Brian Michael Bendis, the architect of the modern Marvel Universe, has finally jumped ship. The man who created Miles Morales and even wrote the post-credits scene in Iron Man has signed an exclusive contract with DC. While no details about the deal have been set, rumors are circling around the internet as to what he will do. It’s likely that Bendis will help his old friend Geoff Johns retool DC Entertainment as they expand their characters into other forms of media. But, at the end of the day, Bendis is a comic book writer and there’s no doubt in my mind that he will be announced as the writer on at least one new book coming from the publisher.
Bendis, who has written everything from Jessica Jones to The Avengers and even the Guardians of the Galaxy, is a detail oriented story teller. The buildup to series like House of M and Secret Invasion took years as he deftly weaved in hints that teased audiences about just what he had in mind. Similarly, Scott Snyder, the mastermind behind the current DC event Metal, is a meticulous plotter who weaved clues about his vision throughout years of storytelling. Now that the two are in the same sandbox, there’s no telling what DC can achieve! There are so many characters that Bendis can put his personal touch on once he begins working at DC, but there are a few books that come to mind first.
