Brian Michael Bendis who wrote almost every single comic for Marvel for what seems like forever, left the Merry Marching Society and is now working for their rival D.C.
Being that Bendis is Bendis D.C. decided he should be writing one of their tentpole characters, Superman (his first issue will be in May). Here is where things get a little interesting for me. Bendis seems to want to somehow give the Big Blue Boy Scout a connection to Judaism.
I feel it’s important to point out that Bendis doesn’t say anything explicit about giving Superman any kind of Jewish heritage (otherwise I would have quoted it here). However there are hints that Jewish comic fans may be interested in when his first issue hits the stands in May.
