Man, Clark ended up a grandpa much sooner than he would have imagined.
This podcast interview with Greg Rucka reveals some details on the Lois Lane comic
The first storyline deals with the fall out of Lois being caught kissing Superman in public back in Action Comics#1004.
So Bendis was on word balloon again. He said editorial did actually meddle with his run in a fairly minor way, telling him he couldn't reveal Clark had the ability to grow facial hair by flexing his jaw muscles
What issue will that be? As stupid as "Lois having an affair with Superman" is, it sounds entertaining.
I admit, that sounds like a pretty silly idea.
Like, I'm not sure if it works, and I don't think it would ruin things, but I don't really feel anything was lost there.
I wonder if he suggested it as a joke?

It actually would have made perfect sense in the Silver Age.

With the cliffhanger of today's Justice League, I'm beginning to regret the amount of exposure DC are giving Lois Lane lately...especially when they seem hell bent on depicting her in the worst ways possible
The World Forger tells the League the Legion of Doom are going to give the people of their Earth a vote on whether or not to embrace Doom or Justice. Forger wanted the League to agree on determining which people will select doom and put them out of the way. Failiure to do so means the Forger will eventually replace the current universe with a utopian one he created. They all refuse (except Batman) and the Forger sends them to his new universe's Apokolips, which is a big security prison containing lots of villains. The warden is someone who has destroyed Superman and other League members in the past, and unmasks to reveal it's Lois.

This kind of reminds me more of Dark Nights, with an evil alternate version. Kind of awesome that a Lois Freaking Lane has become a Dark Warden of Apokolips.
So today's issue of Suprman establishes that Jon's return to Earth takes place immediately after Jor-El's ship comes under attack from Zarr, Zod and Jax-Ur, Jon's super-suit transports him to Earth and he crashes into the pool of a shopping mall, this leaves no time for Jon to have gained the scarring that's visible on his face when he returns to his parents. So either he somehow gains the scar while on Earth (or gained it when he crashed through the window of the mall housing the pool), or Bendis neglected to cover that part
The premise of Year of the Villain follows up on what was said in JL's "Sixth Dimension" arc and sees Lex Luthor coming to several key DC characters and making them an offer to fulfil their potential by embracing their darker side. Superman fans have speculated that this is why he showed up at Lois' hotel room back in 2018. Lois likely turned down the offer, but has kept quiet to Clark about the nature of his visit.
Here's a Lois Lane variant to Superman#13

The Lois and Jimmy Olsen books are 12 issue maxi-series. Also Lex will visit Lois in July to give her "the offer" as part of Year of the Villain arc
One for the What Could Have Been files:
Patrick Gleason has revealed there were plans to give Jon a sister if he and Tomasi had stayed on Superman, Lois was originally going to find out she was pregnant at the end of "Imperius Lex" (the family's adventure on Apokolips)
New Superman/Batman title coming from Josh Williamson and Dave Marquez
Official details on Superman/Batman
I like the idea of a little sister for Jon. I'm really wishing that had happened, particularly since I'm not a fan of the direction Bendis has taken the books.
Well, there is always the option of immediately undoing his run once Bendis leaves.

"Boring and unnecessarily weird"

That almost counts as a compliment for Frank Miller given what he's written in the past.

*Looks at Watch* “It’s Miller Time”
Seriously though, Frank “the God-Dammed Batman” Miller is nuts. note although I have heard even he considers Holy Terror to be an Old Shame
John Romita Jr. is a great artist though, at least.
