We now have a report on Bendis’ first work with DC Comics, though it only points us in the direction of where we might see the superstar creator start his work with DC Comics. The report states that Brian Michael Bendis will be teaming with DC co-publisher Jim Lee for a backup story in Action Comics #1000. While we don’t have any confirmation on the story, or even a confirmed date for the issue, it will presumably release in April to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Superman.

Not only does the issue celebrate 80 years of Superman stories, it will also mark the first ongoing comic to ever reach the milestone of 1000 issues, something fans everywhere will be celebrating when the issue releases. If Bendis’ backup story focuses on Superman, it could be seen as him testing the waters, or diving in headfirst with one of the companies biggest characters.

Bendis recently signed a multi-year exclusive contract with DC Comics after spending almost 20 years at Marvel Comics. The writer recently tweeted about the official start to his DC contract, despite having a few Marvel series to finish off with his Marvel contract. The secrecy behind Bendis’ upcoming DC work is a testament to the excitement that has built up around his move from Marvel to DC, and we hope to hear more announcements soon to follow up his Action Comics backup story.

Keep it locked to GEEK for more from Bendis’ new role at DC Comics, which is sure to be felt by the whole universe once he starts digging into the DC sandbox of characters. Which characters would you like to see Bendis take on now that he’s at DC? Do you think Superman is a good hero for Bendis to start with? Let us know in the comments section below and join the discussion on the GEEK FB page!
