier date is announced
Defenders under either Brisson or Walker; be open to new team candidates
let every writer who wants to write Mile Morales a chance but enhance/repair his characterization and supporting cast first; don't let his current artists leave Marvel
United States of Murder Annual cancelled for good
Powers probably to Vertigo (but Oeming must be off Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye for that to happen)
Scarlet also to Vertigo (don't forget that Vertigo will have a 25th anniversary celebration soon)
Punisher: End of Days to any suited and competent writer based on Bendis notes; suggested artists are Matt Horak and Goran Pavlov

As for Bendis on DC, he should give him a headstart by restricting to minis, annuals, and alternate universes, and obey every editor. There's also a rumor that he's been offered by Geoff Johns to DC Films.

There's no way they'll do this. Bendis might be shit to you and me, and pretty much anyone who's read his work, but to the suits he's top-tier talent. They aren't going to give him some book nobody cares about.

I think that Bendis could write good shit again if the editors treated him like a new writer again, but I'm sure he has some clause in his contract that they only get to veto 1/3 of his idea or some stupid shit.

Yeah fucking right. They don't sell enough to calm his ego. Just like how he promised he'd return to Brilliant, Spider-Woman, and Moon Knight at some point and refused to admit they got canceled. He's a jew first and foremost.

As for Bendis on DC, he should give him a headstart by restricting to minis, annuals, and alternate universes, and obey every editor.
Again, you're really overlooking Bendis' massive ego. Look at his work output for the last few years. He's either wanted books that tie into movies/TV shows (GotG, Defenders, Iron Man, Jessica Jones), books where he pander to SJWs (Miles and Iron Man), or books where he controls a line (X-Men, and again Iron Man). He's probably going to get JLA and Wonder Woman right off the back. He'll be on a Batman book eventually and it'll have to be the most important Batman book of the line.

Isn't it kinda racist of all these liberals that, the only time they ever show two brown people in love with one another, it's in an "urban" film.

I knew they would as soon as I heard the marriage announcement.

Bat-Books are gonna be double-fucked with them both on-board. Snyder's writing is retarded enough by itself but with Bendis? It's a recipe for disaster.

Look on the bright side… This is pretty much an admission of guilt from Marvel that Bendis is no longer as successful as he used to. There have been rumors circling around that Civil War II was such a financial bomb on top of being a critical flop - you'd be hard pressed to find even the most staunch Marvel shills willing to say nice things about that event because 1) event fatigue 2) obvious cashgrab 3) not as good as the original Civil War. CWII did so badly they tried extending the event allegedly because Bendis did not like the original ending, but that is total bullshit: he always intended Riri to replace Tony and have Carl Manvers as the winner of the conflict. He extended that event to get some extra crash. And not to soon that event was over, they tried their best to erase it with Secret Empire.

Its the end of an era. DC has been covering Eddie Berganza's ass since the 2000's. He somehow kept a job at DC despite it becoming an open secret that Eddie groped female DC employees.

If Bendis is getting his job, then we're replacing bad with worse. Just think about.

Yesterday, Bleeding Cool reported that the DC Rebirth ongoing titles would be moving to a plot-art-script production system rather than the more common plot-script-art system, in order to give the lead artists on titles a greater control over storytelling. It is often known as the “Marvel Method” after its adoption by Stan Lee to speed his work in the sixties, even though it is hardly used at Marvel Comics anymore. A Marvel insider tells Bleeding Cool.

The Marvel method can actually be more time-consuming if you are not used to it. And given DC’s penchant for editorial input, makes changes harder as they will be caught later in the pencils.
It means there must be a level of trust between writer, artist and editor. Everyone needs to be on the same page going in. Lots of discussion beforehand. And once you commit to a plot, the editor knows that the artist will, of course, add their own interpretation to things. The editor has to be a little more free-wheeling, knowing there will be less time for corrections.
This was used in the 70s to push through stories they knew would be controversial. Turn it in at the last minute and no one has time to make corrections. They’ll have to publish as it is or miss shipping. You can look at it as a way to make books come out faster, the writer does less work up front, the artist gets the script earlier. Sure, it sounds reasonable but that does not account for every step after the penciler
If a page they don’t like comes in, the editor has to go back to the penciler for corrections, which loses you a day, or go to the inker or colorist for changes, which costs more money – and also might piss off the artist.
Then lastly, there’s the script stage – so the writer can only script once the last page is in. Usually, they do not want to script the whole story until they see it all complete. They do not want to script it page by page. Which means you have to trust your writer to turn the script around in a few days. And it then becomes a huge burden on the letterer. If a letterer has a full script, they can start production very early, the same time the artist does, get the text formatted, balloons sized, and they start dropping in as pages come in. With the “Marvel method” they need to wait until the last minute.

Jessica Jones will have a new creative team next spring consisting of a TBA female writer and TBA artist, while Miles and Riri's books will continue on with new creative teams also TBA:
though I will be relinquishing control next month I have been assured by my friends at marvel that miles, riri, Jessica and all the satellite characters around them will continue in fine marvel fashion.
truth told I was already leaving Jessica after purple, for a marvel project that is sadly no longer, and had already picked my replacement. she is amazing. I will not be updating you on marvel’s plans here as it is theirs to announce and certainly not my place. but do not take that as anything but me respecting the process. I am so happy for all m’babies next evolution.

