    IIRC, Doomsday did that to either Booster Gold or Blue Beetle during death of Superman. I forgot which one, though.

    Also, why does Guy feel he has something to prove?

    The best Guy is shameless Guy.

    The magic of Geoff Johns, I guess.

    I never understood why he's so in love with the villains. They are iconic and all, but this dude seems to have a crush on every archenemy from Sinestro to Thawne to Captain Cold to Black Manta to Ocean Master to Black Adam, etc.

    I wouldn't say "mad" but it's not like Hal was all that chummy with Sinestro last time they saw each other.

    That's probably why he's regarded as the best writer for those characters .

    He’s fantastic. I am re-reading Geoff Johns GL run and really enjoy his work. Van Scriver is still my no. 1 though.

    Looks like Hal and Clark are interacting again in Superman #39 it's nice that these two have been teaming up so often lately.

    I always love seeing Superheroes doing stuff like this, and it's all the more nicer getting to see Hal be a part of it as well .

    IMO, Johns has actually diminished the heroes to a agree by doing this.

    Barry seems less of a hero given all the pain Thawne has caused. Barry killing Zoom before the first Crisis, be it consciously or unconsciously, made sense given all the pain Thawne inflicted leading up to their final battle. Thawne was literally a half second from killing Barry's bride to be.

    I did not like how Hal seemingly held stronger feels for Sinestro than John, Guy, Kyle, and Kilowog. His bros in green went to hell & back for him while Sinestro almost literally caused Hal to burn in hell with the Parallax conspiracy. I was so glad that RV wrote Hal showing nothing but contempt for Sinestro.

    Did Kyle get any retribution for the death of his mom due to Sinestro? That should be a source of contention between him & Sora.

    Black Adam might be more popular than Billy Batson now.

    I think only Aquaman might still be ahead of Ocean Master & Manta, but I have not followed that book in a few years. But it was a running theme by Johns to show Aquaman as a serious hero. Aquaman raising Jackson is the perfect retribution shy of killing Manta, imo.

    I think villains only in the class of Darkseid should have the ability to get away with acts of evil. Part of that is the fact that only a small handful if heroes can actually hurt him.

    Saturn Girl's pleads to Darkseid to return her son makes sense to me. She does not have the power to defeat Darkseid. While the Legion being able to stop his plans of conquest is one thing, it is another to invade his territory, and apprehend him, without suffering major losses.

    Which is really ironic since Johns writes the most lame Darkseid. He has no problems with Darkseid catching L's while he Mary Sue'd a lot of the villains you mentioned.

    Johns should have been a hog in slop writing Darkseid.

    See?

    Had Hal taken a nap, he would not have been so cranky.

    Time off is a good thing!

    Guy did not technically see it, either.



    Ted got wrecked, too.

    I guess my memory did not completely fail me as Ted & Booster caught serious head injuries.

    More than anything, the DC heroes are meant to inspire.
