The Absolute State of Marvel (and DC) - Superman gets thoroughly Bendised

Well at the very least it is keeping him away from Avengers and X-men that are generally much better for that.
-ZacWilliam, I joke... sorta. I was not a fan of most of his Marvel runs (save Ultimate Spidey) at all but he does seem to be doing much better at DC from what I have heard people say at least.
Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

Man, I'm really annoyed that Marvel's ending their main Star Wars comic at #75. #50 was clearly meant to read as the exact midpoint between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back, and the fact they didn't end it when Gillen left at #67 made me assume they'd be going to #100.

And as a follow up to my Star Wars complaint, I was going to post something I saw in the December Marvel solicits, but when I went to double check some info they'd been taken down, the site posted them early. I don't want to risk Disney's lawyers coming after me posting about what I remember.

Ended up buying the issue because they referenced Aquaman.
Hated the story for being stretched but whatever. Issue one is the only cash Bendis will get from me.

Most of the first wave of Hickmanian X-books have launched now - I think Fallen Angels is next week and that's all of them. I've enjoyed them all so far. They're all a bit more "now let's just do books about established X-Men characters acting like themselves", which is NOT what HOXPOX was. HOXPOX was a bit "here's a crazy story to set everything up, and everyone's acting like a weird robot clone or something".
I like having the entire X-universe hanging out together in one place, like the good old days at the mansion, but... well, I'd rather it was At The Mansion in Westchester rather than... freaky living island guy. It's nice to have all the characters available to swan past in the background of the books they don't belong to. And there are some very interesting characters being used. Like, Mondo in New Mutants... Mondo was barely used in Gen X when he debuted, despite being a prominent part of the pre-launch publicity, and he's made bugger all appearances since AFAIK. Black Tom in X-Force. The Excalibur roster of Rogue, Gambit, Jubilee, Betsy and Apocalypse is like... can you build a cooler X-team than that? (And of course you can, but it's easy to choose boringer guys.)
The one thing that didn't impress me so far is X-Force #1
That's not to say the book's irredeemable, but it's the only debut issue so far that left me with an aftertaste of anything worse than "that was interesting".
As an X-Men fan for decades, a dude who was pulled into the wider world of superhero comics by the X-Men, it's really exciting to me that we have a relaunch here that I'm enjoying so much after years and years of books that just never grabbed me. Interestingly though, apparently this Hickman stuff has been in the works for years and was placing limitations on what the intervening X-books could do, which may well be a part of why they never really sang? It sounds like there was lots of "you can't write what you want because it steps on Future Hickman's Future Toes" which is rarely a great environment for writers to flourish, but it's pretty much the status quo for shared superhero universes so maybe it isn't a big deal.

im gonna give this morbius book a few issues before i really judge it...but i dunno, i REALLY (i am the only one i'm sure) loved the last morbius book...the one where he wore a hoodie and helped people in a neighborhood? LOVED it so much.
But that Ghost Rider book? Almost unreadable...that stuffs bad, sadly.