Heeey! Proof of life for my out-of-town friends. Considering where I was two weeks ago, this is a genuine Christmas miracle. AND I’M JEWISH :) Though those theories that it’s actually Earth 2 Bendis joining @dccomics are becoming harder to diffuse. ( that’s still a thing, right? :) ) But someone’s joining the portland avengers initiative, I can tell you that!! :-) again, thank you for the nonstop outpouring of well wishes. It absolutely was a huge help. I am so happy I can get back to work and put all of this love right back into the pages for you

Meanwhile, Bendis will write his top five DC characters within his first year as DC exclusive.

That or some other team book. Considering Bendis' health and him being a newbie to DC, he will probably be given one or two books max.

My guess are Justice League and Justice League Dark.That covers both Supes and Zatanna, two characters Bendis mentioned in past as ones he would like to write.

Do you think Dini would go so far as to join Marvel and shit on Jean Gray
Kitty Pryde, Riri, Jesica Jones, Cage, and Miles would be far better targets. Seeing Pryde lose control of her powers and going the way of Sneek Peek would be pretty satisfying.

Kitty used to have that distinctive curly brown hair and wear a Star of David all the time. And how would Bobby not know that she's Jewish? Or was that a "joke"?

Early 2000s were good years for him. If they hadn't overuse the fuck out of him and he cut it out with turning every character into a Jew; he likely wouldn't be as hated as he is these days then again he might've ended up as the new editor in chief and went batshit insane with it if they didn't burn his way of writing out.

Clark/Superman will become an insufferable manchild, just like Starlord did after Bendis took over GotG
Alternatively Clark will get the Sentry treatment

He still has some fans if twitter and tumblr are anything to go by.

Batman has been shit for quite a while anyway, so putting Bendis in Gotham ghetto is pretty much getting off easy. Nealry all Gotham characters have been ruined already, so there is not much that Bendis can do to make things worse.
I bet that Duke will be made into DC's Luke Cage if Bendis will write Batman.

Maybe we might finally get the same Bendis that wrote Daredevil all those years ago but I doubt it.
It's not very likely. He had an opportunity to do it with defenders, but didn't.

muh creator's birthplace Cleveland influenced Bendis to accept the DC deal, write Superman, and create a brand-new villain
Superman will relaunch from twice weekly to monthly with a new #1 on July 11 under Bendis's pen as an adventure-driven book
Action Comics (will become monthly already starting with #999) will take a two-month hiatus; #1001 will be released on July 25 also under Bendis delving into Clark Kent's daily life
"The last runs on Superman by Dan Jurgens and Peter Tomasi and Pat Gleason have been phenomenal runs, and my run will be following their runs. We're not throwing anything out, we're not abandoning anything, we're following what's been going on and taking it to surprising new areas." — Bendis

He will crash and burn. Sales will initially spike, but after three to five issues they will dip below pre-Bendis levels. From then on, book will steadily bleed readers until Bendis is off of it and gets another title to ruin.
Bendis can only write street level crime stories, and even in those he has a stable of stack characters that he keeps reusing over and over again. He will go as far as to change character's personality, just so that it fits one of the few archetypes that Bendis is comfortable writing. It's just constantly the same once dimensional manchild, tormented woman, tough guy with a heart of gold, a cuhraazy exploitative villain, and so on. He tries to hid it behind Banter and pop culture references, but more and more people are catching onto it.

If you give Bendis something that isn't conventional low-powered character fights street crime, he falls apart. Moon Knight is street level, but the mental illness angle and mythos surrounding him were too much for Bendis to handle. In the end the book ended up being so horrid that not even most of Bendis' fanboys will defend it. Bringing it up to Bendis is a good way to get a reaction, especially if you do it in person. His Avenger runs and Guardians of the galaxy are absolutely horrid as well, and Bendis managed to cripple their previously good and consistent sales numbers.

There are no comics outside of Marvel and DC
Why would someone torture himself by reading big two exclusively? It makes no sense to do that when other publishers put out good books.

I think I'm beginning more and more to realize that the main problem with cape comics is that when I look at them, I always see the same fucking names from the past two decades or more. The best years of comics were when new blood was being ushered in every other year and they were all teenagers or young guys not middle-aged, past-their-prime dudes.

Maybe to really fix comics, we need to fire the whole old guard and get some fresh youngsters who actually have fun story ideas on-board with some older editors to supervise.

Jeremiah Turner

Maybe to really fix comics, we need to fire the whole old guard and get some fresh youngsters who actually have fun story ideas
Better editors would be the first step towards this. Ideally with a limited social media footprint. Most newer hires are basically hired thanks to cronyism usually due to twitter interactions. So then you have editors who can't tell bigger names like Bendis no, but they can't tell their friends no either. So it's all a stream of shit.

Marvel might have done the most to hurt the idea of new talent with readers. When your new hires are likes of Rivera, Leth, Henderson, etc. you completely erode the trust readers have. So when you actually have some new talent that gives a shit and is wanting to tell a fun story, they're going to get ignored. I have some very minor hope Cebulksi might turn it around. Getting talent was his old job and actually traveled around to cons looking for new talent, not just checking his followers.
