Am I missing something? What title and what issues are the man of stew miniseries in? I have action up until 999.

Man of Steel is Bendis’ mini-series leading up to #1001 and Superman #1. It’ll come out from the end of May to the beginning of July.

That is right. I believe is a 6 week mini-series just like back in 1986 and leading into Action #1001 and Superman #1

Man of Steel will be a stand alone mini series that is out later this month. It will be a weekly series.

Even if Bendis does great things—and I hope he does—I gotta say, I’m bummed that it means we’re going back down to one issue a month.

Jeez…
I often wonder what the whole cancellation of the SuperSons might’ve entailed because of this.

“The devastating repercussions from the Man of Steel miniseries..”

I hope Bendis didn’t kill off Jon or Lois, or perhaps something along the road just as many people predict that he would do. X(

@DW13 I wouldn’t put it past Didio to gladly sign off on that either.
The Rebirth stuff with Superman made me get a pull-box for the first time in years. A move like that would make me cancel it immediately. I really do get the feeling he’s going to muck with the marriage and even Superman’s origin in some awful way. I really don’t want to be right about this.

I hope not for the marriage. I fight for that. But ironically, I don’t feel the same concerning Jon. I know it sounds bad, but when it comes to Superboy, I think of Clark growing and Connor. Jon just doesn’t exist.

er… what is it about Jon that you somehow don’t connect to? Hell, everybody loves that kid & they all stated that he’s one of the best if not the best characters in the REBIRTH and the SuperSons series has now become the fan favorite out of the whole DC line. :D

I guess one have to ask – Dose Superman, as a character work better as; 1) single guy, which offers greater flexibility or, 2) married person, which offers greater stability ?

MattComics

I think he works as both and it just depends on where he is in the continuity of any particular iteration. (Presuming of course we’re not doing the old-school thing of having the characters in stasis. Which isn’t necessarily terrible so much as it’s fallen out of favor except for in cartoons like The Simpsons). The love triangle is great I enjoy it but has a bit of a shelf life to it in terms of narrative progression. Basically let’s say there’s a Superman tv show. Well you can do the love triangle thing for roughly the first couple or… Read more »

Also if this supposedly changes Superman’s origins what does that mean for the work that Geoff Johns has been doing with Doomsday Clock? Will Bendis be throwing the proverbial monkey wrench in Johns plans for Superman? Or will Johns use Doomsday Clock to fix Superman once more from Bendis meddling if there is anything.

Rebirth/Reborn Superman has been the best Superman I have read in a very long time. I’m a little scared cause wasn’t it Didio that said married superheros don’t relate well to the public? I hope Rebirth proved otherwise. Hopefully Bendis won’t take a crap on Superman like the New-52 under Didio did and I hope he doesn’t do some stupid pc crap like Superman’s parents werent Jor-El and Lara they were JorEl and Luis.
