BENDIS IS SUPER

As Man of Steel Ends Bendis Prepares to Take the Reigns of the Superman Family

The six-issue weekly Man of Steel limited series is almost done which will lead into Brian Michael Bendis taking over Action Comics and Superman in July. He has adjusted to working at DC, which does things completely different from Marvel. There are things Marvel does better than DC and vice versa and he has so far gotten comfortable with that. That adjustment is helping with the sequel to Words for Pictures he is working on. One of the things we have seen with the Bendis Superman stuff so far is his love for the Daily Planet. He sees the Planet as a major part of the character. Clark could have not done anything and sat around the Fortress of Solitude all day but he decided to be a reporter because a reporter can look for the truth in a place where Superman can’t. In Action Comics #1000 he introduced Rogol Zaar because he saw that Superman had some great foes but needed more. After going through Superman’s history he called DC Co-Publisher Dan DiDio and asked if DC had ever done a story about what really happened on Krypton and got a response that led to the creation of a villain that would get under Clark’s skin like no one else has ever has. Bendis then named him after the doctor who saved his life.
