Wonder why they never had Supes temporarily become a taxi for some inane sting operation? Those old comics had a lot of stories involving tricking criminals or aliens. We need more of those stories.
The Speed Force is the reason why the Flashes don't cause problems like friction burn when they run. So where's Superman's excuse whenever he breaks the sound and later light barrier?
For that matter, outside of the Speed Force how do these super characters even 'see' when they fight faster than light?

The "Darkseid Was" one was more intriguing.
So is this going to be some kind of apocalypse story? I might be interested.

Because Jimmy Olsen is the bee's knees.
Well they have had solo series in the past before.
Yeah, but neither of them has had one since the 70's. Besides, unless Jimmy goes balls-to-the-walls Silver Age, I don't think he can really hold a series on his own. Same with Lois.
I think a Lois solo book can work as a focus on journalism in a superhero universe. I have no idea what Jimmy's book would be about but I'm of the opinion the guy hasn't really mattered to the Superman universe since the Silver Age ended.
Looks like one of the Superboys will be getting a different moniker.
Seemed like an obvious move. How will they decide on page? Rock–Paper–Scissors?
The Bendis run may be in trouble, Superman and Action are apparently now selling lower than levels seen before he took over, with customers openly saying that this is no longer "their" Superman
Huh well thats apparently backfired.
It's almost like longtime readers that make up the majority of your readerbase don't like major and unwelcome change.
I'm not going to cast judgement yet, but I'm not really happy with grown up John since Tomasi Superman is basically my bible for the character.
Its darkly amusing.
They brought in Bendis hoping him being a superstar writer would print money & placed him on their already good-selling flagship hoping the combination would lead to perfection.
Only for it to backfire because Supes was only selling well due to Tomasi's writing (the comic was previously faltering) & going by this Bendis' writing is not up to par.
Goes to show ya that no writer automatically prints money. They all have theit successes & fails.
As much as I love Bendis' old Marvel work maybe they should just have given him Action Comics and let Tomasi and Gleason continue their Superfamily book.
Action Comics is still in the Top 10. It's sales are dropping but that happens with every book and there could be a number of reasons why besides "not my Superman".
Edited post. Sorry.

It performs well on week-of-release, but the monthly summerisations show Action does sell less than Superman
Teen Jon is a bit prettier than I thought he'd be.
This poor boy...
