There may be changes in store for Avengers, but what about Bendis?

Newsarama reported a short time ago that still more changes are being planned for Avengers:
As we look back at the five years since the Avengers were relaunched, it's apparent that drastic changes were made in order to clear way for the direction writer Brian Michael Bendis wanted to make to the franchise.

Yet according to Marvel's marketing about the upcoming Siege storyline – the four-issue, Avengers-centric mini-series by Bendis that begins in January – there are even more drastic changes to come.
Yes, and if Brian Bendis is still being kept as writer, then we can't expect those changes to be anything great, even if the Scarlet Witch is finally redeemed.
"What happens in those four issues are as big a change to the Avengers franchise as when we came on for Disassembled," Bendis told Newsarama. "The aftermath of Siege – who lives, who dies, what the teams are like, how the books are published, who's on the books – it's as big a change as it's ever had. It's a franchise changer."

Siege is being drawn by Olivier Coipel, whom Bendis collaborated with on House of M, with inks by Mark Morales and colors by Laura Martin. The event spills into a significant list of other Marvel titles.
And will bog them down to no end. Something which quite honestly is not needed.
"I'll be writing the tie-ins for both New Avengers and Dark Avengers, and like the Secret Invasion tie-ins, we'll reveal answers to questions, like who secret people are and what deals were made and what's been going on behind the scenes in a lot of books," Bendis said.
I've seen enough over the past several years to know that those "answers" will most likely not be worth reading to find out.

And if Bendis is still going to write and oversee the Earth's Mightiest Heroes in any way, and not relinquish his role to a better writer who doesn't do things the way Quesada prefers, that's why this will only keep on being discouraging.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
