"This guy starts thinking about superheroes at a level where most writers leave off."
- Sean Collins, on the genius of Brian Bendis coming up with the novel idea of killing off characters and having things blow up in "Avengers Disassembled"

For some reason, Sean's quote made me imagine Bendis referring to himself in the third person like Dr. Doom:  "Who but Bendis would have the vision to slip a tamer version of 'Fuck, Marry, Kill' into an Avengers script?  WHO BUT BENDIS WOULD DARE?!  Other men would leave off with the Avengers fighting three, maybe four Ultrons, but such paltry threats are for lesser writers.  For Bendis is BENDIS, and only HE could conceive of a level where the Avengers fight five Ultron robots!!!!"
