Bizarro World Continues As Brian Michael Bendis Goes DC Exclusive

This is the equivalent of Hulk Hogan signing with WCW.

Further proving we're living in a Bizarro version of Earth, aside from having a reality television host for a president, Brian Michael Bendis has signed an exclusive deal with DC Comics, as announced on Twitter Tuesday morning.

We had to double check the date to make sure this wasn't an April Fool's joke and this was confirmed by Bendis himself.

Bendis has worked exclusively for Marvel since 2000, where he's worked for every major title and has been a driving force behind each major event. Bendis' only previous DC credit is 2000's Batman Chronicles #21

For those unfamiliar with the writer, The Outhouse has put together a handy list of things DC readers should expect from Bendis.

  • Kitty Pryde being put into this universe. Somehow Bendis will put her and Luke Cage into a DC Comic.
  • Dialogue. Lots and lots of dialogue.
  • Arcs to take an entire year to finish because Bendis loves to spread things out.
  • Continuity? DC Rebirth's whole status? Flushed down the toilet to whatever comic Bendis hits because of his unique take on continuity​ i.e. he just doesn't fucking care.
  • If anything good that can come out of this, Bendis will have Tim Drake will be revealed as the gay Robin after all these years of speculation.
  • Also ninjas. Lots of ninjas.
  • Legion of Superhero fans? Fear the Bendis! For he is coming to destroy your comics!
  • Watchmen Beyond by Bendis
  • You thought an Alan Moore-less Watchmen property was bad before? Wait till it's been written by BENDIS.
  • Forty panels of Batman emoting a single emotion.
  • Flash: Decompressed
  • Brave and the Bald
