Default Superman 1000

Overall I liked the collection of stories, but I'm still unsure of Bendis on the Superman titles. His story here feels like the modern kind of "everything you know is wrong" kind of storytelling I'm wary of in the modern day. On the other hand, I could see it actually pulling through in connection to the Mr. Oz story in an interesting way if that's not forgotten entirely in the soft reboot.

I'm a little bit wary of Bendis undoing things, but so far the tone of his Superman seems spot on.

I just want him to take the character forward without undoing Jon and the Super marriage. I honestly can't sit through Lois & Clark starting from scratch one more time.

Yeah I really think the rumors - if true - of undoing the marriage would be a bad thing for the title.

Bendis has been making the right noises in interviews about building on what has been established. It remains to be seen how that plays out but in the meantime he's made a strong start with a cliff-hanger I'm interested to follow up.

I liked that he included Supergirl from the beginning. I wouldn't want them to in each other's stories all the time but sometimes when a cataclysm looms you do wonder where the other one is.
