Re: What the continuity nazis have wrought
Because he's using the "blackest night" concept as the basis for a story; it doesn't work in its original form, so this is more a case of taking the core premise (and some of the characters) and using them. It's pretty good so far (though the origin revisit was too long, in my opinion).
