I'm still way behind you guys, having just finished the 'Haunted' storyline. Somehow, I managed to avoid learning Bart's fate until I read it. I honestly was quite surprised by this. So the JL has lost their first member (or are we counting Carter/Hawkman? I view him as JSA). The flashback scenes with Clark and Bart were a nice homage to the show.
The closing pages of #40 was quite touching as well. I really would've liked to have seen this acted out between Ally and Tom on the show, though I'm sure it probably wouldn't have come across the same. It was a nice departure scene for my favorite character. Though I assume that she and Ollie will be back at some point, she will be missed.
