Get rid of Bendis. All he does is try to inflate the importance and impact of his own bullshit. Stop with Leviathan. It sucked and was a failure, much like his entire run on the Super books. As for JrJr, I really like a lot of his art from Marvel but his DC works is absolute trash. Stop putting him on books. Seriously. It’s bad. Now, JrJr and Bendis together?

This is a great comic! I read it a few hours ago, let it sit a bit and reread it and loved it! I enjoyed the last run and was sceptical of a new writer so quickly again but this is an awesome start.

Great characterization of the main team. Very nice attention to past continuity, which is always a bonus for me when a writing understands and respects what came before.

"What is a king... to a god?"

I don't really know how we got here story-wise but honestly, after reading this issue, I don't care.

It is exceptionally well written with an art that is immaculate. The new status quo for Thor can serve as a perfect jumping-on point (I'm living proof of that) and the unfolding story pretty much hooks you in form the start.

This is pre-Flashpoint Superman. What he did against Superman then still stands, and to portray someone like Lois not consulting her husband before doing something that important is ridiculous when he’s trying to claim they are that close and trusting. Him losing his powers was not due to HORDR it was a wide variety of things, which you’d know if you’d actually read the titles. But you know what, if you enjoy this go ahead. I’m alright not liking subpar writing.

Mail2g - Dec 17, 2019

It's not "pre-Flashpoint Superman", that one only existed till Superman Reborn arc when a unique timeline combining some events of both New Earth and New 52 was created. Unlike you I did read the comics. Besides Sam Lane could essily march to Metropolis anyday again if he wanted to take him down. And I never said Superman lost all his powers to HORDR, all I said was that HORDR was trying to take his power or sucking his power and Lois revealed his identity. The writing is good, you're whining.

Just about everything except the art. It really makes no sense at all for Superman to give up his secret identity and expose all of the people he cares about to the danger that will result from this. It seems completely out of character for Superman to do something like this. It also seems to be Bendis re-hashing past ideas and having yet another superhero reveal their secret identity.
