To be fair, right at that point, *anyone* caught up in that scheme would have felt that way about Beetle and Booster.

The second panel. The second panel. No, I'm sorry, that wasn't even funny. My stomach did a horrible painful jolt at that comment.

I'm going to go cry now.

Yeah, Tv Tropes calls it a Funny Aneurysm Moment.

A little joke becomes a "oh Ted, oh Max" freak-out and totally shifts the tone of the story.

Could just put the warning in to the community notes and be done with it, but where's the fun in that? :)

Everyone should get sucked into TV Tropes at least once. It's good for them!

When I'm at work and time slows to crawl, I find going to TV Tropes and hitting random sucks up at least an hour or two.

Wouldn't surprise me at all I'd while looking for a horrific maguffin to kick-off the events that led to the revelation of Max's machinations, someone at DC (Giffen perhaps?) remembered the frequent "Max is going to kill me!" throwaways used for comic effect, and added some irony to the horror of Ted Kord's murder by doing a sad call out to those panels by making the come true....not forshadowing as much as using the rich history of DC's characters and relationships, and making something explosive, and, as explosions often are, painful out of that very richness. Ted's death hurt bad....he wasn't being used much by then, but his death served as a shocking point of departure for this new story arc that served as both a poignant reminder of what happens when we take a friend for granted, and for some growth for every one his death touched....most especially Booster, whose evolution in his own book has finally given him the gravitas and maturity of a of a true hero who became something so much more than the one-joke straw man he was when he was created 25 years ago. It made me ill to lose Ted, but what it yeilded in character development for those hurt by it, and in the exploration od DC's rich history via the establishment of the Rip Hunter/Booster connecttion. But, DAMN, I miss Blue and Gold and still mourn for Ted.
