Now, now. It's not Punchy's fault that he's not as intelligent as I am.

If I hadn't even hit puberty yet and was still one of the premier members of the board with a cult following and proven to spark debate where ever I go, I would have to be a child genius.

So either I'm a genius, or I'm old enough to wank. The balls in your court.

Bendis' earlier work which includes two of the best runs ever on superhero books, as well as his none superhero work elevate him above Johns. Furthermore Bendis looks towards the future (killing Alpha Flight, his new Avengers, Ultimate Spider-man) whereas Johns is preocupied with the past (fear bug, Hal Jordan, Barry as Flash).

A typical Bendis retcon (e.g the Illuminati or Beyonder) will often contradict continuity, but provide interesting new ideas to propel the universe forward. Johns retcons (supermans origin or Yellow fear bug) will be there to reset things to the status quo and how they were originally.

Hence why a lot of older fans love Johns and hate Bendis. Johns will bring characters back constantly, and always look to please character fanboys. Bendis often ignores continuity and characters to make a story stronger which will piss off character fanboys.

Apart from that they're both on major titles with a lot of free reign, but also restricted as they are the companies flagship, and don't want to lose too many readers. Johns GL has descended into a mockery as it's just different coloured lanterns fighting, whereas Bendis' Avengers seems to be tying in to much to the past whilst playing fast and lose with continuity.

That was remarkably coherent and possibly almost entirely free of ridiculously-grandiose claims. :?

Who did you get to post that?
