I'd be happy with that but why so soon? the creative teams just changed 

#5 Posted by Delphic (1461 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm not quite sure how I feel about that. Lodbell has been hit and miss for me on the three titles he's currently working on. Having another title might make things worse.

His 3 current titles are great, I say bring it on.

The man is already on 3 titles, I don't see how he could possibly keep up on the work load.

Another new writer? I am not amused by this.

#10 Posted by ReVamp (22863 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, I'd consider reading it if Lobdell wrote it, so that something I guess?

#11 Posted by TDK_1997 (14456 posts) - - Show Bio

First,Scott is doing a great job with his other 3 books and the best one is Superboy and second,why?Sups just got a new creative team.

Interesting.......very interesting

Would he be keeping his other titles, or dropping one in favor of Superman?

#14 Posted by noj (1067 posts) - - Show Bio

That would be pretty cool. I would be fine with him dropping Superboy or maybe Teen Titans in favor of Superman but I would want him to stay on Red Hood, UNLESS Judd Winick would be up to writing it then I would be cool with him dropping it. What I really want though is for Teen Titans to get a new regular artist. I dont dig Brett Booths style.

The guy who did the last issue (I forget his name) did a good job, I wouldn't mind him staying on Teen Titans

Meh, Superboy has been terrible and Teen Titans has been all over the place. I'm not amused.

Brink Mark Waid on board and then I'll pay attention.

@Deranged Midget: We need better writers for Supes.
#18 Posted by Thorion88 (310 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd rather have Peter David on this but since that's too good an idea I'd expect Rob Liefield to take this title over in the near future instead.

@Primmaster64: Yeah, Grant is holding his own on Action Comics but once Batman Inc comes out *sighs*, I'm guessing his focus will drift away. Superman is in extreme demand of a good, no scratch that, an excellent writer.

@Deranged Midget
Why can't they get A-lister writers to write Superman? Grant can't do it on his own. The only people I can't think off either have other titles, are no longer in DC or are Vertigo writers.

Given the Fact writing for Superman seems to be a revolving door at DC, tis only a matter of time before that happens.

@Primmaster64: Sad but true, Brian Azzarello had a pretty good run on Superman: For Tomorrow but he's stuck with Wonder Woman. Mark Waid wrote the spectacular Birthright, but is stuck with Marvel, as with every other good writer.

I'm hoping that DC's plans are to IMPROVE Superman not defile his name with writers like Rob Liefield *shudders*

@Primmaster64: Best to prepare in case the worst happens imo, cause I expect another creative team change after about 3-4 issues myself.

@Deranged Midget: anyone else? Scott Snyder?
#27 Posted by Thorion88 (310 posts) - - Show Bio

@Deranged Midget:

I'll go as far to say DC doesn't even know what to do with the Superman franchise imo. Which is pretty sad cause you'd be expecting them to be building up hype for the Man of Steel movie at the least.

@Primmaster64: As much as I would to see that, I don't think Superman is his style :/

I'm trying to think of others right now.

@Thorion88: A sad fact... Honestly, if it continues this course, I'm sad to say that it might even become cancelled in favour of Action Comics to simply continue on it's own if they don't find a good writer to take over.

@Deranged Midget: I also wish i could honestly say I care enough to be disappointed but DC mucking up Superman at this point should be nothing new so. *shrugs* Oh well.

I can see it. Superman discovers an undercover Kryptonian cult he never knew existed in Metropolis, which leads to the crossover "Night of the Flamebirds" or something to that effect.

Eh, I'm down with Scott writing Superman. He's doing a relatively good job with Superboy and the Teen Titans where he's already toyed around with some of Grant Morrison's ideas (N.O.W.H.E.R.E. and Danny the Street). It'll be interesting to see what he does with Superman. Honestly, short of a Mark Waid comeback, the resurrection of Mort Weisinger, or me getting a Superman run of my very own (fat chance) I don't see myself getting too excited with any other writer working on the character outside of Grant. I like Snyder a lot but I'm not sure how well his style fits with Superman. Maybe it's something 'd have to see to believe.

It's interesting that DC can't seem to stick with any one creative team for Superman. I feel like they tried to keep it the more conservative title for those who were afraid of Superman changing too much from the Post-Crisis version. The conclusion must be that no one misses the Post-Crisis version THAT much...

Ill post more thoughts on this later. Right now I just hope they dont put brett on art.
Edit: Okay, what I feel is that it could be great if they add a good artist that matches scott's style. I hAve enjoyed all 3 books from scott so I cant say Im not thrilled by this news. But Im cautiously optimistic. Because I can see that Scott will be doing tons to bring out the other characters in superman family and build up the franchise. But Scott would need a artist that suits his style. Reason I think Brett doesnt suit this style is because scott has lots of exposition and dialogues so his artist needs to draw lots of panels while brett's art is beautiful its done better in splash. Which is why I see the mismatch there. However I do think that TT is pretty fun, I have alot higher expectations for Superman. So as long as the artist suits scott's style then Im good. I do hope Scott reinvents some of Supes rogues and we all know supes really need that now.

Relax bro. Honestly if you guys read scott's current work on the titans, you can tell he has big plans big ideas. I can easily see the young justice taking the route of xmen and if we're lucky we might get a movie or two. Scott has been delivering, but I gotta agree that quality suffers a little when he got swamped with too much work. But the ideas are all there and they're pretty good imo. If he does take over Superman, one thing is that he would be continuing stories from the first 12 issues. Another thing is that he would be taking lots of Superman's rogues and supporting characters and develop them with a new twist. Just like what he has been doing. So relax for now. Besides, it may not even be true
