"He's one of the premier writers in the industry having created so many stories wherever he's been and we can't wait to see what he has planned for the DC Universe". He has had his hand in creating characters like Jessica Jones with Michael Gaydos, Miles Morales with Sara Pichelli and Riri Williams with Mike Deodato.

As the publisher announced on Tuesday morning (Nov 7) via a tweet that stunned fans, Brian Michael Bendis - the star writer of such Marvel titles as Ultimate Spider-Man and The Avengers - has leapt to DC.

This is real. I love you all.

It will be interesting to see who will be replacing Bendis in the four titles he is now writing and when they will come. "Change is good. Change is healthy".

One of his biggest achievements was his work on The Avengers, which he wrote from 2004 to 2012.

Surprise! Apple's flagship iPhone X is the most breakable iPhone ever…
According to SquareTrade, which sells smartphone protection plans, iPhone X is Apple's most breakable iPhone to date. Videos of various iPhone X drop-tests have been hitting the web since the new smartphone went on sale last week.

No official word as to when Bendis' career over at DC Comics is set to begin, or what properties he's hoping to tackle upon getting there.

On the plus side, at least Marvel Comics is free of Bendis. A Marvel spokesperson thanked Bendis for his tenure with the company and wished him luck with his future projects.

Bendis, now of Portland, Ore., has been Marvel's top writer for more than a decade with stints on nearly every major series including "The Avengers", "Spider-Man", "Iron Man", "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "The Defenders" to name a few.

Bendis was also often trusted to helm Marvel's special crossover event series including "Secret War", "House of M", "Secret Invasion", "Age of Ultron" (unrelated to the MCU film) and the recent "Civil War II". It was a deliberate strategy: "I was trying to break down that Marvel vs. DC craziness that some fans have", he said.
