It’s amazing how DC can destroy all the good will they have garnered in Rebirth by literally destroying the Superman family and churning out countless Multiversal events like it’s going out of style.

giving Bendis that much control over the Superman titles is a mistake, you can’t even read any new Superman comic that’s not written by Bendis without the Justice League or Batman hogging the spotlight. There is literally no alternative to Bendis now, so I guess I’ll stick to reading old Superman stories instead, this is just like the The New 52.

DC has been utterly shameless about burning down Rebirth for “Bendis is coming! Bendis is coming!” It’s amazing Rebirth ever happened at all.
