So unless you live in one of the Dark Multiverse worlds, you surely heard the news about the DC Comics exclusive contract signed by super-scribe Brian Michael Bendis. This is huge news in the comics industry as Bendis has been largely credited with spearheading the modern Marvel Comics Universe, writing and creating many titles and characters.

So many fans are asking themselves “What now?”. Well, Bendis’ track record is pretty varied. He has written everything from teenage superheroes (Ultimate Spider-Man), gritty urban vigilantes (Daredevil), police procedurals (Powers), cosmic adventure (Guardians of The Galaxy) and noir (Alias/Torso/The United States of Murder).  With a resume like that he could tackle almost any kind of comic. So with that in mind, I propose five existing DC properties the writer would be great at. Keep in mind this is just MY opinion, as no one knows (yet at least) what Bendis may be writing.

What titles/characters do you want to see him write? Comment and discuss below!

2. Gotham Central

Gotham Central was one of my favorite books of the early 2000s. Created by Greg Rucka, Ed Brubaker and illustrated mostly by Michael Lark, it was a police procedural set in Gotham City. It had a huge cast and a deep mythology to play with. Now if you ever read Powers by Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, you know that also had a similar concept of cops among superheroes. But imagine if Bendis was allowed to play with that concept again but with the sandbox that comes with Gotham and its rogues. To me, it seems like an almost perfect match.
