During this interview, he thought that Bendis was taking a crack at Lois Lane in The Pulse #2. I, personally, never got this from reading this issue and I thought the storyline made perfect sense. Has Bendis ever said anything about it or is Loeb just reading into it too much?

He also made the Sentry = Superman comment again which still makes no sense to me. Just because he's really strong and can fly doesn't make him Superman. The addiction to his superpowers, the Void, and his origins all make him, to me, a really unique character.

What do you guys think of the interview and his comments?

Sorry, I know that was uncalled for but I've had that "Welcome to _____" shit done to me plenty of times in the past so I can't resist unleashing it on someone else when the opportunity presents itself.:)

Had a feeling that might happen. I looked through the last 2 pages of stories, didn't see it, so I thought no one posted anything yet.

Damn, I NEVER have an original thought!

Post what you want and if someones already posted than the threads will die. I think people are trying to put Loeb and bendis into some sort of battle and i dont think it exists. They are just two good and popular writers with different styles.

Man I'm glad I dropped Superman/Batman. Just sounds like Jeph Loeb is being whiny because he's not DC's golden child anymore and he's taking it out on Strazynski and Bendis. He's being replaced by Winnick, Azzarello and Johns, and I bet it eats him up.

It may not due 100,000 but most writers would kill for his 40-50,000 units.

Actually, I remember noticing that when I read PULSE #2... Besides, he used actresses names, and he uses famous peoples names ALL THE TIME!

Agent Del Toro... Agent Woo...

I can't even begin to count the times when I've been reading a Bendis comic and heard a random person in the comic called by a celeb name. And often they die. Seriously, go back and read every USM from Doc-Ock's first appearance.

Tons of 'em.

I'm pretty sure Loeb and Bendis are pals, so this is probably just busting balls, if anything. These quotes have been brought up before and Bendis has said it's a non-issue.
