Default Man of steel by Bendis

Not quite that bad. Some nice character moments. But it could have been told over six issues of the regular series.

I assume you're being ironic.

Rumour has it and the cover art for Superman #8 seems to confirm it.

Saw the cover, seems like he supersged Jon what a cliche, Bendis is a hack. We all know aging Bart worked out so well

Does seem like - on the surface - a bad idea. I'm willing to let the storyline play out, but generally speaking I liked the Super-titles before Bendis better, and there's nothing that's been told from a story perspective that has made me feel losing the earlier iteration has been worth it.

I can't say I'm all that surprised by the reveal of Red Cloud's identity. It was never going to be Lois so it pretty much had to one of the two new characters.

A mystery for people who watched the third season of Batman and could not figure out who Batgirl was?

Bendis Superman reminds me of two past books
1 Flash fastest man alive where they got an overhyped writer and super aged Bart
2 Captain America’s when they fired Mark Waid and Ron Garney to give Liefield the book. Over rated creator from another company

I just read an old story from Action Comics #338 called "The Villain Who Married Supergirl".

In it the villain in question claims to have personally destroyed Kyrpton by planting a bomb at its core.

Although it turns out to be a lie I found it interesting that Rogol Zaar was not the first to make such claim.

In Action #1009, Lois calls Superman "Honey" in front of Jimmy. Fortunately Jimmy doesn't seem to notice but it seemed a bit sloppy to me.
