breaking the law and blatant bias in journalism are now a-okay according to Superman

Egads. Bendis’ Superman is going to be one enormous AMERICA-tier run that’s never going to end

DC fights hard for a hack writer that nobody likes
they instantly give him control of their flagship character and all his spinoffs once he joins
even going so far as to advertise his run like the second coming of Christ
Welp, see you later DC. It's been real.

They don't learn anything from their own mistakes, why would they learn anything from Marvel's? Take Superman Grounded as your template for what's going on, add heavy handed political commentary that would belong in a title like the Movement, and hand it to a Jewish cuckold. Completely godawful.

It's funny you should bring that story line up. I recall even at the time, people were angry at it for trying to stuff politics into Superman. If I remember correctly, the response from Straczynski and the media was the same old "Superman has always been political! If you complain you're not a real Superman fan!" Also worth noting, is that story was co-written by G. Willow Wilson of Ms Marvel "fame".

There's so many buzzwords here, none of which address the actual problems that muslims, gays, jews, and ILLEGAL immigrants cause for the country. The kind of bullshit Bendis envisions for the world only works in a fantasy comic book where men can fly and shoot lasers out of their eyes.

Also, Clark Kent is a legal citizen. No part of his story has ever revolved around him dodging ICE agents and paying shady criminals to get him a stolen SSN and other falsified documents so he can exploit the system for free benefits.

<I'm surround by such a diverse society, and I don't see that reflected so much.
Meanwhile, Portland is by and large white with Hispanics as a distant second, Asians as a third, but somehow Bendis only made nigs.

Come on, OP.
That aside, the interview is full of pandering without very little information. Basically:
Superman will have to deal with the fact that he would not be Superman if Krypton was not destroyed
There will be a new villain who is connected to that angle
Bendis won't reboot anything and will not disturb the continuity
He did not say anything staying consistent with characterization, however. Only thing he mentions is that Superman is all about hope and Louis is a strong and independent woman
Journalism will apparently be important part of the story
Metropolis is going to be a sanctuary city/city of immigrants
There are implications that Bendis will push his political views in the book

Metropolis is going to be a sanctuary city/city of immigrants
Why the hell would a city in the Midwest have what sounds like West Coast values? Not even places like Chicago, and New York are hellbent on being sanctuaries. Did Bendis even set his foot in Midwest? Superman also doesn't quite work with the Muslims and some other immigrant communities, since he is fully Americanized. He was raised in the U.S. by American parents, and the American part of his identity largely supplanted the Kryptonian one. Not to mention that Superman is a legal citizen, and most legal immigrants dislike illegal ones. But how would an upper class man who was educated in private schools know that? He does not know shit about immigrant experience.

He is disgusted by how cable news channels have cleverly seized on the creed of objectivity and redefined it in populist terms
Well, that sounds mildly interesting
They attack news based on verifiable fact for its liberal bias, in essence, failing to be objective, and promise a return to 'genuine" objectivity." [sic]
Of course. Why can't it ever be acknowledged how most mainstream news twist information to make it as eye catching and entertaining to their target audiences, and to push station's agendas. CNN is probably the worst station when it comes to distorting information, fanning flames, and stretching stories to fill the airtime.

I mean, I don't know jackshit about "Raven Red" or "Man-of-Bats" but if that map's right then a fucking indian reservation has above half the population of Metropolis, in general all the big cities are empty as shit.

Outside of elseworld's, most of my comic book experience with Superman is Byrne's run, which set Metropolis in Kansas. Animated series set it in Midwest too I also remember Smallville and Metropolis being within a driving distance from one another in some books.

Geography in DC is inconsistent to say the least. Some books have Gotham set by the lake, and If they set it on East coast, they often don't agree on the state it is in. Same with metropolis. It was located in the Midwest, Eastern states, and right by the New York City.

Milwaukee has some really rough neighborhoods.

giving Lois her own stories

Didn’t DC already try this like 3 times in the modern age and it failed abysmally all 3 times? To loosely paraphrase Max Landis “Nobody gives a fuck about Lois Lane.”

Without leeching off Superman, she’s a worthless, pointless character. Doubly so since she is involved in one of the most corrupt professions in the world. An honest journalist is rarer than an honest politician.

Is this actually official or just some shitty DA thing?

They've been consistent with placement for the last 30-50 years, really. The big ones, Gotham, Metropolis, Central City, Coast City and Star City have been kept in place for some time; by the silver age that was worked out. The other cities with less exposure were never really given a location.

Nathan Gonzalez

I remember from one Elseworlds story where he became President that they ruled that his emergence from the matrix on his little spaceship counted as "birth", so he was legally born in the USA.
Of course that wouldn't explain how Clark got his on Earth-1.

It's not being a /pol/tard to care about how Bendis is about to utterly rape the shit out of the entire Super family. I guarantee you, Lois will divorce Clark and then start dating a black man. Guaran-fuckin-tee it.
Because Bendis hates white people, and hates Superman having a normal happy white family.

In the Silver Age, the Kents took baby Clark to an orphanage as a foundling, later legally adopting him.

In the Modern Age, the Kents found baby Clark, then a freak snow storm hit, lasting long enough for the Kents to pass him off as their own child.

Of the two, I prefer the Silver Age one.

"Dan's plans for the industry are great"

While everyone is flipping their shit about jews and spics, this right here is the most dire news.

Having lived through Didio's prime years at DC, his plans are never, ever, good.

Zachary Butler
Zachary Butler

It's because there is some information on what Bendis is planning, while there is nothing on Didio's plans yet. Some of DC's recent decisions appear to be reasonably good, like having an imprint for each target demographic and experimenting with formats. However, they did hire some questionable people to work on books for these imprints.

When I was a kid I just thought of Metropolis as a stand in for NYC and Gotham as a stand in for Chicago. I was actually disappointed when I learned the truth.

I like how of the entire Southeast Louisiana is the only one that ever gets remembered in superhero comics. Most likely because it has bead and titty time. I shouldn't complain though, DC at least doesn't have all their superheroes in one fucking city.

Everyday I thank the stars that Robinson has the rights for Jack Knight. While it sucks that we won't get Jack in any cartoons or TV shows, it's also preventing DC from bringing him back, which I think more than makes up for it.

Except Metropolis is always portrayed as a coastal city, so it being that close to Smallville never made sense. Either that, or DC's USA's geography is significantly different to real world USA's geography.
