JMS leaves both Superman and Wonder Woman

I guess it really was likely to happen even sooner than expected. CBR says that overrated J. Michael Stracynski is leaving his writing task on the Man of Steel and Amazonian princess' series, to work full time on the Earth One graphic novels. That's fine with me, since the info I looked over from his run on both was uninspired, and uninterested in writing a story using the supporting casts of the series. If he couldn't do that with these books or with Spider-Man, I honestly can't see why some would consider him a genius.

The 4th Letter notes how JMS has quite a record of lateness and leaving some of his work unfinished. If he cannot set his schedule straight and doesn't have the strength for it, he should not be taking the assignments to begin with. Period. His political views finding their way into the scripts don't help matters.

He may be done now, but as I realize, his replacements are unlikely to be any improvement. Of course, if they continue to go by what they set in motion with the "continuity" since Identity Crisis, there's almost nothing they can do to heal their current status.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • 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.
