That'd right. I'd forgotten what it was. Of course the last time something significant was broadcast involving Clark and Diana it was Diana's slaying of Max Lord by Brother Eye. I was kind of reminded by that in the panel.

Me, too, but we actually really don't know that Wonder Woman killed Max Lord in the new continuity. Lord has shown up in OMAC, but with all the JLI stuff gone and Blue Beetle's origin radically revised (thus no Ted Kord let alone Kord dying) we have no idea what the status of that event is. We have confirmation in the JLI annual that Batman built Brother Eye, though.

I'm pretty sure DC has stated "Identity Crisis" and "Final Crisis" no longer exist. Unless they've changed their minds. It's hard to keep up.

Okay. I just finished reading Justice League #12...I have to admit...this was quite good indeed. Probably the best written issue that I've read from Johns, and the relationship made sense with the unfolding story arc. I may have to re-pick up the book again.

Well, Green Lantern Annual leaves the fate of Hal and Sinestrro somewhat ambiguous. They're both clearly out of commision for a while. I wouldn't be surprised to see them pop up to save the day at the end of the Third Army story, though. Speaking of which: hoo boy. The Guardiands truly have lost it, haven't they? I'm looking forward to how this plays out.

I think it's pretty clear since the reboot that the Guardians will not be around for much longer.

Ah the poor Guardians. Noone has a clue what to do with the little bald, blue men these days. I was hoping they would never come back after Millenium, but they did. Even then they left us with the horrible New Guardians which hopefully have now never existed.

Yeah, there's no way this is not the end for the Guardians, unless we're going back to 90s status quo with no Green Lantern Corps. Highly unlikely, though. Frankly, their reckoning has been a long time coming, like since Rebirth practically.

Seriously, did New 52 do ANYTHING right? GLC was basically the one line that sorta kinda lead things for a while in the "old" DCU... I don't want to wish harm on anyone, but I really really wish both Lee and DiDio and would like get their hands caught in a printing press and lose their voices so we no longer have to deal with them and their craptacular 90s revival bullshit. I mean it's like literally it's the frickin' 90s again. For a while it seemed like DC wanted to go back to the Silver Age, now they want to go back to the 90s. I may not have tons of respect for Liefeld but he left while the gettin' was good. It's a shame, they already lost some "Talent", first Perez, then Morrison, now Liefeld, and losing George Perez is really a pathetic blow, since the man was long known for hanging on the Avengers for a looong time, and on Wonder Woman and other DC series - including that early 2000s JLA/Avengers crossover. So it's clear the guy loves both 'verses, but the fact that they lost him because of their own bullshit is pretty sad.

I'm all for streamlining the Universe, I'm all for refreshing things, I'm all for making it easier to go from paper to Digital Distro, but... they basically did a Brand New Day to the DCU and weren't even nice about it. Just 'this is how it is. Don't like it, tough shit."

Didn't GLC Annual just reveal there is another group of Guardians? Big Obvious Reboot Status Quo button: and these Guardians can be like the ones from the 60s, like everything else Johns loves (except Vibe).

Well, we did see another group of people that were of the Guardians' species in today's annual. Just having them replace the current Guardians at the end of this would be lazy as hell. It's really time for the GLC to stand on its own. The Alpha Lanterns are gone, the Guardians will be gone. I'm hoping it eventually becomes some kind of senior Lantern governing council. Probably with people like Guy, Kilowog, Stel just to name a few. It would be a new and interesting dynamic as the Corps suddenly must find itself self-sufficient, and figure out where to go from there.

I agree that would be more interesting, has been a long time coming, and would help set up the Legion future.

I'm still voting for Big Obvious Reboot Status Quo button.

One other observation. In the big Third Army story advertisment, unless Fatality suddenly became white, Carol is a Star Sapphire again. Replacing Fatality on the New Guardians? Also, her costume is now a great deal less freaking ridiculous. That's good to see. I'm a straight guy, and love me some T&A, but I really thought the Star Sapphire outfits were just classless.
